    Il_leone that what I mean lewis driving style is a perfect fit. but his outside activities would be fine until they start losing then problems with flying around the world & missing Thursdays. but barring some 2019 meltdown by vettel if he loses this championship & is behind next year. then by both contacts end in 2020 lewis would be nearly 36 vettel 34. Mansell was 36 but started at 27. Hamilton & vettel were 22 & 19. by 27 Hamilton had already won 17gps & been world champ. vettel had been crowned a 4 x world champ

    Incidentally Toto has come out and defended the criticism labelled at Vettel so perhaps Mercedes could plan to sign him for 2020

    Toto and Seb are good friends, Toto went to a birthday party at Sebs home last year I believe which raised some eyebrows at the time. So yeah, I could see them working together, but not whilst Hamilton is at Mercedes I would guess.

    That is why I feel there is still a ticket out for Seb given Mercedes have had a world champion driver for every year since coming back in 2010 but they would love a German world champion ultimately

    Yes Toto backed Seb but his own bosses haven't which raises further eyebrows about the team dynamics at Ferrari

    Now Seb has come out saying Ferrari do not need to impose team orders yet but then Kimi is not really going to care given he looks like he is leaving F1

    Kimi will either drive like a demon for the rest of the season ignoring anything the team says to him. Or sit at the back losing Ferrari points. IMO

    Titch Ferrari have already lost a lot of points badly managing Kimi and not replacing him when they should have

    Sebastian has admitted he's his own biggest enemy, he seems to realise it so let's hope he can do something about it. I believe he's right, he's over driving, trying too hard and making silly mistakes that he shouldn't be making. The team have made a few as well, but then we're all only human so these things happen.

    The fact that LeClerc will be his teammate next year so Ferrari are future planning now and I said Seb position as No 1 could come in question given no No 1 driver has been at Ferrari that long and delivered zilch titles.

    Some of the things Seb's been saying and actions shows there could be some fractious relationship between himself and the management appearing in the past few weeks. He's certainly making himself a bigger target from within Ferrari

    If Seb does not win the title there is a chance he may get the boot but I think he might just fancy going over to Mercedes in 2020 knowing Bottas has a 1 year contract

    Is Vettel going to implode like the way Alonso did at Mclaren in 2007 if LeClerc starts seriously beating him ?

    there are question marks whether Vettel's performances have dropped or is it Kimi raising his when they have been teammates?

    Berger drove 6 years without a title. Alesi drove 5. Schumacher drove 4 before he won his first title.

    I said 5 years - that should be 5 consecutive years

    - Ferrari had the perfect excuse with Schumi - he was challenging before he had his crash in 1999 and when he came back he was even quicker so if he did not crash he would have won the title

    The argument rightly or wrongly Irvine had his shot and he did not galvanise the team like Schumacher did although both Brawn and Todt did not exactly back him publicly

    Vettel should be on the verge of a fifth world title

    If my aunt had balls she would be my uncle so it seems but does anyone disagree with what might have been for Seb and Ferrari?

    Speshal Unfortunately Mercedes did not get long to celebrate it and market that given Nico retired 5 days later

    How will Vettel's legacy be affected by 2018?

    I thought I'd post this as after Japan given the criticism aimed at Vettel , has he reached a watershed moment that will define his legacy as an F1 legend or great?

    He needs to shave off the dead slug! :o

    Also, Seb so wasn't happy because Kimi was steaming drunk. He did the smiling thing but you could see he was seething. Kimi was having a great time though.
