Now, if someone had Daniel Ric's back, psychologically I mean, it would have been interesting to see how Dan versus Max could have played out.

After the crash at Baku in 2018, I think the powers that be at Red Bull had thought it had played out and that there would just be more of the same, if both drivers continued with the team.

Ricciardo himself said he was disappointed with the teamís conduct during and after. He said it could have been avoided if Max had just let him through as he was clearly faster and the team seemed not to realise that

It's not easy to rise driving a Force India / Racing Point. Yet Checo Pťrez scored multiple podiums, unlike teammates Nico HŁlkenberg and Esteban Ocon. And last season he finished fourth with a win and a second place finish, beating RIcciardo, Sainz, Albon, Leclerc and Norris.

Perez has always been a littler underrated for me. Letís face it in terms of tyre management there are very few better than him. He should be the perfect back up to Max

I think RB would be extremely happy if Perez delivered what Webber did.

In fact I'd say that's exactly why he is in that seat.

Exactly, they need someone not only who can back up Max, but also step up to the plate when Max hits trouble. Something that Albon was only able to do occasionally

Why oh why wouldn't Red Bull just buy Bottas off Mercedes. Or clone him from a used hanky. OK, I admit it is rather a long term strategy but it is basically sound.

Maybe because Merc still see Bottas as a valuable asset, especially with Lewis' contract talks ongoing.

Really, why buy Bottas? Does well enough as second fiddle in a Merc, but in my mind, there is nothing that stands him out as a better bet than Checo, IMO....

i like the cloning part...it's the choosing of Bottas to clone part which i find less sound!
