The world revolves around Fernando

With Ferrari news pending, silly season will soon begin

Fernando Alonso made all sorts of news this weekend, first by saying his mind is made up for the future and second, by dedicating his third place in Singapore to Flavio Briatore.

“This podium (finish) doesn't change anything, I made a decision already...and soon we will know,” Reuters quotes the Spaniard.

That the decision means leaving Renault would seen to be confirmed by managing director Jean-Francois Caubet.

“Renault will remain his family, We will miss him but he will miss us," he is reported to have told French television channel TF1.

It is believed a move to Ferrari by Alonso will see Kimi Raikkonen return to McLaren and Robert Kubica take over at Renault. Alonso seems to have been linked to Maranello for years.

Alonso also stirred a little controversy.

“Obviously, now we have had these recent problems, I would like to dedicate my third place to Flavio, who watched this race at home. Part of this success is down to him and he will be pleased for the team and they deserve it too as it has been difficult for everyone, the mechanics... engineers.”

AUTOSPORT’s Jonathan Noble reportss Ferrari could announce its deal with Alonso as soon as Suzuka. It’s just a matter of working through the red tape of Raikkonen’s contract. When asked directly, team principal Stefano Domenicali said it was a possibility.

“I think that as soon as we are ready we will let you know. We don't want to wait too long.”
