Too late for me to compile an open seat list right now, lol.

David and I just bet for a shot, we estimated the gap between webbo and vettel to be around .8. I believe webbo will get his shit together this off-season and tighten the gap, mr. liner believes that Vettel packs eight tenths in his trousers, making emo feel inadequate about his six.

There, it's documented. No welching.

hahah. Maybe not .8...but the dude is def .5 quicker then Webber. I know the RB is fast, but there's no way Vettel could've demolished Webber like that this year unless the car just wasn't as good as it's made out to be :o

Best open seats are at Force India (despite Renault finishing higher on season-end), IMO.

I won't be shocked if STR drops at least one of their current drivers, or if Lotus drops Petrov.

And I hope that Pastor's Venezuela Oil Money falls through to see what Williams really think of him on pure merit. It would be sweet justice if Pastor lost his seat to whoever leaves Force India.

Caterham should drop Trulli (Chandhock?), and I really find it hard to care less about HRT or Marussa.

Petrov is a good mid-guy. Nothing super special, but I like the guy from a personable standpoint...he always seems happy :o

Pastor needs to go. He just seems talent-less behind the wheel of an F1 car...

they confirmed that they gave notice to leave in 2 months if things aren't ironed out (2 separate stories published after this link)...
I kinda agree with them, FOTA made sense when it started, but now I'm not sure its purpose...

If nothing else, a unified front against Bernie and company when it comes time to negotiate on the Concorde agreements.
