The most important thing to consider is Alonso, he’s undisputed no.1 at the mo. Although Ferrari have shown they’ll back whoever looks like winning the championship, the driver in question has to be on Ferrari’s side a known quantity in the Barrichello mould, and on the drivers side either desperate or obnoxiously self confident/mega gifted.
Kubica, weal he’s better than Massa, an I don’t know that he’ll suffer like Massa who always was a confidence driver, but he may well not be the same when he returns. But Ferrari can’t take two top dogs, the modern incarnation just isn’t set up to take it.
Webber, old, grouchy, rebellious, possibly lost it.
Sutil. I can’t help but feel that the moment has passed, he should of mooved up last year, his career has stalled somewhat.
Di Resta. Probably too young, we’ll have to see how he does, Brits don’t tend to be in the thrall of Ferrari like the others, you get the feeling he wants to be no 1.
Rosberg, wants to be top dog, probably doesn’t back himself to take Alonso.
Personally, I think all paths lead to Timo Glock, he must be miserable at Virgin, he’s completely wasted at Virgin, he could well be better than Massa, he’s young and experianced.
Don’t think anyone else is available or has the class.
