Gravity would be a great buyer but would Kubica be replaced? I hope the team principle is not Flavio as it would ruin their name. I think Villenueve would be good but I wonder what engines would be used. 2010 season hasn't even begun and so far it's very good to see new faces and teams.

it seems of late, that just about anyone can start up a team and find a way on to the grid! yet teams with experience such as sauber, lola cannot get a place. whatever happened to bernies and fias rules?

Next thing you know my granny will be likned to this outfit. If getting a ride with the new outfit requires no recent seat time, I vote for Rene Fonck who possessed far superior hand-eye coordination skills than M. NewVillage. :D

I liked Villenueve, he was an entertaining driver when he was in F1. But, I would rather see new drivers now given the chance than to see former drivers coming back, regardless of how successful they previously were.

Villeneuve was a flop the last time he made a comeback and this time I fear, will be worse. Grip levels far exceed anything he's used to in F1 in the past and he couldn't handle the G's the last time. Give a younger guy the seat.
