Unless Kvyat has serious backing I doubt Williams would really want him.

bathurst77 should be qualifying in the top 10 on the gridbathurst77 should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
Im still thinking gorgeous george to merc.. bottas to mclaren, my man dan to williams or out of f1

yes i know dan has a multiyear contract but there are always ways to break f1 contracts and altho i love the guy.. he is struggling most of this year.

given merc give mcl engines and toto says he will find a good seat for bottas, if he rang Andreas and made him an offer he couldnt refuse.

I think mcl would rather like bottas in their car, and bottas might accept a macl seat if he is #1 or equal driver, he must be sick of being number 2 in team and his pay packet isnt that huge, so a bump would be nice, Im sure

I cant see Bottas liking a williams seat

I have also been thinking the same about Bottas to McLaren. Don't think it will happen but could be Norris to Mercedes and Russell to McLaren.

As we all say "contracts are meant to be broken", but Norris signed an extension with McLaren a month or so ago. Given McLaren's new form, why would Norris want to go to Mercedes to be #2 when there is a strong argument he is #1 at McLaren?

Yes that's my sort of take too.

I don't think Ricc will be replaced unless he tanks for the rest of the season. Looks like he is getting there although pretty ordinary in both FP's today!

The way I see it there is:
1 Merc seat
1/2 Sauber seats
1/ Dorilton seat
1/ Haas seat.

I tend to agree regarding Ricciardo. He seems to be generally improving, but slowly.

I saw it said somewhere that once Mercedes makes a decision on their second seat, that various other potential open seats will be quickly resolved.
