This would actually be a good solution. There are a handful of drivers that I don't think would be missed if they were replaced. Like, grosjean, Perez, hulkenberg, Ericsson, Raikkonen, maybe even wehrlein and Magnussen.

Not that some of these aren't interesting or still young, but that they're either past their prime (Raikkonen), had enough time to show they aren't likely to contend for titles (grosjean, hulk), or are flawed enough to make it interesting to see other young talents (ericsson, Magnussen, wehrlein). They all feel like permanent mid field drivers, whether it be by circumstance or talent and we might as well see some new talent.

We really need like 4 more cars to get the IndyCar guy coming over in one, and some more new young drivers having openings. But, maybe I'm wrong about some of those names and not giving them enough credit. Idk...

I always find that statement 'have been around long enough to show they aren't title material' an interesting one.

Jenson Button was very much in this field - then shown with the right set of circumstances he was in fact, title material.

It looks like Kubica is the number one choice at the moment, and probably needs to prove a race pace in the tyre test and will be offered the drive....

A good choice by STR. Hartley is a great story of persistence and Gasly is genuinely quick. Over to you Honda!

Robert Kubica seems like a typical traditional Williams driver - no-nonsense, no celebrity airs or graces and with gritty determination.

Glad they are keeping both Gasly and Hartley, hopefully the Honda engine is less of an embarrassment next season, then we'll see what talented drivers they both are

I hope the context in which he said that doesn't make him look as bad as that looks when viewed in isolation. It is not necessarily a joke if he is still quick enough, and Juan-Pablo could easy end up with egg on his face.

What is Mr Villeneuve’s view? Take whatever he says, and know the opposite is absolutely true

F1.com writes this on Villeneuve's views...

Jacques Villeneuve has blasted Robert Kubica's comeback attempt, believing the Pole doesn't deserve an F1 seat after six years out of the sport.

Kubica's sensational return to the pinnacle of motorsport, after a rally crash halted his career in 2011, is in a final 'make or break' stage.

The 32-year-old tested for Renault at the Hungaroring just before F1's summer break and undoubtedly demonstrated his ability to perform behind the wheel of a 2017-spec F1 car.

The French team still appears to have reservation however about Bobby K's prospects, contrary to Mr. Villeneuve who is crystal clear about what he thinks F1 should do with Robert Kubica.

"I honestly don't understand," the Canadian said in an interview with F1nal-lap.be.

"Who ever got a comeback offer after six years?

"At the end of his career, he was struggling against Petrov. He won his race [in Canada in 2010] like Maldonado, and what did he achieve after that?

"Add the fact that he hasn't recovered 100 percent of his ability, and one wonders how he could cope? Or perhaps the cars are just too easy to drive.

I think in this instance Jaques and Monty are on the right track.

Other than the fairy story, is Kubica bringing serious money to the deal?

Is it just a pay drive deal?
