2013 Formula One F1 Driver Line-up, Rumor Round-up & 2014 Silly Season Rumors - April 27th

By Mike Sulka

The 2013 Formula One F1 season engines have gone quiet after the fourth round of the season with a full three weeks between the Bahrain Grand Prix and the European opener at Barcelona, Spain.

Red Bull's Mark Webber continues to be the hottest seat that may be open. The latest talk has Webber off to Porsche and Le Mans style racing. Though that has also been downplayed a bit with Webber saying he has "years" left to race in Formula One.

Meanwhile, Kimi Raikkonen and Lotus appear to be made for each other, just look at the results! But, Raikkonen is only signed through 2013. Even with Raikkonen's rising stock, Lotus Boss Eric Boullier is hoping the team can keep him and that feeling good within the team - and not money - will keep Kimi.

Ferrari had a dreadful Bahrain, while Massa had driven well up to that Grand Prix. However, he finished 15th at Bahrain. Massa had managed to keep himself out of the rumors with the good results, will he return to them if Spain doesn't go as planned ?

One driver that brings a lot of emotional interest, is the possible return of Robert Kubica who is said to have been testing in the Mercedes F1 simulator. As for whether he will ever return after such a long lay-off, its very unlikely.

Engine rumors continue with Honda, Toyota, and VW said to have an interest in the new V6 engines. VW has said they aren't interested, while the Honda/McLaren tie-up is waiting for a denial. Sauber has also been linked to Honda engines. As for Toyota, its been said they would return with Williams. Not exactly a powerhouse to make a return worthwhile in our eyes.

Toro Rosso with Renault is another talking point, and Marussia is rumored to be acquiring Ferrari or Mercedes engines for 2014.

So there it is, another week of off-track talk from around the world of Formula One F1.

We can't wait!
