Always good to have something to fall back on. But, it's only a contract, just like the one Bourdais had. I'm sure there will be bail-out clauses on both sides, so if something better comes along, or RBR go off the boil...

Ferrari are mad not to get Vettel if not next year by 2011. Him and Massa would be a good pairing. I can see Alonso going to Ferrari and the McLaren situation being repeated. Can't see Alonso being happy being a No. 2 driver but similarly I can't see Massa playing second fiddle either.

@andrewm- Please, Alonso would wipe the floor with Massa. Massa isn't as good as Hamilton after all.

I hope Vettel doesn't go to Ferrari, I like him too much to see him go to them.

Vettel is the kind of driver that can motivate a team so that they can work towards being a top team.

Hamilton better than Massa. Ha Ha Ha. A WDC doesn't always mean you're the best driver. Massa had more wins, led for more laps, and was generally faster over a race but was let down by Ferrari but their ability to mess up.

I think people regard Red Bull as a novelty team and think Vettels future championship lies with a more established team.I think Seb should stay put and build this team around him much like a certain other German did at Benneton.
