    There’s a bit of fortune in his lead of the championship. I don’t think he’s ready for F1 yet, not to say he won’t get there. That said, if he wins the championship then he’ll probably get a seat, maybe take Kimi’s or Giovonazzi place. I think it’s about time Kimi retires. He’s got nothing left to give F1 from what I can see.

    Fortune is an important ingredient in winning. You cannot begrudge a person for enjoying a moment of providence. If Mick wins the F2 championship, he would have proved that he is ready for f1 and would be deserving of a seat. Obviously, this is going to put some pressure on Leclerc and Sainz to perform at a high level to maintain their seats.

    Time will tell. My main fear is that a move to F1 now is too early for him and that, while he might have the talent, he’ll crash and burn in F1 because he made the step too early and that’s definitely something I don’t want to see happening to him. I think the best from him, based on the performances we’ve seen from him, would be to win the F2 championship next year after another year developing and then make the step to F1.

    I think he would need to leave the F2 championship after he has won it. That would mean he would either have to step up into F1 or do formula E or other forms of racing. I think a few years at Alfa Romeo would be the right move for him. There would be no pressure involved while at the same time developing his experience. A seat directly in Ferrari would burn him out. That l defo agree.

    Yes, he has to leave F2 if he wins it but that’s why I’d rather see win it and leave F2 next year, get another year under his belt. If he wins this year he’ll end up in F1 but I still think it’d be too early. I’d be happy to be proved wrong though.

    I'm anxious to see how the three lads do in their FP1 sessions.

    Ferrari have some very exciting up and coming junior drivers. All three drivers have impressed me.

    It's unfortunate that Mick's FP1 session got washed out. But I was so glad to see that he was there to give Lewis one of Michael's old helmets. Very classy move by the family. Reminded me of when the Senna family gave Lewis one of Ayrton's old helmets.

    I'm not sure how things will play out for Callum Ilott, but I look for Mick to get a seat at Alfa Romeo.
