Of the drivers which probably wont be on the grid next year, which one will you miss the most? Mine is Kamui Kobayashi...

KK. And being a Belgian myself, JDA also a bit, but since he wasn't really on the grid this year, I had already concluded we wont be seeing him again.

For Schumacher it's just time to go, the others I don't really care much about and I'd rather see them replaced by talent that got no seat this year, or by young and upcoming talent.

Koba will be missed a lot indeed looking at the results so far, voted for him too. Grosjean will be there I guess.

Heikki Kovalainen with Kobayashi a close second.

Schumacher had to retire anyway but these two are really talented but still losing out in the prime of their careers.

I will miss:
Kobayashi
Schumi
Senna
And Gros if he goes.

Because frankly F1 is more then just racing, its also about the crashes and there is nothing more fun then seeing a bunch of drivers who cant do Wheel to Wheel action. Makes the other ones who can AKA Button/Alonso/Lewis (remember that 3 way action) look good.

I will miss the action!

Kobayashi by far.

It's criminal that him and Perez were 6 points apart and yet one will likely get the chance to challenge for the WDC next year and the other is likely to be out of the sport.

Can there be an "all but Narain" option?

But for the sake of someone i've enjoyed watching ever since he came into the sport, its Kobayashi.

I was under the impression that Senna will most likely find himself a seat.
And Grosjean will definitely be staying.

I would of voted Kamui but now with the news of a possible link to Lotus im just praying he gets the seat, so with that i voted for Bruno Senna as i don't think he will get a seat.

Kobayashi, Kovalainen and Senna. It would be nice if they could all get seats, but I'm not at all hopeful.

Schumi first and foremost, and that's for personal reasons.

Beyond that the only one is Grosjean. I think he's talented and I'd like to see him given one more year to see if he can sort out his errors. I know the repair bill is big, but he's also qualified ahead of his well-regarded teammate and when he doesn't make those mistakes he races very well. IMO he has a lot of potential and he's not had a full opportunity to develop enough to make a judgement.

I have a bit of a soft spot for Senna because I think his path to F1 has been exceptionally difficult, but I won't miss him.

The rest I don't feel are talented enough or they've had their time to show what they're capable of and are much of a muchness of F1 drivers and fully replaceable with young drivers.

Teams do know which driver is fast and have potential and which driver isn't. That's why Kubica was on wishlist of many teams for 2010, while Heidfeld out of the sport (bar 2 lucky breaks in 2010 and 2011), despite Heidfeld outscoring Kubica during their BMW years.


If Grosjean won't make it, then him. Other drivers on that list are journeymen or mediocre, so nothing to miss.
I know what I'm talking about.
