These JPS Lotus were one of most beautiful F1 cars of all time in my opinion.

German media says Senna will go to Renault, which will be rebranded as Lotus. Current Lotus will have to be branded '1Malaysia'...

MTV3: Red Bull going to pay Webber off so he can't drive in 2011 - much like Ferrari did to a certain Mr. R

I think that's maybe the best option. Their relationship is pretty much unfixable after today's quotes...

Would allow Marko to get his next protege, the horrendously average Buemi, into Red Bull...

2009 points system for 2010:
Alo 90
Web 88
Ham 87
Vet 82
But 77

Old points system > 2010 system :(

BBC's Andrew Benson says that they asked Webber whether he would be at RBR in 2011 and he did not confirm.

Webber: No plans to leave Red Bull
"As long as I am enjoying my driving and performing reasonably well, and it went okay today, so as long as I don't forget how to drive in the next few months then of course I will be here next year."

But asked by BBC Sport whether he would quit the team, Webber said: "That's a pretty big step to take.

"As long as I'm enjoying my driving and performing really well, then of course I'll be here next year."
