Kinda obvious what the team is thinking: money. I think for guys like Di Grassi, D'Ambrosio and most other paydrivers finding a million or 5-10 for one year is one thing, finding that money for multiple seasons is quite another. Most of them have always vanished from the scene within a year or two. Only guys with real serious cash behind them can keep up the paydriver role for a number of years (bless you Pedro Paolo Diniz).

Pic doesn't bring any sponsorship to the team. I like to seen new names coming up even for some of them just for a year.
At least they had a chance.
We need young blood to replace those dinosaurus Barrichello, Trulli...
