2008 FIA Formula One World Championship Entry List

FIA today released the 2008 Formula One World Championship Entry List. Quick look at it seems to reveal that Anthony Davidson and Takuma Sato will drive for Super Aguri in 2008. The team however clarified that the drivers have not been signed yet:

“The contracts of both drivers are still under negotiation. It is the team’s intention to retain both for the sake of continuity and because we are very satisfied with them. But no contracts have been signed yet.”

The entry list also confirms that McLaren were handed the final car numbers 22 and 23. This probably means Mclaren will occupy the last garage in the pit lane and will have Force India as neighbours. The only TBA left is Adrian Sutil’s team mate in Force India. There are fresh rumours linking Giancarlo Fisichella to the final vacant seat on the grid but the official confirmation of the Force India line up for 2008 is expected on January 11 in Delhi.

The teams have time to change their drivers until the beginning of the new season on March 16.

    Never heard of Kazuki Nakajima, is he any good?

    He did pretty well when he replaced Alex Wurz for the last race of 2007 season in Brazil. But also managed to run over few of his mechanics during the pit stop in that race :-) He is one of the Toyota young driver program guys. And like Rosberg and Piquet he is also a son of former F1 driver.

    Ah, the guy who ran over his pit crew! I remember that :)

    Well, why was the pit crew standing on the sidewalk?:)

    I would run over Santa Claus before I would run over a good mechanic.

  5. F1WolfNo Gravatar says:

    perhaps those mechanics weren’t so good :-)

    Lewis Hamilton is taking the no. 23 car, according to the coverage of the McLaren launch, coinciding with his 23rd birthday.
