Massa bids Ferrari farewell (Ferrari)

“Finally Felipe had an affectionate word for his friend and team-mate Fernando Alonso, joking about the incident in the 2010 German Grand Prix. ‘Thanks also to you Fer, we will meet again on track and this time I will try not to let you through.'”

Brawn excited by ‘extreme’ 2014 rules (Autosport)

“I think it’s going to be a pretty extreme case next year. I’ve been involved in those situations more than once, 1994 was a good example, 2009 was a good example and I’m sure there are ones in between that don’t come to mind!”

Vettel awarded BBC Overseas prize (BBC)

“Sebastian Vettel has been named the BBC Overseas Sports Personality of the Year after winning his fourth successive Formula One world championship.”

  1. Interesting piece in Swiss Blick (in German) about the current state at Sauber. Seems its still quite tight and unclear where the money is going to come from for the next seasons (and it also hints that far less Mexican money was actually received than hoped – or maybe even than promised/agreed?)

  2. While Felipe is a nice guy I fully expect Bottas to beat him just like Alonso has been doing the past 4 years. I would have preferred he called it quits after Brazil rather than try and eek out a few more seasons at Williams as we all now how well that went for Rubens.

  3. Lol at how many people made a blue flag joke. Wasn’t funny the first time.

    Maybe read through the comments before posting a rubbish joke.

  4. well he might have to. when he sees the blue flags being waved for his Sauber

  5. @TimothyKatz

    Have you received your angry letter from him already?

    1. @ardenflo Ha! No, not yet. Maybe there will be a little dig in the next Horse Whisperer’s message; I’d love to be so famous!

  6. Massa should be more worrid about Bottas more than anything.

  7. Seems like I’m practically alone with what I’m about to say, but I’m not ready to discount FM’s extensive experience in F1, so I’m not as convinced as some that he will have a hard time against Bottas. Sure Bottas has some continuity with the team, but I think FM could be looking at this as a fresh start, with fresh new cars and regs, and he’ll be an equal at Williams. I think and hope he will surprise his naysayers with this new opportunity.
