F1 » McLaren driver announcement due before F1 finale


So, If Alonso really is calling the shots and Honda is star struck and perhaps willing to sign a one year only deal, McLaren could keep Button and Alonso and place Magnusson with another team for a year. I do think they want to keep Button but I also believe they do not wish to lose KM. Actually, Button might enjoy the challenge. It would be the most recent teammate that is supposed to dominate him. There's quite a long list of those now. If anything, the pressure would be on Alonso because if Button wins that battle then everyone would question Fernando's supposed greatness. Personally, I think he is a great driver but not really any better than the other top three or four in F1.

F1 » Alonso doesn’t expect to sit out 2015 F1 season


Kimi isn't going anywhere. This is Alonso posturing so he doesn't look the bad guy, though he has been playing these games with Ferrari for the past couple of years and they are fed up with his antics. McLaren would be foolish to take any driver who only wants a one year deal to allow him to leave. Clearly, he is not invested in their future. He feels he is owed a Mercedes. He is not. Hope he sits out the year only to never return. I very much like the driver but am growing very tired of the antics.

F1 » McLaren driver announcement due before F1 finale


F1mate: if your company is giving $100m and free engines...yes, they can call the shots..nothing much Ron or Eric can do on who Honda wants to drive for Mclaren next year
So true. I may not like it but in this case the money talks. The Honda money for Senna led to Prost leaving a tea, though I do not see Alonso in the the same category as Senna. In my opinion his was a class of one.

F1 » Hamilton on pole as Bottas squanders chance


Wow! Am beginning to think Ferrari has made a big mistake by signing Vettel. He is looking very average amongst all of the RB and Toro Rosso drivers. And Alonso may not have a ride at all. Button and Magnusson are getting the job done quite nicely now. And personal bias aside, does anyone really think Mercedes want to part ways with Hamilton? Don't think so. And with Kimi becoming more comfortable and running similar pace to FA, Fernando is no longer the great saviour demanded by any team. A year sabbatical will only see Kyvat, Bottas, Magnusson, Verstappen etc. mature and become the next wave of highly desired drivers in the sport. Time will tell.

F1 » Rosberg: Hamilton just quicker at Sochi F1 track


Hamilton learns tracks quickly, always has. His pace has always been quick but, when on a roll and when he is confident, he can dominate. I am not a Hamilton fan boy but this is historical fact. Nico is extremely good but he is not quite as quick as Lewis. If Lewis wins this race he will almost certainly go on to win the championship. On another point, I do not think either Lewis or Rosberg will leave the team at the end of this year or next, but if Alonso somehow made his way onto the team as a teammate of Hamilton, I do not know how he would think he would win the inter-team rivalry. He did not do so in Hamilton's first year at McLaren so he would be in tough with a veteran two-time world champion. I am beginning to think Alonso will end up with Lotus or take a sabbatical. I think the McLaren door is closing quickly.
