F1 » Bottas keen to stay at Williams

IMHO, Williams are on the up. They cause Merc problems, and seem to constantly be dicing with RBR. McL, Ferrari, Lotus are really no where to be found. FIF1 have totally been on the down slide and flailing about. Sure next year could change a lot, but without drastic rule changes and Williams having a good base car no reason to move. Massa I think is a 50/50. He really needs to have a great 2nd 1/2 of the season. Yes he's had several runs of accidents not his fault, but when on track, he's outpaced. Unless they're keeping him for his development skills, he might be shown the door. Personally I'd love to see RG come in, or give Nasr a crack at the whip.

F1 » Verstappen gets 2015 Toro Rosso drive

If he's good enough, then he's old enough. RedBull obviously are taking a gamble on him, but every team does that with every unknown driver. No one knew SV was going to be 4x WDC coming in to RBR. No one expected DR to be as good as he is this year. Bottas came as a surprise as well. Not to say that every rookie will be a great find, but thats the gamble because there are just as many busts as well. As for GP2 should be a requirement, I find that a flawed argument. Only a few have actually gone on in F1 to actually become successful. Most have washed out after a few seasons.

F1 » Hulkenberg, Perez keen to stay at Force India

This is the best option for Hulk ATM. 2015 looks stable in terms of the driver market, But I think 2016 will see a significant shift. Alonso will be coming up on contract terms. Kimi's seat is vacant. SV could move. JB's seat might be open. Massa's seat will probably be open as well. Also LH's seat might be open if he doesn't resign this year. Silly season will be awash with rumors in 2015.

F1 » F1 2014 driver salaries published – but who earns most?

While i think NR should get a pay bump, not sure if he should match Lulu's level. Lulu does have a WDC in his pocket and that is worth a lot of $$ when a team is trying to sign you. In terms of ROI, Bottas, DR, DK, KM and Bianchi probably have returns over 100% to the teams. Bianchi esp, those 2 points and 9th in constructors is worth so much more than the 500k he makes.

F1 » Bianchi not expecting Ferrari call-up

Bianchi to Ferrari for 2016. 2015 he will stay at Marussia. I feel he does need to be in a team fighting for regular points thought to help hone his skills. It's quite the jump to go from Marussia to Ferrari, but then again DR has done well along with KM for the most part. He will stay with any Ferrari powered team due to they are writing his checks. The only reason he would move to Sauber is say Ferrari cut them a deal of free engines if they let Bianchi fill a seat. Even then that has to be more than what either Sutil or Guti is bring in as well. Sauber are far from fighting the mid-field battle.

F1 » Raikkonen sees Ferrari positives for 2015

IMHO, Kimi has taken on the task of being the development mule. I still wonder if he's having issues with the feel of the brakes in the car. He's been quite vocal about how he does not like the brake by wire system. I remember at Lotus, Kimi has very interesting yet specific requirements out of the front end of the car. He likes the steering to be light yet, give him lots of feel. The Lotus guys were really scratching their heads trying to give him that. I wonder if Ferrari figured that out for him?

F1 » Rossi reveals Haas talks

Rossi does not have really anything impressive on his racing CV just yet. As someone from Texas, yes it would be nice to have a US driver to cheer for, but I think Hass did not amass his great fortune on sentiment. He I would imagine he's going to try to nab the 2 best drivers he can regardless of nationality. If he does take on a US driver, he'll probably require the US version of PM and they better bring in lots of $$$.
