Yeah, I know it sounds weird, but wouldn't Mercedes-Benz like a German driver at McLaren ?

And then of course we have to consider Spyker, would Narain or Karan figure in their driver line-up ?
Fisi is moving to Williams to replace Nico Rosberg who is headed to Mc Laren!

Alonso aint going nowhere. No one has the monies to buy out his contract from McLaren and Macaa will not want a driver of his caliber to go to a rival, even if he is a pain to hang on to.

Why on earth does Fonso behave like such a loser ? Why does he need to whine so much, why can't he just let his skills do the talking instead ?

Easier said than done, especially when Alonso has to face the tune of a British driver in a British team.

Let alone the politics and everything... Hamilton deserves the title... He has dragged it from under Alonso's nose.. It is no joke to finish on podium for more than half races..

McLaren should be worried only if he goes to Ferrari. Otherwise, there is not much he can do in a slow car like TOyota or Renault.

If they mutually agree, then he will go for free, no need to be bought out. Right now, Ron Dennis will be happy to let him go for free. He has a winning car and a winning driver and Alonso is nothing but pain.

If this were true then its likely that Flav's got his boy back. Which is good for next season. Hamilton, Kimi, Alonso in different cars with an ever improving BMW and a lil brazilian for company. Bring on 2008!
