Excellent example of why they call this the "silly season."

Kimi to Ferarri is so bizarre I'd like to see it just for the entertainment value. Alonso won't know how to cope with a mute equal. Kimi gave up on Ferrari last time he was there, so why he'd return or why they'd want him is a mystery to me.

The whole thing is absurd. Make it so!

Looks like a dry weekend, not that the forecast for Spa can be trusted. Only 30% chance of rain Sunday.

Of course I'm a fan of Kimi. What's not to like about him

I'd like to see him back at Ferrari and score a good couple of seasons challenging and winning the title. I'd like him to prove a point and show that his departure from Ferrari was purely political and financial move. I know people following the sport knows this but would be cool to end speculation with a driver's title and being again the latest driver to win it with Ferrari

But I won't my lose my night of sleep if he stays with Lotus or goes to Red Bull. Actually, winning the title with Lotus would be epic.

Despite all the rumours, I really want see the cards or a bluff on Ferrari rumours. Finnish media who told it first has been questioned multiple times over this and always have stated that their source is 100% reliable.

Oh and bring it on Spa. Best race track on the planet! Real driver's track.

Button is just trying to escape the clutches of Honda. ;-)

Kimi to McLaren makes almost no sense if Kimi wants to win.

I thought Button Loved Honda and Everything Japanese like his Girlfriend that everybody thinks is so Hot. Cute in a Asian sort of way but certainly Not Hot.

I'm sure you would turn her away if she showed up with a Sandwich and beer, offering you a massage and a bj.

Belgian GP: Kimi Raikkonen misses media day because of illness


Kimi Raikkonen will not attend Thursday's media sessions ahead of this weekend's Belgian Grand Prix after his Lotus team said he was feeling unwell.
The 33-year-old's future has been much debated, with BBC Sport's F1 chief analyst Eddie Jordan saying the Finn wants to move to Ferrari next season.
Raikkonen at Spa

Kimi Raikkonen has secured four Belgian Grand Prix victories - (2004, 2005, 2007 and 2009) - in his career.


Jordan thinks a deal could be announced at next month's Italian Grand Prix, but Ferrari have denied the claim.
Raikkonen is still expected to take part in Friday's first practice at Spa.
Meanwhile, Raikkonen's manager Steve Robertson said his driver would be happy to stay at Lotus for a third season if they can provide assurances about their financial and technical future.
"Lotus hold the key to Raikkonen's future," said Robertson.
"If the team can provide him with the answers he is seeking, which will ensure he has a car that can fight for race wins and the championship, then he will stay."
Raikkonen will be chasing his fifth Belgian Grand Prix win on Sunday as he looks to close the 38-point deficit to Red Bull's championship leader Sebastian Vettel.
