    Sroll is a certainty and with Gio being a Ferrari academy driver I'd imagine he comes with funding from Ferrari, be that straight cash or cheaper engines if they run him.

    I wish Stroll could fuck off, but things are what they are.

    Giovinazzi, on the other hand, I have no opinion of, except that he has a cool name. Antonio Giovinazzi. It's cool to say and it's cool to type.

    Grosjean has confirmed he stays at Haas next year.
    Kubica has confirmed he leaves Williams at the end of the year.
    acket.

    He's fast, he's knowledgeable, he comes with sponsorship.

    He is on par with Perez on a lot of respects.
    acket.

    SHOCKING AS FUCK.
    Rumours have it Gene Haas is behind the confirmation of Grosjean's contract while Steiner had to officially backpedal on what he said on Hulkenberg.
    Smells to me like team owner incompentence, inexperience (related to F1, mind!) and personal interference.
    Also tight budget: Hulkenberg's salary is around 4.5 mil while Grosjean's one is about 1.8 mil.
    Criticism of Haas way of managing the team (along with Steiner) is rising.
    Also some say that Haas is too conservative for F1, particularly in regard of favouring experience before sheer talent too much for F1 ambient.

    Now Giovinazzi is in risk of losing his seat in favour of Hulkenberg.

    Last I heard, Ferrari still want to grow him into a Twobens/Massa for LeClerc.

    I can see Hulk pairing with the German-engined Williams. Williams would have to give him a lot of freedom on image rights to payback for a lighter salary.
    acket.

    Hulk's salary is too high for Williams, while Latifi, which is supposed to be second driver to Russell next season, comes loaded with money (a lot of which already goes to McLaren - unrelated to the son's "sponsor baggage", Nicolas's father has invested 270 million dollars in McLaren Group through Nidala, a British Virgin Islands company he owns).

    But aren't they getting Pup-grooming money from Mercedes for Russell?

    What do they need besides buidling their chassis and ancillaries to keep receiving heritage money?

    Yeah, if a team needs 2 paid drivers to stay afloat, back of the grid they will remain...

    I have mix feelings for grojean. Sure, for the same salary, nico would be an easy decision. However, surely Haas doesn’t have a Rich budget anymore...

    Wonder why Ferrari doesn’t want to groom its driver in a Haas with Ferrari engine. If Ferrari could finance the team a bit, it’d be much easier to let grojean go...
