In light of Rush's imminent release, there's an interesting interview with an on-form Niki Lauda at Telegraph.co.uk
I just don't know if they need Kimi Raikkonen, do they really want two drivers fighting for the championship? I don't think so. I think they're going to go for a good driver who will pick up big points, but not beat The Finger, so J-EV or Rich-Ard-Oh are probably more likely.
Well, looks like I was vaguely right, I see Red Bull have announced they've signed Riccardo
Let the musical chairs begin...
He's not a diamond geezer, or called Joe!
I'm looking forward to the film more than the rest of this season. (Or next season, or the one after that...)

I've been more excited by MotoGP recently - though Marc Marquez, the 20-year old rookie currently leading the championship, has the potential to be Vettel mark 2 (talented, ruthless, best vehicle).
Mind you, I can't imagine Vettel driving (and coming an incredibly close 2nd) in a race when he dislocated his shoulder in practice that morning....

It's getting good reviews all-round - eg, 5/5 stars from Total Film and an av. rating of 8/10 from Rotten Tomatoes.
Tried to see it last night at Cabot Circus - a one-off preview - but it was sold out
(Saw Alan Partridge: Alpha Papa instead... )
By contrast the America's Cup coverage on BBC2 at the moment is both seriously exciting and an object lesson in televising sport
'And so on February 22nd 1966, at Luton airport...'
You might as well give him the trophy right now.
Well it looks like another championship in the bag for Seb, totally dominant on one of their worst tracks and the other contenders not quick enough or to inconsistent to catch up the ever widening points gap
It is going to take a miracle for anybody else to beat Seb, or more importantly beat Newey
I see the BBC are reporting that Raikkonen has signed for Ferrari - if true then it's proof that Ferrari have completely forgotten how to win the drivers championship, unless Alonso's on his way
Indeed. And Sniff Petrol has already summed it up nicely....
So how many races before that relationship deteriorates?
Toss up now between Massa or Hulkenburg for the Lotus seat.

At a guess, as a consequence of increasing on-road/showroom rivalry from Porsche, McLaren and AMG Black Series M-Bs, 'brand Ferrari' - ie, officially branded tat, road cars, theme parks, etc - wants all the kudos it can grab and, therefore, the constructors' championship, not the drivers', is now the priority?
If you think the F1 "officially branded tat" is bad, move to the US and see how much Harley Davidson makes out of their brand, probably more than their motorcycle sales, I'd bet.
As for the constructor's vs driver's championships, I expect the team owners (and sponsors) want the double more than anything else, except, perhaps, driver's champion and runner-up and constructor's.
