"It's no secret anymore in the scene." says the McLaren boss Martin Whitmarsh and confirms to BBC from his point of view what Gerhard Berger was mentioning for the first time months ago: "Alonso will definitly race for Ferrari in 2010!" Therefor one of drivers with an actual contract has to leave the Italians.
Kimi Räikkönen could join FIAT for the Rallye-Championchip. No one really believes that Felipe Massa is the one on the move.
That, in the end, provides also big pressure on Whitmarshs own driver Heikki Kovalainen, who is supposed to deliver at least one win in this season. McLaren is always known to have, at least together with Ferrari, the best drivers in Formula One.
With Fernando Alonso and Felipe Massa or Kimi Räikkönen in red, the Silver Arrows will have to struggle next year!
A spokesman of Ferrari says to the Whitmarsh interview that the Italians have a contract with two drivers, Massa and Räikkönen, until the end of 2010. "Things happen or not. We are not under pressure to change things." But that there is no point for him to speak about a 'Fernando-Ferrari-Transfer'.
