Crazy. For the sport, I hope it works out.

Hulk and Riccardo will be one of best driver combos on grid next year. Actually, now that RB next year will obviously not be combination of Max and Daniel, I would say Hulk and Riccardo are serious candidates for best overall pair full stop.

I think both Hamilton/Bottas and Vettel/Kimi are better pairings. Not by a lot, but slightly better.

Alonso/Sainz will be the best pairing on the grid next year.

Vettel and Kimi ...really? The 2 guys with the best car and still behind?

That was a real surprise for me. Good for you Renault.

Wow, good chess game by Renault. Hulk and RIC will be a great paring.

Makes it interesting what the other pairings will become. I think I'm gonna love the 2019 season already.

Hulkenberg is one of those who will benefit most from next years 80kg, seat + driver, rule change. Ricciardo less so. The differences between drivers are very small and that might be enough to tip the balance. See what I did there?

I know what you're saying (and I kind of share the opinion), but didn't want to start a flame war around here when it wasn't really that relevant to the main point.

It has suddenly become harder for the Hulk to get that first podium. With RIC in the picture, any chance of a podium will be snatched up by the badger.

Danny Ric is betting the Honda PU will struggle next year and Budkowski's car will be a BEAST!

I see them as being the same 'type' of driver. Hulk's best chance of a podium would have been 'lucking into it' (not reall involving luck, just hard consistent work) when someone in front slips out. Dan is the same stamp and will be there sniffing out chances.
