I think The Hulk would have been a better long term option, unless Ferrari have him on standby for when Kimi has had enough of Ferrari. It doesn't look very promising for The Hulk next year unless something really unexpected comes up soon. It's a pity as he is obviously so talented, F1 is a cruel business.

Hulk gets so little in return from a sport he gives so much. This really pisses me off, teams say they want young talent coming through the ranks but then when the opportunity is there, they don't want to take the risk. Now he'll likely get pushed out of F1 by Sauber, just like they pushed Kobayashi out. Two amazing drivers never getting the chances they deserve... it really makes me angry!

Didn't I read somewhere a long time ago this guy turned down a chance to join the Redbull driver academy? If it was him, I wonder how he feels about it now. It appears if you're a young driver it's the only team you can make it into a top seat without having a pocket bulging with cash. He's a tough racer. He impressed at Williams and I could never understand why they dropped him, the sideways move to Sauber last year was confusing.. now it looks like he will be pushed out all together again. If Lotus had half a brain they would sign him over Massa.
