Apparently he'll join Renault.

I thought he wanted to be world champion. Well I guess Reno made him an offer he can't refuse :D

I thought Marko hated Sainz and didnt want him next to Max again. So has to be Gasly. Surely Mclaren wont let Lando go to RedBull.

Ricciardo to Renault,
Sainz to Toro Rosso
Norris to Toro Rosso
Gasly to RedBull
Ocon to stay put
Perez to stay put
Hulk to stay put
Hartley out

is my Guess

edit: or Sainz to Mclaren to replace Fernando who goes to IndyCar
For Ocon and Perez to stay put, there needs to be a force india which is not looking likely right now.

I don't see Sainz going to Toro Rosso, would be great for the team, but I doubt it. He could end up in a Red Bull or Mclaren.

yeah very very good, i love they guy. but yeah you know he does not like being a second driver, and he is becoming second driver to max.

and ferrari and mercedes having a second driver like bottas and kimi. so now max can pick his second driver. and max wel be on the same support level like hami and vettel.

and next year with redbull honda setup. with some luck can kill those 2 first drivers of merc and fer

can't wait everthing is shaping up very well indeed, i am so ready for max wandering the path of the like of shumi and senna, and show the 2 current champions that they are mediocre,


2019/HondaRedbull/First driver max/.......come on lets show the world how real champions wreck the Grid

Me either, I would think McLaren is likely, to replace either driver. I thought Ocon to Renault was pretty much a done deal?

You, me and probably the rest of the world thought Ocon was a sure deal. It's a bold move by Daniel, but it was obvious that Red Bull see Max as their future, and Daniel wasn't given what he felt he deserved. It could be money, it could simply be assurances.

I guess he wants to be team leader, Hulk is good but not quite in Ric's class.

Well both MCL and RBR wanted the MGU-K for testing in Silverstone. Renault refused to supply them.
Both MCL and RBR wanted the MGU-K for testing in Hungary. Renault refused to supply them again.

Think Renault just want them to use the MGU-K as guinea pig in real races....
Bollocks. Mclaren have been using the new MGU-K since Austria! #-o
In practice and in races.
They put a new mgu-k in Alonso’s car but it was the old version. Only Renault use the new one because it, conveniently for them, requires changes to packaging that don’t suit Mclaren and Redbull designs.

Yeah, let's wait and see. Hulkenberg is highly underrated in my opinion.
