    Do you know if Kimi called Mercedes? Other than what is said over the press that well, let's face it, coming off Merc's mouth means nothing?
    Same, btw goes for any driver. Ferrari or otherwise.

    So seriously, why Kimi? Specially after delivering so well for the team this year?

    Deflecting... :) (answering a question with a question.. really ;))
    And maybe Seb did. But one has to admit that Kimi did as well, and he had a great season all things considered.

    So do you have a problem with Kimi ? if so why? Is it the magnums? lol

    BREAKING NEWS: World champion Nico Rosberg retires from Formula One

    Reports suggest that Bottas is the one who lands up in Merc. I respect him as a driver but such a bland personality & that too against Hamilton :D

    Bland is quite good considering the possible future of Ferrari.

    Bottas would be a good number 2 for them.

    Bottas is a good driver, but I'm not sure if he's capable of challenging Lewis.

    I think with the timing, that will be enough for Merc's brass. A solid driver with good experience - will be an asset with good feedback on the car & should score decent points to keep them, at worst, in the thick of any battle for WCC. Honestly, I don't think they will lose their advantage though it may shrink relative to RB & Ferrari.
    And if winning is mainly down to the car as many believe, he could challenge LH. If he does though, I don't know if he could do it consistently.
    Forza Ferrari !

    Well, that does it for me - Alonzo to Merc for sure!

    Found this gem on F1technical.com forum, absolutely brilliant:

    I can't believe that nobody has suggested that Mercedes put Lewis Hamilton in Nico Rosberg's vacated seat. Then he'll get a more reliable car!

    Bottas seems the perfect fit in retain performance and not bother lewis. He has the personality of a log, so Lewis will still be the popular one, and the better driver. I rate Bottas close to Rosberg but not quite there, so happy hamilton. He also escapes a fight with Alonso, a fight which I think he would lose in equal cars, but him knowing the car for several years would have helped somewhat.
    Mercedes get a decent-good driver to get points and fight for wins, which Wehrlein is not a certainty of doing yet. Wolf is very close to Bottas so a great fit there. Bottas is a team player and a good defensive driver, his strongest attribute, with fast qualy Mercedes he could keep guys behind him.

    If Bottas goes to Merc and dreams of being treated equal to Lewis, he should for sure have stayed with Clair as Williams #1 driver. He will probable be allowed to drive Lewis' car and Lewis Nico's !

    Why not rate Bottas as Rosberg's equal? What has Rosberg ever done? I don't remember Rosberg beating Lewis in one direct duel. Lewis literally wiped the floor with Nico in direct battles.

    No truer words were ever spoken! Nico at least agrees with that and knew enough to get out. It would be next to impossible for Merc to hook him up again!
