Alguersuari is the troll of the year in F1. He guaranteed that would have a seat in 2013 (already a long time ago), he´s always saying something like big news coming soon and things like that and then nothing happens. I´d like to see Jaime back in 2013 but i´m starting to have some doubts.

Alguersuari will be at Force India, I believe.

If you want to win, get a finn :thumbsup:

Happy for Bottas, hope he can score valuable points for Williams. Never been a fan of Bruno really.

Too be honest, Even if it would be a dream to have Kimi and Heikki together in Lotus, i don't believe MTV:s (the finnish channel) local support will be judging this choice of Grosjean or Kovy. I think its 75% safe to say Grosjean will stay with Lotus.

AMuS saying Maldonado signed a 5-year contract, and he'll bring EUR 185 million to the team :blink:

How is that possible? :confused:

Maldonado had signed this contract in 2010, accordingly there are 3 seasons left.

I thought it was about £30m a season for 5 years, which seems to tie up with AMuS's figure.

it's a really good thing to see young drivers like Bottas having a chance to demonstrate their talents,but we shouldn't expect him to do sth magical in his first season,he is a rookie after all,in the first races he may struggle a little bit then in the final races he may eat Maldonado! :)
A craven can be as brave as any man, when there is nothing to fear. And we all do our duty, when there is no cost to it. How easy it seems then, to walk the path of honor.

He's got a quite misterious message in his official page: "follow me soon". I do wonder what does that mean or if it means something at all.

Max Chilton is glad that Pic moved to Caterham...
