Let's discuss whether or not Valtteri Bottas is a pay driver or not somewhere else and stick to the 2013 Silly Season while it lasts.
Especially when most drivers in F1 could be considered a pay driver.
Being that the Force India open gig has more threads than you can shake a stick at, I'm reaching into the season. Who will be the first to go? We have IMO 3 drivers already on the hot seat for a reason or another.
Paul di Resta is on a short leash. He isn't bringing much to the team financially, and FI looks to be strapped for cash this season. He could be replaced if the results don't come and the money issue gets worse.
Jean-Éric Vergne and Daniel Ricciardo didn't do much last season, and Red Bull is much more impatient in it's drivers in the last couple of seasons, so one of these drivers could see Félix da Costa coming fast. Or even a return of Buemi.
If Lotus wants to have Räikkönen challenge they need to keep Romain Grosjean, but if the season winds down and the season is not going the right way for the team and Grosjean, I could see them finally pulling the trigger and putting a new driver in the seat.
