Default Kimi to replace Michael!

That and Rossi to be an F1 driver....I think I need to get out of my house and find out if I'm still on Earth and in 2005!

Bernie Ecclestone has been known to say quite a lot of things
so I won't trust him.
Also Kimi joining Ferrari will only depend on how good Ferrari is next year

Man Bernie is getting crazy! I think its time he retires and gives Kimi to do the job for him! Kimi would never go to Ferrari! Specially the way they are performing! Also Ron Loves him too much to let him go! LOL

Kimi joining Ferrari could be real. The Sunday Mirror reports that Ferrari will pay 22 million for Raikkonen’s services when his present McLaren contract expires at the end of next season and also said that he's already signed the contract. So Ferrari may have Kimi and Rossi in 2007.

I think its almost sure to happen as Michael is retiring after 2006 and Ferrari don't have any other choice and they consider Kimi as perfect driver for them. Also Kimi is just not happy with Mclaren anymore.

there are many sides to it

all the ferrari staff has contract till 2006 (MS, Todt, Ross Brown)
Kimi wants to win championship & this season those engines have let him down
also recently Ron Dennis had sent Kimi letter warning about his drunk nights
so all might not be well at McLaren, but I still stand by my statement
Kimi leaving McLaren will depend only on how good Ferrari is next season

Where is Michael Magic without a fast car this year Michael is a good driver but so are many others. He just had a fast car all these years!
I am sure Kimi and other drivers would have done the same given the car was competitive!
