I think bottas has closed the Mercedes door. He's as quick as Hamilton. Didn't have the chance to prove it in the race today as he was stuck behind vettel but in clean air he was instantly able to match Hamilton's times in the first stint. Why would a team drop Hamilton and a future driver of seemingly equal capability. Even lewis couldn't overtake verstappen who was on 20 plus lap older tyres so bottas had no chance of overtaking a faster Ferrari on equal tyres.

I cant see Ferrari dropping Raikkonen now either, as he is doing well. Should have had pole position in Baku and should have finished in front of Vettel yesterday. Little gremlins are bugging him but he is significantly doing better than last year. Cant see why Ferrari wouldnt want to keep him on to have LeClerc taking his seat a year and a half on from now.

Woking or Renault arent real options in my book. Cant see Renault wanting to switch Sainz and Ricci and Woking could have Stoffel, Alonso and Norris to fill the seat. So no, I cant see him joining there either.

So that leaves Red Bull. Plus, he is a Red Bull guy since over a decade. So he could be somewhat drawn to Red Bull simply because it is and has been his home away from Perth for so long now.

Wow, you think Ricciardo will drive in F1 in 2019! Maybe if he finds some sponsors, Sauber will sign him after being destroyed by Verstappen. Otherwise, I doubt.

Anderis take a look at the 2018 WDC standings so far, it really does not look like Verstappen is destroying Ricciardo, in fact Ricciardo is 14 points ahead of Verstappen.

I'm guessing that Danny Ric may actually have no choice at all but to stay at RBR. As has already been mentioned, Bottas is doing very well at Mercedes, iceman is doing a good job at Ferrari and Ferrari like good solid number 2s. Renault is probably too many years away from producing a championship contending car and McLaren, well they aren't the McLaren of old (seems like a familiar story to Williams really), plus they have some very promising new blood coming through.

Anyone who knows anything about F1 and isn't blinded by fanboi-itis can see Danny Ric is one of the very top drivers, but current thinking seems to suggest that teams would rather hold onto a driver lineup (ala Ferrari for the past 3 years) when they could have made a change and chosen not to do that team continuity rules. Or they only promote from within the family ala RBR, Merc and McLaren.

So, Ric is most likely (in this little black ducks opinion) going to have to stay at RBR even if they get the struggling Honda engines next year.

Looks like the poll is showing an even split at the moment between Red Bull & Ferrari...Interesting.

One other thing that also interests me a lot is will Kimi Räikkönen retire from Formula 1 racing before he is 40 years old,....He is getting close to 40 now will he retire or will he go on past 40 years of age?

To be honest I really can't see Kimi racing in Formula 1 when he is past 40 years of age.

In stark contrast to your other one this is a really good poll!

I like Kimi he's a cool guy and takes no bullshit but I feel like he's been wasting a spot In a competitive car for a very long time. Just look at all those wins he's scored... oh wait. About 10 other drivers on the grid could do a far better job. Whether that's Ferrari screwing him or not I can't say but that only comes about as a consequence of him being so slow anyway.

Yes this year he's been closer but he will fade yet again as the gap to Vettel gets bigger.

Yep I agree Mike I think Kimi is living on borrowed time in F1 he will soon be gone,...by by Kimi (Sm150)

Well that's what everyone else was saying about Massa before he joined us. So Ferrari is renowned for it's stubbornness to replace a clear number two driver.

Yes but what about when they keep losing the constructors.

Hamilton and Bottas haven't been damaging each other's casings this year. They would be 1 2 in the championship if not for a puncture with 6 points between them. Meanwhile Kimi would slip further and further back as Ferrari desperately try to upset Mercedes using his car.

Ferrari will be their own worst enemy in this year's constructors championship. Mercedes have 2 bulletproof drivers. Even with the better car in 4 of the last 5 races they are trailing Mercedes already.

Bottas is definitely getting on to terms with Lewis and he's a good team guy, doesn't make waves, doesn't make mistakes, can't see why they would drop him.

Ferrari has its own pool of preferred drivers, but if there were a slot, would Ricciardo want to be a No 2?

Surely it's McLaren who are short of a star at the moment. Or even two if Freddo decides to go for the permanent deck chair.
