    I wonder why Trulli still wants to be a F1 driver… He had a great talent but lost his chance, A1-ring race with Prost was the symbol of his career.

  2. Doesn’t Hamilton’s McLaren contract end in 2012? I wonder what will happen in the next two years because I really can’t see him in any other team whatsoever.

  4. Should Ferrari be listed as no 3 and 4 as fernando came 2nd?

    • Keith Collantine (@keithcollantine) said on 3rd December 2010, 20:09

      No. After the team the drivers’ champion is racing for (in this case Red Bull), teams are assigned numbers based on the order they finished in the constructors’ championship.

    You all don’t know what your chatting about!! You all think u know but u dont

  12. ferrariproism said on 6th January 2011, 10:25

    Red Bull-Vettel Webber
    Mclaren-Hamilton Button
    Ferrari-Alonso Massa
    Mercedes-Rosberg Schumacher
    Renault-Kubica Petrov
    Williams-Barrichello Maldonado
    Force India-Sutil di Resta
    Sauber-Kobayashi Perez
    Toro Rosso-Buemi Trulli
    Lotus-Kovalainen Senna
    HRT or Villeneuve Racing-Klien Chandhok
    Virgin-Glock d’Ambrosio

    I think Trulli will not be at Lotus despite the 2011 FIA Entry List has him with Lotus. I think Senna will join Kovalainen. Bye Bye Liuzzi, Alguersuari, and Yamamoto. I also think that Jaques Villeneuve will buy HRT even though HRT said that the team is not for sale. I don’t think HRT will survive another year without a buyer.

    How come in this list Lotus have changed to Lotus Renault? is this not incorrect? surely Renault F1 is now Lotus Renault and Lotus is Team Lotus (provisionally I guess)

    • F12011EPICWIN said on 23rd January 2011, 9:04

      Lotus (Fernandres’ Team) will be using renault engines for 2011 so they were called “Lotus Renault” but they want the right to use the name “Team Lotus”. The Renault Engine deal was made before Lotus cars joined the Renault F1. So now Renault F1 is called “Lotus Renault” and the Malaysian team is called “Team Lotus-Renault” So technically there are two Lotus teams on the grid in 2011 and both are powered by Renault engines. Yes, it’s never confusing, I know.

  14. Where’s Bruno Senna ??????
    What’s he up to…..

  15. Sameer Cader said on 28th January 2011, 0:08

    Bruno Senna has confirmed that he will not take part in f1 for 2011
