Hope it is announced soon before it loses it impact, lest it becomes just a mere formality/'worst kept secret' etc...

 

Yeah reminds me of Ricci to RB. At the end there weren´t much that cared about it.

 

I wonder whether we will get some Kimi-Monte-Domi handshake pics

Good luck to Kimi and I hope he is given a fair shot alongside Alonso. I can't imagine Kimi signing a contract unless he was given that type of assurance. It'll be the strongest driver pairing to emerge since 2007 IMO. Looking forward to it already :)

That wouldn't work now, will it? Kimi does not have a Twitter account.

Kimi informed Lotus today about his decision to move to Ferrari this seems to say - http://www.blogf1.it...rrari-dal-2014/

 

From text:

"Raikkonen has confirmed its decision a few minutes ago to the Lotus team, who should replace him with Nico Hulkenberg."

I believe Kimi wants to wait for one of the Robertsons get better from his Cancer threatment in USA.

I believe this could be the reason too.

Ferrari still is one of the trending topics, so they must enjoy all the publicity while we F1 fans are -still- waiting for an official announcement...

It's funny how they think that they know that it was confirmed "few minutes ago". Sure that Lotus has known for a long time.

Probably Kimi telling the team personally at the factory, instead of just his boss

I'm certain the delay has to do with sponsorship paperwork.

Why is this taking so long?

I think they are busy discussing how to draw up the contracts. They just realised that the last contracts without any No. 1 driver terms were written in 1993.

The only thing he'd be telling you with that pic is that you're probably reading too much into it.....sheesh lol

I'm actually wondering whether Massa jumped the gun and announced his departure before Ferrari were ready and wanted him to ?

TBH , lotusF1's tweeter seemed to have died since yesterday after all the shenanigans with 'Keep calm and let kimi decide' 

 

 

well it seems, kimi has decided.

Well, according to the guardian, Alonso isn't too pleased...

Any other sources to verify this?
