Well they need to do something about it because giving practice runs to rookies ain't going to achieve anything
Apparently it was an engine issue which raises concerns about Hamilton's engines but even so Bottas surrendered so tamely against VerstappenI am beginning to think Mercedes should swap Bottas and Russel for the rest of the season. I wonder if Russell could have finished second in the race and helped increase Hamilton's lead.
Of course I don't think Mercedes would do it, because they don't want to humiliate Bottas. But it seems like the right move. The wingman is useless unless he is at the wing.
Sounds right. I might put Tsunoda as a maybe.i was reading about drivers contract apparently half of the grid are in their final year
i think Sainz & Perez should be fine, id assume that zhou will remain providing he does well. but the other 7 i find it interesting. if id put them in piles
Renewed - Albon, Perez, Sainz & Zhou
Maybe - Schumacher, Alonso
Moves - Gasly
Leaves - Latifi, Vettel, Tsunoda
I don't disagree that Latifi needs to be dropped but he might be undroppable given Williams might want to appeal to the North American market . Do Williams have the balls to do it then?I suspect that Perez will be dropped by Red Bull and Gasly bought back up to the main team. Perez, and his big bucket of dollars, will find another seat elsewhere, probably Williams instead of Latifi.
