Williams announcement at 15:00 -

Its probably about retaining Alex Albon for next season and announcing Logan Sergeant as Latifi's replacement.

A surprisingly dull announcement by recent standards by resigning Albon. Surprised he went for multi year deal and wasn't looking to move back up the grid as his performances have been pretty handy.

A multi-year contract? Is this a bit silly or has he been released from his Red Bull contract?

Who do you think out of the current line up of F1 drivers will be out of F1 next season and looking for employment in another series?

Goatifi and Danny Ric

We have a good idea of should do by now how good Kevin Magnussen is so where does this leave Mick Schumacher?

K-Mag is a far better benchmark to compare on how good MS really is and in his second season Mick really needs to start delivering, he needs that big result and to consistently be up there matching K-Mag every weekend otherwise he could be another one looking around for other employment at end of season

Does anyone think that Mick Schumacher is good enough for another season with Haas?

Added to this I was unaware that Oscar's contract with Alpine ended 31st July but he is still listed as reserve driver. Looks like Fernando Alonso has fallen out big time with Alpine's team bosses, he also posted a thumbs up videoafter reading Oscar's tweet on Tuesday. 😂

edit - not contract, there's a rumour that within that contract was an agreement that Alpine needed to assure Piastri a F1 drive this season or next season by that date 31st July 2022 or he could be a free agent to talk to another team. The plan was initially for Alonso to sign for another season and Piastri would be loaned to Williams in 2023. All neat and tidy, except that Fernando wasn't happy with a one year deal and looks likely Alpine didn't budge, so when the news that Vettel was retiring the timing couldn't have been better. There's obviously been some friction between Alonso and the Alpine management for some time and he seems to be enjoying the carnage that has kicked off in his wake, starting with that rather panicked announcement on promoting Piastri to the race seat.
 
This will probably burn for a few weeks until Daniel Ricciardo decides on his plans for next season and or we get an announcement from McLaren on their driver line up in 2023.

I like the idea of Fernando the rogue driver, no team orders just driving for himself and the guys who work on his car. it will be funny if he scores a podium for Alpine just to show Otmar what could have been.
