    With the talk of the merit of Bottas on the other threads. Without knowing exactly how the contracts stands. If I were Ferrari, I'd consider poaching Bottas for 2020 to replace Raikkonen.

    He's a good second driver. Fast enough without rocking the boat of the number one.

    Kimi to drive for Sauber next year, so the 2019 Ferrari seat is now up for grabs. Will no doubt be announced shortly (Leclerc)

    Kimi likely to finish off his career where he started.

    Two years at Sauber as well!
    I think this will show us the hard charging Kimi of the Lotus days. Great stuff. And well done Leclerc too.

    If you told me at the start of this year that in 2019 we would see Raikkonen at Sauber, Leclerc at Ferrari and Ricciardo at Renault I'd have asked for what you were smoking because it was clearly powerful shit.

    Another highly rated Brittish junior in F1 next year.
    Probably means no seat for Ocon next year. Shame

    Is this linked to the Neale trade?

    Ah yes, a memorable day for the BF motor board. Where one of us was at the Malaysian GP.

    Yeah well there were a number of races Andrea de Cesaris could've won. The previous record holder, Jean Pierre Jarier, had a couple of races where he smoked everyone only for the car to break while a mile in the lead.

    Alexander Albon is the final name to add to the list of drivers for 2019:

    Mercedes - Lewis Hamilton, Valtteri Bottas
    Ferrari - Sebastian Vettel, Charles Leclerc
    Red Bull Racing - Max Verstappen, Pierre Gasly
    Renault - Daniel Ricciardo, Nico Hülkenberg
    Haas - Romain Grosjean, Kevin Magnussen
    McLaren - Carlos Sainz Jr., Lando Norris
    Force India* - Sergio Pérez, Lance Stroll
    Sauber - Kimi Räikkönen, Antonio Giovinazzi
    Toro Rosso - Daniil Kvyat, Alexander Albon
    Williams - Robert Kubica, George Russell

    * likely to be renamed

    I actually find the Toro Rosso driver line up to be pretty underwhelming, although after being dropped from the Red Bull driver program in 2012 Albon has improved and is coming off 3rd place in the Formula 2 series this year.

    So we will finally see the Schumacher name return to GP weekends in 2019 as Mick Schumacher has been confirmed to have a drive with Prema Racing next year in F2

    A logical step up for Schumacher. Schumacher has been associated with Prema since 2016 in F4 and F3, winning the F3 title this year. Prema have been competitive in F2 with Charles Le Clerk taking the F2 Championship in 2017 and DeVries finishing 4th with the team this year.

    Schumacher already has the required 40 points for an FIA Super License (required for F1) due to finishing 2nd in F4 in 2016 (10 points) and winning F3 this year (30 points). He would need to finish 6th or better in F2 to keep his eligibility for a Super License.

    I wouldn't be surprised if he did some tyre testing for an F1 team in 2019.
