Famed F1 driver manager Willi Webber has made a prediction he feels will come true.  Nico Rosberg will switch to McLaren for 2009 leaving Heikki to return to Renault.

“He has a clause in his contract that Williams can surely not fulfill. Rosberg will replace Heikki Kovalainen, who will change back to Renault.”

Makes one wonder just what will happen to Jr. Jr.?

Poor Keikki… it doesn’t do much to foster a young career when he gets bounced team to team to team. He’s been reasonably quick this year, picked up points when necessary. Either way, both he and Nico are great young talents who are very marketable. I guess we’ll finally find out if Nico was just truely held back by a bad car.

Is this the same Willie Webber who has made statements in the past to throw the press off and drive the value of a driver he’s representing up? Sorry, until it happens, I’d file this with the other Silly Season “reports.”

NC,

It would explain the distance between Williams and Rosberg right now.

Is Weber flying a kite though?

I think McClaren are doing just fine as they are, and Heikki has a history of getting stronger and faster as he finds his feet.

I said this a year ago and it didn’t happen.

Bad move for McLaren if they dump Heikki. He’s good. Not that Nico isn’t. I think Nico is the real deal but Kovy is a bit of a mystery right now. He could shock a lot of people. McLaren would know the best as theya re close to him and Ron is a pro, he can tell talent from also-rans.

Exactly Brendan. Grace and I were a bit stumped by that as well.

I heard Kimi and Nico are going to Force India so their Super license won’t be so expensive

All I have to say is that I heart Willi Weber. The guy is an evil mastermind. Can’t get Hulkenburg into F1, just watch him do it. This is just step one in his evil plan.
