BIG NEWS, Mercedes benz have b9ought 75% of brawn, which means they have left Mclaren (they are independant know) and brawn most likely to name Roseberg and Heifild as their drivers with button going to Mclaren! i can report an ITN van sitting outside Mclaren so they must be expected something big driver wise!!

Ross Brawn always said the use of his name was down to the lack of a front line sponsor and was only there to avoid calling themselves "An F1 Team" and would prefer it if it wasn't his name above the door.

What I find odd is the Button to McLaren thoughts, surely Mercedes will bring money to the table and give Button a salary comparable to a WDC? They apparently already have a German connection in Rosberg for the team...

I didn't think it was down to money with Mercedes, they apparently want an all German team?

Button and Lewis in McLaren would be interesting.

Apparently they did want an all German team, Azzy.

But this did lead them to not offering Button a pay rise.

I don't think moving to McLaren will be a great move for Button, I can see it just underlining that Lewis is the superior driver, when given the same car.

Both bits of news are hardly a surprise really.

Kimi is being paid a stupid amount not to drive for Ferrari next year so there was no point in him sticking around unless he found a deal that suited him.
From what I understand he's a dab hand at rallying as it is, so I expect him to do well.

I'm glad Kimi is out next year - he is just a little child who thinks he is better than he is.

Still a possibility he could be in F1 next year with Mercedes Grand Prix, apparently its between him and Nick Heidfeld, but most likely Nick Hiedfeld will get the seat

What? Is winning the world championship not enough these day to prove someone is a skilled driver?

Ferrari had a tough year, as did Kimi, not his fault the car was w*nk this year, nor is it Ferrari, they had a title to win last year, so they had to keep working on the cars from last year.

It's just fortunate that Brawn and Redbull had more time to work on the cars.

Hopefully next year will be alot tighter if Ferrari can get back into shape again.
TC- you sir, are one pain in the ass!
Imp- you've been offline for a while and you dont have a life. i am confused.
Kan- War is annoying to play against I will agree, but he isn't cheating.

Ferrari / McLaren will be at the front with Red Bull and Brawn I expect to be close but behind. Brawn only won both titles due to starting the car something like 9 months before the start of the season and got Honda to bankroll the testing/building of the car.

I thought he was actually going to replace massa during injury just failed fitness?

I don't see why he needs to come back to be fair, he has done it all and ended on a high.

yea, him replacing massa wasn't a rumour, he did several tests in an f2008 (last years car) and found his neck couldnt take the strain.

afaik, he still has some form of a contract with ferrari and i don't see them releasing him to join mercedes (who are kinda like their rivals in f1 due the mclaren dealings) so i doubt he'll be joining the merc team
