It'll be close but I think Kimi has an edge in being a proven talent, plus he fits the marketing image well. Plus he gets on well with Vettel.

The Red Bull junior program is starting to look like a farce. Ricciardo and JEV are both decent but still haven't shown they deserve a Red Bull seat, at least in the eyes of Helmut and Dietrich.

I'd love to see Kimi go there and actually give Vettel a real fight. I think he could beat him.

Lotus doesn't seem to have the necessary funds to keep Kimi and they are running out of time to get a sponsor to get those funds.

Agreed, I think it will be Kimi. I see this as a good thing, which is, that it makes Marko look bad. I see him as a constant distraction and, now that his driver program yet again fails to pay off, hopefully we'll see his irritating presence decrease.

edit: Oh, I forgot the "why" part. Um, well, because he's fast. Apart from that, a Red Bull function is probably one of the things that Kimi won't mind attending, as they're typically filled with booze and girls.

I don't think that any changes to the Ferrari seat ( if any ) would affect the availability of Red bull slot..........
I think Kimi would be the one to get it, however, if Red Bull has learned any type of lesson is to get somebody, who goes in with a "confirmed #2 driver mentality" Like a Riccardo...

If RBR is being truthful that they want the best driver availaible, that would be Kimi. Kimi + Seb + Newey makes RBR an unstoppable force in on quest of Manafactures Championship. May not be the easiest combo to manage and unsure if Kimi wants extra committemtns tied to Red Bull Promotion.

I think Massa loses the Ferrari seat as you need a more consistant driver to have ability to capture Manafactures Championship. Teams care more about the Mfg Championship than the World Drivers Championship.

You may end up with 1 or two very desiriable seats at Lotus.

Engines are going to be the big story next year, possibly upsetting the pecking order.

I don't think a team wants a driver with a "confirmed #2 mentality"...it's in the teams best interest to have both drivers with a winning mentality. after all it's easier to get constructor's championship when both drivers are potential winners.
If the team can afford it they will choose the best driver. Kimi, Sutil, Bottas, Riccardo & Hulkenberg are all contenders.

I think it'll be Ricardo. Having Seb and Kimi there would end up being like McLaren when Hamilton and Alonso were there. The only time in resent memory that two number 1 drivers has worked has been McLaren with Lewis and Jenson.

If I'm Vettel I try to make damn sure that Kimi doesn't get within ten feet of that seat. Those two would start exchanging gunfire on the starting grid.
