I think I'll make a few guesses:

Brawn: Button, Bruno Senna
Red Bull: Vettel, Webber
McLaren: Hamilton, Rosberg
Ferrari: Alonso, Massa
Williams: Hulkenberg, Heidfeld
Renault: Kubica, Grosjean
Toyota: Trulli, Glock
Toro Rosso: Buemi, Alguersuari
Force India: Fisichella, Sutil
Whoever buys BMW Sauber or takes up BMW Sauber's place: Kovalainen, Nelsinho Piquet
USF1: An american driver, Bourdais
Manor and Campos: Giorgio Pantano, Gary Paffett, Anthony Davidson, Vitantonio Liuzzi

Rubens to retire, Ferrari to boot Kimi in favour of Alonso, Nakajima to get sacked.

2010 Driver Line up report

Post by phil1993 » 13 Aug 2009, 17:06

After weighing up the drivers, I have this report to share with you

Vodafone McLaren Mercedes:
Lewis Hamilton
Heikki Kovalainen/Nico Rosberg: Not sure yet, Heikki fits the McLaren mould, but Mercedes want a German driver and Nico may be lured by the prospect of teaming up with a good friend and McLaren are likely to be better than Williams next year, but Dad Keke may not like the prospect of him being No.2 in the team

Ferrari
Felipe Massa
Fernando Alonso/Kimi Raikkonen: I still can't decide. Alonso has surely got the power here, he can't see Renault being competitive after 3 particularly dreary seasons for them and, although seemingly happy there, he seemed to gesture after Hungary that he was becoming unhappy there. Added to the fact that Ferrari should produce a beast of an F2010 (Name TBC) and major Spanish sponsors Santander heading there, the signs are that Nando will be in red next year. BUT, when you think Kimi is finished with F1, he produces a great drive (such as in Hungary), however, Felipe wasn't there to compare him against, and as Massa said from his sickbed, that was his win... Add the Jari Matti Latvala factor with Ford - he's not doing too well - and the fact Ford have offered Kimi a WRC test, it is likely he will drive for the works team for 2012 or even 2011, they would want him to do a full season before taking the plunge with a works team... and Kimi seemed really happy in Finland...

Renault
Heikki Kovalainen/Fernando Alonso/Romain Grosjean: This is dependant on where Heikki and Fernando stay or go, but the smart money is on Romain for a full season
Robert Kubica/Romain Grosjean: Kubica may head back to Renault after BMW's exit, but Grosjean would get the No.2 seat if Heikki/Robert/Nando are driving the No.1 car

Toyota
Jarno Trulli
Timo Glock

Red Bull
Sebastian Vettel
Mark Webber

Toro Rosso
Sebastien Buemi - will be given another season to develop
Brendon Hartley/Jaime Alguersuari - dependant on whether Alguersuari heads to Campos; if he does then Hartley will get the seat

Brawn GP
Jenson Button
Rubens Barrichello/Anthony Davidson/Kimi Raikkonen - Rubens' passion leads to some dispute with the team over being No. 2... Davidson would be key to fill the slot. However, with Kimi on the market, Brawn may snap him up... but the price tag may be too steep

Force India
Adrian Sutil - last chance saloon - it will be his fourth season; not many backmarker teams' drivers get 4 years
Karun Chandhok/Giancarlo Fisichella - In 2007 Chandhok looked a dead cert for 2010 with the introduction of the Indian GP and his rising stock with fantastic performances in GP2, however he dived in 2008 and has dropped lower in 2009 and with the delay of the race at India until 2011, Fisi may stay on for another year, unless he decides to retire and Vitantonio Liuzzi may partner Sutil

Williams
Nico Rosberg/Robert Kubica/Kazuki Nakajima: Rosberg will be No.1 if he stays, however, if Kubica doesn't join then Nakajima will be No.1 if Rosberg goes
Kazuki Nakajima/Robert Kubica/Nick Heidfeld: Kazuki will be No.2 if Rosberg stays and a Rosberg-Kubica line up would be a dream of Frank's. Heidfeld is also an outside contender due to his experience

USF1
Jacques Villeneuve: Looks a dead cert for 2010, has expressed his desire to race again, especially with F1 going back to less driver aids, no refuelling and slick tyres. Closest they will come to an experienced American
Alexander Wurz/Jonathan Summerton/Sebastien Bourdais/Rubens Barrichello: Wurz has been rumoured due to his Superfund money, and his contact with the USF1 founders, but he didn't seem to want to return as a driver, especially when he is Austrian and they have turned down two European GP2 drivers with lots of money. Bourdais is known to Americans due to his success in Champ Cars and his experience may help, especially once being away from the Red Bull regime, who have not been much help to him, in a similar position to Piquet: a driver with talent who was pressured by the team, and suffered some really bad luck. Jonathan Summerton has driven for Team USA in A1GP and is probably the best young American to suit the bill. Marco Andretti and Danica Patrick are also outside contenders, however, she has stated that she doesn't want to move to F1 in 2010 and Andretti is having a diabolical season in the IRL and past experiences about IRL to F1 drivers may teach him to stay there. Barrichello may also seek refuge here is he departs Brawn

Campos Meta
Pedro de La Rosa: expected to be announced next Friday
Roland Rodriguez/Jaime Alguersuari/Vitaly Petrov/Giorgio Pantano: Rodriguez has a lot of money, but not much success. Whereas Alguersuari would have money and some races under his belt. Petrov and Pantano are also outside bets due to their past strong relationships with Campos in GP2 and Petrov has strong Russian backing

Manor
Adam Carroll/Bruno Senna/Max Chilton/Nelson Piquet: The list is endless. Chilton has money but is young, Carroll seems to be favourite

Team X
Nelson Piquet/Nick Heidfeld/Robert Kubica

A strong rumor circulating in Germany is that De La Rosa and Bruno Senna are almost fix at Campos for 2010.

I would be delighted if true. Bruno is a great guy and good driver.
I really used to like him in GP2.

I think Senna is definitely one of the best Non-F1 single seater drivers.

The best 6 not in F1 are probably

N. Piquet Jr
B. Senna
A. Carroll
N. Hulkenberg
L. di Grassi
J. Bianchi
