My biggest worry going into next year is the limited fuel capacity. I don't want to watch a race where half of it is just making laps rather than racing to save fuel.

Saving fuel, saving tyres, what's the difference? I to just want to see wheel to wheel racing next year. And please let RBR build a lemon!

Pastor Maldonado has been signed by Lotus to partner Romain Grosjean in 2014.

I'm guessing this means that the deal with Quantum Motorsports is dead and they need Pastor's money to compensate.

That means Nico Hulkenberg is probably going back to Sauber, though Peter Sauber might have to be tossed before that can happen as he's evidently not happy Nico went for a seat-fitting at Lotus just before the US Grand Prix and would prefer not to have him back. The other option is Force India.

That's a shame as Hulkenberg is a top racer. I would really like to see what he could do in a better car. Maldonado is not a nice guy. He is just paying his way.

Nico evidently felt Lotus' financial issues (they're behind in salary payments not just to Kimi, but also staff and suppliers) are such that he decided against going to them, anyway.

I hear Paul di Resta is trying to get a drive in Indy car, so he obviously feels he can't get a seat in F1 next year.
