> F1NEWS> Addax: We hope Piquet rumours aren’t true! THE confusion in Formula 1 over the future of Nelson Piquet at the Renault F1 team has caused widespread debate in the GP2 Series paddock, with talk that early-season GP2 pace-setter Romain Grosjean is due to be his replacement. Grosjean, who has won two races in the GP2 Series in 2009 with Addax, would be a high-profile loss to the championship and to his team, who are aiming to take the championship in their first season under new ownership. Addax, for the moment, are unsure who their driver will be at the Hungarian round in two weeks. “We haven’t heard anything officially, but I hope the rumours aren’t true,”a team source told GPWeek in Germany. Should Grosjean step up to Formula 1 the void at Addax is thought likely to be filled by Renault Development Driver Davide Valsecchi, whose relationship with his under-performing Durango GP2 team is understood to be strained. Another possibility is that Sergio Perez, who raced with Addax in the GP2 Asia Series, might be tempted to move to the team, although his main sponsor Telmex’s title sponsorship of the Arden International squad makes such a move unlikely. The potential for Grosjean to replace Piquet has also opened up the possibility for the Brazilian to make a return to the GP2 Series for his own team, replacing either Alberto Valerio or Roldan Rodriguez, both of whom have recently experienced a major up-turn in competitiveness. 11
