Webber now fishing for a drive with Renault. Which would be brilliant for him quite frankly. Alonso with Mac, Kimi in Ferrari and Webber with Renault, next year could be very good indeed.
Do you have any real proof of this? There have been alot of "rumours" spread since the German GP and the Williams "Monday Deadline" passed about Mark's seat for 2007.
There are rumours that Mark is ready to leave Williams and that he is about to sign with Renault. But he has also been linked with Mclaren if Kimi goes to Ferrari next year. Mark is reportedly "not excited" over the Toyota engine deal either.
But Mark Webber and Frank Williams have both said they are still negoiating a deal for the next two years.
I think after the German GP Mark will move on, but will just have to wait and see.
It'd be far easier to just hire a shit driver than to always worry about ways to keep Schumacher from being beaten by his teammatellpc60 said:because ferrari got a clue that hes better than shummy and fucked his car on purpose

It was talked about on various other sites as well.Prodrive could become McLaren's B team
Dave Richards is keen to link up with McLaren when he returns to Formula One and turn his Prodrive outfit into McLaren's B team.
As of 2008, when Richards' Prodrive enters F1 as the 12th team, new rules will allow teams to purchase chassis from one another as one of the FIA's cost-cutting measures.
That means, should Richards conclude a deal with McLaren, his team would not only be permitted to use McLaren's Mercedes engines but also the team's year-old chassis, which would benefit both outfits.
"One of the things I am trying to do with Prodrive F1 is bring in fresh ideas and fresh thinking," Richards told Autosport.
"We have an opportunity to do things in a new way, a much less labour-intensive way, and in a manner that we believe will shatter some of the entrenched beliefs about how a Formula One team has to be structured."
