I would, bloody traitor, talk about throwing your toys out of the pram, if he was good enough even with the power deficiencies he'd ring the neck of that Red Bull this season and win at least 3 races, oh hang on..............
Where would that be? Given the uncertain times of the 'new formula'.
I'm not fussed about his move and hope another team can give him the car he needs to 'prove' that he is a champion. The only team that can do that at the moment is Mercedes, so let's see what Seb is capable of in a another 'sub-optimal' car.
I realise that Ferrari is the supposed destination, as in another sub-optimal car (edited post) and was merely musing on the fact that Mercedes would be the only sensible option for a chap that needs perfection before being able to perform (it would seem!)
It has to be said, he's putting his entire reputation at risk for this move. How strange to think that a four time world champion could be remembered as a failure if he moves to Ferrari and fails to win a title.
I guess Seb thinks Ferrari's sub-optimal car is going to be better than RBR's sub-optimal one, though RBR have had the edge on Ferrari this year. Maybe Seb can see next year's RBR could be stinkier than this year's and the creation of a new team around him at Ferrari is more attractive. I think he's potentially made a good move personally, but a risky one for sure.
I honestly don't understand the attraction that Ferrari seems to hold for drivers (beyond the money, of course). For decades they were derisively known as "Ecurie Chaos" and they seem to be degenerating back to that form. The team is in upheaval and political intrigues seem to be everywhere (at least so it appears to this outsider). Staking one's future on a team in such turmoil seems a huge gamble to me.
