Reports saying that Kimi won't have a seat at Ferrari next season after he didn't win the Italian GP.

Looks like Vettel will get a new subservient number 2 team mate next year.
Shame. Hopefully someone like McLaren will pick him up, it'd be a great shame to lose him from the grid.
McLaren already have their lineup sorted for next season.

I do think it's his time to step aside and open up some spaces on the grid for younger drivers.

It looks like Ocon won't even have a drive next year which is a tad alarming as he's certainly got the talent and ability.

He has the odd good showing, but Kimi's time has definitely come.

I did read a rumour that Kimi is also a part owner of the Sauber team now.

Can't find any clarification on that though.

Bit surprised that's Kimi has signed a 2 year deal, thought he would have had enough of F1 and obviously he doesn't need the money!

Confirmed that from next year, C4 will show the GB F1 race in full and all other races will be highlights only which means I get to watch one race a year.

What a crock of s***! I've got Sky Sports, but it's ridiculous how little live sport people can watch without being forced to pay a subscription now.

I went to a chocolate factory with a company I used to work with and at the end they allowed us to grab loads of freebies.

Grab me a car as well if you can. Not bothered about the colour.

Also, don't wipe yer Arse with mine...

Tyre management and f*** all happening <urgh>

Maybe 2 pitstops should be mandatory in every race so we get less of this.

Vettel having a tough time. Looks like he'll have to run two stops.

He'll know that he's got virtually no chance of winning the championship. Hamilton isn't going to blow this lead, he's on another level to every other driver.

Give Hamilton the title now, he's not losing a 40 point lead in 6 races.

Realistically he needs 2 Hamilton DNFs in 6 races...don't fancy his chances! Even then it's no guarantee that Vettel would win any race that Hamilton didn't finish.
