Ferrari's performance is mainly limited by the car now, not the driver. They are not in winning form. So do they need the best driver on Earth? No. I like Lauda's idea of using Shumi to boost ticket sales. Even if Shumi is not as fast as he used to be. But is he fit? I also like the idea of celebrity drivers. It's a business, folks. As much as I like Bourdais, he doesn't do a thing for sales.

A conspiracy theory has crept out of the dark recesses of my mind. Was the Renault suspension a sneaky way to get Alonso into Ferrari? Ooooh.

If Lauda keeps acting like a social Neanderthal, he is going to die a very lonely man.

Whoever gets the seat, he will necessarily play second fiddle to Raikkonen on whom Ferrari is going to focus their effort to get at least one win before the end of the season.

For Valencia, that would be a nice gesture to let Gene drive for his a Spaniard and as a recognition for his dedication to the scuderia. And after all, he won Le Mans this year !

For Bourdais, it would be a double edged sword to go in a Ferrari in those conditions...No training, not used to Kers, etc. Unless it goes very well it will most certainly end his F1 hopes for ever...But maybe he's willing to take this 'make or break' offer.

Otherwise, there are many many options...

IF and it's a big IF Schumi agreed to get back in the car you can bet your life he would be competitive. He wouldn't agree to it otherwise. He would certainly want to be able to stay with the Finn. Realistically, unless he has kept up a strict fitness regime there is no way he can get back in the car in 4 weeks and have a hope in hell of being competitive. The difference between being fit and race fit is night and day.

Ferrari need another driver so far all the options are of no value, and Villeneuve is not an option, do you remember his drive with Renault, that was a poor showing. Maybe Wurz, as far as testers and experience i think he would be a safe bet...the Lawman

I would still prefer Shumacher, he is the best choice there is, and Alonzo is under contract it will be impossible for him to enter Ferrari in 2009.
He is fast, and he is still quick, but the most important part is the mental understanding of the car, He could help the ferrari what direction to undertake in improving the car.
