F1 » Alonso can’t commit future to Ferrari


For all his talk, Alonso has not been the most supportive voice for team Ferrari. He has shopped others on at least two occasions. When he now says it's in Ferrari's hands he may not mean more money, and may mean they will decide to release him instead, but for compensation, of course. As much as we put them on pedestals the drivers are always pawns in this game. I see Alonso or Vettel joining Button at McLaren, or, Button moving to Ferrari as part of the switch for Alonso. Jenson has been quite vague but his comments for the past week or so suggest he is very confident of his future, just can't say where. A multi-driver shakeup would add some life to the grid next year.

F1 » Vettel to announce next F1 move 'very soon'


Ferrari. The Scuderia has "fired" Alonso after having to deal with his demands over the past few years. The best driver? Likely. But high maintenance? Obviously. It will gall him that he is being forced out for the younger Vettel. Alonso will have much to prove next year, as will Seb. I suspect that, as the Ferrari comes good in handling, Kimi will own him as Ricciardo has done this year.

F1 » Alonso close to Ferrari exit


Nope. If Alonso moves then Button remains as teammate or he goes to Ferrari as part of the swap. I think that is why he is confident of his position but won't identify the team, saying only F1. Button would be good at Ferrari for a year or so, a tireless tester, very good race performance, and this would provide Ferrari the gap in time to next sign Vettel and promote Bianchi. Actually, a Button Raikkonen pairing and then a Vettel Bianchi pairing looks quite attractive.

F1 » Hamilton praises Rosberg’s mentality


Lewis bashing aside, having Rosberg and Hamilton patching up their differences for the next few races is NOT what the other teams want right now. Yes, the championship is over but there has clearly been hope that a major falling out would result in either driver becoming available for next year. This becomes far less likely if they have reliability, they do not clash, and if the points race stays close.

F1 » Red Bull's Marko compares Verstappen to Senna


There have been several "Senna comparisons" since his death, and the first I recall was Villeneuve sitting on pole in his first race and squeezing Hill in the opening laps. Others have followed, Montoya's move on Andretti in Indy cars, etc. At least those comparisons, feeble as they were, occurred because of an outstanding accomplishment on track in a professional race. This kid has yet to qualify or go wheel to wheel with the top F1 drivers of the day. Just say he is a phenomenal, potential talent and leave it at that.

F1 » Red Bull's Marko compares Verstappen to Senna


107SS2009: Taipan, As I said, the good doctor compared the new F1 test tube diver to Senna to upset Lulu. Benignly, Yes there were several “Senna comparisons” since his death but only by F1 followers comparing the driver they support to him and not of drivers comparing themselves to him, That selfee belongs to and is the trademark of Lulu.
This is true. Comparisons, while they flatter, really should only be made after an athlete or driver has completed a significant piece of their career. Even MS would continually defer to Senna as the best, despite his rather impressive statistical career.
