Maybe they should give him shares , or he could ask for them like he did at williams

i doubt that would happen.

they won't want Kimi bad enough to do something like that + i don't think RBR is on the shares market? Kimi only wanted that because williams had just floated.

I don't believe the desire from both parties is great enough for him to go there. Red Bull have many more options available to them. Although some free red bull cans to go with his vodka (which apparently he loves) could seal the deal :lol:

His attitude is such he prob would expect it, but sadly i haven't seen anything from him that suggests his ready for such a move. If he was i'd of expected him to go to Mclaren (altho there motives signing Perez are questionable)

Webber to retire perhapse? I dont necessarily think he wants to but i wonder who would want him.
Where would Vettel go? I think a few team principles would have this weekend in the back of there mind before bringing him into there team

I think di Resta is a really solid number two, to use DC's turn of phrase.

Fast enough to get a few points, not fast enough to bother Vettel. Bit of a legend in his own eyes though I'm sure a 20-0 panelling in quali by vettel will dampen that.

Montezemolo will have seen it as a ticket for a Ferrari #1 job.

in the future, i was assuming neilbah was talking end of this season along side another top driver in another team. However much i think him and alonso in the same team would be great to watch with all the firworks

Vettel shot himslef in the leg. Webber won't ever help him. Also Webber is leaving RBR for sure.

I see Ricciardo as proper replacement, he's quick. Vergne is also but I prefer Daniel.

I would kick Webber out immediately and hire Bianchi as declared No2 driver! WCC secured, problems solved.

When has Webber helped him.
If prior to the 2012 Abu Dhabi Grand Prix, Webber himself said he would not obey teamorders, what kind of help could Vettel have expected from him this year?

I'm pretty sure Mark will do everything making it difficult for Vettel to win this years title. Maybe even Mark will be a in a role for the title, who knows, season is long. But one thing is for sure, they were never apart as they are now!

I don't see the point that Webber should leave Red Bull. Vettel screwed up this time so why can't he leave. I understand Red Bull would like to keep Vettel. Only time will tell. One thing is certain: one of the drivers has to leave at the end of te season.

I think you are absolutely right there. Webber can also get a boost of what happend last weekend. I think Webber want's the title more than ever

Like he did in Brazil (until Red Bull got the better of him)?
I am very curious as to when Webber actually was helpful to Vettel.

Or do you think he would give up his own victories to screw over Vettel?

If Webber gets replaced I think Daniel Ricciardo will fill in his seat. Otherwise, why would Red Bull use a driver programme?

I absolutley agree! I think Da Costa is a real tallent. Let's see how he does in Formula Renault 3.5 this season.
