He didn't do that bad considering he started at the back of the grid due to an engine change.

Not sure why they dropped Jamie Green to the 2008 car as he usually pushes for wins and has been a contender for the title in the last 2 season.

Nah, just means the drivers infront of him were a waste of space too.
5 DNF's so he only made up 4 places in a current car vs people in older equipment.

and most importantly, he'll never deserve and apology ;)
