You would think that Nick Heidfeld is pretty fed up with the way he has had to face up to pretty tough teammates in his career. Since his debut season alongside Jean Alesi in 2000, Heidfeld has squared up to seismic opposition in the other car, including Kimi Raikkonen, Felipe Massa, Jacques Villeneuve - and now Robert Kubica.
It would be enough to send some less determined drivers into a bout of paranoia, questioning what they have done to deserve it. After all, they say that no teammate is better than the one who is two seconds slower.
But despite the challenges thrown at him, Heidfeld has proved himself to be more than worthy opposition against each of the stars, mostly out-qualifying and out-racing each one. And yet, with the job well done, he found everyone ignoring his achievements as his teammates stole the limelight.
