Actually, Laith won yesterday in Abu Dhabi (last race of 2003 season) finishing with one picklefork - the other was ripped off during the race. Iimagine going 150mph 6 inches off the water...with your picklefork ripped off? Picture Tom and Jerry running St. Pete with their damage and adding 40mph and winning.
He finished 4th in the championship points after finishing second last year. He is the most exciting pilot on the F1 tour...he either crashes or stands on the podium. He had equipment woes this year as well. In short, he won't be racing offshore any time soon. He wants to be the first in/offshore World Champion....and he will be. BTw f1 is serious competition
