He hasn’t been on top of things throughout but he’s had a pole and a win on merit so I think he’s doing well, and seems to have clicked with the car in Baku.

Here’s how I see this weekend playing out for Bottas move.

1. Toto makes awkward trackside announcement ?
2. Williams make announcement ?
3. Russell caught writing driving tips for Bottas on inside of cockpit ?

There's so much noise from the clickbate sites now it's obvious it's a open secret the swap is on. Makes sense to announce it at the British GP but it can only be ignored for so long.

That's a fair call.

I'm impressed by how quickly Perez is getting upto speed.
Yeah, he's only been driving F1 car 10 years.
So what is Ricciardo's excuse this season ?

Might also be he has better engineers around him, who knows? Loads of possible variables.

Probably a lot of similar faces to who Ricciardo had around him when he was in Perez's seat scratchchin

Maybe Daniel isn't quite as good as Daniel keeps telling us Daniel is rolleyes

If you and Sparta listened to Daniel this year then Sparta would already know the answer to his question and you'd know that Daniel has repeatedly told the world's media this year that it's not the car it's him.

Daniel wouldn't have had multi-million dollar contracts with three big teams based only on Daniel telling us how good Daniel is.

Say something interesting, gets articles written that contain the words "red bull", job done!

Doesn't mean he actually cares or even really has an opinion.

Yeah, but at least we can definitely rule out Red Bull and Alpha Tauri for Bottas in 2022 hehe
