    Is it true alonso driving for ferrari 2008,if so where is massa going?

  2. Hamilton fan said on 24th September 2007, 12:06

    i read yesterday in the nwes of the world that alonso was going to move to ferrari for 20 million dollars a year. I dont see why he would do this, hes been complaining all year about not getting number 1 status at maclaren, ferrari wouldnt give it to him when theyre paying kimi raikkonen 25 million dollars a year, just tabloid rubbish i think

  3. I think if Fernando went to Ferrari – it would make life very interesting, rumours have it that FM (Massa) was spotted in the Toyota Garage at Spa – so they are saying that he may well join Toyota and that Ralph may not drive next year… as he has not performed this year. Jarno has been confirmed for Toyota already. There is also speculation that Jenson might try get into the opening at McLaren – I don’t think he will be accepted. (Maybe as a test driver!! LOL!!)

    alonso for ferrari? i spoke to ron dennis yesterday. he said its true. a new driver name nashmin will replace him next season. thank god. we get to see a new hamilton again.

  5. does anyone know where fisi could move to ive heard that renault are going to drop him but i dont know where he could move to?

  6. georges said on 22nd October 2007, 19:18

    can u tell me where ralph is going?? any news? what are the news for michael?

  7. THE ACER said on 11th November 2007, 1:47

    Ferrari’s drives have confirmed contracts for 2008 – there is no way alonso is going to ferrari. Its about 90% sure he is going back to renalt. Im wondering who Mclearn will take for there 2nd driver? Anyone know? I think they will take Pero De La Rosa.

  8. Clover said on 20th November 2007, 17:13

    toyota signing glock. what a wast of time!!! i saw him in gp2 last year. he was rubbish. fisi leaving must mean alonso going bk 2 renault. where will fisi go???
    who is driving 4 prodrive?? is it dela rosa and paffet???

  9. nikki lauda said on 3rd December 2007, 4:56

    massa and raikkonen have been confirmed already, pay attention.

  10. button is on his way to mc claren

    why is everyone kissing loser hammilton
    he blew it ,

  11. f2019 said on 9th December 2007, 9:56

    Button to Mc Laren?
    is it confirmed?

    hey,what about bourdais?
    what`s newa bout him?

  12. Keith Collantine (@keithcollantine) said on 9th December 2007, 10:14

    No it’s not confirmed and I don’t think it’s likely at all.

  13. Burnin' Rubber said on 11th December 2007, 11:04

    Button to Mclaren, at least Hamilton wouldn’t have any competition. They should use Pedro or Kubica they are the best options, unless kubica resigns at BMW. I heard that Ralph is going to be sweeping the pits shame Rubens doesn’t join him. give some drivers a chance!

    Nelson for Champion 2008!

  14. Keith Collantine (@keithcollantine) said on 11th December 2007, 18:58

    I just want to point out (because I think the person in comment 11 was misled) there has been no serious suggestion that Jenson Button is going to go to McLaren. I think some members of the British press have wishfully suggested it, but no more.

  15. “he blew it”
    what the hell, how!!

  16. Burnin' Rubber said on 13th December 2007, 12:34

    I agree with Scott, Blew it! I don’t think so, even if he never drives an F1 car again he would be well remembered for creating one of the best seasons for many years.

    I think Hamilton seems to be like Marmite, some people love him and some don’t.But all would agree he sure can drive!

  17. Most likely Kovalainen or Dela rosa will be driving for Mclaren. I don’t see why would mclaren even try to get any other driver at this point. Kovalainen is one of the fastest drivers at the moment and Dela Rosa would keep the spanish sponsor happy.

  18. i still reckon that if you put button in a competitive car like mclaren he would kick ass and surprise a few

  19. Burnin Rubber said on 17th December 2007, 17:28

    Maybe button would suprise us in a good car, what or who would he blame then? How has Rubens kept a drive for so long? does he driver for free?

  20. f2019 said on 20th December 2007, 3:42

    well, honda has brawn now, maybe because of that button wanna join honda again.

    kovalainen in mclaren? this gonna be a great season,,
