I hope Kamui is kept by Sauber. Might not have had the greatest of seasons, especially comparing him to Perez but he is only 16 points behind his team mate. Compare that to any of the top teams and that isn't too bad.

I would had preferred to read "Davide Valsechi and Luiz Razia will run for Sauber during the Young Driver test in Abu Dhabi next month" but when Sauber is willing to fire Kobayashi if he doesn't bring in some big sponsor this the line-up for Abu Dhabi doesn't surprise me. I've a feeling the days the best made to F1 are sadly over now we will have a handful of very talented drivers and two hands and two feet of paying drivers who are just average.

When Toto Wolff's wife at age 30 or something is eating up all Williams F1 young driver test programs I guess Valsechi is can be described as "very young driver" plus Razia should be given a chance!

Like I've said elsewhere, I think Esteban should be a Friday test driver next year before getting a proper chance at Sauber. It would give him experience at all the tracks that he isn't familiar with and the get used to the car, but without costing Sauber points as he learns. Then 2014 he would be ready if they wished to promote him. Doesn't make sense to get rid of Kobayashi when he's just broke his podium hoodoo.

A pair of young hot foots will show how proficient they
are at flipping switches, turning knobs, and doing the Finger
two step dance with the paddles. Methinks Sauber will go with
a all rookie lineup. Kobi will go. That decision will be made
by Sauber's bottom line. Nothing new, this team and others,
will never be competitive, just part of the show.. Real talent
is not really a requirement. Each season F1 gets closer to that
old Axum of lost creditability, the game is rigged. a fraudulent
collection of rich boys toys..

Badman, jose
