After 3 years of RB and 3 titles to Vettel, everybody in the off season is here talking about Hamilton, like they are talking about V Rossi after 2 years of tragedy with Ducati.

So Hamilton and Rossi are something special so much needed by F1 MotoGp and CrashNet,who bring something special to the sport of Motors, enjoy them while they are here....

Even critisism is a form of compliment remember!?

rob. you need to look at lucas interview more closely. he actually stated that he would not have lulu when alonso was in the team! he stated that they wanted a young charger. and of course sunny is right. lulu is NOT ferrari material. ferrari want drivers who do what is requested of them, and lulu does not have a very good record in that respect, other than when he was requested to lie, and did so!

When is the last time Ferrari had a young charger?? And NO top driver will pair with Telphonso while he is driving at Ferrari. Not even Seb. Ferrari is NOT Vettel material. Because Vettel does'nt like a team that talks and talks during the week. And then does nothing on race day.

rob. massa was taken on as a young charger! and he did quite well!
but one moment you are saying that lulu is CURRENTLY ferrari material, and now you are agreeing that he would not be until alonso is gone. you must have been imbibing too much over the new year!

why do you think that ferrari turned him down??? because they didnt want him. simple!

@ 107SS2009 The answer is simple. U can't have two top drivers at one team. Their will always be conflicts. Redbull has Vettel and Ferrari has Alonso. Webber and Massa are perfect #2 drivers. Their was no room for Hamilton. I know u won't agree with this, but Lewis Hamilton is a top driver and the word u are looking for is choice not chose.

rob. i fully agree, and that is what i have being saying! but there are suggestions by you and others, that lulu could have gone to ferrari (2013). that couldnt happen. apart from that, luca has said that his prime choice is seb. but who knows what the situation will be at end of ferdis contract? there will probably be a new kid on the block who could be in with a chance. and after two years at merc, lulu might not even be considered a top driver.
