I guess we all saw it coming. Feel for the bloke though, it's a hard sport.

Yes its a shame, but even he said its all about timing, and unfortunately he was with a currently awful team, god knows how Lando will feel if he gets a seat!!!!!

It's a tough one, but regardless of whether the car is utter pants or not he just hasn't delivered. Genuinely think he's had his shot. Maybe he gets another chance at Toro Rosso or Sauber, but I'm not sure he's good enough anymore. There are a few others who should quite frankly not be on the grid too, I think he's better than Ericsson, Stroll, Hartley and Sirotkin, but that's not exactly saying much.

At least he gets to see the season out. Glad McLaren are not involved in the horror show that happening else where on the grid. Kind of hope there come a ruling where unless injured or other damn good reason, they cant continue drivers get the full season once they have started. It's all RedBulls fault, and they have just set a precedent that its ok for everyone to chop and change when ever.
I'm English, as such, I crave disappointment. That's why I support McLaren.

I think a lot of it is down to confidence, when your doing well you have belief, when its going bad it only seems to get worse, to be fair his teammate his nigh on impossible to beat (look at his record, only Trulli has beat him once) what is he generally 0.3 - 0.5 slower?? I would like to see him given another chance at Sauber at the expense of Ericsson personally, but it is what it is.

Poor old Norris he may well suffer the same fate as SVD, actually he has Sainz instead of Alonso, so gets off lightly  Big Grin

Well there you go. Good for Norris, I just wrote elsewhere I expected him to move to TR. That's one good youngster on the grid, just need to retain Ocon, and bring Russell in too.
