F1 » Maldonado keen for Grosjean to stay

He needs to worry about his future not Grosjean's, money he may have but for how long, his backers won't keep pumping money in unless he improves and gets a good car, at the moment he is an accident waiting to happen and does'nt appear able to improve his racecraft, a win he has but the chances of a second are less than nil within two years he will be gone, there's a long line of drivers after a drive many of then with money, oh and talent!

F1 » Rossi reveals Haas talks

I'm sure Jacques Villaneuve will have approached them as well, he's only 93 and still believes he can cut it at the top level, seriously though there will be dozens of people coming out of the woodwork thinking that this is their big chance, I can only say dream on, the team is'nt even on the grid yet and come 2016 may not even be in a position to start racing, basing your team in the States for whatever reason is about as daft as it gets, England is the centre of F1 and I'm sure Haas knows that so why is he making a rod for his own back?

F1 » Sauber doesn’t need a new car – Kaltenborn

Whatever they do it will be irrelevant as they will still be a lower mid grid team. As for drivers you can perm any number of pay drivers and second stringers and the results will be the same, it's a catch 22 situation, you have no money a crap car and you won't get a top driver, a shame because Sauber has a good reputation and has produced some good cars but until they can obtain a bigger budget the situation will remain the same.

F1 » Button: No reason to want to change

I don't believe it will be his choice, RD is clearly looking to get a top driver in a Mclaren ASAP maybe for next season. If Button does stay on I'm sure RD will insist that his pay is reduced to a much lower level, possibly pay by race and results. I'm sure that come 2016 Button will be gone and one of Alonso/Hamilton/Vettel will be safely esconced at Mclaren on a mega contract.

F1 » 2014 car ‘a laboratory’ for next year – Boullier

I thought they were supposed to be trying to win races, did they tell Button that this season was going to be used just for research? no of course not Boullier is just doing what he does best "Bullshitting" in an effort to cover up yet another below average season. It is highly likely that next season will be even worse for Mclaren as with a new engine and yet another crap chassis there will be no hiding place. Button would be better off out of it and F1. He has plenty of money and does pretty well in Triathlons, has a lovely lady and can't really need the hassle of driving uncompetitive cars year in year out.

F1 » Chilton may not have to pay for drive in 2015?

To be fair to Max he's probably no worse than many other pay drivers, he's not that much slower than Bianchi and Bianchi is being touted as a future Ferrari driver, however if Marussia have the money there are better drivers available and they may need two if Bianchi gets a better drive. Realistically Max's f1 career will not extend to getting a better drive because he is simply not good enough, he's one of a bunch of average pay drivers who's career's will only last as long as their money.

F1 » Hamilton calls for reliability improvements

I'm sure Mercedes are quite capable of making improvements and have already acknowledged that they need to improve reliability, Better I think for Hamilton to keep quiet, he has'nt won the championship yet nor has he outgunned Rosburg to the degree he makes out. The likelyhood is that it will go down to the wire, for what it's worth my money is on Rosburg!

F1 » EXCLUSIVE: Kamui Kobayashi Q&A Part 2

Realistically he has nowhere to go, most seats next season are booked and if they are not they will go to the drivers with the biggest bag of gold, sad fact of life that your actual talent is negated by having no backers behind you. Pay drivers come and go only as long as the money lasts and that won't change especially with new teams coming in with inadequate backing. I f I were a young and talented driver I would'nt bother with F1 unless I got a top drive, it does more harm than good to do several seasons scratching around in a crap team, just think how many talented drivers have disappeared over the years.
