    Oh, absolutely. I just find it interesting that the top 4 or 5 “best-investment” drivers are the ones getting a lot of praise and future-champ hype this season, while the group of VET, BUT and RAI are close to the bottom – literally overrated. (Don’t throw stuff at me, I’m BUT and RAI fan).

    I have no idea how they come up with the figures (this Business Book GP), and it’s not really the point of interest for me. What is of interest, and mostly just for fun, I decided to see how much money every point scored by individual driver costs relative to the salary. This is the result (after the Hungary GP):

    Daniel Ricciardo – Red Bull – €5,725 – 131
    Valtteri Bottas – Williams – €7,895 – 95
    Kevin Magnussen – McLaren – €27,027 – 37
    Daniil Kvyat – Toro Rosso – €41,667 – 6
    Nico Hulkenberg – Force India – €57,971 – 69
    Nico Rosberg – Mercedes – €59,406 – 202
    Jean Eric Vergne – Toro Rosso – €68,182 – 11
    Sergio Perez – Force India – €68,966 – 29
    Felipe Massa – Williams – €100,000 – 40
    Lewis Hamilton – Mercedes – €104,712 – 191
    Fernando Alonso – Ferrari – €191,304 – 115
    Sébastian Vettel – Red Bull – €250,000 -88
    Jules Bianchi – Marussia – €250,000 – 2
    Jenson Button – McLaren – €266,667 – 60
    Romain Grosjean – Lotus – €375,000 – 8
    Kimi Raikkonen – Ferrari – €814,815 – 27

    I guess, the cheaper the points come, the better the investment.

    on the bright side, you have front row seats right there!
    seriously though, if anyone expects a better situation at Sochi Grand Prix must be delusional. they spent over 50 BILLION on the games, and that’s what we’ve got.

    still no official word? what the hell are they waiting for? if MAG already knows his number, surely at least some of the other drivers do too?

    1. Ferrari
    2. Mercedes
    3. Red Bull
    4. Force India
    5. Lotus
    6. Williams
    7. McLaren
    8. Sauber
    9. Toro Rosso
    10. Marussia
    11. Catherham

    in addition to regularly looking at lineups, i also consider their marketability and pr appeal. hence Lotus at 5: lots of people will be interested in how this pair progresses. compare that to Sauber or (possible) Catherham, that are “meh” at best.

    Kvyat’s 26 is nice and all, but if I were his manager, I’d see it as a huge lost opportunity marketing wise. 55 for Ru55ia would be golden for years to come.
