## 2014 Formula One Discussion

### Re: 2014 Formula One Discussion

I wonder how the qualifying will be in Austin without Caterham and Marrusia, the rules states that 6 cars are eliminated in Q1 and Q2 if 22 cars are entered, now we have just 18. Just 2 drivers eliminated in Q1 ? Or will they do something else ?

I'd assume 4 cars out in Q1, 4 out in Q2 and then Q3 with 10 cars.It is almost certain they won't drop just two in Q1.

Maybe his wife is expecting?

So here's what he posted on his Facebook:

"Let's fly to Austin today and the last "back to back" of this season. I prepared two surprises for you this weekend. Here's a hint for the first one #USGP #F1"

The hint is a YouTube video of the Friends intro song. Link

He'll be staying with Lotus, so that'll be the big news.

And the other surprise will probably be some sort of shoutout to his buddy Matt LeBlanc. Maybe a special helmet design?

Romain Grosjean's Facebook page wrote:Hi everyone,

You have always shown me, my family and my team support and courage through the good times and the bad. We have seen loss and injury of great people and friends, with a very tough season on and off the track.

That is why today we wish to share with you our happiness with the announcement of our second child! We are overwhelmed with emotion and joy, as we were with the news of Sacha. I hope you understand that we cannot give you anymore details as we would like to keep our family's life a little private!

Thank you again for all of your support.

Romain, Marion & Sacha.

Also his next "surprise" is to be revealed in two days.

And they've also announced Kobayashi will be one of its drivers. Roberto Mehri claims he should be racing in replacement of Ericsson (or Kobayashi).
