This has been bouncing around my head the last few days. It really seems an obvious choice.

Does he have the requisite points to earn a SuperLicense at this point? The last total I saw from the end of the 2017 season he was on 20 of the 40 needed. Winning F3 earned him 30 in 2018 to total 50 but he wouldn't have enough points next season as the 20 from F4 (German and Italian 2nd) expire. Now why he can't get his license this year and renew as a license holder I don't know, but I think he would have to be entered with a team and in a race weekend session. But if that I'm not sure at all, the FIA has some rules well hidden.

Apparently he does have an exit clause if Ferrari or Mercedes come knocking.

Taxi645 has a lot of promise if they can keep it on the circuit!
De Vries is going to Mercedes FE, so no Williams seat for him.

That was never goinig to happen anyway, at Williams or any other F1 team

Yes, he has a good chance of winning F2 but the field there is at best mediocre this year, he already is in his 3rd year and he has very little financial backers to get that Williams seat(the only team open to "pay drivers" atm).

and people who have won GP2/F2 in their 2nd or 3rd year have not realy been succesfull in F1 anyway: to name a few: Jolyon Palmer(3rd year), Stoffel Vandoorne(2nd year), Romain Grosjean(3rd),Pastor Maldonado(4th year)

And there's already a guy with a BOATLOAD of money ahead of him there and actually already has his foot in the door as the reserve driver so there wasn't really an opening there

I'll take a stab at the silliness: vettel out at Ferrari, but hulkenberg to replace him, not Ricciardo. Latifi in at Williams, for money reasons. Albon stays at red bull to start the year, at least. Pato o'ward busy accumulating points or whatever he needs to do to be put in a torro rosso by 2021, maybe late 2020 if gasly performs ghastly (sorry).

Still leaves Haas with an open spot that I can't think of who would fill it.

Mainly just wanted to put out there that hulkenberg at Ferrari would be like bottas at mercedes: a steady hand to accumulate points, pick up an occasional win, but not get in the way of the number 1 driver, which leclerc is proving capable of being.

But I also expect ferrari to wet the bed anyway, with multiple quality control issues and failures in strategy at key times, wasting yet another talent, like Alonso and vettel.

Shock to me too, when they have Hulkenberg as a perfectly good option.
Also reported on other websites, link below.... (even if the web sites like AUtosport are pretty much all interconnected nowadays and part of Zak Browns 'Motorsport Network' of digital motorsport stuff).
