    I wonder Sainz wins Ferrari's seat over Richiardo... Alonso seems to be impossible

    Retiring, 90%.
    As the statemet said, It was his choice mainly and moving from a winning team to a non-winning team (McLaren, Renault) would make no sense.

    From Italy, every major sport newspaper says Sainz, contract almost ready.
    I would really like Daniel though

    I feel like Seb of all the drivers except for Kimi has shown that more than anything he loves racing, and Formula 1 in particular. The guy knows as much about F1 as anybody. But also like Kimi he's shown a strong preference towards an easy life. I can totally see a world where Seb is content enough with his F1 achievements to go to a smaller team because he is so fed up with the mess of politics and backstabbing that is Scuderia Ferrari.

    In fact, my guess is he'll go to Red Bull. He loves Red Bull and Red Bull loves him. If he's going to be upstaged by a young pretender, might as well do it surrounded by friends in a happy environment. There he can live out the rest of his days as the Webber to Max's Vettel.

    Why do I think Seb would want to back up the guy breaking all his records? Because Max isn't going to break the only record that counts: Youngest WDC. Also, he has a better chance of stopping the youngest Grand Chelem record in the same car.

    The RedBull camp said they're not going to have him back.
    I really do believe he changed his priorities with this coronavirus situation

    Ricciardo just announced he's driving for McLaren next year.

    Edit: and Carlos confirmed at Ferrari.

    And I bet Vettel goes to Merceds with Lewis or retires.
    This is awesome.

    No way, Red Bull is way more likely than Mercedes!

    Marko says they can't afford Vettel and Vettel says he doesn't care about money.

    Honestly, if Mercedes put their mind to social issues the way they went after dominating F1, I'm sure we could have world peace in 2 or 3 months tops.

    So happy to be able to stare at things going around circles really fast again :D

    Oh and I’m not saying anything about the order of things until after Q3 :frantic:

    I'm starting to think that the actual problem is the engine with the Ferraris.
    They have downforce and do really good in corners, but they just don't have power.
    Verstappen/RedBull where right last year when they said "cheating".
    More downforce would mean better tyre life, so let's see.
