If they want a stab at the WCC then sign Kimi, if they want another year like this year & last then keep Massa.....and some sponsors happy.

I think Kimi will stay at Lotus, then again I was convinced he's go to RBR.

Going by the Italian press,Kimi and Ferrari is a done deal.As Schumacher once said,the Italian press relationships is like dancing with the wolves.
They once labeled Klmi with an unpleasant name and they now singing praises waiting for his arrival.Were I Kimi,I will go from "the mute" to "ultra mute" this trip around.

If it were only up to Kimi I'm sure he'd have no problem signing at Ferrari but I can't see Ferrari making that move as a team that has always believed in a designated no 1. driver.

If it was Dominicale making the call I'd say maybe there's a chance, but I think ultimately Luca di M, influenced by FA and perhaps some important sponsors (Santander?) has final say. In that case the only way I'd see it happen is when Luca gets a little (more) annoyed by Alonso and puts Kimi in the other car as a retaliation/provocation.

"You gonna flirt with RBR and critisize our team, well ok, ok, fine, we put the fast finn in the other cockpit...yeah that's right...how you like me now, eh?" :D

Hulk , Massa and Bianchi need to shift. Don't see Ferrari and Lotus changing lead drivers. Although I strongly believe Alonso and Kimi will swop places.

The lower teams...uhhhhhhmmmm????? who cares
