They say the cars this year wont be quite as fast at Monza as in some past years, but to me, that really only affects people that are actually at the track. On tv you just dont get the sensation of the insane speed the cars are travelling at.

On tv IMHO good racing between cars is more important than top speed.

never take life seriously

30kph faster than last year. But, not as fast as JPM's record.

Fred really knows how to keep the speculation going:

Translation: Ferrari better up their game and do it quickly, or I am outta here. And for those that may want to take me in, it is going to cost you boys a yacht full of Euros.

I feel for him really. He's not getting any younger. If something doesn't happen soon he'll go down in history as the best driver ever to win only 2 WDC. Not the legacy he's hoping for I'm sure.

I think I heard it will cost a team $40,000,000 to buy Alonso out of his contract. Is that right?

McLaren is a mess, Williams can't afford him, and I don't see Red Bull shelling out huge bucks to replace Seb with him. Now Mercedes... maybe they figure their drivers cannot work together anymore. Alonso goes to Merc, and Rosberg to Ferrari, or Hamilton back to McLaren??

If Hamilton leaves Merc, I see him back at McLaren. I understand that they have never emptied the toys out of his crib when he left, so it will be an easy move. And BTW, Honda will be the equal of Merc next year….says so right here:

http://en.espnf1.com/f1/motorsport/story/173259.html

If Hamilton does not leave and Merc does decide that it would be fun to again have two drivers fighting for a WDC, then Fred's play will likely probably be to McLaren.

At that point, Vettel may finally put on the red overalls that he had tailored a few seasons ago. After all, it would be hard to imagine he could suck worse in the red car than he did this year in the RB.

Or maybe Hamilton DOES leave to go back to McLaren. I bet the brass at MB get wood thinking of a team with one and one half German drivers…Vettel/Rosberg, anyone?

That would close the door at McLaren for Fred as I don't think we will ever see a Hamilton/Alonso Part Deux.

So, Fred to RB? I don't know. As I have said many times before, I don't think that there is a driver on the grid that would like to have my boy Ricciardo as a teammate given how he has wiped the floor with Finger Boy.

I will say this though. I can't remember having this much fun speculating on potential driver moves.
