There will be many factors which will determine Alonso's decision. Kimi's future is one of them. One thing is for sure. There is 1000000% chance that at Honda or at Ferrari he will have clear No:1 status.

IMO great driver, problematic character which won't do any good to any team.

alonso will definitely end up at ferrari but not until 2010. maybe if kimi goes this year then he might arrive sooner than expected.

I doubt him going to honda. I think he's tired of going downhill.
I suspect Raikkonen will pull out one of these years. Alonso would be good replacement.

Alonso is going to BMW next year for a one year contract, hoping that Kimi doesn't renew his with Ferrari, Banco Santander (biggest in spain) withdrew from Mclaren and signed a deal with Ferrari starting from 2010

Alonso will drive for Ferrari theres no question about it, its just a matter of when and who he will replace which I and many others think is Kimi but I don't want Kimi to retire I think its a little to early, I'd like to see him win at least one more title.

Alonso may driver for Ferrari sooner or later. But it would be interesting to see how they handle it !

Ferrari - best choice!, BMW - ??? (maybe win a race or two), Honda - poor choice short-term, but may bear fruit in the future

If they've got their sights set on him, they better have their sights set on a title with him and not his team-mate too. Because, unless he was team-mates with someone he respects (Kimi or Kubica maybe??) AND unless he's learnt from the civil war at McMerc, then he wouldn't want to be anything but cosseted and favoured.. Maybe Ferrari should hire Sebastian Bourdais for 2010 then. :)

In all seriousness, I hope Ferrari play this right if they're going to play it at all, otherwise it could fall down around their ears.
No, I'm not calmer. Just more jaded.

Perhaps BMW have begun to open the door for Alonso??

http://www.autosport.com/news/report.php/id/70097

BMW Sauber have told Nick Heidfeld that he must lift his game more to convince them he has got over his early season problems with their car if he wants to remain as Robert Kubica's teammate next year. The Hinwil-based team have, as autosport.com exclusively predicted in May, taken up Kubica's option for 2009.

High level sources have also revealed that attempts by BMW chiefs to tie Kubica down for their preferred three-year period failed, with the Pole adamant he wants to be a free agent for 2010 (read this week's edition of Autosport for an indepth analysis on Kubica's situation).

Kubica's new deal is unlikely to be announced until the team know who his teammate will be, and Heidfeld's up-and-down form is making their decision on him far from straightforward.

For although Heidfeld had made big progress in recent races to overcome the qualifying issues, setbacks in Hungary and Valencia have once again cast doubts about how on top of the issues he is.

And BMW motorsport director Mario Theissen has made it clear that he wants to see more strong qualifying performance from Heidfeld before he is sure that the German is the right man for his team in 2009.

When asked by autosport.com if he had seen enough yet of Heidfeld's step forward to be convinced for next year, Theissen said: "I am not sure. What we saw in Valencia was mixed again and, in the second run in qualifying two, it was almost a perfect lap. He was struggling before in two specific areas of the track and in that one lap he was able to do that very cleanly.

"I hope it gives him the confidence to be strong again in the races, he has been strong, I think he will be back on track."

When asked if the qualifying factor was going to play a key factor in his team's driver decision for 2009, Theissen said: "It has to, because if you look what you can do from P10, it is limited."

BMW Sauber have not confirmed their taking up of Kubica's option, or the fact they would have preferred a three-year deal, although Theissen did admit last weekend that longer term contracts were more favourable.

"In F1 stability is an important factor, that is what I can say," he said. "That applies to the driver as well as to the key engineers, even the operational tasks. It is so important.

"Generally, I would favour a longer term arrangement on the driver side."

Yes.. Heidfeld should really lift his game!! I mean: Come on!! His qualifications are a disaster, a really disaster, his race is a little bit better, but far away from the performances of Robert Kubica.

Idea: Klein in, Heidfeld out, for the non-European GPs who are left this season
