Hmm why not. I expected this to happen. If renault stays so uncertain about there future they might lose Kubica as well

Way to go Renault :(

Montezemolo set to quit FOTA role
Spoiler:
Ferrari president Luca di Montezemolo says he is likely to step down from his role as president of FOTA at the end of the year.

The Italian took the role when the Formula One Teams' Association was formed back in July of 2008.

Di Montezemolo says, however, that he is set to quit FOTA to focus on his role as Ferrari and Fiat president.

"I took up the president role because I felt it was good to have teams competing on the track, and talking out of it like sports professionals," di Montezemolo told Autosprint.

"This is what we did. However, I have another job and I can't do everything. So, I really think that I will step down at the end of the year."

Code: Select all

I think Renault are only waiting to find out what punishment Toyota are going to get from not honouring the concorde agreement. if they get off lightly then i think Renault will follow suit. if they (Toyota) get fined heavily the renault might just stay, but is that an option for Kimi? i dont think so his wage demands look like he might push him self out of a drive.

Mercedes: 3. N. Rosberg | 4 N. Heidfeld
Red Bull Renault: 5 S. Vettel | 6. M.Webber
Ferrari: 7 F. Massa | 8. F. Alonso
Williams Cosworth: 9. R. Barrichello | 10. N. Hulkenberg
Renault: 11. R. Kubica | 12. H. Kovalainen
Force India: 14. A. Sutil | 15. V. Liuzzi
STR Ferrari: 16 S. Buemi | 17. J. Alguersuari
USF1 Cosworth: 18 J. Villeneuve | 19. K. Kobayashi
Campos Meta: 20 B. Senna | 21. V. Petrov
Manor: 22 T. Glock | 23 A. Carroll
Lotus: 24 J. Trulli | 25 L. di Grassi
Sauber Ferrari: 26 G. Fisichella | 27. C. Klien

Klien :cool: I think he can impress. They never gave him the support he deserved. He is just too much underrated

^ Autosport article. Hmm, poor Kimi fans. Do you reckon he'll be back after the sabbatical? I can't really think of any top-line F1 drivers to have taken sabbaticals and come back to do great things apart from Niki Lauda...
No, I'm not calmer. Just more jaded.
