Webber vs. Heidfeld

Here we have perhaps two of the most unluckiest guys on the grid, but at least one of them will be having a good day, when the next 24 hours are up.

Mark Webber

Poor Mark has been out of the limelight for a good few months now, with just the odd headline now and then regarding his recovery progress. However, even then it seems like he's an immensely popular chap. An aimiable Australian who doesn't hold back and says things as he finds them, we can always rely on Webber for a dose of reality. However, the bad luck that follows him does put a bit of a downer on things. You can rely on Webber to draw the short straw but at least we know he'll be open and honest about it afterwards.

Nick Heidfeld

For the first time in a long time, we glimpsed a real insight into the psyche of Heidfeld, when he stood on the podium in Canada - second to team mate Kubica. Having worked for success for so long, to be within arm's length of a win and to have to concede to someone in equal machinery must have hurt. But Heidfeld showed he's made of tough stuff and worked through his qualifying demons to bring himself back to being the consistent chap we know and love. Personality wise, he's a bit of a mystery, but we do know he doesn't answer his comments!
