Things are slowly starting to take shape: James Allen says Raikkonen will drive for Ferrari next year, regardless of if Michael quits. Both Williams drivers are staying. Klein is probably leaving Red Bull. Will Ron Dennis really give in to the media and his sponsors and let Hamilton drive that McLaren? Both Toyota drivers are staying. Montoya could line up alongside Coulthard, giving David a chance to thoroughly thrash him and show he should never have been replaced a year ago. The test driver for BMW, Kubica, is suddenly being mentioned a lot for a race drive. And what about that chap Paffett? How can he not get a drive having been recommended by Bernie?
Lastly, a headline from Sunday: ‘Button frustrated by lack of pace’. Isn’t this the same headline we’ve heard for almost two years now? I think DC has it right: Honda should stop expecting too much. They were a better team when they didn’t expect wins.
