Inside Ferrari 15:26
It has been well documented over the last week that Alonso has been relatively quiet on Twitter, unusual for him. Today TJ13 hear that he is still not fit to race and although he is following a program to speed up his recovery it appears all hope is on a visit to FIA doctors this coming Tuesday should give him the green light to race in Austin.
Ferrari’s first choice to replace Alonso, should he not be fit to race, is their academy driver Jules Bianchi, followed by De La Rosa and Kobayashi.
Or so they say. On Thursday Kimi Raikkonen made a return to Maranello for a 2014 seat fitting, a look at the Ferrari turbo and meeting with old friends. Walking through the gates Kimi spoke to reporters in his usual minimalistic manner saying “Finally I have returned home“.
This must mean something for the tifosi who already loves their last World Champion and would do no harm for when their lost son returns home (officially) next year… or could it be sooner. It has been well documented that Raikkonen has not been paid by Lotus and was thinking of a self imposed break from racing should they not stick to their last agreement from Abu Dhabi.
Could we see Raikkonen in a scarlet Ferrari before the end of the season if Alonso is not fit to race?
