    I think that's highly unlikely. The last driver they recruited without any previous history with Red Bull was Webber. RBR giving a drive to Pérez would also mean letting go either Albon, Gasly or Kvyat and not repromoting race-winner Gasly to a RBR seat.

    I see Otmar said Lance deserves a seat beside Vettel. Hilarious- Lance remains unworthy of a F1 seat. Regardless of what he does Nico Hulkenberg out qualified him. He should have been kicked out of the team for that alone. Daddy’s boy got what Daddy wanted.

    Otmar has to kiss the arse of the new boss. The quickest way out of a job is to say the opposite. That said, l am kind of glad for Vettel. It would be interesting to see how Aston Martin measures up to the demands of a four time world champion. As Vettels expectations are quite high, Aston Martin would need to step up in every department to reach to level that Vettel is used to. Which is a very good thing for Aston Martin, as they would be pushed up a level or two in the efficiency of their operations as a consequence.

    The real question is can they hang on to Vettel? Can they give him the car he needs to get in the mix of the sharp end of the grid? With the new regulations coming, one would expect Aston Martin to be right up there with the big teams.

    How many of us think Perez was fairly treated by Racing Point? Loyalty and dedication is rarely rewarded in the heady business world of F1. Even when his performance is as good as they can expect.

    What's the point of asking this question? Remember Buemi and Alguersuari?

    Neither Buemi or Alguesari were spectacular to be fair.

    For drivers, F1 is an unforgiving affair.
