First BOLD prediction of the off-season: McLaren keep Button to run along side Alonso and JB manages to not get decimated (but still loses obviously to the 2015 WDC Alonso).

I predict Button will get the boot and take up the reins at Tom Kristen's now vacant Audi seat in WEC.

Don't think we'll see Guttierez, Sutil, or Kobayashi again.

Kobayashi is still plenty young, has his sponsors and is pretty decent not to mention his time at Sauber that made his reputation. I'm sure he'll pop up on the grid again if not next season then the season after.

quote:

Police were called to the home of Michael Schumacher's younger brother after neighbours claimed he was fighting with his estranged wife.

Ralf and Cora Schumacher were reported to police in Cologne a week ago by a neighbour who said they could hear "screams coming from inside the house".

Later police officers were seen entering the Schumacher home.

Police superintendent Anton Hamchder confirmed the incident, adding: "The couple both accused each other of assaults.

"There is an ongoing investigation in the context of domestic violence."

Files on both will be completed by detectives and passed on to the local prosecutor.

Michael Schumacher, who remains paralysed and speechless following his crippling ski accident in December last year, is unaware of his younger brother's woes.

News of their split after 13 years together came two months ago.

Cora, 37, was subjected to a barrage of abuse on social media websites and branded a gold-digger who only married him for his money.

It was reported that he put a block on her credit cards that are paid for by him and has given her an allowance of less than 8,000 a month.

Ralf, 39, has devoted a huge amount of time this year to being at the bedside of Michael, 45.

He is said to have been estranged from his wife for "some time".

Both have hired powerful Munich law firms to fight for their interests and those of their son David, 13, who will continue to live with his mother.

Ralf is reported to have a fortune in excess of 150million and properties across Europe.

Media reports say the duo have already agreed that Cora can have the 1million family home at Bergheim near Cologne, Germany, but is not allowed the use of their holiday villas in Salzburg, Austria, and St Tropez, France, or another property near Duesseldorf.

Cora allegedly moaned that she is being "sold short" in the divorce settlement while Ralf allegedly flies his pet dog to St Tropez aboard his private jet whenever he misses him.

BILD newspaper said that the marriage had been in trouble for some time and that shortly after they married her own father told friends: "Something is not quite right in this relationship."

Former model Cora became embroiled in an ugly public spat with her ex-cleaning lady, Ulrike Grollmann, in 2008, accusing her of stealing bananas and using her skin cream.

I'm afraid we have no time for codes and manners.

So did anyone else snicker when they were spraying the champagne vile rose water from the podium and DC said "and there's going to be a few people who are wet down below" and it cut directly to a shot of a soaked and grinning Nicole Scherzinger, or was it just me?

Some people have been pretty vicious to Nico in the 2014 thread but I think he conducted himself very nicely in Abu Dhabi, and he's fundamentally a good, honest guy. Sure, he's made a couple of mistakes, but who in the world hasn't? I hope next year he helps Lewis a bit more instead of always fighting him

That's what I was thinking. I'd love to be paid around 12500 USD every month to not see Ralf Schumacher. However I don't come from a world of luxury mansions and dogs getting private jet flights.

They smelled of pubs, and Wormwood Scrubs, and too many right-wing meetings.

So I twatted them with a magic yo-yo. Because, hell, why not?

Fernando is smugger than you. Can you confirm you understand that message?


I remember getting an autograph from RSC at Monza in 2010 and him commenting "Not many people ask me for autographs these days."
I replied with something cringeworthy and not fit for public exposure.

Overall, with respect to this year's championships: it's a big fat "meh" from me lads.

Lewis' mind state will collapse due to incessant paranoia if this happens.
