  • It looks pretty likely that George would be faster in the car than Valtteri, and maybe even faster than Lewis. Problem is that would then split the points more evenly between two drivers, and with Max winning most of the points for Red Bull, that would make both George and Lewis less likely to win the championship. Certainly from Lewis’ point of view he’s happy to have a teammate who is prepared to sacrifice himself for him, which Valtteri has recently shown he is very clearly prepared to do. I’m pretty sure it’s down to Lewis that Valtteri still has a seat. Lewis is on balance losing to Max this season but is still a pretty good contender for the championship, so if he says to Toto that he wants to keep Valtteri as his teammate, then I’m sure that’s what’ll happen. If he does win his eighth title this year, I’m sure Toto will turn round to him and tell him it’s time to give George a drive.

  • Give it time I guess. He got three decent podiums in the last three races, and although today was dumb people are acting like he doesn't deserve F1.

  • Some good points made but I have concerns that everyonecis setting George up for failure. Based on what everyone has said, my expectation would be that if George were to move upbthen anything less than a championship in his first year would be a disappointment. How many times have we seen “dream teams “ put together to only flop in the end. If George can’t move up and be a good team player then he doesn’t deserve the place.
