To be honest, i hope he stays at McLaren... would love to see him and Alonso battling it out in the same piece of machinary .. Kimi has come close to winning the championship twice... in 2003 he was the most consistent driver of the year, and could have come close if he was awarded victory in brazil...
in 2005 he was clearly the fastest but failures ruined his championship hopes.
If they are in the same machinary it will be interesting to see how well they go... plus Mclaren are probably the only team that can pull off having top drivers (like they did with prost n senna).

I dont want Kimi to go to Ferrari... i dont think he will go if Schumacher is there.. thats why I hope he stays at Ferrari... and hope Masa goes really well this year hence him securing the second drive!

what are your thoughts on the 2007... where will some drivers end up?

Kimi is a number 1 driver, he won't go to another team as a number 2, read he won't go to Renault. Teams do NOT win the championship with two number 1 drivers, they win it with a number 1 and someone who follows team orders!!!

hardly something impressive, if they share the winnings they also share the points!!

Watching the channel 10 telecast last night they bought up the rumour of Kimi going to Ferrari.

I hope the mclarens can get their act together with reliability, kimi is clearly one of the best drivers out there yet his car keeps failing him

i think a lot of things hinge on m shcuey's decision on his future, which now may not happen until much later in the year. if he retires(which i doubt) i think the paddock rumours will come true and kime will go to ferrari. also just as an aside valentino rossi is still rumoured to be getting a ferrari drive in future.

montoya's future could be heading south though. he has been in the series for a while now but not done much at all. very soft retirement on the w/end and as usual blamed the car again, as all good drivers do.

along the lines of traction control stopped working or something. was driving same as he did on previous lap but this time it spun. drivers ever reliant on technology and not driving the car themselves

what has montoya done... absolutely nothing.. hasnt even helped the team out in the past to win the constructors title even though he had the pace to do it.

mmm kimi wasnt up to speed... he was quick but the car wasnt. i want to see alonso and kimi in the same car.
