Latest updates to the 2010 F1 driver list

109 comments on “2010 F1 drivers and teams”

  1. Is this still up to date?

    1. Campos Meta have signed Bruno Senna

      1. Toro Rosso have signed Sebastien Buemi.

        1. Mercedes GP (ex-Brawn) signed Nico Rosberg and Nick Heidfeld

  2. The page was created last week, so yes. Only three drivers confirmed for 2010 so far.

  3. Best start to clear an 11th space on the list. here’s hoping, anyway.

  4. 2010 could well be the polar opposite of 2009 in that we’ve had next to no driver moves this year, but next year we could easily see a big reshuffle in some of the big names.

    I have to disagree with Keith’s assessment that Williams have let Rosberg down – in my opinion it’s the other way around. Nico always looked promising, but last year he was nowhere near convincing enough against Nakajima, throwing away a couple of critical scoring opportunities, whereas Nakajima dragged the car into the points on a couple of occasions that it should perhaps not have been there. If Rosberg does not improve in 2009 he may struggle to find a drive, as Williams will be compelled to keep Nakajima (or another Japanese driver) if they stick to their Toyota engine deal, and certainly young Hulkenberg looks promising for a race seat sometime soon.

  5. Hasn’t Vettel got a longer deal with Red Bull then?

  6. Got to agree with Paul that Vettel must be on a multi-year contract otherwise McLaren will snap him up in 2010. Then we’d find out how good Lewis is….

    1. I think we already know how good hamilton is. If he gets a decent car to drive, instead of a shed! i think the rest of the line up is unimportant because he’ll be the front runner anyway.

      Will be good to see him race against Button thoe because he will probably be a better backup driver for Hamilton than Kovalainen

  7. you forgot Brawn Racing and USF1

    1. Neither are confirmed yet.

  8. Ross Brawn GP is now.

  9. Chris Reynolds
    7th March 2009, 4:32

    USF1 has already been disbanded. WOW the new name US Grand Prix Engineering just rolls off the tongue ah? What the ?!@#$@ <– the dollar sign is for Bernie.

  10. USGPE AND 2 OTHER TEAMS ARE ALSO UNANNOUNCED.

  11. and what about Bourdais?

  12. this is not up to date coz it doesnt have the outher torro rosso driver and it doesnt have brawn g-p team

  13. this needs brawn gp and usgpe also the two that may come prodrive and hyundi

  14. Lola will be in next years season

  15. oh yea also that litespeed and lola. oh i almost forgot about isport!

  16. 7 new teams have submitted applications for the 2010 season. They are as follows:

    Campos
    Litespeed
    Lola
    March Racing Organisation
    Prodrive
    Superfund
    Team US F1

    Its unlikely that all 7 teams will be granted entry to next season however with the grid being expanded to 26 slots, at least 3 of them will be there.

  17. ok…. i cant staY UP 2 DATE WITH everything….

  18. The 2010 entries, apart from the FOTA ones, are these:

    » AT&T WilliamsF1:
    Toyota engine contract in place, alternatively with Cosworth
    » Campos Meta 1:
    possibly running Dallara-designed car, likely with Cosworth engines
    » Prodrive:
    allegedly with Aston Martin-badged customer Mercedes engines
    » Team US F1:
    Cosworth engines confirmed
    » Lola Grand Prix:
    Cosworth engines confirmed
    » Litespeed GP:
    with Mike Gascoyne
    » March Racing Organisation:
    likely with Cosworth engines; perhaps a joint effort with N.Technology
    » Team Superfund:
    with Alex Wurz; Cosworth engines confirmed
    » Epsilon Euskadi:
    with Joan Villadelprat and Sergio Rinland; likely with Cosworth engines
    » Brabham:
    backed by Franz Hilmer of Formtech, and possibly Colin Kolles; acquired the former Super Aguri base; no engine partner announced, but likely Cosworth
    » N.Technology:
    likely with Cosworth engines; perhaps a joint effort with March

  19. yay its been updated ^_^

  20. I bet if one new team joins F1 alot of the others might follow

  21. It is going to be Dainca Patrick racing for Team USF1.

  22. isnt Lotus comin back 2 the f1??? im sure ive heard it on the tv??????

  23. i dont think so…. all the entrys have been submitted

    lotus was going to be the trading name of another of the teams (they apparently bought the rights) but they were not put on the shortlist of 2010 entries so…

    SO EXCITED WE HAVE PROPER F1 BACK! GO AUSTRALIA 2010 WITH 26 CARS! WOOPEE!

  25. ok….. glocks got the 2010 contract

  26. This needs updating. BMW are out so sauber may also be unless they can find another engine provider. Massa is not racing again.

  27. no massa is not racing for the rest of the season or the next too

  28. Alonso is going to Ferrari. Having a 2010 contract doesn’t mean you are going to be racing for that team, it just means that team is going to have to pay you off.

    Massa is staying at Ferrari if fit to race in 2010 otherwise they will keep Raikkonen.

    If Raikkonen does leave Ferrari then he will probably go back to McLaren and replace Kovalianen.

  29. Lotus will go to Malaysia. It call 1Malaysia F1 Team.

    no lotus is lotus… -_-

    1. ehemmm…. lotus owned by malaysian which is proton… the team just use that name because of it is already a big name in f1… the team owned by malaysian company which is for sure was malaysian…… malaysia boleh!!!(malaysia can)

      1. Arshy_toyota fan
        18th October 2009, 13:20

        Proton only bought a portion of the old lotus rnd and technology. and If you drive a Proton, you would know that it over steers all the time at any corner, when you try to take it in sport mode. So Proton owning Lotus is not the point, and BTW, the Lotus F1 team has nothing to do with Proton.

        can anyone confirm if Timo has the contract for 2010. I hear Toyota is trying to get KIMI in their team. who gets out then…?

  31. I just have two questions, How up to date is this list? and is there really only 5 drivers with 2010 contracts?

  32. My take on 2010 line ups
    McLaren
    Hamilton + Raikkonen
    Ferrari
    Alonso + Massa
    Brawn GP
    Button + Rosberg
    Red Bull
    Webber + Vettel
    Renault
    Kovalainen + Kubica
    Toro Rosso
    Buemi + Alguersuari
    Williams
    Barrichello + Hulkenberg
    Force India
    Sutil + Liuzzi
    Toyota
    Glock + Trulli
    USF1
    Wurz + Summerton
    Manor
    Klien + Davidson
    Campos
    De La Rosa + Petrov
    Lotus
    Fauzy + Senna
    BMW Sauber (Qaudbak)?
    Heidfeld + Fisichella

  33. Its hard to predit the new teams, as they are not so heavily rumoured.

    Brawn
    Button+Rosberg

    Red Bull
    Webber+Vettel

    Mclaren
    Hamilton+Kubica

    Ferrari
    Alonso+Massa

    Toyota
    Trulli+Glock

    Williams
    Barrechello+Hulkemburg

    Renault
    Riakkonen+Grosjean

    Force India
    Sutil+Liuzzi

    Torro Rosso
    Buemi+Alguesuari

    BMW Sauber(Or whatever they’ll be called)
    Heidfeld+Klien

    Heres the rumours for the new teams…

    US F1
    *Jaques Villeneuve
    *Juan Pablo Montoya
    *Danica Patrick
    *Brendon Hartley
    *Scott Speed

    My guess is that it will not be Villeneuve or Montoya, probably not Danica either. It may well end up being 2 drivers not mentioned above.

    Campos F1
    *Pedro De La Rosa
    *Jaime Alguesuari
    *Alex Wurz
    *Lucas Di Grassi

    I think:
    De la Rosa+Di Grassi

    Manor

    I have actually heard nothing about this team. Litterally nothing, apart from their entry.

    Lotus

    The same goes for Lotus unfortunately.

  34. Well Red Bull, Toro Rosso and Ferrari are certain.
    Redbull
    Vettel + Webber
    Toro Rosso
    Buemi + Alguersari
    Ferrari
    Alonso + Massa

    The other teams have a few certainties but a lot of guesses here.
    McClaren
    Hamilton (certain) + Raikkonen ( if not of to go compete in the rally championship)
    Williams
    Hülkenberg (quite certain, really exciting!) + Barrichello (if Button and Brawn Gp can work things out)
    Brawn Gp
    Button (almost certain) + Rosberg (rumour, could also go to McClaren but will leave Williams)
    BMW
    Heidfeld + I have no idea
    Toyota
    Glock (not certain but seems like it) + Anyone but Trulli, possibly Kovalainen.
    Renault
    Grosjean (not certain but he doesn’t do bad) + Kubica (probably the announcement for next week).
    Force India
    Sutil+Liuzzi (no idea about both of them but especially Sutil isn’t doing bad, although he does destroy a few cars more than he should)

    The other teams and drivers: no idea.
    Some drivers to take into account: Vitaly Petrov, Lucas Di Grassi (excellent Gp2 drivers), Neel Jani ( I think he was talking with one of the new teams, don’t hear much about him anymore), Andy Soucek (possibly Campos??).
