Australia will be the final through the years.

Next season I am thinking of in the previews doing a short profile of one of the drivers, with each driver getting a race (that is closely related to them).

cool thing. I was thinking about doing a rookie profile "meet the new boys" section pre australia as there are technically 4 rookies (gio is classified as he has competed in less than 6 races). considering 3 are technically british, should be interesting (even though albon races under a thai license, kinda like armstrong being a kiwi but has an italian license and ed jones racing under a uae license).

if this were a podcast, id be trying to do like a 00's dbz style thing :lol:

Haha. The only issue I can see with my idea is that there are 3 Brits (so who do I silverstone to)? And I feel there is a driver who would be better suited to write about before the Candian Grand Prix than Lance Stroll

silverstone Id say hamilton (went last year and the reception was epic...ironically I was the only one waving and supporting leclerc in the main grandstand during the F2 drivers parade (it was empty with nobody minus some people taking pictures in hamilton gear and me and my dad were the only ferrari fans. I yelled come on charles and he waved ) also fuoco looked happy.

Canada would be lewis or kubica (kubica had that horrific accident in 07 but won in 08 after hamilton crashed into kimi...in the pit lane :| )

EDIT - kubica definitely canada. Lewis silverstone for his f1 and gp2 record there (he overtook 2 people in maggots / becketts)

Double Edit - 1 thing I was surprised by is last year silverstone, the F1 tv people cut the crowd audio post qualifying as the main grandstand gave seb the same reaction lewis got in monza

Excellent list. Personally I would have put Gasly in Bahrain and Grosjean in Spa (horrifc accident in 2012 but tremendous drive to the podium in 2015 in what was essentially a 2014 lotus with a 2015 merc engine...and the team had gone bankrupt / in administration). But doing this would create a headache as to where to put tonnes of drivers :|

Nice thinking, its only a draft at the moment. Although some will not move.

The reason I picked Grosjean for Bahrian was simple, first podium. Gasly was home race as was Max. A couple I have just shoved in at random places (Such as Norris and Bottas)

fair enough. Russia would be good for Bottas as he had his 1st win there + team orders this year despite being a lot stronger than lewis

One way I could play around with Grosjean and Gasly is to move Max to Japan (where he first drove an F1 car )

Mick Schumacher. son of Micheal, has signed for Prema in F2 for 2019. Prema were his title winning team in Euro F3 this year and have also won F2 with Leclerc and Gasly.

In other F2 news Nikita Mazepin (GP3 runner up) has signed for ART.

not surprised by Mick driving the car formerly belonging to Gasly, Leclerc and de Vrys. Nikita with ART was semi-expecting as he was with Force India (meaning arden was a path) until the takeover (and I doubt prema will want him considering Stroll owns the team). Max. Gunther might be in prema next year, unless Gelael is retained :|

If Hubert can afford it, likely he will be with ART as well. Russian Time is also being sold apparently. Carlin are likely to retain Camara but have heard rumours he may be heading to Prema.
Markelov will be out of F2.
