Piquet Unpeaked: The Junior, son of three time world champion Nelson Piquet, had another dismal day in Monaco. Rainy days continue in his still young but fledgling Formula 1 career. Unable to match the speed of his teammate Fernando Alonso, German born Nelsinho crashed out of Sunday’s event shortly after changing to dry tires. He may be benched before the season is over. Vultures hovering to feast on his seat include  Sato, Davidson and Grosjean. F1weekly would like to wish Nelsinsho all the best and hope he can turn a new leaf in his career in Canada in two weeks time.
