Nick Heidfeld, Hungarian Grand Prix
Well, that was one way to make an exit. Nick Heidfeld was called up by Lotus-Renault (to become plain Lotus next year) after Robert Kubica's horrible pre-season accident. Like the team's 2011 car his season started well, then it all went up in flames and, er, exploded. They didn't let him drive the car again after this.
