FI in tough situation next year. They've strongly over-performed for the last two or three years, and if they merely do good in 2018 and drop back a position or two in constructors then it will seem like a fail. They are in the unique position of kicking butt all over the midfield and simultaneously having no real prospect of becoming a front-runner. They'll only go down from here.

I still worry that the Vijay Mallya's shenanigans will come crashing down and wreak havoc on this great team. Everything that can't go on forever... doesn't.

It's begun...

They are an excelent Jordan successors.
Right, just like how the BAR Honda team is today's Mercedes and Jaguar F1 is RBR.

Agreed. Perez is good but a few years down the line Esteban and Max are going to be fighting each other for titles.

Well as much as i do like Perez and as much i think he deserves being praised for his performances the past seasons and undoubtedly also for 2018,
i think that it all gets clear as day when you realize that you could expect that if Bottas doesn't deliver for 2018, Ocon will replace him at Mercedes AMG F1 Team in 2019,
and Perez most certainly will not. Ocon is pretty good, it must be said though, but i gotta say that, though Perez is a hothead too, i really think Ocon has a very dislikeable personality and stance. I feel like he should take some more responsibility and don't put blame elsewhere (not that he's like the next Massa or Palmer), as that would also greatly improve his craft and would make him grow as a driver and become much more of an opponent.
Dumpster sounds so much more classy. It's the diamond of the cesspools.
