    2019 Driver seat speculation

    With the following teams still yet to anounnce their driver line up for 2019, who do you think is going where? The following are some of the possibilities :-

    Ferrari - Vettel [Raikonen/Leclerc]
    HAAS - [Kimi/Grojean/Leclerc/Perez ] [Magnussen/Ocon]
    Torro Rosso [Hartley???] [Possibiy Kyvat]
    Sauber [Leclerc/Perez] [Erickson/Markelov]
    Force India [Possibly Stroll] [Perez/Ocon/Magnussen]
    Williams [Sirotkin/Markelov/Rowland] [Kubica/Ocon/Grosjean]



    I think HAAS has a unique opportunity of picking the very best available at moment, they may fancy the Force India pair whom have reliably obtained the best possible points finish available to Force India these last two years. And they have made less mistakes compared to the HAAS pair this season. It would not surprise me if they signed Kimi; if he loses his Ferrari seat. If they do, l have a feeling that Grosjean may well lose his seat.

    I also have a feeling that Hartley may be given the shove in 2019, l wonder which Redbull junior would be getting this unprecedented opportunity.

    I also think Sauber would work hard to sign Perez if the can. If they do, l think Erickson may also get the shove in 2019. The ideal situation for Sauber would be to sign two drivers with funding behind them. Perez would be ideal because he is a more capable driver than Erickson and maybe Markelov. Both have huge funding behind them.

    The smart move at Force India would be to hang on to Perez if they can, they would not want his ability, money and experience going into the hands of their competition.

    Problem with Ocon is that he is Mercedes "owned" so I don't see him going to Haas or Sauber. Williams needs a better car before Ocon can go there. I think FI keep Perez.
