couple of points sodesu.
1) Hamilton won 3 races last year.
2) I'd argue that although the Mclaren was a better car, Alonso scored 10 podiums, whereas Massa finished 5th once.
Whatever Ferrari do, Massa ultimately is 1/2 a second slower than Alonso in qualifying, and more in race trim...

lol @ friends reunited, after how well they worked before as team mates why would Ferrari, Hamilton or Alonso ever think its a good idea, if Lewis goes anywhere (and i cant see it anytime soon) it'll be Redbull if any of the Mclaren drivers jumps ship to Ferrari it'll be button, his racing is as good as its ever been he can both win and lose well plus he's a lot nearer the end of his career than Lewis, that said if Ferrari have any sense they'll employ a solid number 2 (lol) to back up Alonso, the last thing they want is to bring someone in that's already chased him out of one of the most successful teams in f1

if you ask me if Massa gets the chop before the season ends it'll be Trulli who gets the nod, and Italian in a Ferrari who was already a solid number 2 to Alonso when they were at Renault

Bravo, Ferrari.
Great plan, take away any excuse Massa could have for being a mediocre driver to make for an easy exit plan. This way there is no way to blame the car. I like it!

ps. what's all this talk about poop?

You're absolutely right of course, but my point is that considering the long-term relationship he's had with Ferrari, one bad season does not make him a bad driver. Ferrari know this and they also know there are serious advantages with having continuity in the team. Australia was complete misery for him, but I think as long as he performs at least slightly better than embarrassingly bad he WILL last the season. Bringing in a replacement may or may not improve the results, but it will probably not help the engineers either. However I also think it will take a lot for him to get to stay longer than that. His days as a Ferrari driver are numbered and he knows it.

Lewis for Ferrari?? Why would Ferrari team Lewis up with Alonso and think it is a good idea?? I think Sergio Perez will be a Ferrari driver next year. He has been impressive with tyres, and he is very quick as well.
