Season 2018 seven vacancies

In the course of Grand Prix of Singapore became aware of the extension of the contracts of Valtteri Bottas, the pilots Force India, and also about the transfer of Carlos Sainz in the Renault. The teams are still seven vacancies, one of which may take Daniil Kvyat.Williams - 2 wakasiyaka no contracts with the pilots, but there is no doubt that lance Stroll will stay in the team, given the investment made by Strolla senior.In a couple of Canadians who will soon turn 19 years old, Williams is seeking an experienced pilot, over the age of 25 - this requirement is title sponsor Martini. Until recently, Felipe Massa remained the only candidate for this place, but first started talking about Paul di Resta, which now appears to be backup pilot of the team, and then about Robert Kubica. Kubica first tested in the part of Renault, but there chose Carlos Sainz, and now Robert is actively training in the simulator Williams.Another candidate - Marcus Ericsson, who may lose the place in the Sauber. The only advantage of the Swede is a solid set of sponsors.Toro Rosso - 2 vakansiyalar Sainz goes to Renault, and with high probability it will be replaced by Frenchman Pierre went Out - other suitable pilots in the Red Bull yet.Obviously, stay Sainz in the Toro Rosso, then went Out would take place Daniil Kvyat. Now, the Russian pilot has a chance to keep his job, it's important to make mistakes in the remaining races.Meanwhile, a new partner Honda want to see in the ranks of Toro Rosso its pilot Nobuharu Matsushita, which now appears in the Formula-2. It is not clear in what capacity - possibly as a test pilot. If the Japanese insist on the place of combat pilot, it is easy to guess that it will go with Cuatom.Few people know that now Matsushita listed as a pilot for the development of the McLaren-Honda. However, before the combat cars are not all limited to work in the simulator.McLaren - 1 vakantiecentrum with Stoffel Vendorno confirmed a month ago that negotiations with Fernando Alonso go. Earlier two-time champion reiterated that he would remain at McLaren, if the team change engine supplier. It happened, and now, as far as we know, Alonso and the McLaren management to discuss details of the new contract. Most likely, the agreement will be signed for one season to sign a contract for a longer period, the Spaniard just will not risk it.If Alonso refuses though it goes nowhere, then McLaren, in the words of Zac brown, have a plan "B". Obviously, this refers to Jenson button. Lando Norris, who will soon turn 18, they're unlikely to be put into a fighting machine.Sauber - 2 vacanciel contract extension with Ferrari Sauber head of Frederic Vasseur said he was willing to give one or even two seats for the wards of the Scuderia. Obviously, in return, the porters expect to receive discounts on the powerplant, gearbox and other components that will deliver Maranello.Ferrari has Antonio Giovinazzi and Charles Leclere, who in the course of this season, was repeatedly brought to the tests. And Giovinazzi even held two races, replacing the injured Pascal Wehrlein. If Ferrari is willing to pay for seats of both pilots, no place will be Marcus Ericsson. If the Scuderia will pull only one place, it is likely that Eriksson and his sponsors will remain in the Sauber.Without mestis the above it follows that in the season of 2018, we will not see on the grid protege Mercedes of Pascal Wehrlein. In the customer team Force India all the seats were occupied, and in Williams he victims. Perhaps he will remain in Formula 1 as a backup pilot factory team Mercedes.
