    No Massa, Alonso or Piquet (Piquet! NOOOOOOOOOOO!!!)

    Will be weird starting with only 17 cars :( Unless Ferrari get Luca in, which is very likely.

    Massa out for the season? Maybe not because F1.com autosport and so on haven't said anything about that. Which Luca are you talking about Mark?

    Ben is right, Schumacher not being allowed into F1? Ha! There's 4 weeks of a break, surely he could get ready before Valencia. But would he want to?

    Would be awesome to see him race some rounds see how he does :)

    Then again, Luca would be the official reserve driver, so maybe Ferrari are inclined to use him.

    Renault probably race at Valencia because it's the FIA Courts holiday or something, and if they do get 1 race suspension ban it would come into play for Belgium.

    Alonso? Some rumor!

    He's signed to Renault :/ And Ferrari have 3 stand-by drivers. Why Alonso?

    Alonso has been linked to Ferrari a long time, and propably will drive the red car in a near future....this accident with Massa just made the speculations about Alonso even stronger...and who knows

    Dont think so Head Injury takes a long time to recover from. Eg. Petr Cech. He was out for 3 months from depressed skull fracture.
