Form updated: Luca Badoer and Romain Grosjean added

Yep, if something sounds too good to be true, it probably is.

Michael Schumacher will not in fact be replacing Massa after the F2007 testing demonstrated that the neck injuries he suffered from a motorbike accident in February aren't healed enough for a race return. Long-time Ferrari test driver Luca Badoer will be taking the seat instead. Its a shame about Schumi, but after 11 years with the team I think its justified reward for Luca. Plus we potentially have an Italian racing for Ferrari at Monza. Special indeed.

Do we think he'll hold on to the seat until Felipe's return? Maybe a chance for Marc Gene to get back on the grid?

The other change to the driver line up is Renault finally ditching Nelson Piquet Jr. Its about damn time. GP2 and Renault development driver Romain Grosjean has not yet been confirmed to replace him (Renault are yet to find out if their race ban appeal is successful) but it seems a forgone conclusion.

The form is now updated and ready to use.
