As much as I think Verstappen is a huge breath of fresh air in F1 his non appearance at the team picture at the end of the race for Ricciardo's win was pretty poor.

When Lewis and Rosberg were basically wanting to kill each other they still stayed and took part in all media duties and more importantly were in the team photo's

Clear has the same temper as his his father when things are not going his way which is a very bad thing.

I think he left the circuit mid race after the car packed up. He neglected his media obligations and the FIA fined him 25k (euros).

I guess he's learning that F1 isn't all fun and games. Can't help but think the speculation over him no longer being happy at Red Bull has some truth to it..

Can't really blame him too much. His car seems to rival Alonso's for reliability.

The Red bull has not been great but surely not as bad as the McLaren.

As least when it is going he can fight for the win biggrin

Red Bull have completed the fewest racing laps of any team so far this season.

Fewest laps, and fewest KM too, yes.

The Renault F1 team aren't that all that far ahead of McLaren either.

Interesting. So McLaren have completed more then. Not sure I'd class them as racing laps tbh though.

Maybe the reason he is a bit pissed off is because he and Danny Ric had certain performance clauses in their contract this season. If 2 of the clauses were hit then they would have to stay and honour their contract at Red Bull.

  • The first is that the team must provide ‘a winning car’.
  • The second that the team must finish in the top three in the Constructors’ Championship.
  • The third that the driver must finish in the top five in the Drivers’ Championship.
So Clause 2 was always going to be hit. But now clause 1 has been hit (technically even if it was a lucky win).

Maybe Max and his Dad Jos were sniffing around other teams but now they will need the team interested to stump up a buyout clause (probably in the tens of millions) to move Max away from Red Bull.

I very much doubt any team in the paddock would not want to have Verstappen in their car for 2019/2020.

Alonso keeps stating that their are top seats available for 2018 so you just never know what is going on.

If Max was to go "which I very much doubt" I am sure Red Bull would fill his shoes with Sainz.

Martin Brundle said something along the lines of this during commentary "All those fans in the stands looking good wearing orange. Will be interesting to see them all wearing orange and red soon"

I'm guessing it's an slightly open secret that he might be moving to Ferrari for next year then? Or does he know something we don't.

Lewis can breathe a sigh of relief. Max will stay with RB next year.

There's no way in hell we'll see seb and max in the same team. especially within a team that has ALWAY had a no1/no2 driver lineup.

I guess that depends on what Vettel's contract stipulated about his say on other drivers. I am sure that Marchionne will not let Max slip through his fingers though...
