Ok, so last year it was Fernando Alonso and Kimi Raikkonen. No other driver’s moves could be sorted out until those two had decided and announced what they were doing. Then it was Rosberg, Kubica, Button, Kovalainen and Barrichello.
So who is it this year? Ok, so there are a few less seast available this year, but who will set the merry go-round off?
Looking at seats certain to not be changed.
McLaren – Button, Hamilton
Mercedes – Rosberg
Red Bull – Vettel, Webber
Ferrari – Massa, Alonso
Renault – Kubica
Williams – Barrichello
Force India -
Toro Rosso – Buemi, Alguersuari
Lotus – Kovalainen, Trulli
Sauber – Kobayashi, Perez
So the most important man to the line up for 2011 is Adrian Sutil. He could drive for Mercedes should Schumacher retire, Williams if Hulkenberg or Maldonado don’t get the seat, Renault if Petrov goes or even stay at Force India.
For me, I can’t wait to see where he goes, and according to autosport, he is deciding his future in the next few days!
You could also say Vitaly Petrov. Glock, Sutil and Heidfeld are linked with that seat as well as the Russian rookie, so maybe he is the one who will set us off.
Once the second Renault seat is sorted out, then Williams, Mercedes, Virgin and Force India can sort it all out for 2011.
But who do you think is the driver that will set the 2011 line-ups off? Sutil, Petrov, or someone else?
