I think Roseberg is signed for a few years with Mercedes. One of the reasons Ferrari is said to be looking at Kubica, since he seems to be their only option. Button and Hamilton are also signed. Not sure what the deal with Webber is, but I don't think he wants to go anywhere after RBR. Schumi is too old. And then a bunch of rookies which aren't ready yet.
Both Mercedes are confirmed.
This is a good list.
I think Diresta is more of a Mercedes backed driver. He probably has a shot with them. Sutil...just meh. He hasn't done much I think. Perez and Kobayashi still seem young. And Glock had his shot a few times, as much as I like him. The Hulk only has one season under his belt.

Supoposedly the Force India driver lineup is coming any minute.
Hulk and Diresta? Sutil out?
If so, I hope they can pick up the pace a bit. Hulk and Diresta is a fast combo.
