Chandhok – He’s shown small sparks of promise. He’s not World Champion material, but I think he could perform well with a better car: Williams, Force India, Sauber, etc.
di Grassi – I’m not sure about him. A year or two at the new teams should give him time to prove himself.
Senna – Unimpressed by him so far. To be honest, I think the “Senna” name goes some way to explaining why he’s here at all.
Kobayashi – During the first third of the season, it looked like he was a bit of a one-race wonder and not really up to it. Since then, he’s definitely impressed- World Champion in waiting in a few years time?
Petrov – I think he has more to give, but needs a bit more time. I hope he stays at Renault next season, and if he doesn’t improve, teams like Williams, Sauber and the new teams would take him.
Hulkenberg – I think he seems worse because of all the hype around him, but he definitely has potential. Another few of years in the mid-field and we could see him at McLaren or Red Bull.
