Hi All,

Is there any chance Alonso can Join Ferrari 2020 to stop Hamilton. I don't see any other driver in F1 can stop him.

Max -> Short Temper no maturity earning lot of enemies in F1 recently Ferrari
Ricciardo -> good driver but he does not have "that" extra thing to win F1 Championship.
Lecrec -> similar to max but he will to spoke much openly. Need to mold

Who else can stop Hamilton in Mercedes. I think only Alonso. I am still hopping he can join Ferrari in 2020 if Vettel retired by this year like Rosberg or Move to RB.
Fernando is gone, sadly. Next year is all about 35 plays 2x22

They're all extremely fast and determined, with huge talented, experienced teams behind them. The 22's should be making fewer mistakes, while normally 35 means more mistakes. The cars should be close. Who else will be watching? :mrgreen:

He could not stop Vettel in a decent car, why would you think he could stop Hamilton?

For the record: I wrote this to point out, that the assumption that you only need to place a certain driver in a certain car to stop someone else from wining is utter BS.

You mean to say, RB 2010 to 2013 win was due to normal race car right? and Ferrari had a very good car?

If you put Vettel/Hamilton or Max on 2010 to 2013 Ferrari car, they cannot even close to winning points which were scored by Alonso.

with Good car Vettel ruined his chance of winning 2017 and 2018 with Ferrari. The car par with Mercedes. But in 2010 to 2013 it was not a good car.

That you say that, does not make it a fact. I added the "for the record" for a reason. I just wanted to point out your really biased assumption. I did not want do talk about drivers. I don't care for them.

I think it's foolish to dismiss Williams with 2021 rules reset and a budget cap any team could be in contention for great things. Maybe Hulk thinks he all great and wonderful but personally I can't remember any stand out race he ever done like Max in Brazil 2016 or Kobayashi in Suzuka 2010 and 2012
He's a decent driver, having shown up pretty well against Ricciardo, and winning Le Mans at his first attempt is not to be sniffed at. He also has the kind of recent, relevant experience that Williams could potentially benefit from (unlike with Kubica) so I'm a little disappointed that he has apparently ruled out the team that gave him his F1 start. That said, judging by his comments, he really doesn't seem that keen on staying in F1 or even motor racing at all, so maybe he's starting to think in terms of retirement anyway. Perhaps a career in the midfield has lost its appeal.

Brazil 2012 was surely pretty special, no? And Brazil 2010 Q3

damn you really don't stop nagging with this Alonso-thing do you?

FYI: Alonso will not, i repeat, WILL NOT return to F1, none of the top teams want him (he burned all those bridges with his attitude), he doesn't wanna drive in a mid-field team..... so please stop throwing in Alonso's name.

p.s don't respond this was just a try to open your eyes

Verstappen needs to be more careful with his mouth, he may have already burnt the Ferrari bridge.

Brazil 2012 is interesting the guy was on verge of scoring big results and he binned.these year in Germany Renault were expecting big results and were holding good position and it ended in tears the car on the wall and that annoyed Cyril and he shown him the door .Hulk is a choker and f1 has no patience for drivers like that

Hulk would be an ideal team mate for Leclerc at Ferrari if/when Vettel leaves. (Not that I think he's going anywhere just yet, though)

2021 driver market

Post

currently only 3 drivers are confirmed for 20 seats
Charles Leclerc
Perez
Stroll

which quite frankly seems to be mental compared to recent history.
i can only think its going to be crazy as drivers try and show something to keep their drive or earn a beter one

Alonso couldn't "stop" or top Hamilton in 2007, what makes you think he could in 2020. And if the 2020 Ferrari is vastly superior to the field LEC is capable of getting the job done as long as Vettel doesn't crash into him too often.

Alonso is done in F1, good luck to him in the "Dakar".

Lucky with the weather, and then he threw away another potential podium. HULK just isn't a top tier driver. I think Willams next to RUS would be great to watch, but he probably prefers to get a paycheck from an FE or LMP1 team.
