He was class. Seen the highlights once on TV and knew more about F1 than people who’d worked in F1 for years.

And the one thing that is 'typical' is that the driver in the best car is not going to want to move anywhere else..... and why should he? To give someone else 'a turn'?
Well, Mercedes won't sign him for obvious reasons... except if Hamilton leaves the team, which won't happen either.

The problem is if Hamilton leaves, who would take his place? With Max and Charles locked in to their teams, they won’t get a seat. I guess Russell could, but he would need this season to get going so he could get more experience. Then again, his talent would probably shine through anyway.

Would Merc be able to get the best out of Seb though? Hmm...

Mercedes should try with a mediocre driver such as Hülkenberg or Norris in my opinion. They have won everything that's to win and I am 99 %ly sure that mediocre drivers can win with such a car too, also, if Lewis leaves, I believe Bottas is ready to fight for the title, since in 2019 he was runner-up and even lead the WC after the first four races.

I think the idea of Seb going to Merc is probably even more insane that Lewis going to Ferrari.....

Isn't that just a bit bizarre? Aside from the fact that I don't believe Norris is mediocre (nor The Hulk for that matter) why would Merc take a decision to put anyone other than the best driver available in their car if Hamilton was daft enough to leave?

Yeah, we probably would have the 2010-13 Seb again.

Vettel reminds me of Damon Hill. When everything is just right, it somehow multiplies his skill level. Vettel suited the V8s, and he had an amazing car. People do like to say "oh it's just the car", but Webber was far from incompetent and couldn't touch him.

He doesn't suit the V6s, and it allowed drivers like Ricciardo to rattle him. Not dissimilar to when F1 went to grooved tyres and thinner cars and Damon was off the boil. Managed the odd good result (usually in the wet, when the grooved tyres weren't a thing), but his driving style wasn't adapatable.

Vettel when things align ups his game to a level others can't match. Vettel when things aren't quite right, he becomes above average and that's about it.

Er? Really?

I don't see it personally. Right now, even if you put him in the best car, it depends on the competition.

Vettel will be an enigma. There’s no doubt he’s a great, as his four titles prove, but even so, I would hesitate to put him among the all time greats. He made mistakes in his early days, but then after he won his title, in the best car he seemed to be unstoppable. Then Ricciardo came along and the car didn’t suit Vettel, so he struggled. He redeemed himself going to Ferrari initially, but then after a season or two the mistakes crept in and he’s thrown away any hope of challenging Merc for the title. Just imagine what Alonso would have done in those three seasons with Ferrari
