Bernie EcclestoneAs reported on homeofsport

Referring to Ferrari, which is yet to announce officially that its technical director is planning a ‘sabbatical’ or retirement, he said: “It will be a different team without Michael Schumacher and Ross Brawn.”

Ecclestone also may have spoiled Ron Dennis’ schedule for the announcement of a teammate for 2007 McLaren driver Fernando Alonso, by saying: “Lewis Hamilton will not have a race drive (but) if it was my decision, I’d be prepared to take the risk.”

That’s good ‘ol Bernie at his usual self, letting the cat-out-of-the-bag before others could. Hamilton’s will-race-won’t-race saga will come to an end once McLaren announce their second driver. As for Brawn’s sabbatical, we believe it possible that Kimi might be bringing in someone with him, so giving Brawn a break [just one of our theories]. But yes, no Brawn & no Schumi, does leaves Ferrari a little out-of-sorts.
