    Oh well Toto, you've got a driver who has won 5 of the last 6 WDC's, you've also got a driver who's slower than your star driver and incapable of beating him over a season. It's pretty easy to team order Bottas, "Valterri, please lap around 1m48.8 delta so that you don't get track position ahead of Lewis", but that sort of team order on Leclerc is not going to work, and not to mention extremely unfair since Leclerc, who only had 21 race experience when he got promoted from Alfa to Ferrari, out win-pole-podium-scored Vettel.

    So it's not really unusual, it's pretty simple actually. I mean you could've easily replaced Bottas with Max, but you didn't and it was quite understandable. But that's not the case here at Ferrari, Leclerc is not a obedient butler like Bottas, he is an exceptional talent and future world champion. When the choice is between Leclerc and Vettel, Leclerc is the obvious answer. Just like when it is Max vs Bottas as Hamilton's teammate, Bottas is the obvious answer.

    Ferrari is the mother of all " Rubenization! " Todt. Ross, Shumy ! Max is #1 @ R Bull, that's what he wanted. @ Merc it's Luis' car not him that's winning. Bottas has no chance against that car. It drives itself to the checker flag. He still managed to finish 2nd place. Seb!! Where were you?
    Bottas did 7 wins, 11 poles, 36 podiums 878 pts. so far with Merc. Another great car , I guess is the reason. The races can't come back soooon enough! I can't wait for Charles, Lewis{car}, and Max to fight to the end for WCC !

    So Vettel, the man himself, pretty much confirmed today that, he had received zero contract extension offer from Ferrari. Ferrari never showed any interest of signing him for another year or two, there wasn't even a single offer from them to Vettel.

    So, Turrini, the so called "Ferrari Insider", posted some fake rumors to get some clicks for his fake news blog. I hope people here will soon realize that Turrini isn't a Ferrari insider, and will stop posting his blog-nonsense.

    Yes, both things are contradictory. On one hand you come out and say Vettel is in Pole position for the second seat and then there is no contract to offer

    Binotto's pay check is for sure a big one! $50 million pay to Seb had to in some way by someone in Ferrari be compensated for; at least verbally. That's what happened. In a quiet place far from any engine noise Binotto was told what to say pro Seb . Charles made it tough as all hell for them. I'm hopping for Charles to fight big time up front this season regardless of the words Down force and tire choices.
