Is that the definate sign that Alonso wont be in red next year??? :? :? :?

Wow, the economy must be picking up again seeing how the bank are throwing money at F1 teams. Unfortunately my boss is still using the economy as the reason for no increments on our salary for 3rd straight year.

Seems unusual to sponsor two different teams in F1 these days. I think they had a contractual obligation or something, otherwise it makes little sense. We all know what happened when Cole Trickle's sponsor started another team... :D

Btw, Luca di Montezemelo saying Alonso will 'at some point' drive for Ferrari tells me it won't happen in 2010.

This simply means Alonso stays put at Renault for 2010.
Although, I doubt if he would be able to manage an extension of a single year.
Kimi and Massa in Ferrari for 2010.
Maybe, Ferrari will pay Renault some release fee if Alonso was to sign 2-year deal with Renault.

This is a smart play by Santander. They originally got together with McL when FA joined McL. However the success of McL & LH and the fact they own Abbey and A&L means its sensible to keep strong UK ties. But they will always follow FA as he's there man. FA is going to Ferrari the issue is FM - If he's ok then Ferrari will drop Kimi for FA, if not, FM goes and FA takes that seat
