    JK is 58 and not getting any younger, it had to happen at some stage and this timing gives a settling in period with Seb before the 2018 season.

    I'm not sure, but I can guess it's mostly because of his age. John Kennard is 58 years old now, being a codriver on top level is very demanding.

    Not a "splitting up". John is simply standing down from co-driving duties but staying with the team.
    Both have made no secret that John would step aside when the time was right and, as much as we all like to see JK in the car, it's been expected for some time.
    With Hayden always having been focussed on 2018 for a tilt at the title, they've obviously decided now is time to make the change to bring the new guy up to speed.
    Never do anything you wouldn't want to explain to a paramedic.

    Gabriele is a driver's driver, isn't he? He's been at it since the 80s and doesn't look to have any interest in slowing down. Contrast with someone like Nico Rosberg, who wins the title once and promptly retires.

    It's sort of like Jools Holland vs Don McLean.

    yeah

    "The other thing is the brakes - we don't have enough.

    "The pads were running too hot, there's not enough cooling on the car.

    "If you look at the other [cars], you can see more brake cooling [vents]. This is [a lack of] experience from us."
