Renault’s F1 president Alain Dassas has admitted that winning a third successive world championship in 2007 is going to be “difficult”. Dassas said: “It is a fact that we are going to miss Fernando because he contributed a lot to help Renault to win these two titles (in 2005 and 2006).”

“We will have to see how the championship develops,” Dassas continued. “Both drivers are very good – they are not Alonso, but they are great drivers. “The biggest uncertainty is Kovalainen,” he said, “He knows what it feels like to win but he is still very young.”

“I am not involved in politics,” he answered, “but I do believe it will be difficult to win the title with Giancarlo.”

Someone’s having reality check and we truly appreciate it ! Also that it is stark in contrast with what Fisichella said earlier.

    Indeed, Heikki is a good bet long term, but you need a top 5 driver to have a go at the championship and Fisi is struggling to make into my top 10 these days.
