Mick Schumacher looking like he won't have his contract extended.

Thoughts? Another seat to add to the revolving door of drivers but this might spell the end of his F1 stint. Did he deserve the spot in the first place? Did he do enough to retain it?

I think he deserved his chance, he won in F2. He has always been a bit of a slower improver as indicative of his progression in F1. Which potential replacement would be better? Giovinazzi never impressed me really.

I'm not a huge Mick fan but I have seen some progress this year.

Is Daniel a realistic chance of going to Haas? Especially if Alpine somehow lands Gasly?

Rumours Latifi has also been told it's the end of the line for him too.

I think so - difficult to envision any other Ferrari-linked driver that may take the seat. Would he want to, though? And would Haas go that way?

How much of that is the car seeing some progress this year though?

Well they've had the crack at relative inexperience - perhaps they might want to go back to the elder statemen type in Daniel. In addition to that, it's widely mentioned that Daniel and America have a mutual love affair and perhaps that might be a good marketing opportunity for Haas.

They have Kevin Magnussen though as the senior talent.

I know Haas are keen to promote themselves as no longer relying on pay drivers but a bit of extra coin would not go astray.

I think that actually getting some points on the board and converting a decent starting position was a big moment for him.

See it as a fresh start for both parties and get some decent investment in their cars too. Gene also owns a property in the south west of wa so there’s another link back to Daniel.

Talk about overtakes yesterday, this is all I could find so far, as of the French GP



EDIT: Ok, found some live spreadsheets with the data that is up to date as of Spa from this reddit user: catchingisonething (u/catchingisonething) - Reddit
A Few Notes
  • This data does not include overtakes made on Lap 1 or the first lap of a standing restart.
  • On track moves for position only, not counting passes made in pits, lapped cars, cars unlapping, on cars off track or spun, team orders etc...

Italian Jesus is in line for it. Also doing some FP1 sessions in place of Mick this season.

So Hamilton may have broken his engine/gearbox when he crash landed haha. I hope Alonso gets asked what he thinks about that.

So Max has been appointed an Officer in the Order of Orange-Nassau by the Dutch King. Similar to how the British knight some of their citizens. His official title would now be Officer Max Verstappen (more info on the ranks etc can be found on the wiki page: Order of Orange-Nassau - Wikipedia)

So we now have Officer Max, Sir Lewis and Inspector Seb :sweatsmile:

Ferrari and Merc seeding doubt into redbulls spending cap credibility at the moment,, obviously they can't outright accuse them but are toeing the line on "we can't afford to rebuild the chassis"

Rumours are now circulating the grid they are using part of AlphaTauris cap .

Perhaps they could do it because unlike the other 2, porpoising wasn't a big an issue
