uhm yeah well..sortoff... you're basically anti-Alonso, at the cost of a team you admired. Do realise it's your ex fav driver MS who has whispered into Domenicalli's ear about driver selection, in my view he has influenced the decision greatly, so much he has embarrassed my fav driver.

Justice must prevail, somehow, someway, and it would mean a great deal if what you mention above becomes true....

Nope! I am not anti Alonso either. I do think he is among the top F1 drivers, if not the best. I have just decided that next year, I will support Kimi and his team over any other driver and team. I always admired Kimi's attitude and speed since his Mclaren days. He became my No.1 F1 driver when he joined Ferrari. So until I chose another F1 driver over Kimi, he will get all my support! Fans can be very fickle! :-P

Another a related note, how about this rumour? Kimi to Redbull?

http://formula-1.updatesport.com/news/article/1254905040/formula_one/F1gossip/Raikkonen-in-talks-with-Red-Bull/view.html

Oct.7 (GMM) As expected, the confirmation of Fernando Alonso's move to Ferrari turned the key to kick-starting the 2010 driver market.

Much of the specialist formula one media waited in vain throughout Tuesday for the announcement of Robert Kubica's move to Renault, but the French daily L'Equipe reports that the deal will actually be unveiled on Wednesday.

The hottest new rumour is that McLaren and Toyota are not alone in pushing for Kimi Raikkonen. Germany's Sport Bild reports contact between the Finn's management and Red Bull Racing, despite the fact that Mark Webber was recently put under contract for the 2010 season.

Said Raikkonen's manager Steve Robertson: "We are negotiating even with teams that everybody thinks have no vacancies."

:clap3:

Kimi and Vettel in a fast Redbull sounds like fun!

Probably you have developed that ability but in my personal experience I can tell you that I enjoy more a race/sport when I have a favorite driver/team and that doesn't stop me from enjoying what the rest are doing, I just post how much I enjoyed the Alonso/Webber battle in Bahrein 2004 and I really enjoy watching Hamilton doing things that you are not expecting specially in the wet but at least in my case, I need to have a favorite driver to get the most out of the race and I also need Alonso to loose in case my driver is out of the race.

understood and agreed.

I guess if would consider myself a fan of anyone it would probably be Adrian Newey.

For me - he trumps all those ego centric driver babies any day.

Hmm, indeed, that has really thrown a curve ball in the works as everyone was thinking it was only a matter of time the McLaren/Kimi line-up was announced. But it throws up a load more questions:

Who will be in the second seat at McLaren?

Who will be in the second seat at Renault?

If Glock goes to Renault and Trulli to Lotus, what drivers does that leave Toyota?

Where does Webber go?

Who'll be in at Williams alongside Hulkenberg (if, of course, he is confirmed)?

This silly season just gets sillier.

I'd actually really like to see Allan have another go in F1. I'm sure he'd be near the top of their list if Audi DID ever enter F1.

I think him and Da Matta could do bettet with another team.

I'm unsure as to whether Da Matta would be able to do any better second time round. He's still recovering from those awful head injuries he suffered when testing a Champ Car remember?

McNish and Da Matta are both way too old, and the latter is basically retired. McNish is obviously a very good driver, but he's not going to be any better at F1 at age 41. A prototype laps about 12 seconds a lap slower than a Formula 1 car at Silverstone; compared to a POS IndyCar, they're a few tenths a lap off. I think he should stay where he is.

Not like it matters since neither driver is ever planning on coming back.

True, but who said age matters? Schumi wants to come back, JV wants to come back, Wurz probably is coming back, Sebastian Loeb wants a go, and neither of them are spring chickens really.

I will.

George will.

Dale Jr and his cousin/wife.

Back to Australia to ride a bicycle over the winter, and then back in a Red Bull by spring.

Rukki Kovachello.

Sakon Yamamoto.

He wasn't bad. Bring him back.

True, but who said age matters? Schumi wants to come back, JV wants to come back, Wurz probably is coming back, Sebastian Loeb wants a go, and neither of them are spring chickens really.

Just cuz they want to come back doesn't mean they'll be any good. I have a feeling there's more the Schumi story than a nagging injury; I think he realized he just wasn't as quick as he used to be. He lost to Carl Edwards in the RoC in the semi-finals; the same Carl Edwards who binned it on the parade lap in a Daytona Prototurtle race at Montr

Yes, I remember, the one with the reindeer but he is already making his way back to racing again.

Sakon Yamamoto.

Agreed

Thta's right, as we can see they have pleny of option for 2010 maybe JV will be with them, he just want to come back to F1 no matter what team he is driving for.

Alonso actually had 2 fast teammates. Trulli was one of them. Unfortunately he disobeyed orders(his spat with Renault was well-kown) and he got fired. If you ask me, they simply did'nt like him being faster.

And lets not forget that neither Trulli in 2004 nor Hamilton in 2007 actually beat Alonso in those championships.

Hell was it not for Alonso's joke of a penalty in 2007 Alonso would have been champion;)

Even with that penalty Alonso would have been champion if McLaren/Dennis/Dad/Hamilton had not played dirty, dirty, dirty.

here we go again, LH defeated Alonso as much as Alonso won the two WDC if Alonso can be called WDC them LH have more reasons to be considered the winner in that team-mate battle, Alonso was just a lucky winner those years but Hamilton a rookie did a better job than Alonso at Mclaren, Alonso failed in the most important part of his job at that team and was to stamp his authority with on track results over LH but he wanted to do this by forcing the team management to put him in that position, Kimi also failed in this same part at Ferrari and I think that's why Massa is still there and he is heading out, look at the reasons you want but Alonso was shamefully defeated by a rookie prooving that he was just a lucky WDC winner.

and I will tell you that even without that penalty LH would have defeated Alonso, had the team supported both drivers equaly from the beggining, remember Monaco and how they (the team) admited they favoured Alonso over Hamilton in that race? :naughty:

So not contempt with questioning who the champion of 2008 is, we now have to question the actual actual champion of 2007? Well, let's just accept what happened and be gracious in saying the better men won?
