Let's talk more F1. With the unofficial signing of Vettel, the Scuderia continues to disappoint me! WTF? Alonso has two years left on his contract, and is the best driver not named Hamilton. Vettel, on the other hand, has been outperformed by his far less experienced teammate all season.
I understand the move from Vettel's perspective. He's still only 27, he's already won four championships, the Renault engine package is $hit, Newey is taking a less active role in future car development, his younger teammate is making him look bad, and the allure of driving for Ferrari is undeniable.
From Ferrari's perspective, I do not see the appeal of dumping Alonso in favor of Vettel. All Vettel has on Alonso is youth at the expense of far less talent. The Ferrari chassis/engine package is absolute $hit. Kimi can barely make it into Q3 qualifying with the car, and he's by no means a slow driver!
The real winner in all this is McLaren. Fernando better hope McLaren gets its act together, or he could be the most talented driver to only win two championships in his career.
