Well, that is the challenge...who would you pick to replace Geosjean. The candidates that have been mentioned, like Hulkenberg and Perez, are already part of teams that are as good. Why would they leave? Ocon is a possibility, but if he is not available, then who do you pick? Someone who has already dropped out of F1? Someone new? Would any of those be better options?Now Pascal Wehrlein is linked with replacing Grosjean?
Well, Hungary is kind of the track for Gasly to perform. He says this is his kind of track. Lots of slow corners with run-off areas. If he can't match his teammate's pace here....where can he?Bottas looked good at Williams when he had Massa as his team mate. Up against Hamilton he's been mostly all at sea, which actually shows how good Nico Rosberg was in some ways.
Gasly, I'm not so sure about, he's not got to grips with the Red Bull that's for certain, would he do better elsewhere? Maybe. After all HH Frentzen struggled at Williams in 1998 as I recall, then he went to Jordan and things improved for him. Some teams and some cars just don't suit some drivers, but these days they often fail in one car and it's the end of their career sadly.
that is Problem why i still have sympathy for bottas (what a change a yr makes ) because he has the impossible job but thats sport at the highest level its brutal. he has to up his game somehow or move to regain his reputation bit like barrichello had to post ferrariUnfortunately when the level is constantly that high then you are always going to look average.
If I was Wolff....I would replace Bottas with Ocon for next season and keep Russell on ice at Williams for another year. Maybe provide some technical support for Williams to help them out. Next year, Hamilton will probably surpass Schumacher's record of race wins. Would he be ready to retire in 2021 or 2022? Ocon and Russell might make for a good future pairing.Wolff has pretty much ruled Russell due to the pressure of expecting to be right on the pace for an inexperienced rookie. I do think Mercedes need to seriously say Ocon you're our man for the future and put him in the car if they are having doubts about Bottas. Wolf has said it is Bottas or Ocon
