If Vergne or Ricciardo really show that sort of potential then they should expect to get promoted, but I think Red Bull would be better off going after Hulkenburg or Massa if the two STR drivers do not jump off the paper after 2 seasons.
I think Chilton might be flattering Bianchi a little, but I definitely expect Bianchi to be around a long time. But to promote him to an RBR seat after 1 season at Marussia would be incredibly risky and not a good idea, unless he really shows something other than the ability to outpace Max Chilton and Caterhams.
Bianchi has already been slatted as driver of the future for Ferrari compared to Perez, So I wouldn't put my beans on him for a TR seat...depending on how Massa performs this year he may see himself next to Alonso.mnmracer wrote:True.Websta wrote:

yeah, but I can't see how Ricciardo is better than Buemi apart from looks.DeLaRosa wrote:If Webber gets replaced I think Daniel Ricciardo will fill in his seat. Otherwise, why would Red Bull use a driver programme?
Sutil = Mercedes , Bianci = FerrariWebsta wrote: Remember, Findia chose the more expensive Sutil over Bianchi after seeing both of them in the car in Winter Testing.
I am not really convinced - it didn't stop FI signing him (or Ferrari allowing him to serve) as reserve driver and giving him 9 practise sessions in 2012. I don't see how a race seat would have been really much different.CBeck113 wrote:Sutil = Mercedes , Bianci = FerrariWebsta wrote: Remember, Findia chose the more expensive Sutil over Bianchi after seeing both of them in the car in Winter Testing.
That is why FI chose Sutil, no other.

I think this is the only driver who can work well with Vettel. And also bring in the points. And Adrian Newey would have to stay.
