Pretty sure Rubens will be dropped, he strange not to see him in F1, maybe HRT should grab him inside of Liuzzi.

@victor
Reckon the hulk will be at FI for De-Rista.

Sutil to Lotus...only to be dropped by Boullier half way through 2012 as a test driver comes along with a big sponsorship cheque

OK Kimi apparently has backing from Qatar and Williams need to fill their coffers, but Kimi likes a drink or three and he never liked to do the corporate hospitality thing, so not very user friendly. But honestly why would Kimi want to risk his championship winning reputation at Williams who are seriously struggling.
Williams need a star designer more than they need a star driver, and they have recently missed the chance to grab Gordon Murray who is now consulting for Group Lotus.
Kimi will do Patrick's Head in, if you'll forgive the pun....

Uhh... I thought Bianchi might have been a possible replacement for Massa in 2013? Whoever replaces Massa will be a young driver, a new driver. Him or Perez I thought.

I guess he could sign up with Williams for a year. It doesn't seem like they keep their drivers for too long anyway.

2007 Kimi a lucky champion because Lewis and Fernando were losing points to each other in their season long squabble. Kimi finished one point above Lewis and Fernando, with Lewis judged second by virtue of higher results than Fernando. If Lewis had kept his head he might have won easily, and if Fernando had used his head, he too might have won easily. I think Kimi new it was a lucky win so he tended to lose interest afterwards and didn't push hard enough giving Felipe his chance of a championship, which was famously taken from him on the last lap, by a very lucky Lewis. :)
