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.

Schumacher won't drive according to Willi Weber:
Schumacher won't replace Massa, manager confirms

Seven time World Champion Michael Schumacher is not likely to replace Felipe Massa at Ferrari, according to the German's manager. Following Massa's bizarre incident in Saturday's qualifying session at the Hungaroring, speculation has started regarding the Brazilian's replacement, whom is likely to be for the remainder of the season.

According to Schumacher's manager, Willi Weber, who was present at the Hungaroring, Michael Schumacher is not an option for Ferrari to replace Massa.

"This is only speculation," Weber commented. "I heard these rumours on Saturday evening but I don't see it happening; Ferrari already has two very good spare drivers who will both be keen to race when the opportunity is there."

The couple of drivers in question are Italian Luca Badoer and Spain's Marc Gené.

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
