  1. Is this still up to date?

    1. Campos Meta have signed Bruno Senna

      1. Toro Rosso have signed Sebastien Buemi.

        1. Mercedes GP (ex-Brawn) signed Nico Rosberg and Nick Heidfeld

  2. The page was created last week, so yes. Only three drivers confirmed for 2010 so far.

  3. Best start to clear an 11th space on the list. here’s hoping, anyway.

  4. 2010 could well be the polar opposite of 2009 in that we’ve had next to no driver moves this year, but next year we could easily see a big reshuffle in some of the big names.

    I have to disagree with Keith’s assessment that Williams have let Rosberg down – in my opinion it’s the other way around. Nico always looked promising, but last year he was nowhere near convincing enough against Nakajima, throwing away a couple of critical scoring opportunities, whereas Nakajima dragged the car into the points on a couple of occasions that it should perhaps not have been there. If Rosberg does not improve in 2009 he may struggle to find a drive, as Williams will be compelled to keep Nakajima (or another Japanese driver) if they stick to their Toyota engine deal, and certainly young Hulkenberg looks promising for a race seat sometime soon.

  5. Hasn’t Vettel got a longer deal with Red Bull then?

  6. Got to agree with Paul that Vettel must be on a multi-year contract otherwise McLaren will snap him up in 2010. Then we’d find out how good Lewis is….

    1. I think we already know how good hamilton is. If he gets a decent car to drive, instead of a shed! i think the rest of the line up is unimportant because he’ll be the front runner anyway.

      Will be good to see him race against Button thoe because he will probably be a better backup driver for Hamilton than Kovalainen

  7. you forgot Brawn Racing and USF1

    1. Neither are confirmed yet.

  8. Ross Brawn GP is now.

    USF1 has already been disbanded. WOW the new name US Grand Prix Engineering just rolls off the tongue ah? What the ?!@#$@ <– the dollar sign is for Bernie.


  11. and what about Bourdais?

  12. this is not up to date coz it doesnt have the outher torro rosso driver and it doesnt have brawn g-p team

  13. this needs brawn gp and usgpe also the two that may come prodrive and hyundi

  14. Lola will be in next years season

  15. oh yea also that litespeed and lola. oh i almost forgot about isport!

  16. 7 new teams have submitted applications for the 2010 season. They are as follows:

    March Racing Organisation
    Team US F1

    Its unlikely that all 7 teams will be granted entry to next season however with the grid being expanded to 26 slots, at least 3 of them will be there.

  17. ok…. i cant staY UP 2 DATE WITH everything….

  18. The 2010 entries, apart from the FOTA ones, are these:

    » AT&T WilliamsF1:
    Toyota engine contract in place, alternatively with Cosworth
    » Campos Meta 1:
    possibly running Dallara-designed car, likely with Cosworth engines
    » Prodrive:
    allegedly with Aston Martin-badged customer Mercedes engines
    » Team US F1:
    Cosworth engines confirmed
    » Lola Grand Prix:
    Cosworth engines confirmed
    » Litespeed GP:
    with Mike Gascoyne
    » March Racing Organisation:
    likely with Cosworth engines; perhaps a joint effort with N.Technology
    » Team Superfund:
    with Alex Wurz; Cosworth engines confirmed
    » Epsilon Euskadi:
    with Joan Villadelprat and Sergio Rinland; likely with Cosworth engines
    » Brabham:
    backed by Franz Hilmer of Formtech, and possibly Colin Kolles; acquired the former Super Aguri base; no engine partner announced, but likely Cosworth
    » N.Technology:
    likely with Cosworth engines; perhaps a joint effort with March
