And yet, Alonso says he wants to extend his contract: Fernando Alonso wants to extend Ferrari stay

What is Red Bool without Newey? No one can answer that. Big gamble
Talk about my worst nightmare.......Ferrari starts winning and I have to cheer for finger boy? Ugh.....
Now if they start winning and Kimi was the winner......
Yeah, I think Alonso's head would explode if Seb did that. I don't know how it wouldn't.
My take on next season.
Merc - will still be the dominate force. They can only improve from here.
RB - Newey is doing next year's car, so it will be great, even better than this year and Renault will be able to get more power out of their power unit, so they will be very competitive and probably trade wins with Merc throughout the year and consistently be on the podium.
Ferrari - they will make improvements, especially in the power unit and hopefully the ERS which will bring them closer and give them the chance to grab some podiums and hopefully luck out with a few wins, but unfortunately still third best.
I still don't think McLaren will be a threat. Williams and Force India will be more of the same. However, I don't think Williams will have as much success as this year, because RB and Ferrari will "hopefully" have the power to compete with the Merc units.
So, as an Alonso fan, yes, a move to RB would be smart and give him a better chance of success. I just don't see Ferrari making a MASSIVE recovery by next season. I would love to be wrong on this, but they just haven't shown that ability.
As a Ferrari fan, HELL NO! We need Alonso big time to squeeze the best possible result out of an inferior car.
