F1 Fanatic - F1
Based on his recent tests in FR 2.0 and Formula 3, I’d say it’s likely that Max Verstappen will drive in F1 at some point. Maybe 2018 is too soon.
2018 grid…interesting!OK I’ll have a go.
1.Hulkenberg-Won two races in 2016 when he joined the Marlboro squad.He’ll be hoping for a more productive season this time…
2.Bianchi-Joined alongside Hulk in 2016 (Alonso went to Mclaren before retiring in 2017)and finished 3rd overall,then 4th in 2017.Hopefully he can produce better results this time around.
3.Hamilton-won the 2015 title and has stayed on the Mercedes team
4. Rosberg-Won the 2017 title (sadly for Alonso)and stays at Merc for another year.
5.Vandoorne-replaces the retired Alonso(who replaced the retired Button)and hopes for some succes.
6.Magnussen-deserves his seat on merit, 2 wins in 2015, 5 in 2016 and about 2 in 2017.
7.Massa-remains at the team he and valterri bought back to life in 2014 and 2015.
8.Nasr-won his debut race for this team in 2016 and has 12 podiums since then.
9.Raikkonen-replaced Seb and nearly won the 2017 title
10.Da Costa-After 2 promising years at Toro Rosso he is given this amazing chance.Poor Dan…
Marussia-have become a strong mid-field team since 2016
11.Valsecchi-got the teams best result of 4th at Sepang in 2017 and got them to 6th in the championship alongside Kamui
12.Razia-Replaced Kobayashi in 2017 and got a best result of 7th in 2017.
13.Grosjean-with nowhere else to go he is stuck at Enstone.
14.Vergne-Replaced Maldonado in 2016 after Toro Rosso gave him the boot.
15.Gutierrez-With no other options Esteban is stusk at FI
16.Bottas-Same reason as Guterrez
17.Petrov-the team is now reliant on Russian money
18.Sirotkin-Same reason as Petrov
19.Kvyat-Memories of a 2nd at Brazil 2016 keep him here.
20.Sainz Jr.-His second season at Toro Rosso
Caterham-moved up the grid in 2016 and 2015 but a disatrous 2017 puts them at the back of the grid again
21.Kobayashi-He returns to the team after three years at Marussia.
22.Perez-After the 2017 mishaps Caterham sign Perez in a bid for improvement.
The Vettel Incident
At the end of 2016 Vettel attempted to get a contract at Ferrari only to find out that they had signed Hulk and Bianchi already.While he was gone Red Bull signed Kimi to replace him and left poor Seb without a drive…
2018 is actually quite hard to predict!2015 or 2016 are a little easier but hey, I guess no prediction is easy!
