With both Kimi Raikkonen and Felipe Massa contracted with Ferrari through next year, reports are circulating that the Scuderia may bring on board both Fernando Alonso and Robert Kubica for 2010.

After Kimi and Felipe, and with Lewis Hamilton firmly in place at McLaren, the pairing of Alonso and Kubica in Maranello would provide a formidable team against the rest of the field. Alonso, of course, is a two-time world champion and one of the only drivers to repeatedly beat Schumacher to the title, while Kubica has proven himself a competent driver of the highest degree. Whether the reports are accurate, and whether Ferrari would just dump Kimi and Felipe like that remains to be seen.

      For both drivers i think the move will mostly depend on how competitive their respective teams are next season after all the regulation changes. Fernando moving is more likely as i see less potential for Renault to return to the head of the field. BMW however are more likely to benefit from the regulation changes, potentially giving Kubica the chance to compete for the title, negating the need to move to Ferrari.

      What is interesting though is that they would be a good personality pairing at Ferrari, they get on well and both respect each other.

        Indeed. There will be some rather big changes for next year and who knows how will Mclaren vs Ferrari vs Honda vs BMW vs Renault perform and how does the drivers adjust to the new regulations.

      I hope that Kubica pulls another Hamilton on Alonso!
      • 6 Years Ago
      Kubica yes, Alonso no. Renault can have him.
      • 6 Years Ago
      Well Kimi will most probally end he's career by him self by that time.... if he's stopping. Kimi did say that when he leaves Ferrari it will be end of he's career too.
      Kimi's contract is to 2009 and Massa's till 2010.

      Anyways F1 is full of rumours and this is just one of them, but i really don't believe at all that both drivers would be changed at the same time to Alonso and Kubica.

      Kubica would make Alonso's life miserable just like Lewis did... except for the fact that Ferrari has no qualms about designating a number one driver. But if Robert got out ahead of him, he could earn the top spot and leave Alonso languishing in his wake.
      This is all interesting speculation, but I don't think Ferrari is ready for a driver change just yet. There is always the possibility of them buying out their current drivers contracts though. But make no mistake, Alonso & Kubica i@ Ferrari = very lethal combination.Can't stand Alonso though... big cry baby.

      Put Kubica in a Ferrari and he'll be a handful for any teammate.
      • 6 Years Ago
      Kubica is not going anywhere. Hes guaranteed with BMW for a few more years.

      I don't think Alonso will ever be in a Ferrari. I smell Rosberg in a Ferrari in 2010 if Williams doesn't improve.

      Kubica and Alonso?

      Yes and yes, if that is as good as it gets

      Although ideally, it would be Hamilton and The Stig
        • 6 Years Ago
        No he ain't, Hamilton isn't fast enough :P
      • 6 Years Ago
      No. Ferrari CANNOT have Kubica. I simply won't allow it. Kubica is a fan favorite at BMW and good for the team, and a good driver like him encourages the team to build a better car to keep their driver at the sharp end.

      I'm a huge BMW Sauber fan and a huge Kubica fan, so I don't want him to go join those tifosi wankers from Italy!

      I call BS. Kubica is good, and he knows it. He'd be stupid to put himself in a situation where he could be stuck in the #2 seat for as many as 8 years. Wherever Alonso goes, the mess he helped to create at McLaren will go with him until he realizes that he can't be #1 all the time as long as there is another talented driver within the same team. Ferrari is not the sort of team that is so desperate to win that it will risk chaos to get it.

      I would love to see these two at Ferrari. They are gonna bicker at each other like the way Alonso did with Hamilton and wreck the harmony at the Ferrari garage. Alonso's stinky ego needs to be paired with a no-name driver.
      • 6 Years Ago
      Last time I checked, Alonso was two-time world champion. People around here sound like he's a nobody who never won anything against any worthy opponents.
      Some beat Schumacher, some choke 18 points in the last two races and lose the title. Not everybody can.
        • 6 Years Ago
        I agree, alonso has proven to be an exceptional driver, people need to stop being idiots.
        • 6 Years Ago
        I don't think anyone here has ever doubted Alonso's driving skills. I've said it countless times: he's one of the best... you don't get to be a two time WDC on luck. That doesn't change the fact that he's a whiny cry baby who's attitude sucks. And no matter how well he drives, I'll still dislike him unless he adjusts his attitude. I never liked Schumi much either and he's the best, period. There's a huge difference between disliking someone and saying they're not good at what they do.
