It looks like the wait is because Alonso is deciding how long he’ll spend at Mclaren. He probably just wants a one year deal incase a Mercedes becomes available, but due to Vettel already moving, the negotiation is difficult as Ron doesn’t want to see Alonso jump his ship after one year again. If Alonso does get stuck in a multi year deal, I doubt Mercedes will buy him out, as that’s a lot of money for the difference between Lewis and an old Fernando.27th October 2014, 4:14 at 4:14 am #280411
Its been a long time but is there any news about Which Mclaren driver is going to be in 2015
and What about Romain Grosjean Is there any news27th October 2014, 5:16 at 5:16 am #280412ToddParticipant
@harsha – Seems Grosjean is due to remain with Lotus, and it seems Button is due to be replaced with Alonso. Neither of those have been confirmed yet, but that’s the generally accepted idea of whats going to happen.27th October 2014, 6:41 at 6:41 am #280413
I read a rumour that Checo is trying to get a seat at Lotus which might replace Grosjean dont know how much of this is true
Any idea when the Official Information can be out of Both Mclaren – Honda and Scuderia Ferrari?27th October 2014, 7:01 at 7:01 am #280414ToddParticipant
Seems like Grosjean is almost guaranteed to be at Lotus, and Maldonado was confirmed back in July. I read the articles about Checo and Lotus. It seems like Checo has offered Lotus his services, and his backers’ sponsorships as a backup plan to FI, but I don’t think Lotus ever approached him about it.27th October 2014, 14:24 at 2:24 pm #280469NickParticipant
Considerding Boullier’s words of teams needing a 6 months notice and seeing how Arrows and Super Aguri went out, I’d say the following is possible.

Just so you know, Mclaren’s website is now available in Spanish.30th October 2014, 1:28 at 1:28 am #280951Iestyn DaviesParticipant
@theo-hrp That’s kind of them, Button’s only been in Santander ads for god knows how many years!
Alonso: “I’ll do the driving, you do the ads..”30th October 2014, 10:57 at 10:57 am #281383hunocsiParticipant
They had a Mexican driver last year… And Spanish language since about then as well.30th October 2014, 17:30 at 5:30 pm #281416NickParticipant
Williams’ site is not available in Finnish or Portuguese. I think this means Button and Hamilton are joining them for 2015.
The Scuderia Ferrari website is available in Spanish, but not in Finnish or German. This means either a Spanish, English, Italian or Chinese driver will replace Raikkonen at Ferrari.30th October 2014, 17:59 at 5:59 pm #281424Iestyn DaviesParticipant
“Ferrari have decided to gazump Red Bull, and place their Chinese academy driver in the second Ferrari for 2015, being the youngest ever F1 driver. He’ll have to have home schooling when not F1 racing, but cramming is common in China. This means another pay-off of Kimi Raikkonen, and Hulkenberg is overlooked once more (he got another text message). Their justification for this was that their car doesn’t look promising, engine either, and that, even if he ‘did a Badoer’ every race, Ferrari still get the most money of everyone on the grid. Thus, they decided to try and sell some merchandise in China…”31st October 2014, 8:43 at 8:43 am #281686AlbertCParticipant31st October 2014, 8:44 at 8:44 am #281687AlbertCParticipant1st November 2014, 3:29 at 3:29 am #281814
