I disagree. I always found Alguersuari to talk over his interviewers and overall a lot more arrogant. In a test driver role, I expect that this is a characteristic you don't want. Buemi has always seemed a lot more humble.

Don't forget that Alguersuari butted heads with Helmut Marko. This is something you should probably never do if you want to race for RBR.

Senna's sponsors may have just spilled the beans and let out that Senna will be going to Williams.

Looks like LRGP has developed a system to keep the ride height of the nose more consistent under braking to improve overall downforce performance of the front wing.

I wonder if the FIA will let this slide.

yeah the guy seemed pretty confident. Mr. Morals (aka Frank Williams) is all about the money these days, so I accept that future. I wonder how many times he has hypothetically kicked himself for not selling a stake in the team to BMW. We'd still have BMW, and Williams wouldn't be a disgrace (he sold a steak in the team eventually).

That's not a RB7, it is old. Pre RB5.

yeah don't they fit newer parts to old chassis to give them a facelift and make them look modern? that was at least what they did to the one they brought to Texas

They also repaint them in the latest liveries. Which for most would probably be more than enough to convince.

Confirmed! Bruno Senna to Williams.

Also, Damon Hill will be working for Sky to provide, "expert analysis for their bespoke F1 channel".

Great news for Bruno, another senna joined the Williams...kinda feel bad for Rubens, he deserved a race seat more than Pastor Maldonado, or a proper send off farewell at Brazil a few months ago.

Now just one seat left!

It would be hilarious if Rubens got that rumored seat at Caterham and started kicking Williams' ass (which may very well happen next season anyway).

yeah not a lot of people know that Bruno stopped racing when he was a kid right after his uncle passed away... and didn't pick it up again until he was in his 20s. so he does not take it lightly to say the least

wow, looks like a good time to put 20 down on Schumey and 100 on Alonso/McLaren.

isn't humiliating that Alonso is 5:1 and Massa is 50:1? hahaha
