Who should go:
Schumacher - he has had 3 years now to do something worth remembering (other than crashing into people from behind), and the meager take was one podium and one ruined pole position. I dare say that who ever would have been driving in his place would have ended up with a similar (or better!) statistic. Time to hang it up and join the Mercedes team management.
Massa - he's putting up a good fight now, but ANOTHER year blocking a Ferrari seat? As soon as he signs another contract extension he'll fall back into mediocrity once again. Come on. Time to give someone else a shot, please. Anybody.
Glock - his existence is pointless at Marussia. He probably has enough talent left in him to do fine in a better team, but his long term tenure in this go-nowhere seat is useless to him and his career. Better to go try something else, if he can't get a quicker ride.
Senna - just didn't cut it, did he? If he gets another ride next season he is the new Liuzzi. I hate to see the name disappear, and he's a fine young man, but just hasn't been convincing...
Buemi - funny that he is almost never mentioned when it comes to a spot on the grid... he gets no love. Probably time to move on and try another series.
Current GP2 crop - I don't really see any of them amounting to much... at least not the top rankers from this season.
Who should come in:
Bottas - no doubts. I look forward to seeing how well he can do. He paid his dues waiting.
Wickens - got quiet around him, unfortunately... and strangely. I would love to see him take a stab at it, given how well he did in the lower Formulae.
Chandhok - should really take Karthikeyan's place as the sponsorship-bringing Indian in F1. I never understood why the sponsors pushed Narain instead of the quicker and more marketable Karun.
Kubica - if he is healed up and fit, would be a no-brainer to return. At least to try and see how he does.
Some talented American - not really sure who that would be as there is no clear candidate. Rossi hasn't really grown into the shoes - any other ideas?
Frijns - possibly the next big thing... and looks like he'll be the tester for someone next season. Rightfully so.
