Kimi, Massa, Alonso. Can Ferrari field 3 cars for them?

Kimi, Massa, Alonso and Schumi well Ferrari has its hands full now. What in case Schumi decides to make a comeback now. What will Ferrari do, who will be the lucky pick between kimi, alonso and schumi????

I wish its Kimi out, than Massa..

Massa is an aggressive nature while Kimi takes opportunities. To match Alonso its always Massa.

Ferrari Needs Massa and Alonso to be aggressive to have Ferrari back as No 1

As far as schumi is concerned, who does not want him back. For me it would be Schumi and Alonso.

Cannot rule out the 3rd car in contention

I am not sure whether he can recuperate soon that too after skull fractures. See I am thinking about this after Schumi's decision, F1 is very demanding, I am really not aware whether his body can take it. For Massa its really terrible fate, not for such a talent.

Exactly my point too. Massa might be very eager to come back but would he be fit enough to compete in the races? Would his reflexes be sharp enough after the accident? We all know that they're all extremely fit but we really don't know what damage has been done to his brain & his eyesight until he gets into an F1 car & drives around.

I doubt if Fisi will be retained beyond this year. For one, he's not as fast as Alonso or Kimi as seen in the past. One swallow does not make a summer and the win last week was just one swallow, wasn't it? Heck, even Sutil has shown more promise at times but he has been pretty unlucky. Alonso's thrashed Fisi when they were teammates and so Ferrari should be in no doubt as to who they really want. Personally, I think Ferrari are making a bit of a mistake. I'm sure Alonso would have happily cut his Renault contract and gone to Ferrari had they asked him to.

May be Alonso is not going to Ferrari for next season after all. Usually Ferrari make their next season lineup announcement at Monza. But this year, i doubt it will happen given Massa's condition. There is no guarantee that he will be fit for next season. So may be they are just delaying it to see how things unfold.

Fisci would be reserve/test driver for Ferrari F1 2010 session.

I think 2010 line up is looking very complicated.
  • Kimi replacing Rubino at Brawn GP
  • Rosberg replacing Hekki at Mclaren
  • Alonso replacing Kimi at Ferrari
  • Nick/Robert to take Alonso's seat at renault
I free seat at Force India, 6 seats with the 3 new teams... lots of chances.
Geek read somewhere Jacques Villeneuve hanging around .. God know now what ?

Wow !

And in all probability, USF1 will run at the back of the grid for the next five years. Not unlike Super Aguri with their joke of a team.
