    2010 F1 Teams & Drivers Predictions:

    Brawn GP
    1. Button
    2. Rosberg

    Red Bull Racing
    3. Vettel
    4. Webber

    McLaren Mercedes
    5. Hamilton
    6. Raikkonen

    Ferrari
    7. Massa
    8. Alonso

    Williams Cosworth
    9. Barrichello
    10. Hulkenburg

    Renault
    11. Kubica
    12. Glock

    Force India Mercedes
    14. Fisichella
    15. Sutil

    Toro Rosso Ferrari
    16. Buemi
    17. Alguersuari

    USF1 Cosworth
    18. Sato
    19. Villeneuve

    Campos Meta Cosworth
    20. Senna
    21. De La Rosa

    Manor F1 Cosworth
    22. Davidson
    23. Kovalainen

    Lotus Cosworth
    24. Trulli
    25. Kobayashi

    Qadbak Ferrari (Formally BMW Sauber)
    26. Heidfeld
    27. Klien

    So there we go, I expect we’ll see a lot of the teams going for the experienced drivers as opposed to the rookies, given the lack of testing prior to the 2010 season. I think the least likely of those drivers to be correct is Villeneuve, but he is a World Champion and has a lot of experience so maybe he is worth a punt for one of the new teams…time will tell, what does everyone else think?

      Fisichella
      is staying at Ferrari as a test driver.
      personally i cant see kobayashi going to lotus as they apparently have a guy called, Fairuz Fauzy
      Kobayashi to go to Compos instead of Pedro De La Rosa as he will stay at McLaren as a test driver
      Agreed about Villeneuve would love to see him return though.

    Mclaren
    Hamilton ( has 2010 contract)
    Raikonnen ( most likely candidate if they can agree on wages)
    Kovalienen ( not very likely to stay they don’t want him because he is underachieving)
