    Rightly or wrongly, I think they would chose Di Resta over Hulk.

    Is that shocking? If it is, it’s only really because there are so many Germans in F1 at the moment and over the past decade.

    And it’s not like McLaren have chosen not to take a German driver because they’re German.

    Is it true they tried to get Schumacher before he went to Ferrari, I remember reading something of the sort in an F1 Racing mag years back.

    I remember Mclaren being interested in Rosberg after 2007 and Vettel after 2008. Meh.

    @kingshark Didn’t McLaren run Jochen Mass?

    @f1enigma: McLaren line up Sergio Perez to replace Lewis Hamilton.

    Perez to Mclaren, I’d like to see that happen since Ferrari have no faith in him whatsoever despite being on the junior driver development program.

    If Perez wins a championship with Mclaren, it would be quite “funny”, but not from Ferrari’s perceptive though!

    Mind you I made a thread for this, totally forgetting about Bradley’s topic created like a week ago. :P

    Schumacher was supposed to go to McLaren, because of Mercedes. He chose Ferrari instead.

    I think Rosberg will go to Ferrari, Hamilton to Mercedes, Perez to McLaren and Massa back to Sauber. Schumacher will stay with Mercedes until he retires, I personally think he just wants to win a few more races to get to 100 race wins. I may be completely wrong

    @cocoonfxmedia – Why would Sauber take Massa? I get that Ferrari have influece over the team, but if they’re going to use it, then they’re going to use it to get Sauber to take Bianchi.

    He’s driven for them before and someone with his experience could assist Sauber.

    @cocoonfxmedia – Sauber don’t need experience. They need someone who can capitalise on the potential of the car, not someone who is a hundred and fifty points behind his team-mate.

    His teammate is quite a bit of a better driver than Perez or Kobayashi are, don’t you think. Frankly, I don’t think he’s done much worse than say, Button this season.

    That being said, I agree that current Felipe Massa doesn’t belong in F1, or at least certainly not in a non-new team.

    Button has 2 wins and a podium compared to his team mates 3 wins. Massa… doesn’t.

    I agree that Sauber would be mad to take back Massa. They have many better options.

    I can probably name eight drivers who would suit Sauber better than Felipe Massa: Alguersuari, Bianchi, Kovalainen, Frijns, Gutierrez, Juncadella, Serralles and Calado.
