Yes, Massa has confirmed he is out after this year! Nice guy but just not fast enough.

Massa should have been gone years ago. Not sure what he brought to the table.

But what do I know.

Alonso and Hamilton couldn't get along and I'll be surprised if Alonso and Kimi can. I think Kimi will do fine because he doesn't GAF about team orders or what the other guy is doing. But Alonso can easily get his nose bent out of shape if he's not the Alpha Dog.

Now watch Massa win a bunch of races before the end of the season.

Don't know if you guys remember, but in 2009 Massa was faster than Kimi, and only a few points behind Hamilton from winning the Driver's Championship.

He's not slow in my book, and a super nice guy.

If only Webbo stuck around for another season, he'd be jumping in a Ferrari

When its wet, watch out for Massa. Only a matter of time before he exits the track surface.

Massa came so close to winning the Driver's Championship in '08. It took Hamilton making a pass on another car in the last corner of the last lap of the Brazilian GP (the last race of the season) to finish 5th and win the Championship by 1 point.
Massa was super exciting to watch on his way up - With Sauber he continually would fight his way through the second tier cars making exciting passes in an era of no DRS. Unfortunately that form and speed was somehow lost with his head injury.

I think The Hulk will end up with Ferrari. Alonso would work with Kimi.

And the word is finally out. Kimi agrees to a 2 year deal with Ferrari.

So who is taking Kimi's Lotus seat? Hulk?


Off-topic: Who's looking forward to the movie Rush?

I imagine Hulk will go Lotus, but the issues that Lotus is having this year might make it difficult to attract him.

Looking forward to Alonso, Kimi next year.

Finally a chance to measure Alonso's real capabilities. Years and years of mediocre teammates probably made him a little rusty. Who remembers Piquet Jr, Fisichella, et al? The only time he faced a real teammate, a rookie Hamilton made him look bad.
Let's see what happens...

Not yet, the most recent one was in the mid-80's through late 90's when McLaren and Williams dominated for two decades.
Which the team didn't win WCC since 1984 through 1998, and no WDC from 1980 all the way to 1999.

Huh? That's a 2 time world champ that beat Schumy and the Scuderia at their Zenith. Alonso could die today and his capabilities have been proven.
