Dont think he will get back in the car...but with Alonso falling victim to the Nazi stewards I can see Bernie frantically trying to pull a rabbit out of a hat...

Good work by the media this time. Jumping at the first chance to suggest MS is just maybe, possibly thinking about a return, which in turn forces his manager to deny that it is the case.

So now, at least we know MS won't be replacing Massa...So if Renault decides they won't let Alonso drive the Ferrari, it's still all up in the air...Which is nice, cause once again we will be able to see how small the difference is between an established talent (kimi) and a random driver with a substancially smaller paycheck.

That is, unless they put one of those useless testdrivers in the car.

actually localsavage - the british press are quoting Willi Weber having just had a meeting MS about the race in Valencia - it was some PR girl getting ahead of herself.

Still I think MS back in the car would certainly bring a bit more interest to this season - certainly give something for Button, Vettel and Webber to think about.

If Renault fail to overturn the race ban for Valencia, which is a team ban not a driver ban. You can be pretty sure that Alonso will be in another car (red or otherwise) for the race.

Valencia circuit will be pretty empty if all the spanish supporters dont turn up. Which judging by last year is a real possiblity, they all left after Alonso dropped out.

Alonso will not want to be sidelined even for one race, he is a racer and wants to drive.

Alonso also might want some insurance he's quicker than Raikkonen though, insurance he doesn't have. For him, the reputation damage it would do if he would be, say, a half second slower than Raikkonen (quite possible) counts more or less the same way it does for MS. The only teammate Alonso has beaten till now on equal terms is Tarso Marques. At Renault he didn't beat Trulli and ultimately got a better car then Fisi/Piquet. At McLaren, he was beaten by a rookie.

He might be confident going up against Massa or Kimi for a whole season, when he can manipulate the team to his liking...but he knows this one race can do him more harm than good, he's probably too chicken to do it.

If Schumacher is happy to still put his neck on the line to race in German Superbikes then surely this is very tempting for him. As a massive fan of F1 I know I'd love to see some of the old dirty Schumacher tricks coming out of the bag against Hamilton and the rest of the new crop of drivers! Would be truly amazing for the fans, shame it probably won't happen :rolleyes:

i'm rooting for alonso here because we would finally be able to see which driver is truly better. the renault can't be so different to the ferrari that alonso doesn't find any pace. imo, i want a kimi vs fernando showdown. preferably with kimi winning because we'd know how good they as well as massa truly are.
