Ferrari have never been much for driver loyalty, and being 'nice' and 'talented' has done little for a parade of former drivers.

If Massa does any less than win the championship I see Kubica seated at the right hand of Fernando next year.

If the car isn't up to the challenge this year I'm afraid he's done even if he outperforms Alonso, which seems a stretch regardless.

I don't understand why people keep dropping Kubica's name. What part of his injuries is difficult to grasp? He won't be able to come back to F1, he doesn't have the necessary fine motor skills in his right hand due to extensive nerve and muscular damage, nor does he have perfect mechanical abilities in the right arm.

Ferrari 'have' shown a whole lot of loyalty to Felipe, six wins and countless podiums in the last two seasons, of which Massa has contributed three podiums. The spectre of Kubica (who hasnt raced an F1 car in over a year, other candidates are honing there applications) should merely spur Felipe on. After all, 2012 sees the final year of quite a few current driver contracts, with plenty of others on the sidelines hoping for a chance to drive the red cars.

After what I saw last season, I just can't see him getting back up there this year. He looked grumpy and unhappy most of the time last year and he made some really dumb mistakes on the track when he appeared to be trying too hard. He is under even more pressure to perform this year, and I suspect that will only detract from his performances.

He still has ringing in his ears "Alonso is quicker than you".
