That's indeed great news if it turns out to be true..What a contest will we have on cards with Kimi and Alonso on the scarlet red..vying for the top spot
:-)...Guess we might not be missing Schumi too much

I wish Ron announces that he has sacked Alonso the minute the Brazilian GP is over. Alonso can go where ever he wants Ferrari or Renault or Spyker... (Narain and Alonso... super combo)

McLaren should seriously rope in Nico... that kid has talent and if McLaren can sign him, it will be awesome! Lewis and Nico will be a great team!

Another rumor doing rounds is that if Alonso leaves McLaren, he will be replaced by Nick Hiedfeld in the McLaren. Nick has always been a McLaren but more of Mercedes protégé, and there is no denying that he is seriously quick, too quick.
Doesn’t have too much of a charisma like Nico but I think McLaren will be well off with Lewis in one car and Nick in another, atleast that will save them the intra team battles.

Heidfeld has always been one of F1's most underrated drivers.
Would be nice to see him in a champioship material car, provided McLaren arent disqualified next season.

But the only way, Massa is moving to Toyota is if Jean Todt leaves Ferrari and that aint gonna happen
Personally i wish Ross Brawn would be back at the helm of affairs next season

There are strong rumors that Todt will be out next year making way for Brawn.
I think the only drivers who are capable of replacing Alons are Nick and Rosberg.

But why ??? , my management sense doesen't allow me to discard a superb driver (massa )who is costing me way less than a a controversial ex-wc who could costs me close to 10-15 m more in driver fee and an additional 20m approx for contract buyout from mclaren , what am i trying to achieve here ?

Sponsors ? - ferrai has enough
Talent ? - ferrari has enough (kimi+massa - any team would die for the combo)
Controversy ? - ferrari has enough
offtrack antics ? - maybe yes

Does anybody see any reason for ferrari to go for fonso ? (did see fonso and kimi paly paly in spa ..fishy ? )

Maybe they are missing a character... maybe they need someone who is a WC and is ruthless (like schumi?) and not a boy racer or a mumbler!

Massa doesnot have the touch of a world champion, look at Barichelo he drove so many years in Ferrari but he too didnot have a touch of a world champion or maybe Schumi never gave him the chance.

Barichelos contract read Driver number 2

Yeap! CONTRACTUALLY Rubens had no chance of winning (the WDC) when he was driving for Ferrari.
Austria 2002 was a good example of that.

If Alonso and Kimi are together in Ferrari, Im sure that will be a recipe for disaster. IMO Alonso should go to Renault, Well finally get to see a Renault vs Mclaren vs Ferrari more often.

May be Fernando's decision to go to where will depend on whether he wins the WDC this year or not!

His best racing days were his rookie years in the CART series. He had flashes of brilliance after that, but never enough for anyone to take him seriously.
but he did win one NASCAR race...

Narian might(high probability) land himself the drive at Spyker (or whatever it is called next year). But the future drives would be going Karuns way with one year of testing to warm him up.
