After seven years behind the wheels of a Formula 1 car, Adrian Sutil is out of drive for next season, with cash strapped Sauber team ditching the German for this year’s GP2 runner up Felipe Nasr and Caterham’s Marcus Ericsson. The 31 year old arrived in F1 after a successful career in juniour categories. In 2005, he finished runners up to future double F1 world champion Lewis Hamilton in Euroseries F3, in a field comprising of Paul di Resta, Sebastian Vettel and Loic Duval(Audi factory driver in WEC). The following year, he won the Japanese F3 series, earning himself a drive with Spyker.

After months of deliberation, McLaren has announced that Jenson Button will partner Fernando Alonso on their reunion with Japanese car maker Honda. It was a one-on-one fight between the experience and proven talent of Jenson Button versus the youth and promise of Kevin Magnussen. McLaren eventually went for the former. Whether McLaren made the right decision or not, that’s another debate which we’ll delve later in this article. The bottom line is Button will now be driving alongside what most people perceive as the fastest driver on the grid. And this is the perfect opportunity for the 34 year old to be rated alongside the likes of Alonso, Hamilton and Vettel, and not one level below the trio.

A lot has been said about how much of a challenge it has been for the engineers to design and manufacture the new generation of power units, which produce the same amount of power, while using 35% less fuel. It is also evident from the on baord footage and trackside observation that the new cars slide a lot more, making life difficult for the drivers. What the majority of the people have forgot is the effort made by Pirelli to make sure their tyres deal with the increased stress due to a 4x increase in torque.
