Alonso to Renault is about as likely as Ogier to Citroen in the WRC, and will end up the same as that relationship did.

If Riccardo to McL is the new rumour, would be cool to see Guanyu Zhou called up to F1.
Then at least will be able to join the Mercedes power in which again will be on top.
Don't forget that he is one of the best overtakers ;)

Vettel and Hamilton might have been on par at a certain time, but I don’t think they are anymore. Where Hamilton is very self critical and is constantly busy reflecting and improving himself, Vettel searches for mishaps and mistakes outside himself. He just doesn’t seem as hard for himself.

Plus, this is the second time Vettel walks away from a challenge.

I swear, in 2050, whenever there's an F1 seat available, people will still be going "hey, what about Alonso! he should come back"
The guy has driven for about 20 years. It's been good. Leave it be. Move on.

Ricciardo to McLaren confirmed. So Sainz to Ferrari is also happening.

Well then no Seb in Mclaren as someone in German media said before. End of his carreer or he is trying to go to Mercedes instead of Bottas?

I don't think Merc is eager to replace Bottas. Renault now has an empty seat but retirement is more likely with Renault taking Hulk back instead.

Seb could go to Renault however. :)

It would be the best choice for Renault if they can't get Alonso.

Sad that Sainz is in Ferrari, I want to see there Ric or Max against Leclerc and Vettel in Merc vs Ham there. :( To hell those second drivers, I don't like when someone drop his victory as Barrichello or Bottas :( it's boring, better to see action, battles wheel to wheel, scandals and intrigues, fight as Verstappen vs Ocon or fury Schumacher is running to hit Coulthard's face :D instead of that we see standard "best fans here", interview as from xerox, wingmen and butlers in top-teams

The impossible often has a kind of integrity which the merely improbable lacks.

Nah, Renault has Ocon under contract. Vettel doesn’t do well with ambitious young drivers.
