    Would hate to see Button move away from the team to make space for Kimi. But on the other hand I don't see Kimi going back to Ferrari either after they let him go only just a few years ago. On the other hand staying another year at the (under-performing) Lotus team isn't really an option either.

    It's going to be a tough battle for the few available top team seats next year for sure :)

    I don't know why he would go for an underpowered McLaren, but, he could make the team more consistent.

    Jenson and Kimi on the same team? Works fine.
    Sergio and Kimi on the same team? Perez would have a black-eye by race 2.

    Ferrari could use a better 2nd driver with Kimi. He probably won't want to go back to McLaren after all the problems he had with reliability with them.

    2014 (MP-4/29?) is going to be a whole new ballgame. Nobody knows which team will build the best 'turbos' yet, although we can guess the wealthiest teams (RB, to begin with) will still be in the first tier.

    He is pulling his pants up after getting another spanking!

    Seriously, I would love to see JB and Kimi is the team for 2014? Make it so....
