How long do we think Esteban will remain in F1? If he had been driving on merit and not sponsorship I would be surprised if he finished the current season. They didn't have the patience with DLR to give him a full season, which in some ways was unfair because the car was so damn unreliable for the first half of 2010.

Unless the new tyres start to bring Sauber back into contention, I just don't see Esteban scoring a point although he has improved slightly since his practice during the Indian GP last year.

Guttierez simply seems to be to slow. He's the only driver in F1 this year that has been outqualified by his teammate at every single race so far...I'd be really surprised if he suddenly picks up a lot of speed as he has driven in GP2 for some years already and GP3 before that so yes he might still get a little quicker in F1 with experience but not by much.

I think by now reading the team comments after the races it's pretty obvious that if it were up to the teammembers who have sporting achievement in mind, he might be on his way out at this point of the year, but for that to happen they will have to convince Carlos that they need points and running Esteban doesn't benefit anyone if he's simply not quick enough.
