Sutil was very unlucky to lose his seat last year... pr decision as much as anything i think.. he's at least as good as pdr/nico.. he's got plenty of backing behind him too.. so from force india's p.o.v. its surely a no brainer..
i will be sad to see kamui lose his seat.. but then again, quick nick should/ could have been in a renault or sauber this year and wasn't.. and i'm a lot sadder about that.

oh and bruno has been made to look very average by a pretty average team mate this year... how many more points williams would have had with rubens...we'll never know..but even for an old guy he'd have still soundly beaten the de-railer for venezuela

Guttierez @ Sauber is a done deal. Carlos Slim Domit has stated that he won't sponsor the team if there isn't a Mexican driving for them so unlike some would like you believe the sponsoring isn't independent of Guttierez' presence. He went on to say he's sure there'll be two Mexicans driving in F1 next year so there you have it.

Peter Sauber sold his independence away two years ago and at first he was all giddy but now he's going to be stuck with a mediocre driver. Only question is for how long will Carlos tolerate bad results of his protege? Maybe the seat will be up for grabs again come Canada next year...

I don't understand why people think sponsors naming the drivers is a new thing back when Malboro were a major force they basically wrote the drivers contracts, and that was back in the Prost, Senna days.

Gutierrez will get the drive because he has a sponsors backing and thats nothing new in formula 1. The teams need the money.

Bruno Senna, as damon hill said "hope he gets a long term career at F1" so i hope bruno can get this seat.

Pity he lost 23hrs of practice in 2012 this made a big difference in his qualy performance.
