-Who on earth are Lotus going to pick, to fill his shoes? No-one from the top-drawer is available, however from the second rank, there are some good ones to choose from, and these drivers, even if tied up contractually, are always available in practice, it's just a matter of money and compensation.
I'm thinking Hülkenberg, Chilton and DiResta. Massa might be available too, and I believe the same to be the case with both Williams-drivers (doubt Bottas want to, or can leave) and also Sutil?
-If Räikkönen leaves, it's going to take some mobilisation from Enstone to ensure they keep their place in the pecking order I think. A lot is hanging on Räikkönen at Lotus, IMHO.
So what's your view?
