Three new teams are set to appear on the F1 grid in 2010, and with a number of current Formula One drivers nearing the end of their careers, there are more opportunities for aspiring young superstars to get onto the grid than there have been for a long time.

In addition to this, the rise of several prominent junior formula such as GP2, the Renault World Series and this year's new Formula Two championship means that there are plenty of places where Formula One wannabes can demonstrate their talent and, potentially, catch the eye of a team principal or two.

This article highlights ten of the most deserving drivers who could be poised for a break into Formula One in 2010.

In order to be eligible for the list, drivers must not have raced in F1 before, though they could have tested an F1 car at some stage—therefore Giorgio Pantano, for example, is excluded, though he probably wouldn't have made the top ten anyway.
