Alonso for Ferrari, Raikkonen for McLaren

It looks like the long running saga of the Formula 1 driver's seat for Ferrari and Mclaren has come to an end.

The Formula 1 legendary team, Ferrari which is struggling for points this season with the absence of Fellipe Massa, has chosen its drivers for the 2010 Formula 1 Season. Ferrari president Domenicali didn't role out Massa making a return to the cockpit for the final race of 2009 in Abu Dhabi. So it's going to be either Kimi Raikkonnen or Giancarlo Fisichella, who is going to lose their seat.

And guess who is going to step in? It's Renault's Fernando Alonso. Ferrari has inked a whooping $40 Million deal for the two-time World Champion. Fisichella will be Ferrari's Test Driver. So what about Kimi?

Well, it has been smelled that both Mclaren and Brawn are interested in "The Ice Man". Mclaren which had a long relationship with Kimi, looks the most likely because it appears that Santander has been involved in the funding of the transfer, by settling Raikkonen's final year salary at Ferrari and they will have a sponsor presence on the McLaren during the 2010 season, so they stand to get some return on their investment which they would not do if he went to Brawn.
So its going to be like this the next season:

Fellipe Massa & Fernando Alonso
Lewis Hamilton & Kimi Raikkonnen
