I see that Lance Stroll tested positive for coronavirus after the Nurburgring weekend, same for his father.

Grosjean to leave Haas at the end of the season.

A few people have said Williams are punting Russell and bringing in Perez as they need his sponsorship money, and George will go to Haas.

That seems pretty unlikely to me to be honest.

If he is still a Mercedes junior then Russell won't be going to a Ferrari powered team. Haas will have at least one Ferrari junior in the car next year, you would imagine the other seat will go to someone who is bringing money which Russell doesn't beyond, presumably, a discount on Mercedes engines.

Isn't part of Russell being there a cheap engine?

I feel quite bad for Grosjean because I do like him, but he never really shook off his wreckless reputation, this year played into that with a lot of daft stuff.

Magnusson can gtf, dross and acts like he's a world beater.

Prediction;

Hulk to RB for 1 season
Albon to back to AT
Tsunoda replacing Kvyiat
MSC to AR
Ilott and Perez to Haas

Mazepin to win F2 next year.

Rumour has him replacing Ocon!
I'm not sure he'd want to go back to a RB team focused on another young driver?

Alonso and Gasly would be a decent pairing imo


Gasly???

No surprise Grosjean has gone, should have been booted last year. Magnussen is perhaps a bit unlucky.

Assuming it will be folk with money coming in or someone from the Ferrari Academy. Mazepan and Schumacher probably. Perez would be a decent option though as he has a fair bit of backing.

Very much doubt hass will go for 2 rookie’s so i think perez or the hulk will get 1 seat. Think schumacher is more likely to partner kimi at alfa romeo.

This track looks a bit nuts, really interested to see how they get on with all the blind crests/corners. The alternative turn 1 might have been better for the race though

How TF can they be having another drain cover bollox-up after Baku?

Anybody know what happens if there's no qualifying possible?
