  1. I’m pretty impressed with Bamber – that’s his second new series in a couple of weeks, after debuting for New Zealand in A1GP, and he’s scored three podiums and a sixth place. And a good early outside bet for the main GP2 title this year?

  2. I have to agree with Andy — Earl Bamber might very well be in with a shot of a GP2 title if he ends up in the right team. With an Asia season behind him he should probably be all set for something great. :)
