You just know that if Alonso leaves McLaren they will be contenders next year. Dude just has bad timing.

But if he leaves, how about to haas if grosjean is out? I don't see any reason he would be, just going with above comment about the brake issues maybe pushing him out. Get Alonso in an American team that could put him in a stock car occasionally, run the Daytona 500 and other American races?

A rumour about Brabham F1 making a comeback to the grid.

It would be fantastic, but I doubt it. Brabham wanted to join Le Mans or WEC - nothing happened.
Formula 1 is far too expensive.

Could it be that it's just the rights to the name Brabham that the buyers are after? And have approached David Brabham for the use of the name? The Brabhams are not financially behind this bid to buy Force India? Because they don't have the finance to actually buy the F1 team?

Would be great to have the name back in F1 IMO. And with David Brabham's involvement with Aston Martin, and Mercedes being part owners of Aston Martin, would love to see the Mercedes engines branded as Aston Martin.

The Brabham F1 Team. Powered by Aston Martin.
Does sound nice doesn't it?

Just came across this article from Joe Saward on the Brabham rumour.

I don't see any reason why not, they have every right to bring the Brabham name back into F1. Maybe they should ask Carlin for help, as they have the old Brabham factory...

Someone wants to revive the Brabham name? Splendid idea!

Let's ask David Hunt's heirs, Tony Fernandes, Boris Bernes/Colin Kolles and Proton Malaysia to do something with the Lotus name too.
Preferably all at once.

Seriously, the Brabham F1 died somewhere in 1992. Let's leave it dead and buried.

Well...who used to own the Brabham team, used to be heavily involved in F1 very recently, has plenty of money and lots of time on their hands at the moment...

Subtle clue

Here is the best yet!

Vettel has a Mercedes pre-agreement.

http://www.sportsmole.co.uk/formula-...nt_297734.html

Rumour apparently originated from Leo Turini who has an inside track at Ferrari, Turini has since denied saying it.

I would of thought this was pretty obvious move as soon as Rosberg left. I would think it was stitched up within days...
Merc up the gum tree if Bottas excels and wins the WC.
Which, if this is the case, they wont let him do.

I think they will. They have a history of being too fair. They fear any suggestion to the contrary. Maybe it'll be like Damon?

Or maybe the story is pure conjecture. There is no need for Mercedes or Vettel to have sorted that out within days. Or even by now. What's the rush?
