LMFAO! Nobody new to come in?

Hardly, there are so many feeder drivers and people who are incredibly quick all over the place - Di Resta, Carroll, Pantano, Villeneuve (haha...) to name a few, there's still hundreds of people all around, even more if you're going to look into muppet land where they found Alguesuauri (who looks a bit like simon cowell :)).

I wonder how come he's not suggesting his own lad take the seat... or is that because he knows he isn't all that.

Bourdais, can't win unless he has the best car. Villeneuve, can't win unless he has the best car.
Real DRIVER's win with less than best equipment. What about Catalunya when Schumi won with only ONE gear in his transmission. TALENT. Vettel won with STR when no one else came close. TALENT. Schumi won with V-8 Benettons against the V-10's and V-12's through determination and talent. Talented drivers find a way to win. All the others suffer from "Excusitis".

If they are going for an outsider then Bourdais would be my choice. But I think they will use one of the test drivers. Why waste money bringing some one in to drive a underperforming car ..... use the time to start developement for next year and give Kimi some updates on this years car.

Then KIMI and hopefully Felipe will have a fighting chance next year.

I will LMAO when Kimi is on the start line in Australia after all the banging on about Alonso taking his seat :p

Until reading a previous comment on this thread I could think of very few reasons for Alonso not to go to Ferrari, atleast for Valencia. But now that Renault has logded their appeal and the FIA, being the FIA, have loosely said that the appeal will be heard in the next 4 weeks. If say they held it in 3, surely this would be too late for Ferrari, they need to have someone guarenteed.
I would LOVE to see Davidson in a car (although I would HUGELY miss his commentary!), but I can see how unlikely this is, so I would quite like to see what Bourdais could do in a good car. It'd be different, and more likely that Massa could get his seat back if (fingers x'ed X) he chose to do so.

Ferrari at the end will do what's right. Gene and Badoer are reserve drivers and they know the Ferrari. I think Schumacher will stay retired and Ferrari probably won't call Bourdais. Considering there is no testing, the reserve drivers are the most promising drivers.

Maybe Ferrari will follow the "Have I got news for you" format and have a different celebrity guest driver in the seat for each of the remaining races, Rossi one week, Danica Patrick the next, and if they've got enough carbon fibre in the workshop they can widen the bodywork enough to squeeze Nigel Mansell in.

VALENTINO!!! Completely implausible & impossible given the ammount of competition he has in GP at the moment, but still, wouldn't that be great to see!...

Ralf Schumacher? Sato? The list of junior drivers is endless too & i'm sure there's plenty that are capable & also free.

But i think given the current situation with Ferrari they need someone proven & as fresh as possible, there's no point taking any gambles or just chuckin anybody in there.

Shumacher's the best bet i think, but i'd love to see Davidson get it.

How about David Coulthard. A very safe pair of hands and proven experienced driver.Doing a great job commentating but surely would love to drive for ferrari.
