Kimi is to move to McLaren

This could be interesting for 2010. Though I can see why as Ferrari neglected Kimi this past two seasons in favor for Masa and then relied on him for wins after Massa has been taken out. I hope there wont be any issue like two yrs ago with Hamilton and Alonso. Good combo for McLaren next yr if it happened.

Didnt Kimi already drive for Mclaren? I though he quit F1 to do WRCC.

Hrm...I liked him at Ferrari but I guess I'll like him back with McLaren!

He is a great driver...as for his ability to woo over the press...something may be lacking (unless it is all a pseudo Mika Hakkinen act)

I had a feeling that Kimi wasn't going to be with Ferrari next year. I think he's a very talented driver but somehow I never warmed up to him enough to call myself a fan.

Lewis and Kimi for 2010 at McLaren...that could be a very interesting in-house rivalry to watch

More interesting than Alonso-Massa?

I believe so...I can see Alonso and Massa getting along pretty well and pushing each other hard, but I just get the feeling that Lewis and Kimi will just want to rip each other's heads off, not in a good way.

Totally disagree, the most "conflicting" personality appears to be Alonso; where ever he has been or goes he always causes huge problems with teammates, managers, you name it. He is a spoiled brat! Great driver indeed but a very difficult guy. Kimi? He´s probably the least conflicting of them all (i.g., Alonso, Hamilton, Massa, Kimi).

Now, Hamilton and Kimi vs. Masa and Alonso???? McLaren vs. Ferrari!! Wow!!!!!!! We´re in for a treat next year for sure.

I just hope that Kimi will be more notivated next yr at McLaren then his current mood at Ferrari. He is a great driver when motivated but not so good when he is not all there.

Yes, well, hard to say whether he is just erratic or unmotivated. He is the "iceman", very hard to read.

Or he just doesn't care and go to "take a shit" then pick up his magnum and a can of coke...

Hope McLaren catering has Magnum and coca-cola...

Spanish radio station Cadena SER has reported that Fernando Alonso's move to Ferrari will finally be official on Thursday (Oct. 1st.). Alonso has been tipped for a five-year deal at an estimated worth of €25m (approx. $36.5m) per season.

I have to agree with the iceman comment - and that is why I like him. He is not a drama queen - he is a professional. He does his job and gets on with his life

If Kimi had a reliable McLaren and a little luck before he may be a two time champion.

Hahaha! I think that sums Kimi up very well. I´m going to love Kimi/Hamilton combo at McLaren.
