Seems a bit strange indications suggested that toro Roso were going to be unchanged also I could understand replacing one of the drivers but replacing both will surely give the team a disadvantage at start of season but still good luck to both drivers #justsaying

I was wondering, couldn't see the point of Torro Rosso as a feeder team if new talent weren't give a chance. A good shout by RBR.

Richard, do you still think it was a bad idea for Riccardo to get a run in the HRT?

I'm glad Helmur Marko wants STR to 'maintain its culture' and ambitions to be the eighth team on the grid for the rest of its days.

Alguersuari might not be quite as fast as Vettel, but his maturity is staggering. Just look at the way he hounded Rosberg in Korea for that seventh place, or set the pace of the middle pack in Korea, or pressured Petrov in Brazil for that final point.

If he doesn't secure a drive for next year then it's a tragedy for the sport, when even Pastor ****ing Maldonado can get a seat.

HRT seem determined to be an all Spanish team, so I'm sure Alguesuari's in with a shout there.

As for Buemi.. I just don't think he's F1 quality, he's had enough of an opportunity to show otherwise, and hasn't put in any drives of real note.
