I thought about an Alonso/Button swap, but I think that would still be a tough sell. Yes Button's a WDC and has done ... OK ... at McLaren, but he's hardly one to get the Tifosi molto eccitato
, IMO. If I was in Ferrari's shoes I'd try to keep Alonso for at least another year and find a promising young Italian for the other seat and see what I could build. I'd also be doing plenty of focusing on the 2015 car while trying to make sure Alonso wasn't too far out of the hunt this season, but that's a difficult one to balance.
