I can under stand that it is too early but there are some signings for 2017.

GP2:
There is Brazilian Red Bull driver Sergio Sette Camara who will drive for MP Motorsport.

GP3 Champion Charles Leclerc and fellow Ferrari developmental driver Antonio Fuoco will pair up with Prema.

FIA F3 EUROPE:

Prema has signed former Carlin driver Callum Illiot.

EUROFORMULA OPEN:

Canadian Devlin DeFrancesco will remain with Carlin as he will move up to the Euro Formula Open ranks.

INDY LIGHTS:

2 teams have signees.

Andretti Autosport have retained Canadian Dalton Kellett.

Belardi Autosport have signed 2 new drivers. Shelby Blackstock has traded teams after his campaign with Andretti Autosport and 2016 Pro Mazda series Champion Aaron Telitz.

Let me know who else did I missed.

Camara impressed me at Macau this year, so him, LeClerc and assuming Giovinazzi in GP2 sounds very good to me. I tend to only watch feeder series for important or good races, but I think I might watch GP2 from the start this year, and European F3.

his 2015 was nothing special, but this year he's come second in ADAC and Italian Formula 4 (worth noting he did 3 races fewer than the champion Marcos Siebert and was only behind by 15 points in Italian F4) and is currently leading the MRF Challenge Formula 2000 championship, having won two of the four races.

I don't think he's got the talent of his father, but I think he has a fair bit of potential.

Good news: Louis Deletraz has signed for a GP2 seat. He'll drive for RE next year.
Still a bummer he didn't win the FR3.5 title because of that flaming idiot Cipriani, but at least it hasn't harmed his career progress.

No way, he needs way more time. His F4 seasons were OK, but not overwhelming. By racing with Prema there's a clear upgrade path to GP2 first that I suspect will be used.

Only in case he takes a very dominant F3 title in 2017 I could see a remote chance, but even then I'm not sure. Where would he go in 2018?

There will be plenty of teams willing to give Schumacher a go. Any sign of talent he will be parachuted into F1 as quickly as possible. Verstappen got to F1 with just a 3rd in F3 and that was without the Schumacher name.

"Just" a third in F3 is a fantastic achievement for a rookie season in car racing altogether, especially when he was the better driver once he had accustomed to car racing, and amassed 10 wins over the season.

Mick hasn't shown that kind of special talent, and so I don't believe there's a realistic possibility for him to race in F1 in 2018.

Agreed. But surely a top 2 in F3 will show enough for teams to move in, considering who it is.

I'm not saying he will finish top 2, just saying if he does....

Carlin officially closes their GP2 program. Likely to focus on Indy Car. But their other Junior programs in British F3, Euro Formula Open and British F4 stay along with their Indy Lights program. They have expanded into USF2000.

http://www.autosport.com/news/report.ph ... her-series

Also, Carlin have signed US driver Garth Rickards for 2017 Indy Lights.

The Red Bull Junior Team has had a new overhaul.
Luis Leeds and Sergio Sette Camara have been dropped.
Neil Verhagen and Dan Ticktum have been added.

The latter one is surprising - in 2015 he was banned for two years (of which 1 suspended) after deliberately crashing into a competitor under SC after having overtaken 10 cars under the same SC.

Also Gasly has been confirmed today to drive in Super Formula this year.
So it's Gasly (Super Formula), Kari (GP3 - Arden), Verschoor (FR2.0 - MP and currently in Toyota Racing Series), Verhagen (FR2.0 - MP), Ticktum (FR2.0 - Arden)

This is going to keep me interested over the winter as I study Red Bull backed Richard Verschoor more closely, on the negative side yes he dominated two F4 series but you could question the quality and the low numbers of drivers competing, then you look at this series that he leads and it's more through consistency than being the fastest driver.

But then I look more closely and he's a rookie against many drivers that are not and I would say he is probably not in the best team, M2 competition has dominated the series in the past 2 seasons with their drivers finishing 1-2 in the competition and it's noticeable that M2 drivers qualified on the front row in both qualifying sessions, they have both posted a DNF in the 3 races run thus far hence Verschoor leads the series.

So he's not been gifted an easy ride and in the first competitive series he's really been involved in it will be interesting to see how things pan out.

Haas F1 have announced that Santino Ferrucci will be retained for 2017. He recently tested for DAMS and Trident at Yas Marina last December. But it is not sure which GP3 team will land. It is also undetermined if he will receive FP1s this 2017.

Very indeed. Another case like Verschoor is Brazilian-born US driver Bruno Carneiro who dominated the entire China Formula 4 series making the podium 14 out of 15 events he raced - including 8 wins enroute to win the FIA F4 China series title.

He seems to have some serious backing but I'm wondering when he is actually going to deliver some results?

Signing Verhagen was a surprise move. Especially for an American driver. But he did it the old fashioned way after winning the Formula 1600 series in the US. This was a privilege and has earned it. It is great for Red Bull to provide a chance.

He is also the recipient of the Road Racing Drivers Club's Mark Donahue Award who will receive this upcoming Rolex 24 Hours of Daytona.

2 wins and a second for Verschoor this weekend. Like last weekend, very impressive on a track unknown to him.

However due to the points distribution rewarding consistency over outright results, it all remains fairly close.

I followed the third race on live timing, the race must have been either wet of just damp because the lap times were just over a minute, Verschoor started 5th but was up to second on the opening lap, he took a couple of laps to settle in whilst the leader Randle built a lead of 1.5 seconds and was also being put under pressure from Habsburg.

Then Verschoor upped his pace and started closing in on Randle, then on lap 6 it appeared that both Randle and Habsburg must have had spins, Randle dropped a few places whilst Habsburg rejoined at the back of the field.

Verschoor then coasted to an easy 10 second + win, what I've noticed about him is that he's good in the wet which is a good sign, his first win was after Randle was penalised 10 seconds for jumping the start but unlike the first w/e when he scored the most points through consistency this time he looked more like a class act.
