Japanese F3 champ Nobuharu “No relation to Hiro” Matsushita is the second driver at ART, definitely fits the mold of “young driver” better than Izawa did, though his test times in December were a little on the slow side.1st February 2015, 23:01 at 11:01 pm #291409

Somewhere in the world, Will Buxton jumped up a hundred feet in the air in celebration.
This makes up for re-hiring Brian Barnhart, and if CFH needed a driver to replace Mike Conway as the road course specialist, they got a really good one.30th January 2015, 15:45 at 3:45 pm #291202
Nato is gonna fill the role of Decently Quick Monaco Specialist left behind by Coletti and Richelmi just fine, perhaps even better.
Ocon is still on the cards for a GP2 move, but he just doesn’t seem a good “fit” anywhere on the surface except DAMS, which is already booked up with last year’s Red Bull juniors (Lynn has now parted ways).23rd January 2015, 19:09 at 7:09 pm #290769
Trident turned Cecotto into a top-5 driver and got the most productive season out of Canamasas, who aren’t on the same caliber as Marciello by any stretch. And Marciello has already tested for Trident before in 2013 post-season testing and set the fastest time on the first day.
It may be political, but this is a solid move by a team who, just a year and a half ago, had to take Ricardo Teixiera as a paying option.16th January 2015, 2:09 at 2:09 am #290333
And that’s all before we decide where Esteban Ocon is hanging his hat.8th January 2015, 19:29 at 7:29 pm #290145
So were Caterham Racing as a whole as a team on their way out the door.8th January 2015, 17:22 at 5:22 pm #290136
So much for the deadwood mediocrities. Holy post-watershed vocabulary, that’s a strong team DAMS put together.5th December 2014, 20:38 at 8:38 pm #288194
Rodolfo Gonzalez says he’s committed to Indycar in 2015 with multiple offers on the table.
Good thing he’s not buying his ride via a ton of Citgo Cash but rather his amazing track record in series such as GP2!

Nico Hulkenberg confirmed. In the post-Bellof era, a deal like this is a very rare yet pleasant occurrence.27th November 2014, 14:41 at 2:41 pm #287529
@jb001 I know about Valsecchi’s test with SPM. I’d just assumed Leal would be moving to North America this season given his connections to Juan Montoya.
In reality, I’m not too bothered by any of these moves. GP2 and WSR had roughly the same amount of top-level F1 prospects last year, and its not as if the midfield of 2nd and 3rd-year drivers in WSR is leagues better than the midfield of 2nd to 5th-year drivers in GP2. With drivers like Latifi, Stuvik, Kirchhoefer, Ocon, Bernstorff, and Stanaway testing this week, if they were to all somehow make the GP2 grid next year – that’s a very good haul of promising talent coming into GP2 to join those who will likely return – Vandoorne, Marciello, Gasly, and Evans.27th November 2014, 0:05 at 12:05 am #287502
I thought for sure that Leal would have been jumping to Indycar or Indy Lights.23rd November 2014, 20:11 at 8:11 pm #287007

For the record, Speed no longer exist and NBC Sports got the F1 rights back in 2013.
I’m very glad Will is sticking around with them – for all the undeserved flack they get for being forced to run in-race advertisements in a market where NASCAR and IndyCar can’t run without commercial interruption, or for “dumbing down” the coverage to actually try and attract new viewers, their coverage has been the best it’s ever been in the States.
I’m just wondering who will replace him in the GP2/3 booth.
