Old(er)F1 Drivers

Anyone other than me ready to see some of the older F1 drivers retire (Trulli, Barrichello, Coulthard, Fisichella)? Seems these guys aren't racing to win any more, although their experience is making a contribution to their teams I'm sure. But I'd rather see some much younger blood take their places.

As for this weekend, I'm hoping to see Massa and Kimi on top, in that order.
'08 Carrera S 6MT Guards Red/Black ext leather, Carbon fiber pkg, sport exh, sport chrono +, PASM, Nav, Bose, 19" forged turbos, red tranny tunnel
'07 MV Agusta F4 1000 R 1+1, Corse Red/Silver, RG3 race pipes and factory race ECU

They aren't racing to win because their teams aren't racing to win. I think they are all still great drivers (except for Fisi...he did crap with the Renault). I think it's good to have a mix of experienced and new guys. Besides, Coulthard interview are so much fun.

I agree. These guys should move over and give younger drivers a chance. Money and fame...hard to pass up.
After Monaco, I'd like to see Sutil do well, though I doubt we'll see a Force India driver on the podium any time soon.
The 1-series is compact, endlessly involving, and absurdly fast...It is also more fun than a caffeinated circus monkey. - Automobile.
