That’s a topic we had last year, and it was a very good one.
Just write who your f1 team would consist of, if you owned one. Drivers, test drivers, young drivers, team principal, technical director, race engineers etc.
So, my would be:
Drivers: Robert Kubica and Jenson Button. Kubica is one of the fastest drivers on the grid and probably the most consistent one, while Button is calm, smart, and also consistent. And he has really convinced me this year – I have to admit, I didn’t even imagine him being so fast this year against Lewis. He has shown several times that he is almost as fast as him.
Test drivers: Gary Paffet and Pedro de la Rosa. Both very experienced and good car developers. And de la Rosa doesn’t seem very slow this year, so in case he’d have to replace one of the drivers he probably wouldn’t be much worse and would still score points.
Young drivers programme: Jules Bianchi, Daniel Ricciardo, Kazim Vasiliauskas. All very fast and promising.
Team principal: Martin Withmarsh. This was a tough one.
Technical director: Adrian Newey. But he’d be told that the car MUST be very realiable, even if it’s a bit slower than it would be.
Race engineers: Andrew Shovlin for Button and Rob Smedley for Kubica.
That’s it. And the car would probably be looking like this year’s Renault, except for the stupid Total red colour.
