I don't believe Hamilton will join Red Bull. IF Webber goes they will promote Alguersuari/Buemi to RBR and promote Ricciardo or/and Vergne to STR.

Never say never. If Red Bull stays on as a top team for the next few years, then why not? Hamilton's contract is expiring...[googling]....at the end of 2012 and he should weigh up his options as everybody does.

If McLaren have 2 disappointing years this year and next then I can see Hamilton considering the move to Red Bull or Ferrari (if he were to get an offer from them).

Autosport says Massa is trying to go to Renault next year. Ferrari won't stand in his way. Perez or Webber the replacement.

yeah, but with a team like Ferrari you would either want an experienced river or a driver who proves himself consistently quick.
When was the last time Ferrari picked a newbie? or even a person with 1-2 yrs experience ?

Well at the start of 2006, Felipe Massa drove like a rookie. Sometimes experience doesn't matter. Hamilton was brilliant in 2007, his rookie year. Kobayashi was far better than De La Rosa last year. I'd love to see Kobayashi or Perez in a Ferrari!
