I presume Grosjean and Maldonado have 21 different buttons on their steering wheel, one for each driver?

I'd say 22, they certainly can destroy their own race just by themselves...

You laugh but Maldonado definitely turned it around in the last third of the year. If he didn't have such a torrid mid-season, he might have been considered for a top spot (like at McLaren).

I'd say that's not a surprise. I hope Kimi has premarital agreement

I think Riku Kuvaja (Kimi's charge d'affaires) had that covered.

Technically the following has nothing to do with 2013, but it is interesting that Rory Byrne will be more involved in the development of 2014's car.

Also, looks like Sutil may be back in F1 given that he is in line for a seat fitting for the upcoming testing session in Barcelona.

Seven of the 11 Formula 1 teams are struggling financially to the extent that they are in "survival" mode, says McLaren team boss Martin Whitmarsh.

I'm not really surprised that some teams are but that many is

I've always wondered that it must be hard for the non car manufacturing teams... But then again I think of Subaru in rally how they left even after being successful..reminds me , I want Suby back in rally : ( maybe with the new WRX they'll be back : )

Accordibg to eurosport Renault is eager to reduce the number of customer teams it supplies in Formula 1, dismissing talk that it could provide engines to half the grid.

I'd guess that's mostly because of the off-season. F1A does do a lot to try and get rid of high expenses but clearly there's only so much they can do.

According to Finnish TV channel MTV3, Heikki Kovalainen is negotiating with Marussia, and could possibly replace Luiz Razia. Razia has reportedly had some troubles with his payments already.

Could be total BS, but sounds good to me if true. Heikki deserves to be in F1, although the car would be rubbish once again...

Sutil will be racing for Force India next season according to reports.

That Lotus steering wheel pic is hilarious.

Turun Sanomat says it's done deal...so 3.5 Finns in F1 in 2013!

Edit. False news. Ferrari strikes and Jules Bianchi gets Marussia position.
