Plus as a mod I want to see discussion not just lists....

So I am actually going to say no more lists to be published for the time being please or I will just delete the post.

Let's have a natter about all the relative driver merits and who they might know linking them to a given seat and things like that?

Like the F3 one now up to about six drivers, all completely wrong. Enthusiastic I understand, but pointless all the same.

most of the names were right, not in the first lists perhaps, but in the last lists.

Malja - I had it before
Fuoco and Leclerc - I had it before

and so on.

It's based on talks with drivers, with reports on other websites and some other are suggestions.

But okay, if there is no interest in it, I will stopp posting here.

I want more than just post links to news as other does. I will give an imagine who the rest of the field could look like.

If it's not in interest here, I will leave. No problem.

the thing is, this is a *discussion* forum. what are we meant to discuss about a list that generally proves to be inaccurate?

like i've said on one of these threads, it's far more useful for yourself and everyone to have a context. take one team - who's tested for them recently? who's been talking to who? etc etc. that's called discussing stuff.

which is sadly a bit of a lost art on today's internet. as you can see by what happens when their opinion is challenged...

Ok, to try and provoke some discussion......

I have got a feeling that Carlin might not stick around for next season (I say this with no basis other than a hunch).

Their post season testing seemed to remind me of Status last year IIRC (and Ocean Racing Technology I think it was a few seasons before that) - Seralles didn't do a great number of laps, and the second car looked to go to the highest bidder (Raghunathan). Outwardly it didn't look like they took it too seriously. I wait to be proved wrong though.

Also strange to see del Plano and Hoher testing, as neither would really be considered realistic prospects for seats. Again, teams cashing in to the highest bidder?

there was a lot of the highest bidder stuff going on race by race in both gp2 and gp3 wasn't there?

I didn't think GP2 was so bad for it this year, 2014 and 2015 I recall were worse with Lazarus and Hilmer the main culprits.

Of course, I accept that seats in the series will always go to whoever can afford them. I just think it's a huge gulf between a well-heeled career racer - say Jordan King as an example - and the likes of Salvatore del Plano

Maybe, they've expanded their focus to the entire Mazda Road to Indy, and their remaining teams are in UK-based series (F4 and BRDC F3).

What was the deal with them bringing Deletraz in for Abu Dhabi then - was it Carlin simply offering him some experience in the series, or are they genuinely looking at him as a serious option for a drive in 2017? I know he tested for Racing Engineering, and, to be honest, it wouldn't be a surprise if that's where he ended up, but it'd be strange for them to pass up the opportunity of running such a talented driver and pull out of the series altogether if they were able to...

Try looking at where Carlin have been running all year the swapping of drivers was just one sign of trouble.
