    Wow, look at the big mouth on Vettel. Apparently he thinks he's above the team.

    Looks like Ferrari is testing a copy of the Lotus passive aero thingy.

    Huh. If Red Bull want him I'm sure they can outspend Lotus. But Vettel will get butthurt at having a competitive teammate. They might not want that headache.

    Can anyone compare Kimi and Vettel's driving styles? Are their cars set-up differently? If so, that would be another point of conflict on the team. Who gets priority?

    I think it is all just talk... bored journalists...

    I would bet a dollar that Kimi is at Lotus next year again. Especially if he wins a couple more races.

    What, is Alonso going somewhere? Ferrari are not going to give up Alonso, and Vettel will never accept being number two.

    Seb and Kimi would be a much better combination, but it could also be a disasterous pairing if you ask me
