    I predicted this right after news came out that Kimi wont be racing.

    Multiple reasons, too stressful situation for debut, even if the driver is fast, no telling what will happen under pressure, and mainly, they lose the benefits that he gets from taking part in Young driver test given the scarcity of testing.

    THis can be a serious dent to Lotus’ championship hopes too. It would be best to give someone with some experience to drive, not ruin someone else’s chances for Young Driver’s test. As such they get very few opportunities. Someone like Heikki Koavolainen would be a good choice. D’Ambrosio would be another choice, but just feel that Heikki would be able to perform better and might give Lotus a flicker of hope for challenging Ferrari.

    This is one of the best permutations you can get.

    1. VET

    2.WEB

    3.***

    4.***

    5.ALO

    That leaves all drivers on 256 points!! Wonder if Vettel will yield then?

    ALO wins the championship because of positions!!

    Dont see any reason why Massa wont be at Ferrari next year. He has not been very good this year but he deserves another chance. Kimi had overshadowed him completely in 2007 but he came back well in 2008 and reversed the roles.

    I dont think Massa will quit as he knows he has nothing better to go for at the moment. The only hope for him would be Webber leaving which is possible, but I dont think that he would go from Ferrari where they inclined towards Alonso because he was performing better to a team which in Webber’s point of view are favoring Vettel no matter what.

    Williams would need to see if by better performance Hulk can get them more money than what their backers can. Same goes for Renault. If Renault had a better driver, they would have been fighting with Mercedes for Constructors Championship now.

    Rather than having to handle a new driver from scratch, they would now have a driver who has experienced all the circuits and is also more confident and better equipped in helping development along. Also the car could be developed keeping his driving style in mind to further benefit.

    Williams have gambled a lot of times because of financial backing. Nakajima was a prime example and his 2 years yielded nothing while Nico Rosberg at the same time established a name for himself.

    He has been much more responsible this year and Korea was his first crash. Even in Korea, it has to be remembered that he had mechanical problems and went off the circuit a few times was overtaken but every time he came back and took his position back.

    He needs to be given a seat in a competitive team with a competitive driver. His drives arlier in the year were very good and was fighting with Schumi in the points table. Also one cant forget his exemplary driving to hold off Hamilton behind him for more than half the race.

    We have to see that whenever the car has supported him he has been up there, like P3 last year on the grid for Brazil and Italy. Also if we are talking accidents Hamilton is not strange to them either. I feel that its just that back of grid has more accident and he has had some misfortunes coupled with demanding too much out of a car that had little to give(previous years and Korea) which has given him this reputation.

    Hi,

    I am Rahul from India. I started following F1 from 2002. I started by following Ferrari and have now also added Force India to the list. The drivers that I really like are Sutil, Hamilton, Vettel and Alonso.

    Currently I am studying to become an Engineer.

    Am eagerly waiting for the Indian Grand Prix nex year!!

    Rookie of the year for me has definitely been Kobayashi. He is in a team with limited resources, that is not guided by an immensely talented Barrichelo or Kubica, and yet has managed some good points.

    I am also pleasantly surprised at Chandhoks performance. He has been able to give his much famed team mate a tough fight, even though Senna won from him easily in GP2 in the same team.

    I wonder when something like BBC coverage will come to India. We have pathetic Star Sports coverage, that is nothing in comparison to the Pre/Post race analysis by Mark, David and Eddie.
