What is this guy like? His dad runs the team?! I cant wait to see Kimi return and break his knuckles.
He doesn't want a competetive teammate like he has Alonso in his first year. He doesn't enjoy getting beaten by his teamate.

I will be looking forward to those Kimi-Lewis battles (rubbing my hands in glee)

Half a year, nine pages and countless arguments later, the purpose of this thread is fulfilled. Alonso to Ferrari then and welcome back to Kimi from McLaren! 2010 is going to be a cracker.

I highly doubt Mclaren would contract both Hamilton and Kimi for next year. Such an arrangement would pose multiple problems for the race outfit :

1. No primary driver unless they believe either of these drivers is less than the other.

2. Impact on Race strategies and pit stop strategies.

3. Peer rivalry could cause rift between support staff of either driver. This is something that happened some time back in Ferrari with Barrichello and Schumacher. Obviously, Barrichello was eventually sidelined by bringing in Massa.

4. Kimi is way more experienced than Lewis and has served more years with McLaren racing but recent turn of events have made Lewis the star of team. How would that pan out in terms of relations between two drivers and as a team.

Personally, All this means more fireworks in the coming season making it all that more exciting.

and I hope I am able to accept Alonso in Ferrari outfit after being a staunch hater of his for spoiling (kinda!) Schumi's last season at Ferrari...

@Akhilesh - Well by that same logic, Ferrari shouldn't be using Alonso and Massa together either. Even point number four fits in. Alonso is more experienced and regarded as better than Massa but recent events have made Massa the darling at Ferrari.

Im not happy at all. Despite knowing that this is gonna happen, I am somehow not reassured by Alonso coming to Ferrari :-(

Hope he Proves me wrong and does well. Im really unhappy at Kimi leaving.

Bye Bye Scuderia Ferrari! Hope to support you in 3 years time once the crybaby has cried enough and left the team!

Go Force India!

Unfortunately, I cannot support McLaren as long as Hamilton is there! If only Hamilton gets kicked out of McLaren! That would make me a proper McLaren supporter!

Time to change my avtar then.... :(

Alonso to ferrari bad move. Raikko to Mclaren bad move.
Alonso moves to a team who so far are heading downwards. Iam not sure about 2011 but for 2010 they look like mid-fielders.
Kimi possibly the worst driver ive seen to date. A x-champion with no value. Mclaren would make a bi mistake to bring him back.

How do you know Ferrari are mid-fielders in 2010? If anything, they will be the team to beat next year. They have focused completely on 2010 development from past few months, unlike other teams.

Huh? He is definitely better than the other two champions in the grid, One who lies and the other one who cheats.

Completely agree with you there...I am myself not very happy to see Alonso in Ferrari outfit. With Massa and Kimi, we had experience with aggression, but alonso and massa are both aggressive and tht would be a problem for ferrari race strategists...

...Anyways, it is just my opinion but you know how they say in hindi, "Ek Myan mein do talwarein nahi rah sakti"

The inevitable happened. Is there any other team who moved a WDC out in the past like Ferrari has done? If these things happening all the while in the background I cant stop appreciate the composure Kimi has maintained and his professionalism in keeping his mouth shut and not uttering a word against Ferrari. True iceman!

Ferrari down down! May be you have reasons (commercial or otherwise) to move out Kimi but the way this has been handled lacks class.

Wish Kimi best of luck with another team hopefully McLaren or Brawn. Wonder how it will turn out with him on a Brawn and the master stroke of Ross behind him! Lewis can keep running 2 cars in McLaren all for himself.
