    Williams have just confirmed their 2008 line-up; Rosberg will partner Nakajima.

    Nice to see some new names there. I hope for a good season for Timo Glock, he did a good job last years (2005 Rookie of the Year in ChampCar, 2007 GP2 title). In my books he earned this seat, especially at a team as Toyota.

    Sebastian Bourdais of course now has a lot of eyes on him due to his results in America. Of course this is a whole other league, so we'll see.

    As for Alonso, I'm really curious were he is going to end. I wonder if Renault really wants him.

    You won't be laughed at, I was asking myself the same question. It's his nephew.

    Yep, Ayrton has even talked about him before that if you thought he (Ayrton) was a good driver wait until you see his nephew Bruno.

    As far I have seen, he is not nearly as impressive as other drivers of his generation. Nowhere near the level of his uncle.

    Bruno may be good, but he hasn't had the results his uncle had when he was his age. Ayrton basically anihilated the competition in any series he competed, except in karting, where he never was world champion.

    They are out of 2008 season, cause they couldn't make a deal with McLaren concerning providing them with chassis.
    More about drivers of what I've read:
    Firstly, Renault offers Alonso a seat for 2 years with $90 million salary. And his partner will be Nelson Piquet Jr. Thus, Fisichella is done ( ).

    EDIT: Alonso should leave Renault next year having another young teammate

    It seems increasingly unlikely that Fisichella will stay at Renault. I see some very interesting pairings shaping up, Lewis vs Heikki and Alonso vs Piquet, those should be interesting(if they get confirmed).

    At Williams, I'm predicting a Rosberg domination, I don't think Nakajima was the best choice but we never know.

    PS: If Alonso gets a beating by Piquet then his career could be in problem

    I hope that will happen. I never liked Alonso and his superficial personality...
