"We haven't looked at it seriously, I think it is a bit too early and there are a few guys ahead of me in the queue, things like what Lewis will do or what Michael will do, will probably have an impact on what everyone is doing."
I think Italy 2009 pretty much sums up his career. Qualifies on the 2nd row with the best strategy, but loses positions to Barrichello and Button on the first lap and then finishes over a minute behind.
Caterham is a pretty good fit for both driver and team.
If he decides to leave Caterham then I think he'll end up taking the spot in a team like Force India or Sauber if one of their guys moves upwards. Having said that, given the recent improvements at Williams, If I was Sir Frank, I'd be on the phone to Kovi and telling Senna, thanks but no thanks for next season.
The thing I hate about this post is that there's nothing in it I can disagree with, and I really want to because there are few drivers as likeable as Heikki.
On the other hand, it wouldn't be harsh to bet on him to at least equal what guys like Massa, Hulkenberg, Senna and - for now - Button are doing with their machinery if he had it.
Not unless they drop Timo as it looks odds on Max Chilton will be in the seat vacated by Pic.
But it's not as if Kovalainen had much of a choice after his poor performances in 2009 at McLaren, as for Glock I'm sure he had other options.
Too many pay drivers around, but several are decent enough to stay or to be considered for a seat.
With Kobayashi, Heidfeld and Kovalainen getting pushed out of F1 by pay drivers, just shows the position F1 is going into, as all 3 deserve to be in Formula 1. Saying that though (doing an Eddie Jordan here) some of the pay drivers have proved themselves such as Maldonado, Perez, Pic, and Petrov have proved themselves or have done a respectable job against their peers.
But they will probably take Bottas, which would be good as well.
Don't forget they now have to fork out for @ExtremeNinja's salary GermanF1 so probably need every penny they can snaffle
