Now what? Apparently they were earlier very happy together, and now they want to be very happy apart.

Honestly, Massa remaining at Ferrari is now pointless for both of them. Massa could do better at another team, and the Ferrari seat could be better used by someone else. Perez proved on Sunday that he is the perfect candidate for Massa's replacement, and the sooner he gets time in a Ferrari, the better.

Better for Ferrari or better for Perez? There can be only one number one driver at Ferrari and I suspect that position is already occupied... :zz:

I read teams, sponsors and even insurance companies want to cancel Bahrain. The decision will be done before China GP :(

Some of the journos in Jerez told me the insurance for Bahrain was turning into a huge problem, regardless of the real situation in Bahrain. Not only drivers are insured. Every single team member (from coffee boy to truck driver) and all journalists must be insured to go there and, already in February, the insurances were saying "no way". At the time, most of the journalists thought Bahrain was not going to happen.

What, already a month ago and Bernie and FIA have done nothing. They ought to have an alternative race. Maybe in Turkey as hamilton10000 wrote.

I'm not surprised Mar.

This was only a couple of weeks ago. What better way to make a point than disrupting a global sporting event?

This is of course leaving aside the moral question of having a race which is the project of the Bahraini ruling class after the events of last year.

I wonder how much Iran is paying them. I heard $150/week :roll::
