Sainz for me.

side note...bit disappointed in Ferrari/Leclerc for not putting in a better effort in trying to beat Max to 3rd overall on the drivers table. perhaps outside their control/no extra life left in the engine etc but still a disappointing end to a season full of disappointments from the red squad.

There were some good performances all the way down the field, as there usually are in the last race – either for off-season bragging rights or trying to impress present/future employers. But Lewis was in a class of his own, dominating the entire weekend – 17sec is a rare gap between 1st and 2nd these days. If Merc is as good as this next year, Lew will overhaul MS on race wins and equal him on WDCs. His dilemma then will be whether to stick with the team for 2021 – with all the uncertainties of the new regs – to try to get that tantalising 8th title, or swan off to Maranello, which he doubtless intends doing at some stage. But there are worse problems to have...

Right now its a no-brainer. Even with regs changes, why would you leave Mercedes (a team which as a driver he effectively 'owns') for the complete uncertainty and inconsistency of Ferrari? He'd probably be better off going to RB than Ferrari. I don't see him going anywhere until he has the 8th WDC in the bag.

Absolutely. He has a far better shot at getting that 8th WDC with Mercedes, despite the reg changes in 2021, than with Ferrari. Driving for Ferrari has not been such a great career move, firstly for Alonso and subsequently Vettel.

how much is Ferrari willing to pay to prevent a Merc driver from breaking Schumi's record? how much will Merc be willing to pay to ensure that its their driver who does?

good thing for LH that driver salaries will not be part of the proposed 2021 budget cap!

Quite a lot I should think and they would need to improve vastly, before Hamilton jumps ship.

You have to be totally taken in by the glamour/hype/legend to go to Ferrari now. When Schumacher did it, Brawn, Todt and Byrne were there too. They weren't really "Ferrari". By the time Alonso and then Vettel joined, Ferrari was Italian again, and you've seen the result.

Hard to imagine what motivates the superstar athlete. Highly skilled, ambitious, and successful people often set lofty goals for themselves and the allure of turning Ferrari around and becoming true legend in the process may be too much to resist.

Presumably with 7 WDC by 2021, perhaps he sees achieving the 8th with Ferrari as the next step and his chance to cement the greatest of all time position.

Talent and ego right!

Nope, I can’t see LH ever joining the red team. He’ll retire before that happens....

Hopefully by the time he does or doesn’t no one will remember I made the above statement!

Interesting that the DOTR votes are spread more widely for a change. Suggests several decent drives?

I'm a bit mixed on that one TBH. I can easily see the honourable part of Hamilton going for 7, getting that, and bowing out as an equal of Schumacher.

I can just as easily see him going for 10, just because he can.

What I can't see, ever, is Hamilton in a Ferrari.

That's a statement that'll come back to bite me!

Remember that Ferrari had the better car in 2018 but Vettel’s mistakes and Hamilton’s lack of them probably decided the title.
