Ferrari is set to confirm Fernando Alonso as one of its drivers for next season at this weekend’s Japanese grand prix.

The two-time Formula One world champion has been tipped to join Ferrari from Renault and the deal is now all but confirmed according to Maranello boss Stefano Domenicali. He said: “I think that as soon as we are ready we will let you know. We don't want to wait too long."

Kimi Raikkonen's lawyers are finalising a deal with Ferrari to release the 2007 world champion from his contract a year early and Alonso is expected to be confirmed when this deal is announced.

Renault's stand-in managing director Jean-Francois Caubet said it would be sad to see the Spaniard leave having won the title twice with the French team in 2005 and 2006. "I think Fernando will miss Renault and Renault will miss Fernando,” he said. Renault is expected to confirm Robert Kubica when Alonso’s move to Ferrari goes through.

Meanwhile, Domenicali hasn’t completely ruled out Brazilian Felipe Massa making an unexpected return to action this year.When asked if Massa had a chance of racing this year, he said: “It is too early to say that. We need to see it step-by-step, and we don't have to anticipate anything.

"He will be back 100 percent but there is no need to anticipate anything if
there is something that is not ready."I don't want to exclude anything, but we need to be cautious."

Ferrari Unveils 2010 Challenger

ferrari has unvieled their new F1 racer car. the launch was telecasted online on their official website i think - www.ferrari.com

Ferrari became the first Formula 1 outfit to unveil its new challenger for the 2010 season on Thursday, as the wraps came off the Italian squad's F10 machine.

The car, with which the team hopes to return to the top after a difficult 2009 season, is the result of several months of design work, after Ferrari decided to switch its focus to 2010 early during last year's campaign.
Ferrari won just one race in 2009, finishing a distant fourth in the constructors' championship. The Maranello-based outfit, however, has high hopes for the new car, with two-time champion Fernando Alonso having joined Felipe Massa for this year's championship assault.

"This championship will be very important for us," said team boss Stefano Domenicali. "The last championship, for different reasons, was not very positive, that is why we are dealing with this one looking to be competitive - and this is what Ferrari deserves to have."

He added: "We have two new drivers, why two new drivers? Fernando Alonso, is a twice world champion and we will say after the second one he will have a third one. He already appears among the big champions in F1, it is the right moment for him, for us, he wants to be successful and we want to repeat what the team concept is in our group.

"Felipe, we are talking of a new version of Felipe, but after such a dramatic championship like last year with the accident in Hungary and such a fantastic season, Felipe has all the assets to prove that he is a very successful one, he can prove that he wants to restart his pathway that destiny interrupted it in Hungary. Good luck to both of them."
Massa will be the man in charge of completing the first run in the car this
afternoon at the Fiorano circuit.

Well then add me also to your list! I also hate Alonso. I never would want him to come to my favorite team in F1! Please stay with Renault Alonso or else at least run into some problems with Ferrari just like you did with Mercedes![;)]
