DNQ should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
Game: Five in, Five Out

The game is very simple: out of the twenty drivers in Formula One at the moment, which five would you like to see go, and which five drivers (not in Formula One at the moment), would you like to see replace them, without giving any thought about teams and contracts etc. I'll go first. Only rule is the 'in' drivers you chose must be active in some form of top level motorsport

Out
Michael Schumacher - sorry champ, let someone else win
Ralf Schumacher - not lacking greatly, just a little bland
Ralph Firman - he's doing reasonably well in a tough car...
Antonio Pizzonia - has pace, but can't seem to use it
Jarno Trulli - star of the future I used to think, hasn't shone though

In
Valentino Rossi - Surtees, Hailwood have done it, Rossi should be next
Mario Dominguez - give my fave CART star a Ferrari drive
James Courtney - time for a second Aussie in Formula One
Will Davison - make that three Aussies
Scott Dixon - save Scott from Crapwagon hell (hey, he was born in Australia too)

Remember, it's only a bit of fun folks

Out

HHF- its just time to go
Nick H - has been at it for some years &just misse's the cut

In
Alex Wurz- Has outpaced team mate in testing
Ryan Briscoe - Has done enough to warrant a drive
James Courtney - Fast
Will Davison - Smart & fast
Scott Dixon - If we have to have a CART/IRL driver Scott should be it

Isn't Scott from New Zealand?
Out:
Verstappen: nice guy but what can he show anymore on a Minardi?
Coulthard: frankly speaking he already had his chances and he lost them, he's outta here
Villeneuve: he can become a commentator, so he can do the same he's doing right now: talk, talk, talk and nothing more
Panis: time to retire and enjoy his money
Frentzen : staying at Sauber doesn't make any sense

IN:
Tomas Scheckter: F1 is bound to enjoy his madness
Massa: deserves one more chance, the experience at ferrari is certainly make him more mature.Next year will be ready
Nelsinho: doesn't need to pass through F3000, if he keeps consistent in British F3 this year
Montagny: he's dominating World series, why not giving him a chance?
Antinucci: a yankee can help F1 to find interest in the States

What about Luca Badoer? I can't really remember if he was very good or not. If he drove for Ferrari he'd be good...

That is all I would want to cut at present.

3) Rossi (out of interest, to see if the transition could work nowadays)

I'll just copy DNQ's "out" list, though Coultard and Verstappen are both tempting.

IN:
1. A.J. Allmendinger (a real talent, to redeem America's honor after Sullivan, Cheever and Michael Andretti)
2. Sebastian Bourdais (the guy's superfast)
3. Thomas Enge (F3000 Champion, damn good in GT cars)
4. Anthony Davidson (He deserves another shot)
5. Eh, these guys all miss the cut for some reason: John Young (34 and has only driven GTs), Gunnar Jeanette (not nearly enough experience, lacking dedication it seems), Paul Edwards (extremely talented, but kind of dissapointing this year), Tomas Scheckter (spoiled brat), Paul Tracy (just too old)

IN:

The "he always throws it at the wall" line is a little redundent now, seeing as the last time he did it was Monaco 2001 .

(Brazil doesn't count because well, even Schu ditched it there)

Damon,

I reread my post, and I fail to see where I stated that, "he always throws it into the wall."

I merely stated that he has no brains. Talent, yes, brains no.

OUT:

Pablo Montoya - Nothing but an overrated big mouth...shouldnt be driving anything but a Champ car.

Pizzonia - Doesent deserve an F1 seat after his lousy performances in F3000.

Trulli - Outclassed once again...Its time Janno takes a trip down to Indy..He may have better luck.

Coulthard - Too many years in a competitive car and no championship to show for it.

Firman - A loser. Only in F1 because he has the bucks. There's a reason why he never made it to F1 till 2003...he just aint good enough.

IN:

Tomas Schketer - Very talented and extremely quick..He's a charger and deserves to be in F1...Hopefully in a far better team than Jaguar.

Bruno Junqueira - Should have been in F1 in 2000 but lost out ..quite unfairly.. to Button. Bruno needs to make the switch within the next year or two otherwise his talent may go to waste.

Felipe Massa - Massa is right where he should be..ie testing for Ferrari .. the team will groom him properly and hopefully he`ll get a race seat very soon.

Marc Gene - Few people talk about Marc but he's a good driver and he`s done very well at Williams..matching the pace of their two drivers.

Helio Castroneves - Doing very well..much better than I thought he would..Would be interesting to see how he goes in F1.
