Not that this was ever a possibility (no idea why he's pursued it), but I love how he's blatantly just phoned up Schumacher's spokesperson and is dressing it up as 'sources'.

Wow. Why would anybody even bother to publish such nonsense?

NBC relaying unconfirmed reports that Daniel Ricciardo has signed to replace Mark Webber at Red Bull.

No surprise, Australia is an big Redbull market. They need an Aussie. Kimi wont go there, wont go to ferrari, he will just stay where they are.

Webber let it slip before the race that it's Ricciardo.

It will be Ricciardo. Kimi wouldn't go with the contract Vettel has. Kimi's and Vettel's contracts would be incompatible (same case with Alonso).

To quote Webber: "The decision's made. We all know who it is. I'm happy with that decision. It's good for him and good for Australia."

I'm quite confident that they've chosen Will Power. :n

Nope, clearly Webber was alluding to Alan Jones' much-anticipated return to the sport. :lol:

Your both wrong. It should be no surprise to anyone that Craig Lowndes is making his long awaited F1 debut, 16 years after graduating F3000.

Of course. Why would he want to confirm Ricciardo? The longer he drags this out, the more it destabilises Fernando & Kimi.

Rumor has it Sky Italia, Gazzetta dello Sport and Tancredi Palmeri from CNN all reported that Kimi has signed for Ferrari.
Even though all I can find is "Huge hints that Kimi Raikkonen just signed for Ferrari"...
"Right now I'm having amnesia and déjà vu at the same time. I think I've forgotten this before."
