AIUI the offers on the table for 2019 were Renault and McLaren, and he went with the money.
You weren't already clear on that?Sainz really needs to get his act together, otherwise he is going to be a clear number 2 driver this season.
Wont be Ferrari: https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/formula1/61174774Lewis is far from finished
But the car is piss poor - and he won’t be here next season IF things don’t change.
I think he’s had some bad luck this season to be fair. But even then he should only be fighting for 5th and 6th at best.
I can see him having a crack elsewhere next season. Maybe Ferrari? If Sainz continues to through away the best chance he has had in his career
The Teams which own the engines, tend to have the best car with that engine, so I think its unlikely he would opt to join Aston Martin or Haas.
The question isn't whether Merc will have the strongest car available to Hamilton... I can't imagine Alpine or any of the Merc customers having a better package all around than Merc, so that's almost irrelevant. It's about how the team will support Russell and/or what Hamilton perceives that means for his chances of being WDC again.We're 4 races in to a very long season. If Mercedes get their act together and begin to understand their car then there is no reason why they cannot be back at the top in 2023.
I have no doubts that if ther Mercedes was at the front of the field we would be seeing a different Lewis Hamilton to the one we are seeing right now.Unless Merc are truly dominant 2014-2017 style they won't be in a position to allow their drivers to race for more than the very first few races of the season; otherwise even with a car that's a tenth quicker they'll still lose the WDC to a team who have nominated a #1 driver. On present form it'd be Russell getting that support, not Hamilton.
