Ferrari to confirm Vettel departure on Tuesday, German media claim

We didn’t see this coming, did we?

As an Aussie, I would like Ricciardo to have a chance in a decent car (though there are rumours that Ferrari’s car isn’t), but wouldn’t work as a number 2 driver.

Seems like I saw a rumor for Daniel to replace Sainz

Kind of felt it coming, ever since that crash at the '18 German GP. Still shocking though!

Really hoping for Ricciardo to get the seat, but like @ant_pruitt mentioned Sainz looking like a strong possibility. Several F1 pundits are talking about Ricciardo going after a McLaren seat, which supports Sainz to Ferrari. Ricciardo could do well at MCL considering they’ll be running the Merc PU soon.

I’ve always felt Ricciardo is a driver that can make the absolute most out of an aggressive chassis with his ultra-late braking and corner lunging style. RBR had that kind of chassis, Renault certainly didn’t have that, and I don’t necessarily feel like Ferrari does either, but McLaren might.

Regardless, it’s so refreshing to get a taste of the silly season!

Also - the BBC published a great article summarizing Vettel’s decline which included possibly my favorite driver comparison chart ever:

Well that was quick!

Quite early silly season …

What else is there to do when there’s no racing? :grinning:
