    The silly season gets sillier, there are reports that kimi has been offered a new deal by Ferrari which is “more lucrative” than the $15 million offer made by RBR. This is hotting up, there are all sorts of potential partnerships now looking possible ALO-VET, RAI-VET, ALO-RAI. Next we’re going to hear williams have offered Hamilton a deal.

    This is totally ridiculous… You honestly think Ferrari would want Kimi back? Geeez… that would mean that they would have to carry an extra freezer for his icescream. I don´t see this happening ever.

    Germany’s Bild newspaper is the main source claiming this, its not 100% reliable but if i remeber correctly, they were the first ones to claim the Paddy Lowe to Mercedes move.

    Wondered how serious the rumours were, saw someone had linked to ‘Bleacher Report’, moved on.

    Bild started the rumour. How much Ferrari must be regretting firing Raikkonen instead of Massa back then…

    If it’s originally from BILD, there is a good chance it’s true.

    Absolutely remarkable rumour. I know it’s silly season, but I’m sure the levels of silliness have never been so high. To me, this rumour is more realistic than the Alonso to Red Bull, but still it is astounding.

    With all of these weird rumours popping up all of a sudden, I suspect that one of the teams is behind it and they’re looking to make a fairly audacious play for a driver, but are deliberately muddying the waters to keep their intentions secret for the time being.

    I suspect it’s Ferrari. Massa is under-performing (again), and they really got caught out by the advent of driver development programmes. They need an audacious move, so it makes sense for them to stall for time until they are ready to show their hand.
