'If Wehrlein is forced out of Sauber by Leclerc or Gio, could he replace Massa at Williams? Mercedes tie-up could work out.'

He basically said it won't happen because of Martini, who require one of their drivers to be 25(?) or something.

Are there places where you can't drink if you're under 25 or something?

I don't think there are, I would've thought the maximum would be 21? In which case, Wehrlein would be fine to drive.

I just hope Crofty's wrong and Wehrlein can go to Williams. It looks very likely he will be pushed out of Sauber with the new Ferrari deal, so it makes sense for him to replace Massa, with the Mercedes engine partnership.

I guess the only other opportunity is Force India, but that's only if Perez goes to Ferrari, which at the moment is very touch and go.

If only his last name was Bond, his age wouldn't matter then. I like your idea though.

And not to mention that Force India really doesn't like Wehrlein.


I'd laugh if Perez goes to Ferrari though. He started off as a Ferrari Academy Driver, being its first graduate to Formula One, then he left the Academy in order to join McLaren out of all teams, only to get kicked out after a year and rediscover himself at Force India, which, over the years, has started to look more and more like a Mercedes-B outfit, especially with the pink-livery they share with the DTM-factory team, only to leave that team and join Ferrari after all, therefore becoming the first (former) Academy-driver to actually drive for the Scuderia. It would cap off an amazing journey.

Well that's the end for Palmer then, well it probably was already but yea..... He obviously has talent as he's a GP2 champion, but its been a disaster for him.

Thought he went to Sauber then to McLaren?

So Di Resta is probably going to drive the Williams, if he beats Lance that will be embarrassing.

Edit: It's now official, looking forward to this.

Paul's got nothing to lose, if he doesn't beat Stroll it's not a problem, he's never driven the car before. If he beats him then he makes Stroll look terrible. Win win!

He certainly has more talent than some on the grid, so it's nice to see him get a chance, albeit for 1 race. It's shame this didn't happen at the last race (not that I wish Massa ill) but at the British GP it would have been even more special.

He did. He was still a Ferrari Academy-driver while at Sauber, it was one of the reasons he got that seat at the time. He stepped out of the academy (and Sauber) in order to jump to McLaren.

So much for the rest of the season being a Mercedes domination-borefest. You bunch of pansies.
If Hamilton grabs the pole and the win, I'll need you to state that I'm not going to win the lottery to get that reverse psychology-magic.

That one Max-kid. Sigh. Too young. Too innocent to be aware that Q1 and Q2 are there to break hearts.

If Honda could get their shit together McLaren would have a car that could challenge the leaders, they looked great in the corners. 

Nice touch from Sky to play a Linkin Park song.

Definitely. It is heartbreaking, really. You got Nando, the promising Vandoorne, what seems to be a chassis that can challenge at the top, but an engine that *actually* broke in half in Spain.

Getting out of the Honda deal would be the best news all year for McLaren.

I muted it. Can't stand Linkin Park.

Just to keep this on topic, it was awesome seeing PDR in the Williams. At the rate he improved over his few quali laps I wouldn't be surprised to see him finish ahead of Stroll tomorrow.

Haha when we drive to Silverstone I know what music to play now :p

Yea he did great, in a few laps he improved so much. I can also see him finishing ahead of Stroll, that's if his fitness holds up at one of the toughest tracks.

The moment any Linkin Park comes out of your speakers is the moment I open the door and get out. Regardless of the speed we're going at lol. I'll get the ambulance the rest of the way to Silverstone.

I hope it does man. From what he was saying talking to the Sky guys after quali though he's surprised that it's less physical than he was expecting so that bodes well!
