    what a race that was. never would’ve thought evans could get that win, i already thought it was gonna be vandoorne or palmer, but evans prved me wrong. great drive and well deserved. glad to see him doing so well. such a shame about pic and marciello and also daly. especially daly. he always gets one hell of a start but it just doesn’t come together for him. if you look where berthon ended up, daly could’ve easily got there aswell, as he was side-by-side with him before he got hit by that idiot canamasas. i know i sound like a biased fanboy, and i will admit that he is one of my favourite young drivers at the moment (if you’ve seen the second gp3 race at monza last year you know why i’m a fan) but it’s so terrible to see an exciting prospect do so bad. being at lazarus doesn’t help and i hope he can do what evans did and get to a better team next year.

    oh god, why lancaster? why not other talented people? lancaster is just another one of those experienced gp2 drivers, whose single-seater career should’ve been finshed by now. hopefully it’s only for the british grand prix, because it’s his home race.

    ellinas is probably the best bet. i’d hope for dalys sake that he’d move up, but i think he’s staying with lazarus for now, as he spent the two weeks between austria and silverstone in italy with the team. martsenko could also be possible, or perhaps one of their other gp3 drivers like mason for example.

    btw, don’t think i’ll be missing regalia too much. he didn’t do anything outstanding really.

    right, i’ll just go through every driver.

    evans – adopted pretty well from a not so good start to gp2. needs more time, and has it, as he’s still young.
    markelov – promising in german f3, but pretty useless so far in gp2.
    nasr – definately ready for f1. hopefully he’ll replace massa next year.
    leal – so far had a good season, but made a silly mistake in monaco. not sure what to make of him.
    marciello – looked rubbish before austria, we’ll have to wait and see if it was just a one-off result or the start of a better performance.
    coletti – after last year, looked like he was just cracking under pressure from leading the championship. but has too much experience, gonna be difficult to step up from gp2.
    palmer – one of the rich kids whose families pay for their drive. could be another chilton in the making but i don’t rate him very highly, seeing as he has a lot of experience which gives him an advantage.
    richelmi – not what you’d call f1 material, same boat as palmer but less sucessful.
    izawa – don’t know what to make of him. never expected him to finish in the points in austria but he was there all of the sudden. he’s much too old for any f1 future though.
    vandoorne – a bit inconsistent, but all in all very good driver. hopefully buttons replacement when he retires.
    abt – possibly the most overrated driver of the whole grid. really not impressed in any way by him. there’s the door to formula e over there, mate.
    regalia – needs more time to adapt but still seems lost in gp2.
    quaife-hobbs – looked good last year but not really this year. possibly his car that’s slowing him down.
    trummer – got a podium due to tyre strategy in bahrain but didn’t look like he’s gonna repeat it anytime soon.
    binder – not a very good driver. looked good in bahrain, but after that he was terrible, especially monaco.
    negrao – similar to his team mate. no promising talent has been spotted yet.
    haryanto – bad start to the season, mostly due to bad luck. good performance and a well-earned podium finish in monaco.
    rossi – very unlucky, just like like his team mate but looked better in austria. disappointed with him so far but the season is still long.
    de jong – usually at the back. can’t do better i’m afraid.
    ellinas – good performances from him so far, but needs to step his game up if he wants to keep that seat.
    canamasas – impressive start to his campaign. but still i don’t rate him highly. he was rubbish at caterham.
    cecotto – showed lots of maturity this season. but he’s got too much experience. not sure if any f1 teams are looking into him.
    berthon – never showed much pace, both in race and quali.
    daly – i’m a big fan of this guy. but unfortunately he’s got quite a dog of a car. did manage to overtake a lot of other cars in races though. once he fixes qualifying he’s on for better results, i’m sure of it. i hope a better team picks him up for the next season, or maybe even mid-season.
    pic – very very consistent. might do it like his brother and get to f1.
    sato – not really all that impressive.

    people who aren’t acing at the moment
    dillman – good. shame he couldn’t get a seat.
    lancaster – he should stick to endurance racing.
    jeffries – haven’t seen enough to rate him honestly.

    correction, only daly is confirmed for the whole season. the other two are just confirmed for barcelona.

    also, tom dillman will take over for negrao at this weekend. negrao has a back injury and is still recovering at the moment. he will most likely return to his seat at arden international after he’s recovered.

    It’s quite funny how people still write off marussia and caterham, we don’t know if they’ll be at the back of the grid again this year. also, we know mercedes have sorted out their engine the fastest, but that doesn’t mean it will be the quickest of them all. if renault sort theirs out they might just be quicker than the mercedes. we don’t know that yet.

    i’m not going to make any prediction until the end of fp3 in melbourne.

    all these numbers are so low. why do only hamilton and bottas go higher than 30?

    in my view, leimer, bird and calado are the only ones that should get an f1 seat in 2014. nasr has shown speed but he has not won a race yet. coletti shouldn’t get promoted because he’s just been dreadful in the second half of the season. palmer is too inconsistent, don’t understand the hype around him. ericsson and rossi should have another year in gp2.

    however, where could leimer, bird and calado end up? i only know calado has a good chance at force india. bird.. he’s a mercedes driver, so maybe a mercedes engined car? williams maybe? and leimer, i don’t think he’s a junior of any f1 team. unfortunately i can only see him as a test driver for an f1 team. lotus possibly? they took valsecchi last year, but they have their own young drivers program. we’ll have to wait and see.
