Obviously people point at Verstappen/Albon, but Gasly didn't cope well with the Red Bull, some cars will suit some drivers more than others.

Looking at Russell, driver of the day. I doubt his driving in the Mercedes was particularly better than in the Williams, but he'd never get driver of the day in a Williams unless he lucked into some serious points.

The F2 races this weekend were great, and the cars are much closer.
You don't even seem to have the Pedro Diniz's even if you are a paid driver now. You must have a bit of talent to drive one of those cars that fast, or more balls than me anyway.

Checo in at Red Bull, in a way this has really worked out well for him.

Meanwhile while Lewis hasn’t signed yet the fact that Toto has resigned for 3 years should speed things up a bit.

Good news for Checo, it would have been a shame for him to leave after his results this season. Hope Albon can make a comeback for 2022.

Just need Williams to massively improve their car now.

Not sure if you watched Chainbear’s 72 minute sum up of the year, (well worth a watch) but the silly season song was very good

Looks like the 2021 season opener at Australia is going to be postponed so the season will start at the Bahrain race.

I see Alex Albon has joined the 2021 DTM season, assuming they have one. Should fit well with his backup F1 driver slot as they don’t normally to races on the same week as F1.

Of all the new or returning tracks to keep, they kept the boring one!

Meanwhile Australia is now much much later.

Wonder where the R3 will be? I am wondering if it will be a double Spanish one?

A one year deal, so currently both Mercedes drivers deals finish at the end of this season.

Fairly safe bet to say one of them will be replaced by George next year

Stable rules and Hamilton in a Merc? I may hold off on that Sky pass for another year...

Ham and George is my bet, cant see them keeping bottas. Bottas maybe move to a lower team, depends on contracts.

Depends on if Ham can be bothered to continue, if Ham can, bye bye Bot. If Ham can’t then they have a solid #2
