    Assuming HRT’s story is over, there’ll be 22 seats in F1 next year.

    Which 22 drivers do you think deserve those? No team relations, sponsors, whatever – just write the 22 names you think deserve to be on the grid.

    I’ll start:
    Alonso, Hamilton, Vettel, Raikkonen, Webber,
    Button, Massa, Grosjean, Rosberg, Hulkenberg,
    Maldonado, Bottas, di Resta, Vergne, Ricciardo,
    Alguersuari, Glock, Pic, Perez, Kovalainen,
    Wickens & Calado.

    Obviously nothing serious, no need for long thinking, no particular order. Just for fun.

    Not sure if Vettel has proved himself yet…;)

    Vettel, Alonso, Hamilton, Button, Raikkonen
    Webber, Massa, Rosberg, Maldonado, Hulkenberg,
    Perez, Grosjean, di Resta, Kobayashi, Vergne,
    Ricciardo, Valsecchi, Pic, Kovalainen, Bird,
    Alguersuari and Dario Franchitti.

    @Enigma My list is pretty similar to yours, I just would drop Vergne but leave Petrov, take Sutil back instead of promoting Wickens and promote Valsecchi instead of Calado.

    Alonso, Hamilton, Vettel, Kovalainen,
    Raikkonen, Button, Hulkenberg, Webber,
    Massa, Maldonado, Rosberg, Petrov,
    Grosjean, Perez, Glock, Di Resta,
    Sutil, Alguersuari, Ricciardo, Pic,
    Bottas, Valsecchi

    Similar to @girts, but I replaced Petrov and Bottas with Razia and Vergne. But I hope HRT stays so that there is some space for Bottas and Kobayashi.

    Alonso, Hamilton, Vettel, Kovalainen,
    Raikkonen, Button, Hulkenberg, Webber,
    Massa, Maldonado, Rosberg, Ρazia,
    Grosjean, Perez, Glock, Di Resta,
    Sutil, Alguersuari, Ricciardo, Pic,
    Vergne, Valsecchi

    Ferrari – Alonso Massa
    RB – Vettel Webber
    Mclaren – Button Perez
    Merc – Hamilton Rosberg
    Lotus – Raikkonnen Grosjean
    Sauber – Kobayashi Hulkenberg
    FI – Di Resta Sutil
    Williams – Maldonado Bottas
    Toro Rosso – Felix DiCosta Frijns
    Caterham – Kovalainen Pic
    Marrussia – Glock Bianchi

    Its unfortunate that Kobayashi wont be on thr grid .. and nor will Sutil. Also want to see Frijns on the grid but I doubt Red Bull really want him after a few of his statements regarding the RB young driver program

    22 cars just isn’t enough is it?
    Just realised I forgot Bottas. Sorry Sam, it’s back to the simulators for you…
    Even without my “fantasy” pick of Franchitti I’d want Glock, Frijns, Wickens and Bianchi in there too. With 26 cars, or a bit of driver rotation, it would be easy.

    I’d love to see Jules Bianchi get a shot in F1. He’s reasonably quick, very consistent, and has plenty of experience. I think he’s earned a shot at F1, and could be a real surprise to people.

    Sutil would be in my list, for sure.

    I’d say:

    Red Bull: Vettel, Webber / TD: Buemi
    Ferrari: Alonso, Massa / TD: Rigon
    McLaren: Button, Perez / TD: De La Rosa
    Mercedes: Hamilton, Rosberg / TD: Di Resta
    Lotus: Raikkonen, Kovalainen / TD: Valsecchi
    Sauber: Hulkenberg, Frinjs / TD: Gutierrez
    Force India: Sutil, Bianchi / TD: Razia
    Williams: Maldonado, Bottas / TD: Senna
    Torro Rosso: Da Costa, Alguersuari / TD: Vergne
    Caterham: Petrov, Van Der Garde / TD: Pic
    Marussia: Glock, Ricciardo / TD: Wickens

    Included test drivers as well, for the fun of it. :)

    This is a half-realistic list, to be honest. A fantasy one would include the likes of: Power, Pagenaud, Vilander and an Audi F1 team with Rockenfeller and Leimer at the wheels. And I’m sure I can think of many others.

    It’s not meant to be team-by-team – just the list of 22 guys who deserve to be on the grid and are the best 22 in the world, regardless of teams.
    @calum Brilliant!
