108 comments on 2010 F1 drivers and teams

  1. Alonso is going to Ferrari. Having a 2010 contract doesn’t mean you are going to be racing for that team, it just means that team is going to have to pay you off.

    Massa is staying at Ferrari if fit to race in 2010 otherwise they will keep Raikkonen.

    If Raikkonen does leave Ferrari then he will probably go back to McLaren and replace Kovalianen.

    Lotus will go to Malaysia. It call 1Malaysia F1 Team.

    • malaysian said on 5th October 2009, 10:58

      ehemmm…. lotus owned by malaysian which is proton… the team just use that name because of it is already a big name in f1… the team owned by malaysian company which is for sure was malaysian…… malaysia boleh!!!(malaysia can)

      • Arshy_toyota fan said on 18th October 2009, 13:20

        Proton only bought a portion of the old lotus rnd and technology. and If you drive a Proton, you would know that it over steers all the time at any corner, when you try to take it in sport mode. So Proton owning Lotus is not the point, and BTW, the Lotus F1 team has nothing to do with Proton.

        can anyone confirm if Timo has the contract for 2010. I hear Toyota is trying to get KIMI in their team. who gets out then…?

  4. I just have two questions, How up to date is this list? and is there really only 5 drivers with 2010 contracts?

  5. My take on 2010 line ups
    McLaren
    Hamilton + Raikkonen
    Ferrari
    Alonso + Massa
    Brawn GP
    Button + Rosberg
    Red Bull
    Webber + Vettel
    Renault
    Kovalainen + Kubica
    Toro Rosso
    Buemi + Alguersuari
    Williams
    Barrichello + Hulkenberg
    Force India
    Sutil + Liuzzi
    Toyota
    Glock + Trulli
    USF1
    Wurz + Summerton
    Manor
    Klien + Davidson
    Campos
    De La Rosa + Petrov
    Lotus
    Fauzy + Senna
    BMW Sauber (Qaudbak)?
    Heidfeld + Fisichella

  6. Its hard to predit the new teams, as they are not so heavily rumoured.

    Brawn
    Button+Rosberg

    Red Bull
    Webber+Vettel

    Mclaren
    Hamilton+Kubica

    Ferrari
    Alonso+Massa

    Toyota
    Trulli+Glock

    Williams
    Barrechello+Hulkemburg

    Renault
    Riakkonen+Grosjean

    Force India
    Sutil+Liuzzi

    Torro Rosso
    Buemi+Alguesuari

    BMW Sauber(Or whatever they’ll be called)
    Heidfeld+Klien

    Heres the rumours for the new teams…

    US F1
    *Jaques Villeneuve
    *Juan Pablo Montoya
    *Danica Patrick
    *Brendon Hartley
    *Scott Speed

    My guess is that it will not be Villeneuve or Montoya, probably not Danica either. It may well end up being 2 drivers not mentioned above.

    Campos F1
    *Pedro De La Rosa
    *Jaime Alguesuari
    *Alex Wurz
    *Lucas Di Grassi

    I think:
    De la Rosa+Di Grassi

    Manor

    I have actually heard nothing about this team. Litterally nothing, apart from their entry.

    Lotus

    The same goes for Lotus unfortunately.

  7. Dennis said on 2nd October 2009, 11:57

    Well Red Bull, Toro Rosso and Ferrari are certain.
    Redbull
    Vettel + Webber
    Toro Rosso
    Buemi + Alguersari
    Ferrari
    Alonso + Massa

    The other teams have a few certainties but a lot of guesses here.
    McClaren
    Hamilton (certain) + Raikkonen ( if not of to go compete in the rally championship)
    Williams
    Hülkenberg (quite certain, really exciting!) + Barrichello (if Button and Brawn Gp can work things out)
    Brawn Gp
    Button (almost certain) + Rosberg (rumour, could also go to McClaren but will leave Williams)
    BMW
    Heidfeld + I have no idea
    Toyota
    Glock (not certain but seems like it) + Anyone but Trulli, possibly Kovalainen.
    Renault
    Grosjean (not certain but he doesn’t do bad) + Kubica (probably the announcement for next week).
    Force India
    Sutil+Liuzzi (no idea about both of them but especially Sutil isn’t doing bad, although he does destroy a few cars more than he should)

    The other teams and drivers: no idea.
    Some drivers to take into account: Vitaly Petrov, Lucas Di Grassi (excellent Gp2 drivers), Neel Jani ( I think he was talking with one of the new teams, don’t hear much about him anymore), Andy Soucek (possibly Campos??).
