Very excited to also see Oscar Piastri at McLaren next year. He looks like a proper young talent who should not take very long to start to help push Norris.

 

Also would love to see the dynamic at Alpine if Gasly were to become teammates with frenemy Ocon next year as well. Netflix would love that result...

 

Quite a few options at Williams with Mick Schumacher being released from his contract with Ferrari. Also Nyck DeVries and Logan Sargeant chomping at the bit for an opportunity at an F1 seat.

 

There is American Colton Herta from Indy Car who may yet factor in if he is deemed eligible to drive in Formula 1 without the requisite super license points.

 

Also what happens to Ricciardo? 

 

He is looking at a sabbatical year out of Formula 1 unless he is going to get another chance back with Alpine.

Piastri is like the first overall draft pick that all NHL teams covet. 
 

He’s very talented young driver and I agree, I think he’ll push Norris in a season or two. If Mclaren can give both him and Norris competitive cars, we may see the resurgence of Mclaren as a front runner. 
 

I also think Herta could be a fantastic young entrant into F1. He’s got the skill and pedigree/lineage to handle F1. 
 

If Danny Ric doesn’t sign with Alpine I think he sits out a year. He may never get another seat if he sits though. Age and being out a year may make teams hesitate the following year, particularly when those other two prospects are waiting in the wings. 
 

Gasly and Ocon together would be hilarious. They’ll probably collide at least 2-3 times a season. It would be a huge Netflix side story. I’m down for it. I hope they become teammates!

Early rumors are Nyck DeVries will be taking over Pierre Gasly's seat and Colton Herta does not seem to have enough points to qualify for a Super license and has been passed over for an F1 shot with no exceptions given.

 

Pierre Gasly expected to join Esteban Ocon at Alpine next season.

 

This leaves only a seat at Williams next to Albon and Haas next to Magnusson.

 

Ricciardo looks to be out of the running for both remaining seats.

 

Mick Schumacher looks to be out at Haas he is a long shot for a seat now. His last chance is at Williams to stay in the sport next year.

 

Haas are apparently keen on the old cagey veteran Nico Hulkenburg. He is not great but generally reliable and thanks to his experience along with Magnusson should help improve the car through feedback in the development process.

 

Also a Verstappen win in Singapore clinces him the tile and Red Bull the constructors. It has been a matter of when not if.

 

The remaining races are about Ferrari trying to save face and not look like incompetent morons and let Mercedes catch up in the constructors before the end of the season.

Herta out, DeVries in. 
 

I’m looking forward to 2023. 
 

FFS, Mercedes better get their act together. No excuses.

 

Hope all the drivers stay safe in the meantime. 
 

Verstappen is a lock for the Drivers Championship and so is Redbull. 
 

I can’t believe in all my years I’m pulling for Ferrari.  I feel dirty and disgusted at myself.
