    Make your predictions on which drivers will move and to which team !

    My predictions are

    Red Bull : Vettel & Raikkonen
    Ferrari : Alonso & Ricciardo
    Lotus : Grosjean & Di Resta
    McLaren : Perez & Button
    Force India : Sutil & Bianchi
    Williams : Bottas & Maldonado
    Caterham : Van Der Garde & Pic
    Toro Rosso : Vergne & Da Costa
    Marussia : Razia & Chilton
    Sauber : Hulkenburg & Guttierez

    Alonso & Ricciardo??? That’s mental.

    Red Bull – Vettel & Ricciardo
    Merc – Rosberg and Hamilton
    Ferrari – Alonso & Massa
    Lotus – Kimi & Hulkenburg
    Mclaren – Perez & Button
    Force India – Sutil & Di Resta
    Williams – Bottas & Maldonado
    Caterham – Kovaleinen & Pic
    Torro Rosso – Vergne & Da Costa
    Marussia – Chilton & Valsecchi
    Sauber – Bianchi & Guttierez

    What I would say is that if Ferrari do ditch Massa, then I think Massa will end up in Lotus and Hulk i Ferrari.

    Sorry Di Resta.

    I have a feeling things will stay largely static before a hectic 2015 market. This will allow teams to easily move into the new formula without the complications of unknown driver parity. However, the wild card team is Lotus, mostly for Grosjean, but also until Raikkonen commits or goes to Red Bull. But Lotus could be seriously lost without Kimi so I think they will push hard to keep him with the new investor’s backing. Also, arguably Mercedes now have the best current driver pairing (in this year’s perspective, 2013).

    Red Bull – Vettel, Ricciardo………..(Buemi)
    Mercedes – Hamilton, Rosberg (Bird, Hartley)
    Ferrari – Alonso, Massa (DLR, Marciello)
    Lotus – Raikkonen, Grosjean (Valsecchi, D’Ambrosio)
    McLaren – Button, Perez (Paffett, Turvey, Magnussen/Vandoorne)
    Force India – di Resta, Sutil (Calado/Nasr on FP1s, Daly in GP2)
    Toro Rosso – Vergne, da Costa (Sainz Jr, Kvyat)
    Sauber – Hulkenberg, Gutierrez (Frijns)
    Williams – Maldonado, Bottas (Mercedes engines – Abt, Wolff. Surely a space primed for rich drivers, e.g. VDG, Nasr doing well in GP2 2013)
    Marussia – Bianchi, Chilton (Nasr, Razia still cashless, Petrov similar, Ellinas in GP2)
    Caterham – Kovalainen, Pic (Rossi, perhaps some FP1s)

    If Grosjean is let go, it is hard to see who would replace him, although there are many worthy drivers around at the moment. Hard to imagine Valsecchi replacing Grosjean, with Coletti filling the same role after winning GP2, so hard to know where GP2 graduates will go in the next few years.

    Shouldn’t this be considered a duplicate thread? @keithcollantine

    This one has been around for longer:
