  1. Hopefully RB realises Perez is much better than Albon despite today’s result

    1. It’s not Red Bull and Albon that are stopping Perez driving next year, but those who hired Alonso and Vettel. Living in the past and karma is going to bite them when it turns out their expensive (old) hires achieve less than Perez would.

      1. Dont you dare compare alonso to vettel. Vettel is slow but Alonso his last year at McLaren was still insanely fast despite slow car

  2. @huhhii The results all year have shown he’s not the right man for the job but they seem to be ignoring that. Only hurting themselves ultimately.

  3. Let’s not forget Albon comes with some decent sponcership.
    Also the car hasn’t been developed to suite his style of driving, that’s something RB will have to address moving forward. Its not just a case of here’s the car, now go drive it.

  4. I’ve never been so glad that a race is over! There’s just a worrying level of…everything in today’s race. Were my grandma an F1 fan, she would have been like, “Oooh, the spirits don’t like this one. Better stop, yes?”

    While I’m happy for Albon, absolutely gutted that it comes at the cost of Perez losing a podium so close to what might be his last drives :( Also, the spirits really has it for Russel too, huh? How many times now he almost gets a (one! measly!) point and just…didn’t? Were it not for the safety car at the end, Bottas and Ricciardo might have been overtaken and…well.

  5. you headline is wrong. Perez isn’t a Red Bull driver yet and he finished 18th. not 3rd.

    1. +1
      As I have said since Seb got AM, if commonsense prevails – it is a no-brainer.
      Also again it comes with the Dr Death disclaimer.

  6. Third win of the season for Albon, now even with Ricciardo and Leclerc, at the N2M2F1* Bahrein GP today. After the horrific Grosjean shunt in the first lap which redflagged the race, bad luck for the Racing Point drivers with an early flip for Stroll and a late flambée for Perez who seemed poised to win the race. Both incidents triggered safety cars. After Albon came the McLaren drivers, Norris second followed by Sainz, third after a great recovery drive from 12th after his Q2 misfortune. Then Gasly fourth, probably saved by the late safety car. Not a good day at the office for Ricciardo, who anyway made fifth and the extra point for fastest lap, followed by Ocon, sixth. Poor show for the Ferrari drivers, who were nowhere in the straights; Leclerc was seventh and Vettel tenth; between them Kvyat made eight and Russell ninth.

    While the expected victory of Perez would have made him almost untouchable for the WDC, his late mechanical mishap puts Ricciardo on top again. Most likely one of them both will make it, but mathematically Leclerc, Norris, Albon and (barely) Sainz are still in contention. The WDC positions are now:

    01 Ricciardo 182 points
    02 Perez 180 points
    03 Leclerc 156 points
    04 Norris 156 points
    05 Albon 149 points
    06 Sainz 138 points
    07 Gasly 126 points
    08 Stroll 113 points
    09 Ocon 91 points
    10 Vettel 75 points
    11 Kvyat 69 points
    12 Raïkkönen 23 points
    13 Hülkenberg 20 points
    14 Giovinazzi 20 points
    15 Grosjean 11 points
    16 Latifi 8 points
    17 Russell 8 points
    18 Magnussen 4 points

    For the WCC, Racing Point are still on top after a null result today but RBR** and McL are coming close, while Renault and (remotely) Ferrari are still in contention. The positions are:

    01 Racing Point 313
    02 Red Bull Racing 298
    03 McLaren 294
    04 Renault 273
    05 Ferrari 231
    06 Alpha Tauri 195
    07 Alfa Romeo 43
    08 Williams 16
    09 Haas 15

    Finally, for the medal championship (Bernie’s style), with three triple winners, there are still chances for Perez (who needs a win and a second position, provided that Ricciardo does not make another second) and Stroll (who needs both wins). The positions are:

    01 Ricciardo
    02 Leclerc
    03 Albon
    04 Perez
    05 Stroll
    06 Norris
    07 Gasly
    08 Sainz
    09 Vettel
    10 Ocon
    11 Kvyat
    12 Hulkenberg
    13 Giovinazzi
    14 Raïkkönen
    15 Grosjean
    16 Latifi
    17 Russell
    18 Magnussen

    *N2M2F1: No Mercs no Max F1
    **RBR gets 2 x Albon’s score, as the only driver in the team

    1. BTW,1 the 15 point penalty for Racing Point is not being factored, (after all, you cannot copy stuff from a non-existent team). There would be a tie at the top, with McL only four points behind, if it was.
