"political mischief"

Gimmie a break, anyone who can use a search engine will know there's more too it than political mischief but it'll all be swept under the carpet when the correct money changes hands.

The Hulk if off to Sauber so I wonder who gets the 2nd seat, I'm guessing it's someone with decent sponsors as Paul doesn't have backing.

Hulkenberg will go to Sauber and he will bring sponsor for Sauber.
For his seat at Force India is now competition between 3 drivers they are two former Toro Rosso drivers and former Force India driver Sutil. However, the seat will go to someone who brings best sponsorship deal for Force India.
Also Kobayashi can get seat at Force India if he has sponsor and must be better than other competitors. What a shame?
At Sauber, one seat will go to other Mexican driver for to keep Mexican Sponsor happy. Hulkenberg will bring Sponsor with him. Kobayashi doesn't have Sponsor at all.
So he will be definitely out of F1 next year unless miracle happened for Sponsorship. I don't think he can save his seat even if he won the race because Sauber really need money.
Nothing to do with his performance but it's about Sponsor money.
It's very sad for Mortor Sport fans because the talented driver has to leave his driver seat to other driver who can pay money for driver seat.

A no bail warrant, usually means Jail time. But if he has the cash something less embarrassing can be worked out. Money talks in India, hell money talks loud ever where on the planet I bet his "Hideout" is really hooked-up. Maybe he is cruising the Med or Caribbean in his Submarine. Sooner or Later someone will drop a dime and you are busted big time..Please don't forget to sing that usual tune, " I've been framed"...
I'm innocent Boss!!
Adios,

I think Hulk has a better shot at a Ferrari seat than DR, especially if there's any truth to the notion that he'll be at Sauber next year. With Perez out of the way and Bianchi never really making good on his promise the red team needs a new backup plan for when Vettel doesn't go to them and or FA's relationship with Ferrari were to come to a premature end somehow if Vettel does come to Ferrari.

A decent driver at their good old B-team from Switzerland comes in handy if any of those things were to happen.
