With regards to Heikki, he won’t leave Caterham unless he can get a better seat. He is still dearly in love with Formula One (you can tell that), but wants to be winning (as every driver does), and so if he could move to a better team he would. Unfortunately for him, nothing seems’ to have materialised, and the talk in the paddock has moved him from Ferrari to Sauber, back to Caterham, poor sod.
For some reason, I just cannot see Hulkenberg fitting in at Sauber, he just.. I don’t know, I don’t think it would look right. Even with all the speculation, I would be very surprised if this happened, but happy as well, I like Hulkenberg, and I like Sauber, but I just can’t see them together.
I’m still amazed so few people are mentioning Alguersuari in any seat for next year. Both Eddie Jordan and the Sky F1 team have left him out of their predictions, even though he has said he will be driving next year. I can’t imagine he would lie about that? What is the point, surely it would just make other teams not even consider offering him a place. He won’t drive for HRT, he refused that seat this year, and would not go there now, plus he has stated the team is somewhere between fifth and seventh in the Constructors Championship, which is Mercedes, Sauber of Force India. Personally, I think Alguersuari should go to Sauber and leave Hulkenberg at Force India, it just seem’s a better fit to me, but then again, I don’t blame Hulkenberg wanting to jump the sinking ship.
On a side note, them calling Sutil back would be funny. Their team boss is wanted for being in billions of dollars of debt, and one of their drivers wanted for GBH! Might as well just go to a local jail and take all the inmates as mechnics/staff to make it better!
I can see di Resta staying there next season, but don’t feel he should. He’s had two years now, but what has he really done? Yes he’s had a few good races, but I have to echo exactly what @prisoner-monkeys and @raymondu999 have said about him.
Oh, and one last thing, @prisoner-monkeys – Sauber may have a tendency to ‘mature’ their drivers, but can you see Kaltenborn putting up with someone like Grosjean or Maldonado? ;) She’s a tough one, it’s how she got to where she is!
