I keep an eye on a few of them who aren't necessarily mainstream (ie, an F1 test driver)

- Alexander Rossi
- Kevin Korjus
- Felipe Nasr

Are another three to look out for

Mitch Evans will race in GP3 again, with MW Arden. In that team and with Webber's support he has to be title favourite.

thanks for all the info people
it is good to see that there is alot of young talent comming through the junior formula's. F1 will have plenty of good talent in the furture.

I was going say there was a lack of spanish driver's but most spanish boy's go motorcycle racing.

I see you have a tough competition from Jamie O'Leary :p

I don't see :blink: Haven't got paypal and stuffing €1 to sd-what ever reader doesn't work :<>:

Here's the PDF file: http://www.mediafire.com/?j5wcjb3fb62olfi

Good work Phil. Just stay ahead of that guy :P

Thanks iceman and thanks Phil :thumbsup: There are so many names unknown to me, but David Zhu got my interest. How long before we see the first Chinese in F1. I don't think Zhu will be the first, but China is so big and I would imagine, since they already have a GP, they would like to see a Chinese driver competing there on the highest level of motorsport too.
