Go on the veteran...

It IS the older, veteran`s who R, showin the young ens how it is done.
Alonso makin his return.  Gettin aound the world in pursuit of motorsports triple crown.
Kimi STILL on track - NOT just makin up the numbers.
Kimi IS in the REAL battle of F1 - the midfield.
The midfield IS where the action IS.  Mercedes off in the distance, Ferrari works startin 2 regain.
The real battle IS in the midfield .
Red Bull and Honda wantin 2 join the party with Max, though reliablity is the issue.
It WILL B good 2 see Alonso in his Renault possibly fightin with Max in his GP2 engine.

You must be either living in the past, or hiding in a cave, totally oblivious to the fact, that Honda rose to be a second best engine in the F1 at the moment, despite working in difficult conditions. Nothing of substance to your claim.

Did Honda really rise or, did the competition just fall away ?
In the V8 era for example there were Cosworth amongst other independents
Though money talks in F1, and Cosworth have NOT been able 2 develop a turbo hybrid PU

I would personally say that Honda took up the challenge of competing with Mercedes, and fared well.

The competition from Ferrari and Renault didn't fall back, thier hands are tied because of the silly token system. Honda realized the advantages of the split turbo and changed thier whole PU to become competitive, again, they are restricted by the token system to not be able to develop the PU further, or they could have matched Merc.

Why deal with conjecture where rivals would be IF, when we know for fact that Honda is doing very well. Whether Honda could do even better, I have no idea.

Mick needs to get out as fast as he can, and as far as he can. Junior RB team is one thing, but Haas and Alfa seems dead end for a young driver like Mick. At least IMO. It doesn't look good right now. All good seats are taken for foreseeable future, and there are other drivers waiting for a call. Sending him to Haas, Binotto most likely destroyed Mick's career even before it began. Leclerc is Ferrari's leading man for next 5 years, if not more, and for Mick to overcome that hurdle and dethrone him, he would have to negate seniority, F1 experience, team's bias, and political winds as Italians want an Italian in that seat.

I really like your thinking here, and agree on your assesment. Great stuff!

Also agree. Mick would have been in better hands going to Alfa, but Haas a disasterclass of a team and I have no positive outlook for him if he stays there.

Going to the Red Bull family is really his best move, but if that's too cut throat them maybe Mclaren could be a good option. They think of Schumi fondly and did try to sign him.

Reanult/Alpine would be a big fat NON too. I'd advise going anywhere near Alonso as it would also be detrimental.

Money problems in the offing?

Been following. Vasseur acts and speak like a worried man lately. Merger, Performance issues, Financials tops the list

The team deserves better

I like the merging Latin name Stellantis. Unexpected. Majestic. Luxurious (ok, maybe scrap this one)

Saw that. Maybe they got some data on Superfast engine. :snigger:

Maybe it's monetary, saving on costs

When asked Is it possible to make friends among other drivers, the Iceman said “For me, Sebastian and Antonio are. Apart from them I don’t have many.”

Kimi has now revealed that he has two friends from the present lineup. One is his ex-teammate Sebastian Vettel and the other one is his current teammate Antonio Giovinazzi.

Yeah, it's amusing, but there could have been a potential risk that he will damage equipment with far reaching consequences if he continues. The engineer on the line despite wanting to keep private issues private, he should have been maybe more forthright why box was essential, in that instant when he realised Kimi is toying with him.
