KO KO B YEAH SHEEEE !!!
Kamui Kobayashi is one quick little dude, and he continues to impress me.
I'm glad you asked. See, Kobayashi drove his Sauber almost all the way to the end of this weekend's European Grand Prix in Valencia on a single set of tires. That feat alone would be impressive enough, but Kobayashi was keeping his (seriously out-gunned) Sauber ahead of (2009 world champion) Jenson Button's McLaren-Mercedes and just behind Sebastian Vettel's Newey-designed Red Bull and (2008 world champion) Lewis Hamilton.
With seven laps to go, Kobayashi came in for a mandatory stop, switching out to fresh rubber. He re-joined the action just behind (2005 and 2006 world champion) Fernando Alonso and Sebastian Buemi, who were battling each other for 7th spot.
7th place is a good position for a Sauber driver, but the man from Japan wasn't done ... just watch.
WATCH CLOSELY AND YOU MIGHT SEE A TORCH BEING PASSED
That was Kamui Kobayashi putting an authoritative pass on Fernando Alonso, widely considered to be among the best Grand Prix drivers in history, and the guy who finally drove the stake into Schumacher and Ferrari in their prime.
Great stuff, Kamui - AMAZING! I can't wait to see what the future holds.
