Thumbs down Prancing Kimi ??!!!

Rumours abound that Kimi may move to Ferrari in 2007 ..... Oh god NOOOO !

http://www.f1racing.net/en/news.php?newsID=96184

Although both teams have denied ... but then thats the norm isn't it ?

I'll be one confused F1 nut if that happens .... I mean whom do I root for ?
Kimi - ok , Ferrari - no way ...

Rumours!
Kimi has denied moving to Ferrari. He says he's pretty happy with his current team. Ron Dennis says JPM and Kimi are going to be McLaren men for a long time to come.

I think kimi's decision will depend ferrari's pace next year. If ferrari can match Mclaren, then i wouldn't be surprised to see kimi moving to the Red stable. Must be unbelievably frustrating to have the car give up when you are in the lead. Also by then Schumacher would probably retire, IMO. And maybe stiffer competetion from JPM could also influence Kimi's decision. Having said that, I am sure Ron Dennis would do everything he can to keep kimi at Mclaren. Personally, as a mclaren fan, i want him to stay at Mclaren.

Kimi turning red? Nahh..I don't think he's that stupid!

What on earth would make him think of making the shift? Lets see...
Best car? He's already got that
Team principal's full support? He's got that too.
Long term ccontract? He's got that just waiting for his signature.
Chance to be WC? He's got that with Mclaren.

So why would he even think of going anywhere else? This is just the F1 rumour mill doing it's usual mid-season talk.

Along with the rumor that Kimi might move to Ferrari there was another one that Schumi is moving to Mclaren, which is impossible thing to happen. If Ferrari get back on top next season and Mclaren continue with the same unreliability, then Kimi will surely move to Ferrari as he wants to win the championship. Even Kimi's manager Steve Robertson said that kimi is not happy with the reliability this season.

He is more likely to do it in silver in the near future.

but no one really knows whats gonna happen in 2006....i mean McLaren were the hottest when Mika Hakkinen won the '99 Drivers Championship...but the next year...everything collapsed.
Ferrari is down now...but no one knows, next year they can really launch a bomb of a car....and with MS's skills, they can still regain their lost crown one more time.
i just hope for the best in 2006. i want to see the scarlet red and the silver arrow fight one more time....like the old days...
just btw, anyone remember Spa '99, Mika vs Michael?

What Spa you talking about? '99 Michael was out due to accident. Or are you talking about Spa 2000.
