With the news of Bottas going to Ferrari to replace Kimi I have been doing research on Silly Season news with Hass coming in and other teams. I figured I put this thread up to here other people's opinions. I will update this down the road with some news coming in and see what goes on.

Current 2016 lineups
Mercedes- Hamilton (44)/Rosburg (6)
Ferrari- Vettal(5)/Raikkonen (7)
Williams- Massa(19)/Bottas (77)

Force India- Perez(11)/Hulkenburg(27)
Sauber- Nasr(12)/Ericcson(9)
Toro Rosso- Verstappen(33)/Sainz Jr?(55)
Lotus- Maldonado(13)/?
Manor Marussia- Will Stevens?(28)/Roberto Merhi?(98)
Haas- Romain Grosjean ( 8 )/?



Endangered of loosing their seats-
Jenson Button

Looking for rides or not signed/Rumored rides-

Sauber announced they will keep the same lineup. So Nasr is not going to Williams and Ericcson is not going to Indy Car as of right now.

Bottas has not been denying the rumors that he is going to Ferrari.

I say give him a ride in like a lower series, then work him up. We are close to another American driver win... I can taste Hamilton's tears now...

He is in GP2 right now and was a in a young drivers program for Caterham in 2012. They might make him a test driver for the first year so he can get use to the car before they put him in the fire.

Speaking of Alexander Rossi, the young american driver has been ruled back into the discussion for the new Hass F1 Team. He was a former Caterham and Marussia test driver and nearly filled in for the late Jules Bianchi when he was first injured before Marussia decided to run 1 car in Russia. He is currently fighting for the GP2 championship.

News coming out of Mclaren Honda that they might sign back Jenson Button for 2016 with the rumors that Fernando Alonso might go to Red Bull in 2017. This is going to make Kevin Magnussen sit out 1 more year or go with GP2 driver Stoffel Vandoore to another team. Most likely that would be Manor Marussia or whatever Renault is trying to start up.

Another peace of news that if Kimi Raikkonen wants a extension with Ferrari, he would have to sign by July 31 which is Tomorrow.

Renault is trying to start up a F1 team. That might have to either buyout Lotus or be the 24th car on the grid which will cause them to start their program from the ground up. If they buyout Lotus, that might get them their place and parts to start out at. That will make them be ahead of Manor at the beginning of the season. This might make Roman Grosjean and Paster Maldonado loose their rides for 2016.

Red Bull has been planning with their Italian team, Toro Rosso, to get rid of Renault engines ever since the beginning of the year. 3 manufacturers are willing to give Red Bull their engines. They are:
Aston Martin- Never ran F1
Ferrari- Speed
Mercades- Power
This is the reason why Renault wants to get back into F1 and try to buy out the team that took over Renault in 2011 which is Lotus.

It has been confirmed that Nico Hulkenburg, Esteban Gutierrez, and Jean-Eric Vergne are the three that Hass F1 wants on their team and fight for the two rides. Alexander Rossi has been out there in the ruling but not as high as these three.

Also Sauber has been rumored to change engine supplier from Ferrari to Renault. Why they will do that I will never know.

I hear Jenson Button may retire in order to become a host on Top Gear!

Don't be suprised if Haas' Lineup is Esteban Gutierrez and Alexander Rossi.

That would most likely be the lineup since this is a team from the Americas but if they Hulkenburg, that will help with funding so much since he won Le Mans.

That would break my heart seeing Button retire. I did kinda know it was coming since like Kenny mentioned that him going to Top Gear would be a choice.

Stoffel Vandoorne is going to replace Jenson Button at McLaren Honda for the 2016 season. This could mean Button might retire or if lucky, goes to Williams.

Esteban Gutierrez is looking closer to be going to Hass F1 Team. Hass also put out there that it is going to be a long shot to get Hulkenburg.

Since I have been busy with school I haven't kept up as much so here is everything from this week.

Red Bull has narrowed down the engine choices to 2 with Ferrari and Mercedes. These engine types will help Red Bull tremendously with their awesome aerodynamics.

Williams play down the rumors of Bottas going to Ferrari with Massa closing in on his renewal. This can help Kimi Raikkonen get his ride back.

This time limit for any teams entering in has ended with 11 teams being in the series. Renault ran out of time and couldn't buy out Lotus quick enough. Possible teams for 2017 is Renault and maybe even Audi returning.

Kimi Raikkonen is returning to Ferrari meaning Bottas is back at Williams. The only problem that I am confused about is that Segio Perez is in the discussion for the Ferrari ride.

Also Josef Newgarden is in the discussion to join Hass in F1 for 2016. This would be amazing since he was trying to get in F1 before he went to Indycar. We can finally have an American in a F1 car!!

Daniil Kvyat was told that his seat at Red Bull was secure while Max Verstappen is going to return to Toro Rosso for another season.
Williams has been looking at a young kid in GP2 but they won't start giving him a deal till 2017.

Kevin Magnussen is going to have to look for more options next season since McLaren is looking to either keep Jenson Button for another year or give GP2 championship contender Stoffel Vandoorne into the McLaren seat. This leaves Magnussen out of the McLaren job so he is going to have to look for a new ride. Hass is a possibility for a ride but other options on seats that are not settles for next season are Force India or Lotus. He is worried about this since it would be harder to get a ride in F1 in 2017 since most contracts are set for 2018.

Also Max Chilton is looking for a return to F1 with either Hass or Manor. yeah...
