Di Resta and Hulkenberg confirmed for Force India. Guess that means Sutil to Williams then...

EDIT can you edit the list in the main post, to keep things up to date, WeeMann? :)

Seems Rubens is back in the frame for the second seat at Williams. I hope he gets it.

Mind you, bigger news in that article is that Patrick Head is resigning from the board. :shock:

Robert Kubica has slipped on ice at his home and broken his leg. This is the same leg that was badly injured in his crash last year. Feel so bad for him :(

This could prove interesting. If it works it could mess up the front of the grid a little:

Lotus steal march on rivals with technical innovation

Still not used to the name changes between the teams. I read your post there and immediately thought of Kovalainen and Trulli at the front of the pack. :lol:

Yeah, it'll take a while, particularly as I'll only be seeing half of the races in full and half as fucking highlights...

I've got Sky, but not HD as I don't have an HD telly. As it happens, we're thinking of switching to Sky for our broadband, so I may push for an HD box and HD account as part of the deal. If they give it to me, great, if not I won't be paying for it as it's not worth the money for me otherwise.

Have we seen the last of Rubens? I hope not, but I would like to see more of Senna too:

Bruno Senna is the favourite to drive for Williams team

Senna's been confirmed.

http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport1/hi/formula ... 587505.stm

I'm happy to see him get a drive, but it's a real shame that Rubens left with a whimper, not a bang. :(

That only leaves the second HRT seat to be confirmed.

Good to see Bruno getting a drive, but there is something that doesn't sit right with me seeing someone called Senna drive for Williams. Maybe I need to stop living in the past :P

WeeMann wrote:That only leaves the second HRT seat to be confirmed.


According to Autosport, Trulli's seat at Caterham isn't confirmed and Vitaly Petrov may yet get it.

EDIT I agree about Rubens. Him and Trulli were the only two drivers still driving that were there when I started watching back in 1997. You could include Schumacher in that, but he doesn't count cos he had three years out!
