Losing Sainz to Ferrari is a blow to McLaren, but Ricciardo is a more than ample replacement.McLaren may continue their upward climb
If there's one guy I feel for it's Fernando Alonso. He wasted precious late-career time with McLaren during the disastrous Honda years. He was always more competitive than the anemic soapbox derby cars they gave him. Apologies to soapboxers, as the Mc-Honda cars weren't even that good.
Lewis Hamilton is highly motivated to establish himself as the best driver of all time, bar none. With his will and star charisma, can you imagine Mercedes ever letting him get away?
Not sure why I follow F1. But I still do. The tech probably, or maybe the history. Starting grid usually = finishing. They may as well outlaw passing and be done with it.
Just an opinion
I agree Sainz + Lando are good chemistry
Alonso had his chance with Ferrari 2010-14, if he comes back I don't think he can beat young and crazy talents like Max, Albon, Lando, Leclerc, Gasly, Ocon etc, he is 38yrs old after all. Kind of like Rossi in MotoGP.
Lewis is on track to beat all records, why jeopardize and going to messed up Ferrari
Following F1? good question, over-regulated, back markers have to move away, passing is difficult, teams with most money always dominate (despite the cap on spending), to much technology in the car, FIA penalties and regulations limiting the real battle...one need to be a hardcore petrol head to still be loyal to F1, they'll need to make some radical changes in the years to come...after they banned pit-girls the popularity dropped 10% at least...big mistake
