Ricciardo took a right decision but Saniz poor guy.
"Saniz" won't be at Ferrari for long. He'll slowly drift into obscurity thereafter.

Just an unsubstantiated 'gut feeling' but I feel with the cost cap Ferrari will look across the pond, and if Sainz is in the right place at the right time he may d well out of it
One test is worth a thousand expert opinions

There are no gains for FCO for Ferrari in Indycar, it's a spec series. Possibly Ferrari could develop an engine for Chrysler to run, to keep their staff busy.

I think it's more interesting to see how Sainz stacks up to Norris in their second season together. Sainz might just be the perfect Barichello for Leclerc and will be at Ferrari for the long haul. Ferrari has a history to be very loyal to their team players and not so much to their number ones.

Hmm. Yeah. It might be a good Idea for Max to join Mercedes to learn from Lewis before Lewis retires. Lots of knowledge to pass on to a enthusiastic apprentice.
Like how to land a dominant seat for 7 straight years?
Yeah.

Step 1. Drive clean
Step 4. Be a nice human being

8)
You were saying? 8)
Best WDC-drivers in F1 history:
Schumacher, Senna, Fangio

Driving a dominant car in the most dominant team ever, helped by favorable rule changes, against subtop teammates does not make you the GOAT (but still superb). It just helps you inflate/skew your stats.

I think he was impressive in race one. He made a small mistake at the restart (cold tires) with these 18' wheels taking so long to warm up. He is probably just going to get better.

Danish media TV2 - https://tv2.dk - just had a headline saying "Fernando Alonso does comeback in F1", for a couple of minutes. When clicking, I was told 'No access to this content'.
Didn´t get a screenshot - then it was gone again.

Is something cooking? Are the journalists just waiting for official confirmation?

Boy! Vettel is calling out the BS from Ferrari. I was honestly expecting him to tow the company line and it's bloody refreshing to see a champion actually call it like it was.
I think Ferrari were actually doing Vettel a favour by saying it was a joint decision. Vettel took it like a man and made it public that he was essentially fired.
