He knows how Red Bull works. If he can't beat Max (which he can't), then he'll get dropped within a year or so to make way for the next driver. Gasly. Who will suffer a similar fate soon, to be replaced by someone else...and the cycle will continue. And one day, when Max loses his touch, he'll face the same fate.

The argument against is that it could mean a championship is decided on the saturday

I can understand his motivation
He could be number 2 in a team that looked to be on the way down or he could be number one at a factory team on its way up and build a team focused on him

The extra$$ would have helped too

However if he stays with renault next year and beyond and they dont improve drastically he has waved goodbye at ever being champ

Not necessarily, there is that extra point for fastest lap.

Well done Max, finally getting his first pole in F1. Seems Mercedes finally have a genuine threat which is good for the sport. Good from Bottas too, although he will be on the dirty side of the grid. Good to see both McLarens up there again and Russell, what a lap. He's definitely outperforming that car

Driver A leads Driver B by 26 points going into the last race of the seasons.
Driver A sets pole, and his lead extends to 27.

Title decided on the Saturday.

That doesn't bother me.

The principle of it is about the race is the one I would like to stick too. Qualifying is already important as F1 is boring and you can't overtake. Perhaps when they improve the racing so that grid position doesn't matter and no one tries in qualifying because of it we can have it to encourage competitive running!

Fair enough, there is that scenario but I can think of one where the extra point for fastest lap, could clinch the title.

Why is there a grandstand full of marshals? Shouldn’t they be by the track?

That was a clean start and Verstappen leads into Turn 1. Bottas made a bit of a meal of that and goes down to 4th, with a damaged front wing.
