BBC PUNDIT EDDIE JORDAN'S 2010 REVIEW
"Peter Sauber has done a reasonable job after he took over the ashes of the BMW team and the Swiss built himself a solid outfit.
"People have questioned whether they have enough funding and the team did lose some key sponsorship but there has been enough.
"Sauber switched Pedro de la Rosa for Nick Heidfeld with five races to go and will have Mexican Sergio Perez in the seat next year.
"If I was to give vote to the most improved driver it would be a toss up between Mark Webber and Kamui Kobayashi.
"Kobayashi is a complete breath of fresh air, he's carefree, cool, adventurous and daring. He's just great to watch and I want to see how he will develop."
