Maybe... the story about Vettel to Mercedes was leaked by the Vettel camp to improve Vettel's bank balance for 2018? Maybe?

Apparently, it was from a source close to Niki Lauda. It certainly does seem strange that Ferrari has no drivers signed for next year.

Ferrari can pretty much have their pick of drivers. The lure of the red overalls is very strong, especially if they're on an upswing. I think Vettel will stay, and Sainz would be a very smart pick to partner him.

It's a non-story. Vettel will be at Ferrari for 2018.


What's the chances of Alonso joining Vettel at Ferrari next year? I think FA would do a marginally better job than KR.

I doubt a return is on the cards, and the Spaniard can't handle a competitive teammate. He'll stick it out at McLaren, go back to Renault or quit F1.

A marginally better job than KR?! I think you may want to change that to a marginally better job than Vettel (at least)

Sarcasm on my part. 100% agree with you there. I think if FA was in the Ferrari now he would be giving the Mercedes boys much more to worry about than Vettel.

On the subject of FA to Ferrari, apparently there was an approach from the FA camp. No further talk beyond that.

Aboutiboul waffling on about Alonso on gp.com, Utterings such as Fernando is part of the Renault family, has he still got commitment to F1, he knows where they are, and them being happy to continue development with Hulk and Palmer.

He does talk some bobbins that bloke!

The next big rumour to hit the streets is, Max Verstappen possibly going to Ferrari for 2018. I'm guessing here that Max will have to wait until near seasons end before activating a get out clause he has on his contract which is based on Red Bull's performance. It's the only way he can end his contract with Red Bull.
