    I’m behind the times as usual. I don’t watch TV nor read newspapers :p
    Has anything transpired about Vettel yet? I think he might retire.

    French papers are saying Alonso has signed for Renault so Vettel is out unless he goes to a small team like HAAS

    Eeeek! How are the mighty fallen!
    He was so strong at Red Bull but hasn’t really shone since leaving them.

    i think he should go into the rally world, he's never been a great wheel to wheel racer IMO so that should suit him...

    I should know more than nothing about F1, seeing my mate was Chief Engineer for an F1 Team until he retired in 2011??? :rolleyes:

    Albeit he has won 4 World Championships, which is four more that many other decent wheel to wheel racers have won, Stirling Moss for one :rolleyes::)

    Not sure, MB will only give him 1 year extensions with the option on their side for 1 more year which is his current situation. Maybe going somewhere else that would appear to value him more will be good for his mental health, he did state that one of the reasons for his slump in form in 2018 was the lack of commitment from MB when his contract was being negotiated

    Rumor mill is going into overdrive with Vettel at Aston Martin but that would leave Stroll having to sack Perez or his son :confused::confused:

    That would be Perez collecting his P45 then. No way will Stroll remove his son unless he starts making big expensive errors and fails to pick up any points.

    I don't think Lewis wants Vettel anywhere near Mercedes whilst he is top dog.

    Would be expensive as he has just signed a 3 year deal and that includes $$$$$ in sponsorship from Carlos Slim companies

    Maybe MB will use that as a negotiating tool with Lewis
