Ok, if I was Nobbie Haug, I'd give De La Rosa the second seat at Force India, next to whoever they want to keep (I'd keep Sutil, Fisi's time is over, plus Sutil has far more potential to earn some money for Force India and be in the organization if they want to replace Kovy in 2010) while putting Paul di Resta in GP2 at ART Grand Prix (if possible). He also has potential, but probably isn't ready for a year in F1 yet.

Makes sense, doesn't it? Everyone seems to regard Sutil in higher regard than they should have for him, so naturally, if someone like Williams (££) or Toyota (£££££££££) want him, or if McLaren want to do a bit of in-house swapsies now they practically have a B-Team, Sutil is the right man to keep the job.
As for di Resta, I hope he gets a good GP2 seat.

But yeah, everything I wrote there is based on logic and sense, so could happen.

yeah, i would agree:

ART already have their line up for 09 (Hulkenburg/Maldonado), so put di Resta at iSport or Campos and put de la Rosa as a FIF1 driver to give Sutil and put Fisi as FIF1 TD.

I think they should drop Fisi or put Karun Chandok as a test driver beside Fisi. I think de la Rosa would do well beside Sutil

According to Turun Sanomat, Toro Rosso's drivers next season will be Buemi and Bourdais. The decision will be announced in December. Buemi has been a part of Red Bull's junior training and this is also a way to show that it's working. Sato was a candidate for a race seat as well but Red Bull thought that Bourdais performed better.

Since it's from TS I'd say that it's quite credible, but it's still silly season until it's officially confirmed.

I hope this is right. Bourdais should get at least another year in F1...

Turun Sanomat tells that Honda has decided to replace Barrichello with Bruno Senna. Senna will also bring sponsors with him to the team. Barrichello has started discussions with Mateschitz and is now trying to get to Toro Rosso even though the seats there are pretty much reserved to Buemi and Bourdais already.

I think the major thing that can bring Honda is sponsors as the team get more help in their work.Honda has not performing good from 2007 and from 2007 they have no sponsors :)

Not official, but very likely as TS is usually right with their information. We should expect some official driver announcements next month.

Doesn´t matter, he´s better than Rubens anyway and younger. All Rubens has done the past few months is whining.

Rubens was quicker than Button...why get rid of your fastest driver?

Anyway...Honda are out next year. So who, if anyone, will buy the team?
