Beating Superstorm Sandy

To bring you up to date with events in the past couple of days, Sauber has confirmed Nico Hulkenberg for 2013. The team says that the second driver will be announced at a later date, but with Kamui Kobayashi explaining that he needs to find backing to continue in F1, we believe that Telmex-backed Mexican Esteban Gutierrez, who drove for the team in FP1 in Korea, is favourite for the seat.
Toro Rosso, meanwhile, has taken the pressure off its young line-up of Daniel Ricciardo and Jean-Eric Vergne.
