Alonso with Ferrari in 2010... Y or N?

As far as speculation goes, it looks like Kimi will be leaving to be a rally driver and Alonso is his believed replacement.

Further evidence at the pairing:

Quote:
Comments made by Felipe Massa's father will only intensify speculation that the Brazilian will be paired with Fernando Alonso at Ferrari next year.

Authoritative media sources are claiming that Spaniard Alonso, reportedly to replace Kimi Raikkonen, has now inked a proper contract with the Italian marque to begin in 2010.

Massa's father Luiz Antonio has told Spanish radio Onda Cero that Alonso is a "great driver" who would make a good teammate for his son, who is currently recovering from head injuries sustained at the Hungarian grand prix last month.

"Felipe has already had a great driver as a teammate in Michael Schumacher. With Kimi he has always had a good relationship.

"He is a tough teammate who motivated him and for sure if Fernando is with Felipe next year it will be a very good rivalry as much for all the fans as for Felipe and Fernando," Massa Snr added.

I'll be honest. I'd like to see him there. He is the best driver on the grid IMO and my personal favorite. I think his skill far exceeds his Renault. He deserves a drive in a car that he could really pace well. He will definitely be a title contender next season if he is with the Scuderia.

With Ferrari set to have their annual event in Spain - I think that speaks a ton about who their drivers will be. The biggest thing I see still up in the air is his teammate. With Massa's accident; they won't want to push aside Kimi so fast - just incase Massa can't race again.

Either way, I do think they're giving up the easiest pair of drivers to manage. Alonso requires a lot more attention then Kimi or Felipe.

Ferrari also should be a lot better, since they stopped development on the F60 and devoted their time to next year (the exact opposite of last year). Alonso in a great car should realy be something to watch.

It would be nice to watch Alonso in the Ferrari, Lewis in the mclaren and Vettel in the Red Bull all competing in competitive cars... I don't think the brawns will be any good next year, they just don't have the budget and resources to remain fast with the rules not changing much

Rosberg or Kubica are gonna be a Mercedes driver. Or Kubica at Williams or maybe just maybe Ferrari.

I think we'll see Rosberg or Heidfeld at McLaren. They want a German driver, and let's face it, they need a #2 to Hamilton.

Kubica will probably go to Renault or Williams.

I've never really pictured him at Renault, but I think it can work.
