Force India and Marussia’s drivers are listed as yet to be confirmed, as is the identity of Kimi Raikkonen’s team mate at Lotus.

It also indicates that Nico Rosberg will use the number nine at Mercedes next year and new team mate Lewis Hamilton’s car will bear the number ten.

    Not at all bothered by HRT failing to make the grid. F1 has been going backwards for some years now with the grid being filled by no-hope teams and pay for seat drivers. I would much rather see a smaller grid with competitive teams and see some actual racing rather than a procession of blue flags telling the no hopers to get out of the way. Also, the number of rookies and pay for seat drivers should be limited by the FIA, the number of drivers who are actually deserving of a seat is declining every season to the never ending procession of rookies and drivers who bring big fat cheques with them.
