With the recent announcements that Pastor Maldonado is to race alongside Romain Grosjean at Lotus next season, that Nico Hulkenberg is to return to Force India to partner Sergio Perez, and that Adrian Sutil will move to Sauber alongside Esteban Gutierrez, the final pieces are falling into place in the jigsaw that is Formula One racing’s 2014 team and driver line-up.
Thus far only one team – Mercedes – have confirmed an unchanged driver roster, while leading lights Red Bull, Ferrari, Lotus and McLaren have all replaced one man for the coming campaign. Just one team – Caterham – has yet to confirm a single driver, with the only other ‘available’ seat being at Marussia alongside Jules Bianchi.
The two rookies on the 2014 grid so far are Denmark’s Kevin Magnussen at McLaren and Russia’s Daniil Kvyat at Toro Rosso.
