Fernando Alonso will drive for Ferrari in 2010 with Kimi Raikkonen leaving the team.
The two-time former World Champion has agreed a three-year deal with the Maranello marque.
He will partner Felipe Massa, currently recovering from serious injury. Giancarlo Fisichella, who recently signed for the team as a stand-in for Massa, will take the role of reserve driver.
That means Raikkonen, World Champion in 2007, is left looking for another team

Alonso set to sign five-year deal with Ferrari !
Fernando Alonso will sign a five-year contract with Ferrari worth €25 million (£23 million), according to Spanish media.
Media reports claim that Ferrari will make an announcement on Thursday and team boss Stefano Domenicali has all but confirmed the deal saying: "As soon as we are ready we will let you know. We don't want to wait too long."
Speculation is rife that Alonso's departure will lead to Kimi Raikkonen returning to McLaren while BMW driver Robert Kubica is expected partner Romain Grosjean at Renault next year.

ROME (AP) -- Seven-time Formula One champion Michael Schumacher is making a comeback for Ferrari to replace injured driver Felipe Massa.
Ferrari said Wednesday in a statement that the German had agreed to get back in the cockpit until Massa is fit to return. The next race is the European Grand Prix on Aug. 21-23 in Valencia, Spain.

Not for the first time - and PF1 seriously doubts if it will be for the last time either - Ferrari have denied signing Fernando Alonso.
Earlier this week, Diario AS reported that Fernando Alonso would be heading to Ferrari next season, having signed a five-year contract.
The Spanish daily even went as far as to say that the Scuderia would be confirming the Spaniard on the Friday of the Italian GP weekend and would be including him in their post-season parties.
Ferrari, though, have denied the report.
|[TIMBONI] Tuesday, June 30, 2009 10:23:44 AM|| |
Ferrari will reportedly confirm the signing of Fernando Alonso at their home race, the Italian Grand Prix.
Rumours of his pending move to Ferrari have dogged Alonso for the past three years, however, instead of joining the Italian marque he spent the 2007 season at McLaren before returning to Renault.
But his days at Renault are reportedly numbered.
Spanish daily Diario AS is claiming that on the Friday of the Italian Grand Prix, Ferrari will confirm that Alonso will be joining them next season, having signed a five-year contract.

McLaren face being hauled before the World Motor Sport Council for the third time in under two years following their deception in the furore surrounding the Australian Grand Prix.
Sporting director Dave Ryan was made the sacrificial lamb by the team as he has been suspended for deliberately misleading race stewards investigating the chaos that unfolded last Sunday.

|KERS is a new pursuit system that works for|
a max of 6.6 seconds with a power of 80PS!!
It's a electric system that lives from a battery.
After 6.6 seconds the battery is low and needs
energy supply. Every time the pilots useing
their brakes KERS get enough energy back to
work again in the next lap for 6.6 seconds again.

Yup... From what I get it has something to do with enviromentalism? Maybe they want to make up for all those emmissions that went into the air when Lauda crashed?

I did read somewhere that they allowed something new on the front wings, although they generaly made the rules regarding wings stricter. But... They lifted the ban on slick tyres from 1998.

|IDK... Barichello has been in F1 for... what? 15 years? Maybe even more than that. Same with Fisichella, and Trulli is a veteran too. IDK, maybe one of them gets lucky and finaly wins, or at least comes close to winning the World Cup, but I dont think that will be so. I think that this year will be much like the last one. Hamilton, Alonso, Raikonnen, maybe Massa... They will be the main pretenders. Well, we will see, in any case.|

|As much as I loved him, you are right. I'd love to see Barichello do well. He's been such a staple in Formula 1. Would love to see Trulli and Fisichella come into the fight also. Unfortunately, I don't think any of them have the cars to do so.|

|I'm anxious to see if Alsonso can bring the battle he wants to bring to Hamilton. He's looked fast in testing and he seems to have something personal with Hamilton. If they mix it up on a personal level it could create opportunities for others on the track.|

No one of those you mentioned can rise to the top. Because of a simple fact that Hamilton will be there.
Ross Braun may be a good surprise tho. He really is a genius, and Im looking forward to see how his team will do.

Alonso rising back to the top ? Kimi finally living up to his potential ? Barichello still has a ride . . . good / bad ? Anybody !|

|Well, yeah, true enough, but there was that thing in Belgium, when Hamilton lost a victory because of FIA, and in my opinion that wasnt right. Anyway, it was another great season, and I just love it that for the first time since Vilineuve my favourite won the championship :).|

but he can be very prowd of his season. he kicked kimi's ass, and in my opinion hamiltons's too. bravo Felipe!!!! Forza Ferrari!!!
|[TIMBONI] Monday, November 03, 2008 10:16:55 AM|| |
|Hats off to Hamilton. He had a great season and was solid throughout. I do find it ironic that Ferrari wins the Constructor's Championship and from my point of view they are the ones that cost Massa the Driver's Championship. Between engine reliability ( or lack of ) and that stupid lighted release system for pit stops I can come up with at least 3 potential victories lost that had nothing to do with Massa himself. |

Alonso: If I can help Massa I will
Monday 13th October 2008
Fernando Alonso has vowed to help Felipe Massa beat his former McLaren team-mate Lewis Hamilton to this year's World title.
Last season Alonso, then driving for McLaren, was the one involved in a title battle with Hamilton, which led to a great deal of rivalry and animosity within the team and Alonso's subsequent departure after just one year.
This year, though, it's Massa whose locked in the title race with Hamilton, with Alonso vowing to do all he can to help the Ferrari driver beat his former team-mate.
"Yes, no doubt, if I can help, I will help Massa," Alonso told AS newspaper.

MARANELLO, Italy (AP) -- Formula One's 10 teams created an association Tuesday to safeguard their interests in response to rule changes proposed by motor sports' governing body.
Ferrari said in a statement that the meeting at its headquarters had produced a unanimous decision to establish a new "Formula 1 Teams Association" to work with the Federation Internationale de l'Automobile (FIA) "to agree upon regulations and commercial conditions which will provide a framework for a strong and dynamic sport."
