Don't believe all the rumors. We're in a dry patch between races and there isn't much going on in F1 at the moment so we have pics of Hamilton with multiple women and rumors about Alonso. Alonso wants to be champion. The McLaren car is faster, it's that simple. He won't do better at Ferrari. Hamilton was the golden boy but he's quickly getting a big head and tarnishing that golden image. Alonso should just bide his time.

Yeah i agree with you pal. Lately, i've seen and hear many things about Hamilton. I do feel sad when i hear them. But he and Alonso still my favorite in fact.. I was supporting the McLaren from the day one i liked F! from the time of Mika Hakinen..

Hamilton won't let the fame go to his head, he's a well grounded lad.. his image is totally untarnished, he just has bundles of raw talent, not just with his racing, but his maturity, the way he handles the media etc. The boy is gonna go a long way. Watch this space.

I agree with Rollo - Alonso will stay at McLaren, at least to the end of this season and probably next year too. Ferrari are satisfied with their present drivers so there won't be a seat there and none of the other cars are as good as the McLaren. Alonso isn't stupid - he knows he's in the best place to win races right now!

That's true - although it would be the team that wanted him that would pay McLaren. Even if he waited until the end of the year, he has another year to run on his contract and McLaren would insist on some form of compensation for that, I think. And anyway, I think he'll stay - it just makes more sense for him.

Well... let's see. Alonso is the champion from last year and 2 years before. But Hamilton is GOOD and dating the bosses daughter. Still... Alonso is also good. But he's NOT dating the bosses daughter. And has a way to big ego even though he is the champion. I doubt that he will go to Ferrari so I think it will be really stupid of him to leave McLaren now.

he should date a bosses daughter... OR... he could do something really interesting... he should return to Renault... it's not a stupid thing to leave McLaren... it's the best thing for him to do... he is way more experienced than Hamilton... and from what I can see he communicates really great with the engineers... so with him at Renault we could see spectacular things... cos, for the moment, Hamilton doesn't have anybody to fight against for the title;)

For me, itps obvious. I guess that Alonso will leave Mc Laren. Nobody wants him in there, and he is no comfortable at all with the team. Ron Dennis has showed that he prefers Hamilton, and I do think that Alonso deserves a better team, a team that cares for him and a team where no strange things happen in the championship. Greetings!

You know.. having 2 best drivers always be a problem.. initially McLaren got Alonso knowing he is the Double Champion.. but things went the other way round.. no one tout the new rookie.. will be Alonso's threat.. Now Hamilton proved his ability.. and you are rite pal.. i guess Alonso should go to other team.. i guess maybe he might go to.. Renault or Ferrari..

If I were in his place I will leave... I'm sure he has offers and good ones... so he should leave... it's just common sense to leave... he is talented, he has great experience and a lot of things to prove... and all that is not possible at McLaren... at least for the moment:)... cos as all of you can see Hamilton is on the wave:)

I think he's really going to leave McLaren, and the reasons are obvious. Rookie sensation Lewis Hamilton is getting all the attention from the team and the team isn't even helping Alonso to win the championship....besides, from rumours that I heard Hamilton is even dating the bosses daughter....if I were Alonso, I would feel so lonely and dejected that no one is caring for me in the team, I would personally take the step to leave the team as well.....

It's confirmed, Alonso is indeed leaving McLaren, I can't say I am surprised. The interesting rumour (and there are many) is that as part of the severance deal, he may not race for a manufacturer based team next year which means he will not be able to go back to Renault until 2009. It also rules out Honda, BMW, Ferrari, Toyota etc. If this is the case then his most likely destinations will either be Red Bull or Williams. Of these two I would say that Red Bull have to be in pole position as their cars are designed by a top designer, Adrian Newey, and they are Renault Powered. Another Rumour has it that Ross Brawn may be interested in a return to F1 and if so he is interested in going to Red Bull. Of course, knowing the way F1 works, none of the above will actually happen. But sometimes the rumours do turn out to be true.

Yeah, alonso is leaving Mclaren.. And I think its good for him.. He shud get back to Renault with whom he got himself 2 world championship titles.. Also, he had to face a lot of problems while at Mclaren.. So, its better for him to leave Mclaren and join his old team, which is all ready to accept him back...

Fernando Alonso’s hopes of moving from McLaren Mercedes to Ferrari look to have been dashed with the announcement by the Scuderia yesterday that they are to retain the services of Felipe Massa until the end of 2010. Given that Ferrari have Kimi Raikkonen on their books until the end of 2009, the decision appears to make it impossible for Alonso to switch from McLaren to the Italian team, either this winter or in 12 months’ time. There had been speculation that the unhappy Spanish double world champion could have taken Massa’s place to drive alongside Raikkonen in 2009 after spending a year in a third team, either Renault or Toyota. The rumour mill suggested Alonso was in talks with Luca di Montezemolo, the president of Ferrari, but Ferrari denied yesterday that those talks took place and the team have given their backing to Massa, whose manager is Nicholas Todt, the son of Jean, the team principal. The decision leaves Alonso with only two realistic options: either to stay at McLaren for what he has termed “another beautiful battle” with Lewis Hamilton, his championship rival, or to make a long-term move this winter back to Renault. Most paddock observers regard relations between Alonso and Ron Dennis, the McLaren team principal, as being so bad that there is little chance of a postseason reconciliation, whether or not Alonso wins the World Championship at the Brazilian Grand Prix on Sunday. Thus a move to Renault two years before his contract expires with the Woking-based team looks likely.
