If McLaren are getting rid of Jenson then Grosjean could be the answer to their problems. He is a proven racer and has matured tremendously during his time at Lotus. He is also available, which is more than could be said for Hulkenberg who I believe is most deserving of a top drive.

I feel sorry for Grosjean (and Maldonado) this year, the car has been simply dreadful. I'm a fan of Romain, I think he has shown great talent in his first few seasons of F1, and he is certainly capable of winning a grand prix. I hope things get better in the future for him. He can do the French fans proud!

I had high hopes for Romain. He showed signs of brilliance, but things are not going his way - and patience is short in F1.

He might be happier and better off following Mark Webber to Le Mans Prototypes/Sports Cars. Less pressure with all the excitment and real racing.

Besides, F1 is going away from being the pinnacle of motor racing with having to save energy, save tires, harvesting energy, having to coast. It's no longer the all-out full effort racing it once was.

Great post. But it looks likes F1 has already left us.
