Like we speculated a few weeks ago, Fernando Alonso’s move to Ferrari in 2010 has well and truly kicked off the silly season, with Robert Kubica now being confirmed to replace the Spaniard at Renault.
The French outfit admitted to having kept an eye on Kubica since his grand prix debut in 2006, and regard him as one of the most talented drivers of his generation.
Kubica was in need of a seat after his current team, BMW, said that they were pulling out of F1 at the end of this season. And even though BMW has since found a buyer, the uncompetitive nature of this year’s car no doubt spurred the Pole on to wanting a drive elsewhere.
So that’s two predictions ticked off the list – will Kimi Raikkonen to McLaren be next?
