      5. What will be the biggest political story? – Drivers strike mid seaon over the DRS

      They might threaten it, but I doubt the FIA would keep the rule and see only half of the field race. The FIA don’t even seem to be very proud of it themselves. If it’s not welcome, I can expect to see the FIA dropping the rule almost immediately.

      I think there should have been a question about who will come up with the best/most copied innovation.

    • Almost all the answers are good. but alonso will win monaco and not hamilton but karthykian will be the first retirement.the second will be liuzzi

    • TommyB (@tommyb89) said on 22nd March 2011, 12:54

      The Horse Whisperer is the official Ferrari blog.

      Last year they ranted and moaned a lot about Valencia penalties and criticism from Niki Lauda.

    • Poul said on 22nd March 2011, 14:20

      It’a the site where the main goal is to flame, criticize and basically bitch about everything but Ferrari. On a “normal” fan site (like here) we discuss details of various aspects of the sport and since we have a lot of McLaren fans we talk about the current issues and how things might pan out. On the Horse Whisperer right now the main topic seems to be how bad everyone HOPES that it will go for McLaren. It’s not about how to get a pace-edge over Red Bull or if Alonso’s experience can outsmart Vettel as apparently the only real importance is that McLaren fails!

      • bananarama said on 22nd March 2011, 16:04

        On the other hand, for some people the only purpose of this site seems to be bitching about everything related to Ferrari …..

    • As much as I’d love to see Fisichella given another shot in the Ferrari, I can’t see them replacing Massa with him mid-season. Can you explain why you think they will?

      If Massa is replaced, surely it will be by someone with more recent experience.

      • ed24f1 (@ed24f1) said on 22nd March 2011, 13:58

        Why do you want to see Fisichella in the Ferrari again?

        He was worse than Badoer in 2009 in my opinion if you consider all the circumstances.

        • I agree that he was worse than Badoer – but I think the 2009 Ferrari did not flatter either of them. Fisichella was one of my favourite drivers in the Benetton and Jordan days and I would love to see him doing a few more races.

    • Babis1980 said on 22nd March 2011, 14:37

      If for some mysterious reason Ferrari had to replace Massa it would be only with Hamilton (in case McLaren isn’t fast enough for Lewis). Don’t forget they paid $$ million to Kimi just to sit out in 2010.

      • I can’t see Hamilton going to Ferrari, and certainly not mid-season, even if the McLaren is a tractor.

        • Scribe (@scribe) said on 22nd March 2011, 16:42

          I’m suprised none of the comments under this posts picked up on Vettle failing a drug test thingy.
          Now that would be a suprise, an not really a pleasant one, though we’d loose a very boring talent.

          • Ben N said on 22nd March 2011, 19:48

            Haha, I completely missed that! I wouldn’t call Vettel boring – on the contrary, his interesting take on overtaking made many talking points last year!

          • He drives a fast car quickly. He occasionaly crashes when he attempts anything unusual. The only time Vettle has actually excited me was his first race win. Since then every race win he’s got has been exactly the same.

      • Tom M in Australia said on 22nd March 2011, 19:51

        Alonso and Hamilton in the same team… I think that could work!

      “The Horse Whisperer” is Ferrari’s unofficial blog. It’s meant to be a satirical jab at the sport, and the current issues affecting it. What it’s really being used for is an outlet for Ferrari to complain about things they can’t be seen to be complaining about.
