Lol, the Webber deal was known for weeks! This locks out the grid down to STR IMO.
I would never call a deal on Sauber until the money has changed hands. There may be interest at ART but there could also be a lot of deal breakers. Depending on ownership the driver situation at Sauber/Hinwil is completely up in the air.
I agree that Epsilon should make the 2011 selection.
Heidfeld could turn up at Force India but they would probably not want to employ two Germans and Sutil is not likely to change with the top teams set in stone. Heidfeld could also replace Hülkenberg at Williams unless Nico pulls up his socks pretty fast.
Red Bull will stay with Renault because Ferrari will not want to see their engine in a competing top team and frankly spoken are not better than Renault. A Merc engine isn't available. Williams will stay with Cosworth which really is their best long term option of integrating their KERS system with an engine.
Red Bull-Renault: Webber/Vettel (Confirmed)
McLaren-Mercedes: Button/Hamilton (Confirmed)
Ferarri: Alonso/Massa (as good as confirmed)
Mercedes: Schumacher/Rosberg (confirmed)
Renault: Kubica/Petrov (as good as confirmed)
Williams-Cosworth: Barrichello/Hulkenberg or Heidfeld
Force India-Mercedes: Sutil/Di Resta or Heidfeld
Toro Rosso-Ferrari: Alguersuari/Buemi
Virgin-Cosworth: Glock/Di Grassi
to be confirmed
