They'll probably be a more reliable outfit than Williams have been this year, and as a Renault engine partner, it opens doors for a move to them in following years. It's probably a smart move really.

I'm not sure if it's a good move for Webber? Apparently they are trying a no name at Renault next year and not Webber go figure?

Webber expects them to be competitive enough but realistically they wont challenge for the title.
Which immediately ends all oppurtunities for the most talented driver out there... Robert Doornbos C.Klien also needs to go looking for a new job... Both were told they still had a big chance until the end(yesterday).Thereby destroying all chances really for a good negotiating position what a ****er that team boss is

Well Matesitch has made no secret about wanting the fastest drivers available for RBR and with Kimi only interested in McLaren, Ferrari or Renault, Webber becomes arguably the highest profile driver on the market now.

It also rules out Massa joining one of the RB squads if Kimi joins Ferrari whilst MS stays on and doesnt retire.

It'd be surprised if Doornbos wouldnt beat the crap out of Webber in the same car

Just wondering,anyone know wether Albers stays with midland ?

Agreed. Being Dutch doesn't make you drive 15% faster than everyone else.

Although I hope the national pride boost takes effect with Robert Kubica.

I feel sorry for the poor bloke being the first Pole in the sport. Karthikeyan claimed most people back in India didnt understand why he barely got off the back of the grid but i think Poland, being part of mainland Europe, would have a fairly high understanding of how F1 works.

first he is in a better car that Karthikeyan, and second he might be the better driver too...

Don't be surprised if Flavio retires from Team Boss of Renault at the end of the year!

i may be a bit bias about Aussie Mark being an aussie myself. but i agree that RBR will be strong next year with either ferrari and Reunalt engines and let us not forget about the engine freeze for 2008, not sure about that, all that development that has been going on over the past 50 years will be gone. ok to stop the pase increase yeah sure but where is the fun in that.

whats everyones view on that engine freeze? i'm very interested to see if other people feel the same way.
