    K Mag said it would not be an issue and Steiner said it might spice things up a bit .

    I hope he finds a seat , but unless it's alfa or RBR Yes Clutching at straws , I think he will be out .

    Beat solution for me would be for Hulk to sign as Red Bull number 2.

    Albon has time on his side and could do some more work in the Toro Rosso team.

    However, Red Bull seem reluctant to back off from their promotion within strategy. Kyvyat hasn’t done anything bar the fluke podium in Germany and I’d like to see him replaced by Albon with Hulk and Verstappen together.

    Unfortunately though, F1 continues to have poor drivers hanging on to seats.

    I THINK Horner has said they will consider looking outside the red bull racing academy.

    Maybe they will go with the hulk .

    His last year, they get to look at all options for 2021 ?

    Clutching at straws I know .

    Everyone racing in F2, F3, F4, etc etc.
    Never forget, Andrea Moda had drivers who paid for the privilege.

    Go to 7.25 .

    Is this why they stuck with RG ?

    I know he crashes a lot and moans , and I am in NO WAY his fan , but I have read the engineers like his feed back .

    Ham has been on bad form since France. It's been kind of like a 2009 season.

    This Mercedes are easily the best team in F1 history, Ferrari of the 00s and mclaren or the late 80s early 90s was more down to the drivers they had, the hybrid era Mercedes have been so much better then everyone baring the odd challenge of ferrari last year and early 2017

    Best team in this era with one of the very best drivers. That's how you win titles. It might be dull, but blame the others for not pulling their fingers out of their arse.

    Red Bull can afford to throw a bloke out of the edge of space form selling carbonated caffeine, Ferrari build some of the most desired super cars on the planet. They can afford it. :)

    It wasn't money, it was the ridiculous decision to bring in a completely new engine technology and tokens, which meant everyone was pretty much banned from catching up for a few years.

    Yeah, keep telling yourself that McLaren and Ferrari only got lots of 1-2's because of both the drivers they had and not the best car in the field.......

    My recollection is the teams had one excellent driver Hakkinen/Schuey and a journeyman no.2 DC/Barichello to back them up...... so much like Mercedes....

    And as for the 80's/90's period, McLaren were streets ahead with their race cars which they developed for race pace and not quali, hence not many poles but shed loads of wins.

    Only "maintain" their extra payments?

    Ooooh that's a kick in the nuts for poor Ferrari.

    How are they supposed to ever win another WDC / WCC?
