In this case, it's no wonder Hulkenberg doesn't have a drive in F1 if he didn't want one in the first place!

I believe even with those two drivers Mercedes would still be able to fight for the top. I would say it sounds like a dumb rule, on the other hand it would be funny if the defending champion had to switch to a mediocre team to bring it to the top.

It was fun when Rossi switched from his race winning Honda team to race for Yamaha and bought them a few titles. He should be applauded for that. However we can't really blame it that not many world champions have done that, for they want to remain on top if they can

Hulkenberg is probably about the same level (including the level of bad luck) as Mark "Potsie" Webber.

Unfortunately, Hulkenberg asked for too much money from HAAS, so HAAS didn't want him, so that's that!

If he was determined to continue if F1, be it driving for HAAS for cheap (refer the great job "Quick" Nick Heidfeld did at Jordan for no salary in order to stay in F1) or finding some sponsors to bring to Williams, Hulkenberg could still be in F1 -- but it seems Hulk is not interested!?



Regardless, Hulkenberg could have had a podium at Germany 2019 but (like many times before, such as Brazil 2010), Hulkenberg fell off the road instead...




Unfortunately, Enstone facilities became outdated under GENII, while staffing level dropped well below top teams like Red Bull.
Well, Red Bull is still second best behind Mercedes.

He would have had a chance at Williams... but who wants that?

Yet Lorenzo didn't even score a single Top 10 finish at Honda.

I think Max has a lot to do with Red Bull’s results, especially if you saw how bad Gasly was. Ok Pierre underperformed, but if the Red Bull was that good, he wouldn’t have been that far back IMHO. That said some circuits seemed to suit the Red Bull more than the Ferrari
