The roster for the 2007 Formula One season has been released by F1's international governing body, the FIA (Federation International d'Automobile). Most of the information was already known, but even after it's all been confirmed, there remain a host of question marks.

Tobacco sponsorship is on its way out, and Honda has yet to name a replacement for its outgoing title sponsor Lucky Strike. Honda's kid-sister team Super Aguri has also listed a "TBA" along with their official title of "Super Aguri F1 Team", indicating they're still searching for a title sponsor as well.

Most of the teams have confirmed their drivers' roster for next year, except for Red Bull's second team, Scuderia Toro Rosso. Although team principal Gerhard Berger has indicated that American driver Scott Speed and Italian pilot Tonio Liuzzi will both stay with the team next year, the STR submission left "TBA"s for their drivers.

Spyker, the Dutch company that has taken over the old Jordan team from Midland, has only confirmed one driver, Christijan Albers, leaving a TBA for the second. An interesting report surfaced suggesting that Spyker tried to steal GP2 champ Lewis Hamilton with an enticing long-term $10 million contract. Goes to show Spyker are serious about moving the team up-field, but we think Hamilton got a better deal with his career patrons at McLaren.

Follow the jump for the full, confirmed 2007 roster.

      Hmmm...I've been a big fan of Kimi for years, but at the same time I've rooted against the prancing pony. Talk about conflict. Maybe I'll have to start rooting for A.D. It's good to see him in a non-testing roll finally. Too bad it's for Super B.F.F.

      I think Kovalained has a great shot this season, he's an awesome driver will a ton of skill. Otherwise look out for Raikkonen.

      I'm got the opposite problem. I've rooted for Ferrari for years, but can't stand Kimi and had to stop cheering on Barichello for going to a team like Honda.

      Now, I think I'll primarily root for Kubica and Speed to do well (assuming Speed is back), with Massa and Hamilton as my favorites to win. Then I can only hope the McLaren treats Alonso as well as it treated Raikkonen.

      It's all about Raikkonen with a car that doesn't break ;)
