Who should replace Timo Glock at Marussia?

Timo Glock's departure from Marussia will open up an opportunity for someone who perhaps thought all doors had closed - but who deserves the chance?
With the news that Timo Glock could be heading for the DTM in 2013 rather than spending another year pounding around at the back of the F1 field with Marussia, an unexpected opportunity has opened up for the myriad drivers still chasing a seat at the top table.

But who should fill the vacancy created by the German veteran's departure?

Vitaly Petrov and Sebastien Buemi are the popular picks, but the likes of erstwhile Marussia candidate Luiz Razia, well-funded Bruno Senna, GP2 champion Davide Valsecchi, former Toro Rosso driver Jaime Alguersuari and even Kamui Kobayashi - who had given up on his chance of racing this year despite the fund-raising efforts of his fans - could all be in the frame.

Who cares, another quality driver loses his place in f1 because marussia probably asked him to pay for his seat and rightfully he refused this offer. This team might last 1 or 2 years longer at the most, maybe if bernie hadn't allowed f1 to go to pay tv f1 wouldnt be in the financial mess its in right now.
