I guess the next week and a half leading up to Montreal is going to be crucial - it looks like there's going to be an announcement about Webber staying at RB during that time. If not, then I have no idea what will happen! We'll be back at square one :confused:

@redstorm - Surely though Kimi doesn't have an indefinite time to make a decision? RB are going to want some stability for next season and know what's going to happen too. Oh and welcome :wave:

Hi redstorm!

I don't believe them either, unless an official press release.
I just hope that it is true that Kimi has an option and it will be his decision what he will do. For me this is the only important thing......
Then he can do what he wants....And of course my personal opinion is that KR is hugely better than MW for any team.....

Thanks for the welcome! ^ Kimi I believe had mentioned before a decision in June/July and imagine that, Markos interview hinted at as much.....

Even if Webber signs don't think it's over. Only if Kimi makes his mind up is it game over. You are all very much aware that Ferrari is not shy to dump a driver. I see no reason to suggest that Massa will turn it on any time soon. They are coddling him right now saying he will be kept. He is loved in the team but I can't see them keeping him if he does not step it up big time.

The scenario I see happening now is that IF Kimi wants back in F1:
RB sign Webber soon to a 1 yr extension
Massa falls further behind Fred
IF an extension it's for 1yr only
end of 2010 Massa is out
possible straight up swap Webber/Massa or unnamed 3rd driver
RB is KIMI's pick ( has some unfinished business with the Reds...)
Webber 1 yr stop gap for Kubica in 2012

Moral of this story is IF Kimi wants the seat, it's his.

The only thing my mind is stuck on is:

Vettel is the Red Bull Recruiting Star
the team seems to be showing him favoritism ever thought Webber leads WDC and had pole...
If they want the kid to be the show, why bring Kimi??????????

Seb is good but..........Iceman cometh!

I don't really know the whole story about why Kimi and McLaren's negotiations fell apart, but how I wish it had worked out and Kimi was driving for McLaren this year. :(

Look at all the PR Button is doing. That's the hang up with Macca. Kimi wants his life, well HIS! Can't blame him either.

^ Just say it like I see it. If it cheers you up I'm flattered! Just learned not to trust the PR machines at all. If they want it to get done it will. Contract??? Nowadays they are made to be broken....a man's word is not worth what it used to be. That's why you won't see me say "if it doesn't then I'll eat my hat!!!" my hat doesn't look tasty at all ewwww... Would like a new shiny "Iceman Red Bull Racing F1" though.....

If the "Webber on track to resign" has you worried look at it from RBs side.

"Ok guys, we screwed up big time in Gobble Gobble Turkey. Now we have a PR disaster. How do we fix it? Well two high profile team members have issued conflicting stories, so we can't BS our way out. We can't just stay mum, look at what happened to Macca. It destroyed what should have been double world championships... We can be honest and spill our guts...but then our team procedures are out there as well as a sanction for using team orders. That's money out of our pockets no no no!"

(Guy taking out trash pipes in...) "why not just sign Webber again and act as if all is peachy?"

(Horner with his best impression of the Guinness beer guys)"Thats brilliant! BRILLIANT!!!"

Presto. PR calms down and you have a sheet of paper worth,well, nothing.
