Where do you think he'll be in 2019?

Mercedes looks less likely. Ferrari looks less likely with the rise of LeClerc. Although I'm not sure how happy Vettel would be about that.

There's talk of Dan going to McLaren should Alonso leave. I can't see that happening. He'd have to be nuts.

I think it's looking more and more likely that he'll be staying put.

RBR must have some confidence in Honda, so staying at RBR might be the smart choice.

He will stay where he is I think.

RIP LJ - loved and never forgotten.

"It was dry for the second go-around. Grice, nervous, worrying about his Bathurst jinx, ran 2:25.9. The amazing Brock, using every last centimetre of bitumen, yet keeping the car straight and balanced and at full noise, came back with a staggering 2:20.0 as if to say: "Match that". And people just shook their heads, bit their lips and wondered who would be second".

The Peter Brock trophy is now where it belongs.

Looking more and more like he's boxed in at Red Bull.
Word now is that Kimi is linked to McLaren.

A silly season indeed.

With the doors shut at Ferrari and Merc, his only hope of results will be RBR. I think Renault will need a couple more seasons to catch up and Mclaren is a complete shambles. Max will be a great challenge for him as well, especially when he begins driving more intelligently which he appears to be doing now, and that will ensure Dan never gets complacent.

Red Bull will be able to squeeze him on money now as well seeing as he has no other competitive options

I just hope Red Bull doesn't end up in shambles as a result of Honda. Honda is a big question mark.

Staying at Red Bull might be his only decent choice but it also all but guarantees heíll never be champion. I think Max is faster and once he starts stitching his Sundays together he will beat Dan consistently. Dan is probably the better racer but Max kills him in qualifying and when he doesnít crash he gets on the podium.

Funny how Dan had the F1 world at his feet at one point with supposedly Merc and Ferrari after him and now heís probably going to get shafted on pay at Red Bull. Damn.

Cetainly getting a little icy.

Given the results that both Renault's had last night (Renault, McLaren) I'd say Red Bull may still be looking the best option. He should be going hell-for-leather at Bottas' seat, but I can't see Mercedes moving him.

Either beat Hamilton ala Rosberg or hope the Honda produces the goods with a 50/50 chance at knocking off Verstappen. I can't see the Renault's being a Championship winner under the current rules.
