I'd like to see Perez at Ferrari, despite my support for Webber, who I'd like to see at Sauber, who are a team that are only getting better and better, and Webber's experience could prove very useful for them.

Perez is following Massa's steps. He is in Ferrari's young driver programme and driving a Sauber, which is like a free ticket to Ferrari ;) I'm sure if he continues his form, he will take the seat from Massa.

And Autosport magazine reckons Massa too wants to leave Ferrari at the end of this season to go to Renault. Dany Bahar, Lotus' CEO, had worked with Massa during his Ferrari years and apperantly he is open to recruit him.

Webber said several time he will end up his career with RBR, so if they drop him for 2012, he will retire!.. :zz:

Most drivers do say that but ... you know opportunities are hard to resist :O

Ferrari has the history with Sauber. Perez is driver in making for Ferrari, its all relative with engine deal and so on.

The horse whisperer, Ferrari's press release that sounds like a 5 year old occasionally, has rubbished the rumours linking Ferrari to Rosberg.

And Joost, I know it's a 25 in your signature, but with the picture resolution, the car really looks like the 24 :p

i feel Rosberg should wait and see how this season pans out because Mercedes is quite a good team to be in, and considering Ferrari's form in past few years, it hasnt been too great

Interesting Quote on Di Resta

BBC Sport's Sarah Holt in Istanbul: "Paul di Resta has been linked with a seat at Mercedes in 2012. The Scot's start in F1 has drawn high praise from Mercedes vice-president of motorsport Norbert Haug, and the pair are often seen together on the F1 circuit. 'You are always interested that teams like that are interested in you,' said the rookie. 'I definitely would like to be in the position of that one day. But at the same time I'm fully focused on doing my best job for Force India.
