2015 F1

Confirmed 2015 F1 driver line-up



Finally, the open secrets about Fernando Alonso and Sebastian Vettel’s futures became officially clear on Thursday.

Ferrari announced that Spaniard Alonso and the Italian team have ended their relationship “by common consent”, opening the door for Vettel to arrive from Red Bull.

It is expected Alonso will move to McLaren, with the British team delaying an announcement for now until it has decided the identity of his Honda-powered teammate.

After three mediocre seasons with McLaren, Jenson Button is still to learn of his fate with the Woking-based outfit, a situation which the 34 year-old described as ‘laughable’, in an interview with The Mirror.

Limited chance of Button getting new team next season

If McLaren were to part ways with Button, there would be several teams that would be out of bounds for the Briton. Firstly, Ferrari have signed Sebastian Vettel from Red Bull and, despite a poor season, Kimi Raikkonen has gone without criticism and will remain with the Tifosi.

The first week of this month, Force India boss Vijay Mallya confirmed that the team will retain its current driver line-up for the 2015 Formula One season by giving Sergio Perez an extension, something they have already done in the case of Nico Hulkenberg.

Lotus and Williams retained their current drivers for the 2015 Formula One campaign.
