    Oh look. What a surprise Lotus driver Kimi Raikkonen keeping options open amid Red Bull and Dietrich Mateschitz rumours | Lotus F1 | Formula 1 news, live F1 | ESPN F1

    There has been talk of this ever since Kimi left the WRC scene. All the chips seem to have fallen into place. His addition would be great for the Red bull brand given his popularity. Notice how the biggest cheers in China were for him?

    Yeah, I can see this happening. Although I don't see him laying down and being a number 2 driver, so not sure how that would work. But there are rumors that Webber has already signed a 5-year deal with Porsche to race in somethingthatisn'tF1sonobodycares.

    Kimi don't play second fiddle. I see this playing out if Seb jumps to Ferrari to play with Alonso like has been rumored for 2015. But Seb has another year left at RB. Kimi could always go back to Ferrari. Mercedes will likely hold onto Rosberg for god knows why, he's their webber. Mclaren is locked up for multiple years with Button and Perez.

    So far his options for 2014 are stay #1 at Lotus, be #2 at Ferrari, or be #2 at RB.

    It'll be interesting. My money is on Ferrari.

    The only moves McLaren have for 2014 and 2015 is to can whitmarsh, bring Ron Dennis back and rehire Newey.
    Which they can only do if Telmex pays for it.

    Yeah, I'd agree that it's time Whitmarsh was replaced. But as for Dennis and Newey... don't think so. Ron Dennis took a step back to put more energy into the road cars. I don't think he'd want to be at every race again. And I don't think Newey will go anywhere for any amount of money. I think he's truly happy at RB, for now. But, yes, something drastic needs to happen on the technical side. Although, if they'd signed Hulkenburg instead of Perez, they'd probably be looking a lot stronger.

    I always enjoy the Monaco GP, yet I can see how some people find it boring. Waiting to see what comes from the Mercedes/Pirelli test.

    This year's Monaco was actually pretty exciting, compared to some past years. Sutil and Perez were out there, making gutsy passes.

    I watched it in Spanish as is now the norm for me and they seeemed very animated whenever an American or Spaniard did anything interesting.

    Massa looked a bit sad, sitting there on being prodded by staff near the armco into which he'd stuffed his Fiat. The irony for me is that I'd much rather see him world driving champion than his teammmate.

    I think a local English-language braodcast channel carried the GP also but it's too risky to watch in a language with which I am familiar -- once I've heard something there's no way to unhear it.

    It was a good race. I'm glad Nico won, wished Lewis had got Second, but commend him on his team driving as he played a great supporting role to Nico in that race.

    Sergio Perez is bat **** crazy and Quoteable Kimi thinks he should be punched . But he is entertaining to watch.

    Button drives like an English Gentleman, and whines like an old woman. Jensen, if Sergio is being a **** deal with him once and be done with it. Otherwise you'll end up with the 3 year old Vettel/Webber spat.

    Sadly, I think RoGro is done with F1 after this year. His total parts destroyed tally has got to be eating into Lotus's budget. They would arguably be better off if only Kimi was out there, especially since he has scored the lion share of the Team points at 86 out of 112.

    Maldonado wrecked and it wasn't his fault.....shocking.

    Massa better pray for his Ferrari seat next year, cause at this point, Webber would be a much better option for a Ferrari contract than Massa.

    Curious how Pirelli can call to have a "tire Safety test" seemingly anonymously and at any time with any team. Now we're finding out that they did a test with Ferrari before the last race when Ferrari gained all their speed and Fernando decimated the field, and a 1000km test with Mercedes before Monaco, where Mercedes was "Lotus nice" to its tires.

    I wonder how many "tire tests" were conducted with RBR over the years. My money is last year there was only 1 test, conducted in secret after the second GP and with RBR.

    Never fear, Leigh Diffey is lead commenting this year while Varsha remained at Fox Sports. He guest announced once but hopefully not again.

    I believe Bob will be back for two more races this year. I believe they are Spa and Korea.

    NBC have upped their game. They even sent the entire gang to Monaco. Shows at least that they are serious about improving the show.

    Ferrari ruled that it wasn't Massa's fault but a left front suspension failure.
