F1 » Alonso: I want to finish job at Ferrari

Much talk over the Alonso situation. Does anybody really know what his contract says, I read elseware that his contract states that if he is more than 25 points behind the championship leader at a certain point then he can leave, I also read that RD has offered him 32million$ to go to Mclaren. I don't think money motivates Alonso and Mclaren are unlikely to build a good enough chassis despite all the rhetoric coming out of Mclaren so the likelyhood is he will stay at Ferrari. However if Hamilton/Rosburg/Vettel decide to retire he might have other options, jst how likely is that?

F1 » Honda confident of matching Mercedes on F1 return

The engine may be fine but Mclaren can't produce a decent chassis and I would'nt be surprised if Red Bull took over the programme after Honda have realised their mistake after the first season. Honda and Mclaren have a very good history but that is all it is, the past, Mclaren are struggling to match teams with far less resources than them, I think Honda have let nostalgia get in the way of a rational decision.

F1 » Button admits retirement is possible

I've been saying this for some time and have been pilloried for my views but the situation speaks for it'self, unless any of the big three jump ship to Mclaren Button might get another year, if anybody does he's out. Mclaren are hardly being subtle in offering Buttons seat to all and sundry and F1 is a dodgy business and when Bernie gets involved in shifting drivers around anything can happen, money and plenty of it talks bigtime. I like Button and for all his faults he is probably the best driver outside of the top three he just has'nt had a decent car. Would Hamilton have put up with what Mclaren have provided without blaiming his misfortune on everybody in sight, NO is the answer, Mclaren have been lucky to have a driver who does'nt have the absurd ego of Hamilton and who has just got on and driven a poor car as fast as he can, I hope Button stays but I'm not counting on it, when you're at that level things can get pretty unpleasant especially with people like RD around, EGOS come f

F1 » McLaren ‘not in a position’ to get F1 stars – Dennis

Now we are getting down to the real nitty gritty they can't get who they want because the car is crap and Alonso for one is not getting any younger, he wants another championship so why would he go to Mclaren other than money. As for Vettel and Hamilton going to Mclaren just how likely is that given that Hamilton walked out and Vettel is a Red Bull man. I know anything can happen in F1 and usually does but I suspect if Button stays it will be on a much reduced contract possibly pay by results for one last season.

F1 » Boullier praises Magnussen’s fight

That won't stop Mclaren from replacing him if thay think someone perceived to be better becomes available. Big problem for Mclaren is that none of the top drivers really want to go there, why would they other then big money? as Mclaren have'nt had a winning car for years. Honda obviously want Alonso/Vettel/Hamilton and anybody else is just a stopgap including Button who might stay on on a much reduced deal until they get who they want.
