Poor Luca

The fans at Spa were a little upset with his recent performance...

I can't say I blame them - coming in last in the past 2 races.

Sounds like he may be replaced by Fisichella before the Italian GP and Fisichella would finish the season in the Ferrari...those are the rumors anyway.

Good to know that he will be replaced. Ferrari brass would be castrated if he replicates his performance in Monza.

Yeah thats what i heard too.

It seems if you wanted to drive the red car sometime in your life, this is the opportunity to take it for a spin.

He's not very good. Jeremy Clarkson passed him when they were racing a few years ago. Luca was in a Challenge Stradale and Clarkson a 996 GT3. It was pretty humiliating for a Ferrari F1 test driver in (what was at the time) their premier street car to be beaten by a TV host in a Porsche.

not a photoshop - pretty sure Speed cut to it at one point during the race.

Badoer says media forced him out
Luca Badoer has claimed that negative press coverage of his two races encouraged Ferrari to drop him in favour of Giancarlo Fisichella.

Then Nelson Piquie Jr should blame the "forums" forced him out....

c'mon Luca (i mean Badoer, not the Ferrari boss...) everyone and even Ferrari can see what's real...the same car can't be 2 secs off pace....even with slight different set up....that just proves you are not a good F1 driver knows what you want for car set up and your true pace.....

Even Alguersuari is not that off pace from Sebastian Buemi on this F1 debut....Hell..he even finish better than his teammate....who Sebastian has much more F1 experience....

Two race consectively off pace and dead last...there's no excuse Luca....
