that's better to keep groving their friendship,because if they work as a team,so it's better to win the championship

blah blah blah .. felipe I hope you kick El Torro's butt big time ..... hey 4mil, seriously they rally must have the most formidable line up, 2 very talented drivers. I think Alonso has the strategic brain, while felipe has the raw talent and is blisteringly quick ....

you know, looking at their abilities if they could work together and learn from each other they may be a pretty good duo. taking into consideration ferrari's extensive testing they've managed to skimp up here and there. Ferrari may have a good thing up their sleeves.

Forza Ferrari!

Monty, what is your opinion of him, because I can't see anything outstanding in his history? Money problems for a small team seem to insure, that the money a driver can bring will overide talent. Unfortunately that seems to be the way of F1..!!

I remember the good ol days when talent was looked for and normally found and put to drive. hence the good old days of the 80s - mid 90's. Now its all about who brings in more $$ hence why Sebastian Bourdais lost his drive. HES A 4 TIME CART CHAMPION that was in a RedBullSHIT of a car.. i think he deserves another chance (if that ever comes) in a team that has a future and with some ground. With a couple expections like FA, FM, SV, Rubens, MS, LH, JB and a couple others.. F1 has a way of hiring the jokes and blokes latley..

He had GP2 experience with no outstanding records, he had a chance as test driver for Renault with lots of competition and then he came back to Argentina to race tourism (stock cars, top race) which are very popular here (Ford against Chevrolet ... and others). Lopez in two years won more than anyone else. Drivers and managers pointed him as a great talent and a true profesional, hard worker and focused !!... I don't agree about the government supporting Lopez but they do it because they think "Pechito" is going to do it just fine and it will be good for the country's image (????)... and maybe it is the first step towards having our GP back on the F1 schedule
