Hopefully, Spyker, and Super Aguri will still be there, as thier future does not look so bright.

I think he's not ready for the challenge, just remember what he did to Chandhok in the last GP2 race. My guess... Fisichella will take the seat. :T:@

Nakajima joins Toyota's 2008 shortlist
Sep.1 (GMM) A 22-year-old Japanese has reportedly soared to the top of the favourites list to replace Ralf Schumacher at Toyota next year. The German weekly Sport Bild claims that Kazuki Nakajima, currently placed by the Japanese giant at Toyota-powered Williams as a test and Friday driver, is being positioned as the best alternative to Schumacher for 2008.

He's Ready now LOL :@:2

!grin!

I think Nakajima has a good future as F1 driver, but it's early for him to join Toyota or Williams next year. It's better for him to stay another year in GP2.
But if Toyota thinks he will become the next Lewis Hamilton... &doh

Nakajima is a test driver with Williams, and he has impressed a lot till now.

I think the guy has a bright future ahead.

I agree with you. :T:@
My point is: he's still young and not experienced enough to become a F1 driver yet. He could pass through a lot of dificulties as Kovalainen did in the begining of this season.

yes, I also think that he won't make it next year, but there will be a seat for him in 2009.

As for Williams in 2008 I think that Rosberg will be accompanies by Liuzzi or Fisi. (although I prefer someone else)

Briatore is hoping that should McLaren be punished , he could get Alonso back to Renault. If Alonso stays at McLaren, the likely line-up at Renault is Kovalainen and Piquet. Fisichella is trying to get to Williams, even with having a much lower salary there.

Albers was spotted in the williams paddock by rtlgp at the monza and spa gp's from the past couple of weeks, so maybe he has a chance of a williams race or test seat!
