It was interesting to note Gerhard Berger's comments this week on his departure from Toro Rosso. While it's all too obvious that the main issue was money, or more specifically the lack of extra funding on top of that provided by Red Bull, Gerhard made the point that now was the right time to get out - he couldn't see Toro Rosso bettering what they achieved in 2008.
Funnily enough that was a question I put to him towards the end of this season - was this going to be as good as it ever gets for STR? While he didn't actually support my thesis, he didn't jump up and down and insist that the upward progress would continue.
"I wouldn't want to go into this way of thinking," he said. "I think until the end of the year the most important thing for us is to stabilise the situation. If we would think now to do the next step on performance, I think we would be wrong, because we did two steps already at once.
