They should sign Schumacher for one season before bringing Perez or Vettel in for 2014. :p

So Red Bull will mantain the same drivers for the next year and then a complete change to 2014. I don´t see Hamilton driving for Lotus. Who would they replace? Maybe this is a bit crazy but I think there is a possibility that Jaime Alguersuari will be the 2nd Ferrari driver in 2013.

Two spanish drivers, Alguersuari already talked, I think, about the possibility he will return next year.. I would like to see Kubica there but it seems unlikely and i don´t know if Perez will accept just 1 year at Ferrari.

And then, in 2014, Alguersuari would move to Red Bull and Vettel to Ferrari. I don´t know, that´s just a silly prediction :p. But still who knows. There are some things that are unclear. Schumacher will continue? If he won´t then he opens space to Lewis in Mercedes. And McLaren who will they choose if Lewis leaves?

As I said before, if Lewis wants to leave McLaren in order to escape the problems that they have had (pace and blunders) Mercedes is not the team to move to!

That would be amazing. But I am afraid, Alonso will destroy him. They should rename the team to Scuderia Alonso :zz:

Of course Alonso would destroy him, Alonso would destroy pretty much anyone. But Schumacher returning to Ferrari would still be a nice story. :p

Alonso-Hamilton at Ferrari please.

Jaime and Fernando do not get along. At all. Not one single, bit.

Mclaren without lewis will be lost.

Really? How do you know that about Jaime and Fernando?

And yes as I said before McLaren are in trouble if they lose Lewis. They'd need to build a car with a big performance advantage to win the title if Button were their lead driver and they havn't done that for a long long time.

How about Kovaleinen to Ferrari? I remember MTV3 wrote something about that few weeks ago.

He's doing a good job with Caterham, and he used to be a #2 driver in his old days with Mclaren.

Lewis and Fernando are a dream team. They seem to have developed a good amount of respect for each other recently, but I just don't see it happening.

I read that today too and I think that would be the most exciting move for me too. Heikki deserves at least a test, he seemed to match Lewis better than Button is currently doing and I think some time working on the development side has given him the opportunity for working on a positive team building attitude, something Ferrari needs. I think Kovalainen's days of languishing at the back are numbered and he'll move back up very soon, unless they're paying him boatloads which I doubt is the case. Hell even seeing him move up to midfield would be fun, I think Sauber is a prime candidate. Heikki is a good performer and I always keep an eye out for him.

Grosjean isn't locked in either I believe, he'll be an interesting wild card although I foresee him signing another 1 year with Lotus. Heikki, Grosjean and the Sauber boys have the most interesting and open career paths at the moment.

I don't think that. Boulier is Grosjean's manager and they think the Frenchman is the future for them. Don't forget has has sponsorship from TOTAL for $10M.

Red Bull have two drivers in title-winning form at the moment, and given how well the RB8 suits Mark and the tenacious performances he's put in, I wouldn't be surprised if he came back to take the title.

Ah, didn't know the details, that makes sense. So he's in a similar position to Vettel, Hamilton, and Alonso, he has a drive at his current team until the car underperforms or he falls off form (unlikely in the near future) and has no real reason to leave (barring a dream contract from the current top teams)

If Lewis jumps my money is on Mercedes, they'll cater to him and Rosberg seems to be an agreeable teammate.
