Hopely, that's the start of a fair treatment of Heikki at Macca. They are completely into Lewie Boo-Boo! Horrible....

Nico Rosberg is going to replace him at McLaren next year (if there is one). One always get respect just before Ya get the boot.

Do you think his Nico's father would be pleased if Nico went to McLaren?

There were rumours before 2008 that Keke didn't let Nico go to McLaren fearing he would be treated as number two but as I said, it was rumours only.

Now Nico has made a statement that his father has nothing to do with his negotiations so if they were based on the truth then Nico doesn't care about what his father thinks.

I remember Ganesh talking about those two being a good match already in 2007. They have been racing together in GP2, right?

But what would happen to Kovi? Poor guy, not a good F1-career as a driver. But wasn't he a good test driver for Renault when Alonso won the WDC's?

It wouldn't be nice if his F1-career ended this way.

Your points are well taken Icegirl.

Yes it is true that Lewis & Nico are good friends off the race track. And they did race against each other in GP2 Nico just got to jump to F1 before Lewis.

As for Kovi. He hasn't exactly done all that much at Renault or McLaren. Although I don't blame him for this year. But as far as I know his 2 year deal is up at McLaren and Nico is available. Nico has admitted interest in it. His deal is up too.
