The Guardian in England cited the information of ‘sources close to Ferrari’ while suggesting that the highly-anticipated press announcement is likely to feature the names Kimi Räikkönen, Felipe Massa and Michael Schumacher. ‘But their precise status will be defined later,’ the report said, ‘(giving) Schumacher another few months of decision time.’

At the same time, the Spanish sports newspaper ‘AS’ is claiming that Räikkönen has now signed a contract to drive not only for Ferrari in 2007, but also for Renault. The article explained that the 26-year-old Finn’s Renault contract contains a clause that allows him to drive for Ferrari in the event that Michael Schumacher retires.

Interesting versions flying around !! And all seems very much likely. Ferrari can spill out the three names of Kimi, Michael & Massa, and in case Micheal carry on next season Kimi might be loaned to Renault for the year. Though I very much like to see Kimi & Michael wearing the Scarlet dresses together and racing side-by-side.


Schumacher’s spokeswoman, Sabine Kehm, said at Monza overnight the decision on the timing of the announcement was reached jointly by Ferrari and Schumacher.
