"who departed the F1 paddock with his tail between his legs back in the summer after blowing the whistle on the 'Singapore-gate'"

Once again Crash has got its facts wrong. Piquet was sacked by Renault because he was useless. Only then did he (and his father) choose to publicise his story about crashing the car, as an act of revenge. Calling him a whistleblower is an insult to genuine whistleblowers.

Grosjean made very little impression other than being the man that had more spins than Nakajima. Wouldn't have thought Renault would want to keep him but who else would honestly take the second Renault seat? If I was a driver I wouldn't want to

7 Grand Prix's was enough time to make an impression. Sadly Grosjean didn't. At all! He always knew he was driving for a 2010 seat - & yet he still failed to deliver in spectacular fashion.

At least one of the seats will be reserved to a Gravity driver me thinks. Grosjean could still be in the running although he hasn't shown he deserved a seat last season. His "don't let me down" speech does seem a bit desperate. The good news for him is he's driving in the Androz, so he'll at least have something to do...
