    So what do you expect from the first dutch driver since a long time.

    I think for Guido its important to win the internal battle with his teammate.

    Will be difficult to get into the points though.

    Guido will have new upgrades on the car and thinks he can now challenge the Marussias. Lets hope so as I think this will be a crucial weekend for him.

    I hope you mean that he will have the same upgrades as his team mate. :)

    What do you guys think, will Guido stay for another year with Caterham in 2014?

    It's not like they have a reason to boot him. He made the most of their car, definitely.

    He did what he could and had the Measure of PIC who was a year more experienced than him. I think he will be with Caterham by 2014

    I think VDG will still be at Caterham next year, but I'd much rather see Heikki in his place.

    Caterham is very complicated at the moment. Pic has a contract, but GvdG seems to be fast after the tyre changes. Rossi and Kovalainen could get a seat too.

    If VDG and Pic don't manage to take back P10 in the WCC from Marussia they might ironically guarantee their continued employment because Caterham wouldn't be able to afford reinstating Kovalainen.

    Decent move for Sauber.
    Very lucky for VDG. He didn't really deserve another seat in F1

    I actually think he did. He showed good performances in variable conditions, which in reality is the only chances to prove something in the bottom two teams.
