Must admit, I'm half surprised no one's been dropped or switched out yet, from any of the teams. Always an intriguing part of the season to me, usually the summer break is when most of it happens, so anyone heard any rumors? Speculation? The Massa debate has been done to death, any other drivers looking like they might get the axe in favor of someone else? Right now I've got to think Senna ought to be a bit nervous, but what do I know.

Anyone heard anything? Who has got to impress in the next few races or they might be out of a job?

When was it last time anyone newsworthy switched seats in mid season, discounting accident related substitutes?

I think any driver change in F1 is 'news worthy'.

Massa will hopefully go. I can also see both Toro Rosso drivers being dropped around Hungary if they don't improve. Plus you can never rule out a driver change at HRT - for the last two years it's happened at Silverstone I think, so we're approaching the right time...
