Ricciardo To Mercedes

Post by Mach on Fri 20 Apr 2018 - 4:46

Daniel Ricciardo quote: "Chinese GP win not enough on its own to stay at Red Bull"  

Sounds like Ricciardo has made up his mind.

Mercedes allowing Hamilton to leave for another team for 2019 season?  Unthinkable!!   Shocked

Ferrari allowing Vettel to leave for another team for 2019 season?  NO WAY!!!! since Sebs won a couple races this year preventing the "Poor Performance" contract clause  read1

Bottas not re-signed by Mercedes for 2019?  Real possibility  read2

Kimi not re-signed by Ferrari for 2019?  Real possibility  read2

Seb allowing Ricciardo to join Ferrari as the #2....Nope!!   Rolling Eyes

Ferrari is making noise about leaving F1 after 2020....Mercedes, not so much   :ugeek:

Why should Ricciardo sign with Ferrari?  scratch

He's sure Max V is the favourite at the team - Thus he's looking for other pastures next season.

He isn't wrong, Maddy Max just keeps doing rookie mistakes and loosing the opportunities given to him.

Max is faster on one lap, even on few laps, but he lacks racing savvy compared to Daniel!

Would be nice....but Kimi is a Ferrari man.....and will retire a Ferrari man

I think it will be Bottas.

'If' Kimi is happy to continue in a supporting role I think he will do another year with
Ferrari and think Bottas will continue with Mercedes...  Riccardo will resign with RB..

So Kimi's the first domino to decide "musical seats"

Yes to an extent. I think, given continued good performances for the rest of the year, Kimi will be given the
choice as to whether to continue with Ferrari. Whatever Kimi decides I cannot see Seb agreeing
to Daniel getting the 'number 2' seat. I am also not 100% sure Lewis will continue after this year
so perhaps there will be a 'big' seat at Mercedes....

Sadly I have no insider information so just my thoughts...

I think Kimi stays in F1 just so he is able to piss off everyone waiting for his decision. He's been doing it for many, many, many years now. Razz Razz
