So what happens to Filipe Massa?
Has he pretty much accepted his fate like Reubens Barrichello? Guess Senna will turn in his grave.

I don't think Massa is in a bad place. After all, he is a Ferrari driver with a 3 year contract!

It will all depend on how he does in the first half of 2008. If he has more points than Kimi, he will have Kimi for a wingman for the rest of the season.

Senna will be proud!!

massa!!!! lets face it guys he is not championship material. agree that he is a fast driver, but he isn't consistent and way too emotional. Modern F1 doesn't suit emotional drivers. it is all brains not heart anymore...

Hope something nice happens next year to see FI in the top 5 in atleast a race. Well dreams apart its going to be a very tough year ahead for them and first they got to get out of the jinx surrounding the car and give some reliable performance and atleast race finishes during the entire season.

How good is Sutil?

With Mr Mallya at the helm, you wont know how our Vijay has got the knack of turning things around.

I think Force India F1 will surely do much better that the earlier team was doing.

But.LONG LIVE MICHAEL SCHUMACHER

I'll have to disagree route666. If that were the case, Kimi or Schumacher should have won in 2006 instead of Alonso! He definitely was the hot-headed Spaniard! We saw the worst of it during last season.

Even though I'm a Kimi fan, I still think that Massa has a real chance to shine provided he takes the initiative early in the season.

This being Formula 1, anything can happen! How many of us really thought Kimi would win the Championship last season? He definitely was the underdog at Interlagos even though, by all accounts, he was the least emotional driver last season. There is a reason he is called The Iceman.

Default Narain is Williams test driver !

It looks like Narain is the second Williams test driver. I don't recall seeing any news regarding this.

Since this information is available on the official formula1 website I think it may be true.
