Valentino Rossi has confirmed that he will test a Ferrari F1 car "again" this winter.

But he said that his chance to move to F1 has nearly over, he has 1 more season contract with Yamaha after that he will be 31, and he said 31 is too old to move to Formula 1. :)

I think Grosjean will get the seat at the Renault. He has the support of them and he is French. Best conditions for him

It should be Di Grassi who gets the Second Renault Seat. That man was the REAL star of GP2 this year.

At RENAULT Alonso remains with NELSON PIQUET. I got this information, just NOW!!! (HOT! HOT! HOT!)

So, Lucas DiGrassi and Bruno Senna are going to test with Honda and STR (maybe).

I would hope so. He deserves another year at least.
No, I'm not calmer. Just more jaded.

Flavio is getting senile if he keeps Piquet. He´s like Tora Takagi/Pedro Diniz nothing more.

Hardly. At least Piquet didn't throw away his podium in Hockenheim.

He's got talent,and I think deserves another shot next year,though not necessarily at Renault.He's going against a double world champion in a difficult to drive car.He outraced Alonso at Hockenheim and Magny Cours,and drove excellently at Fuji.He crashed too much and often dissapointed,and I think a departure from Renault would do him good.No no.2 drivers succeed at Benetton/Renault do they?

I so hope your right :p I think Nelsinho has something special, I'm serious, but I hope even more that Bruno gets a chance at a team, maybe Honda is his best option, because I heard an interesting rumour about that team:
Honda had a B-spec of the 2008 car, which was said to be 1 or 1,5 second faster then their car they used this whole season, but Ross Brawn was the one that said: "No, I want to take a big step next year, so we don't introduce this B-spec, but we put the new things on our 2009 car, so we can take that big step forward."

Interesting...
