Winners and Losers After Seat Switches in the 2014 F1 Driver Market

Pastor Maldonado and Sergio Perez, winners or losers in 2014?

Each offseason, the Formula One driver carousel spins. Some drivers get on or off (entering or exiting the sport), and some just change horses.

This year, in particular, it seems like many drivers have just traded places. In the span of little more than a year, Nico Hulkenberg has gone from Force India to Sauber and back again. In the same time frame, Sergio Perez has been signed and dumped by McLaren, only to be picked up by Force India.

Meanwhile, when Kimi Raikkonen signed a deal to return to Ferrari, it bumped Felipe Massa to Williams and allowed Pastor Maldonado to slide into Raikkonen's old seat at Lotus.

Now, with only seats at perennial back-markers Caterham and Marussia remaining, the carousel is slowing down. As such, it seems an appropriate time to look at the winners and losers from the seat switches in the 2014 driver market.
