I love the way it has been for the Motormouth Eddie in the world with the best racing life he has had in the sport and he has certainly been a great more fun than others in the sport

This is now confirmed.

This does free up an engine supply deal for Ferrari in 2018. McLaren-Ferrari anyone?? Could it be? Would Ferrari provide 'Spec A' engines for the first time ever to a customer team?

I find this inconceivable.

It doesn't appear when I use my iPad. Go figure.

If the Spaniard goes back to Renault, would he be the first driver to spend three separate stints with the same team?

OK, here's a set of contingent scenarios. Sauber agree to take Matsushita as part of their Honda deal, and as Ericsson's backers own the team, there's no room at the inn for Wehrlein. Räikkönen is finally let go by Ferrari, who give Pérez the nod. Wehrlein rejoins Ocon at Force India, and Mercedes effectively have a (pink-hued) junior team.

Hmmm, yes that's all quite possible. But like I said before, the Ferrari drive should it become available, could be difficult for any hotshot if they are expected to just play second fiddle like Kimi has. That will only suit a handful of drivers to be honest. Force India may not want to put all their eggs in a Mercedes basket regarding drivers either. It might save the a few bob on engines but it might prevent them attracting other talented wallets should Checo depart.

Matsushita at Sauber isn't for sure - it's not part of the deal.
And I also heard that the Sauber investors are not very happy with the performance of Ericsson.

I can see Matsushita ending up there, but I hope it's not at the extent of Wehrlein

I wasn't saying anything is set in stone, it was merely a series of hypotheses.

The Alonso to Renault rumour (and it is just a silly season rumour at this stage) may have just changed into 2nd gear (it's 6 speed gearbox BTW ).

I for one would like to see it happen. Renault seems to be improving race by race. Hopefully, with Alonso onboard, they are title contenders in 2018. Would love to see FA win that elusive 3rd title, either next year, or in 2019.

Would Alonso leave McLaren for Renault?

I think not.

Ghinzani at Osella?
Started with Osella in 83, moved to Toleman/Benetton in 85, back at Osella in 86.
Ligier and Zakspeed in 87 and 88, Osella in 89.

also Mansell at Williams (85-88, 91-92, 94)

But maybe there are earlier examples as well.

Actually Ghinzani had four stints, as he briefly made his debut with Osella in 81

Fisico you can kinda include as he drove for Jordan in 97, came back 02-03 and came back one last time, albeit now as Force India

Suspect Grosjean has rather cooked his goose with tremendous (lack of) brake sensitivity...
