    Yeah there is no point for him to leave RBR right now. They are king of the heap. However the 1.6L may be the great equalizer. I cant wait for blown motors and retirements again.

    I can't say I'm looking forward to smaller engines. I really still believe that F1 should be producing the quickest cars in the World, not limiting what can be done. But, I don't suppose that goes hand in hand with safety so, oh well. I do agree that it's high time they added some unreliability back into F1 though, so hopefully these engines will bring that.

    Alonso won't whine at Ferrari because he'd have no where to go. And Ferrari have a history of axing whiny drivers. World champions or not (Prost in '91 after he compared the car to a truck) Alonso must have that in the back of his head.

    He seems a lot subdued now than he was at that fateful year at McLaren. His driving is great. All the same,not a fan.

    The sound of Renault's new V6 engine. Hmm... I'm reserving judgement until I hear it on a car.

    And so the race for Red Bull's seat begins. Not exactly unexpected. My money is on Kimi Raikkonen.
    Webber confirms F1 retirement | Planet F1 | Formula One News

    Red Bull driver Mark Webber has confirmed he will quit Formula One at the end of the season and join up with Porsche's new sportscar programme.
    The 36-year-old Australian will bring down the curtain on his 12-year F1 career, which saw him win nine grands prix, claim 36 podiums and 11 pole positions.
    Webber, though, is looking forward to the challenge at German sports company Porsche, who is set to take part in Le Mans 24 Hours next year.
    "Porsche has written racing history as a manufacturer and stands for outstanding performance and technology at the highest level," he said.
    "I'm very much looking forward to this new challenge after my time in Formula 1. I can hardly wait to pilot one of the fastest sports cars in the world."
    The Australian made his F1 debut back in 2002 with Minardi and also had stints with Jaguar and Williams before joining Red Bull in 2007. He finished third in the Drivers' Championship in 2010 and 2011.
    Although he was linked with a move to Ferrari on several occasions in recent seasons, he decided to stick with Red Bull by signing one-year rolling contracts.
    Red Bull are believed to have offered him another one-year deal for the 2014 campaign, but the Australian has decided it is time for a new challenge.
    With Sebastian Vettel set to stay at the Milton Keynes squad until 2015, Red Bull will now have a choice of promoting one of Daniel Ricciardo or Jean-Eric Vergne from Toro Rosso while Lotus's Kimi Raikkonen is also an option.

    Not sure Kimi would enjoy being #2 to Vettel. Though seeing him behind the wheel of a Red Bull, if they are still at the top of their game next season, would be rather fun to watch.

    I hope Kimi gets the spot, finally a benchmark that Vettel can be judged against.

    "Vettel is faster, please confirm"... Yeah, let's see... I don't know that Kimi is ready to listen to stuff like that, not after his "leave me alone..". I can't quite believe he'd go as second to Vettel. Of course there's the fact that money talks, BS walks.
    You can't have everything - where would you put it?

    I'm not too sure Kimi will go for this. As others have said, I don't see him being happy as a number two driver, and two number ones doesn't work. It makes great viewing, but it's not good for the team to have all that tension in the garage.

    How about Hulkenberg? Did he sign a one or two year deal with Sauber? I think for the team to continue on their very successful path, they need a younger driver who'll just be happy to have a drive with a winning team.... for a few years anyway.
