WTF? no-one probably saw this coming

Post by glendo on Tue May 01 2012, 15:36

this is from fox sports, but it's all over the net:


Formula One star Mark Webber has firmed as a potential replacement for the struggling Felipe Massa at Ferrari in 2013.

Webber, who has floated on and off Ferrari's radar over the years, will replace Massa in a one-year deal, according to reports from Spain.

The Australian seven-times grand prix winner is out of contract at Red Bull next year but wants to remain in a competitive team.



Red Bull are keen to promote either Webber's compatriot Daniel Ricciardo or Ricciardo's Torro Rosso teammate Jean-Eric Vergne.

The young guns are in a shoot-out for Webber's seat but Red Bull could face a dilemma if the veteran outpoints world champion Sebastian Vettel through the season.

Rumours about Massa's departure from Ferrari have been persistent over the past 18 months and Webber has entered the picture, according to Spain's El Confidencial, because of his "great relationship" with their lead driver Fernando Alonso.

In the long term, it is widely believed Ferrari will sign young Mexican sensation Sergio Perez, who has performed brilliantly for the Ferrari-engined Sauber team this year.

But it is understood they want Perez to have at least another year's experience before stepping up, increasing the chances of Webber being signed as a stop-gap driver.

S'heesh...Nope, I didn't see that one coming Glendo.
I thought that Lewis at Ferrari alongside Schummi was the done-deal...

I believe there is something to the rumours.

They definitely won't be hanging onto Massa and Webber is at his career's end, what a fitting way to end it with a 1 year contract at Ferrari.

If Webbo complained when he somehow felt RedBull was leaving him behimd to favour Vetel, I just wonder how he will feel to be second drive to Alonso.

Lotus to win in Spain? Possibly!

I can't see how McLaren gain anything by having their test drivers in Mugello. Surely you'd want Jense and Lewis testing so any new parts they can compare directly to the cars' previous iterations? Instead, throwing in the test drivers, they have no reference point, plus you're developing to their style of driving. Just seems like a strange decision to me.

The race track is not dry, only the celebrations are seen to be non-alcoholic, you would be a party-pooper if you did not leave the hospitality boxes pissed. As for the rest of the (small) Island, the bars, restaurants and nightclubs have as large a selection of drinks available, as they do the ethnicity of the hookers that frequent them.
