The biggest news of the past seven days involves the confirmed 2014 calendar and Nico Hulkenberg’s return to Force India. On tomorrow’s #F1Chat, we’ll be discussing the calendar and talking about the remaining few seats left to fill…
The 2014 calendar has been confirmed and New Jersey, Mexico and Korea are absent. Thoughts on the calendar? What do you think about Abu Dhabi hosting the final round of the season? Do you think Korea will return to the calendar? New Jersey is off again – but does that really surprise you? Do you think it will ever go ahead? Bernie Ecclestone is insisting it will go ahead in 2015 – thoughts on this? Austria and Russia are additions to the 2014 calendar – thoughts? There’s a week break between Australia and Malaysia, which have been back-to-back races since 2007 – what do you think of this? Doesn’t it logistically make sense to put them back-to-back?
On Tuesday, Force India announced Nico Hulkenberg will be returning to the team in 2014 – thoughts? Who do you think will be his teammate? In other driver news, Sauber and Caterham are yet to announce either of their drivers, with Autosport reporting that Esteban Gutierrez has spoken with the Caterham team, and they’ve thrown Heikki Kovalainen’s name into the mix too. Who do you see going where?
McLaren’s Martin Whitmarsh said this week that he thinks Mercedes will be the frontrunners in 2014 with a good budget, facilities and people – what do you think? Will things be shaken up by the new rules in 2014?
