I've been a fan of Kamui Kobayashi since his first race in F1, and I can even pinpoint the exact moment. When he ran Nakajima right off the track and into the barriers with a very risky pass, I knew I had a new hero. Since then, he has failed to disappoint. I don't honestly believe he's one of the best drivers yet, due to some inconsistency, but I can definitely see him in a top four drive. He's got the speed and passing ability, and his English isn't half-bad either!
I'm not saying he's got his choice of drives, and it seems that he's already committed 2012 to Sauber.
Sauber has been a good place for him to be so far. However, he won't be fighting for podiums there, and I believe he has the ability to do so. So, where might he fit in best, and who would he replace there? Let's see.
