Today, the worst kept secret in Formula One was confirmed: Fernando Alonso will be leaving Ferrari at the end of the season, to be replaced by Sebastian Vettel. At today's pre-race press conference, Alonso was asked if he'd want Jenson Button as his teammate... while Button was sitting next to him.

For those of you not in the know, the rumor du jour has Alonso replacing Button at McLaren next year when they make the switch to Honda power. Some journalist with balls of iron decided to ask Alonso if he was able to choose his teammate for next year, would he choose Jenson.

Yes, that is Jenson sitting next to Fernando. This is a great reaction, and, if anything, will prove to you that F1 drivers are actual humans.
