Alonso Signs Deal With Ferrari?

216 posts in this topic

Alonso signs for Ferrari

The word in the F1 paddock in Monte Carlo is that Fernando Alonso has just inked a deal to drive for Ferrari in 2010.

No confirmation is expected for a year, and there may be denials of any arrangement, as there would obviously be some serious knock-on effects for other parties in the F1 paddock.

It has always been more a matter of "when" more than "if" on all this issue.

I am already looking fro my next favorite driver. Somehow I doubt Piquet Jr will fill this position.

bulls##t. And no I am not in denial, this is just from the most dubious of sources - and comes with a 'word in the paddock' disclaimer.

Fernando Alonso has not signed for Ferrari. Take it from me. I am right far more often than these rubbish websites.

I think it's as good as done Cav, somehow rumours in F1 turn out to be true. Kimi's contract expires end 2009. I'm already looking at another driver to support. I think I will support both Lewis and Massa from then onwards, I've made peace with this decision.

What, like the one about how Michael was retiring in '04? Or how abour DC going to Ferrari? Irvine going to McLaren? Alonso staying at McLaren? Ron going from McLaren? Montoya going to Red Bull? Coca Cola buying Red Bull?

Oh, how fickle.

Kimi going to ferrari, Alonso going to mclaren, the spygate saga, so many others....BIG RUMOURS manifesting as true in the F1 arena

Rumour has a tendency or ability to become true in F1... I believe in this one......you seem to be swaying at Cav side today :D

A rumour I've understood to be true for some time now.

Alonso is quoted as saying he will retire after 3 WDC. He's unlikely to get the third, unless he does go to Ferrari as things stand.

I can believe this. I hope he has Vettel or Kubica alongside, that'll be a lot of fun.

Kimi was shocking today and he is meant to be Michael's heir apparent - The sooner Alonso gets in the ferrari the better IMHO

Kimi has no interest in measuring himself against Michael and why would he? Kimi was poor today but who didn't make an error (ok 2 errors from Kimi).

The only two drivers who didn't make any mistakes that I know of were Sutil and Kubi. The accident was highly unfortunate.

Edit: Alonso's race wasn't exactly perfect either.

:lol: Can't see that happening. Far too evenly matched for Alonso, and Ferrari.

I would love to see the look on your face the day, if it happens, that Alonso does sign for the red team.

Indeed... Look how long the rumblings about Kimi going to Ferrari where going around for. I am not saying Alonso to the red team is a done deal, I would guess it depends on what Kimi does when his contract expires in 2009, but Luca has already expressed his admiration for Alonso and his driving talents, so I believe that its not as impossible as some people make out for Alonso to move to Ferrari.

That's not the issue. The chances are it may happen. The point is, has it happened already? I say, no.

I agree. Until we see it happen, I will say show me the evidence, I merely put it as a point of interest that it would be funny to see the reaction of an anti-alonso bigot like cavallino to Alonso being signed by the red team.

Whatever Shane..

Clearly you have trouble getting your head round the fact there may be more than a single person on this forum that dislikes you. Isnt it about time that you grew up?
