  1. Wehlein or whatever his name is I think will be in Mercedes.
     
  2. Most likely. Buttons still under McLaren contract too.

    It solves the article I read immediately prior about how to handle Lewis and the inter team rivalry next year... bring in a rookie!
     
  3. Can't see Rosberg retiring from motorsport altogether so I expect to see him turn up in something else
     
  4. Well, I didn't see that one coming:eek:!!
     
  5. I recon it's just the old boys getting fed up with all the politics and lack a real raceing

    That wasn't what I was expecting :eek:
     
  7. He has achieved his goal, clearly doesn't need the money and has put his young family first. Sounds like he has got his priorities right imho.

    I did like the tweet exchange today with Hamilton when they talked about both being champions when they were younger.
     
  8. Gotta ask the question though , would he have retired if this year had gone the other way ??

    :thinking:

    I think so - family or not he hasn`t got Hamiltons will to win . If there was a chance of a good result he`d push but as for back of the grid wins he wasn`t anything close . Not taking anything away , he is after all world champion but the car won it for Rosberg - put him in a Red Bull or Ferarri and he`s struggle , as their (better ??) drivers have .....

    :hattip:
     
  9. I reckon he knows deep down that he's not as good as Lewis and that this year was probably a one off where just about everything dropped into place to enable him to become World Champion. Fair play to him, better to quit at the pinnacle of your chosen sport than spend the rest of your career going through the motions (I'm referring to you Kimi Raikonnen)!

    I like the screen shot of Toto Wolffs missed calls on his phone which Mercedes AMG posted.

    Bottas is the logical choice & Williams take Wehrlein with a vastly reduced cost or preferably free engine supply.

  12. Makes sense... do we want fireworks? Would be good to answer the question of Lewis vs Vettel or Lewis vs Alonso in equal cars!

    Hamilton will want a #2 driver, not someone who is his equal ( or better ).

    I don't think that Toto, Niki or the Daimler board want to have the aggravation of a HAM/ALO or a HAM/VET combination.
     
  16. I like the Bottas choice - but it would be good to see Di Resta back again.
     
  17. He had that this year..:)
