ed001, what do you make of Vettles move to Aston/ racing point?

He is obviously a bigger name then perez, but the way he has been treated, being axed by text is a bit sour for me. Perez has done well in the merc of last year and deserved better imo. Obviously Stroll is safe as houses with his dad as the owner and if he wasn't that lucky he would be the one to go.

Plus vettle looks to have lost his mojo so I think I would of stuck with perez personally.

{Ed001's Note - it does look like a huge mistake. Though he might well rediscover his fire with the way he is being treated by Ferrari. That is their only hope really, is that he is driven by bitterness. Other than that, it looks a crazy decision. For both parties to be honest. Why would you want to join a team owned by the father of your teammate? He is clearly going to be favoured with better equipment and get the pick of the strategies etc.

It must be pointed out, Perez was only there initially because of the sponsorship he brings with him, which gave them money to go racing. So he was always likely to be pushed out of the door once they no longer needed that money.}

Didn’t know that about Perez, but it’s a shame he's leaving he’s doing wonders for my fantasy f1 team so hope it doesn’t effect him.

I think vettle has been broken by merc and Hamilton. I feel that Aston want him for the name and he’s gone as it’s the best offer he was going to get. I do think it’s destined for tears. And I can’t see them competing much higher up the grid then their current efforts.

As for Perez wonder where he will end up, potentially Indy which seems to be where a host of past f1 drivers end up.

{Ed001's Note - someone will take Perez as he brings good sponsorship. Good driver too, so he is not just a pay driver unlike some.}

I don't know where is available though ed001, I think it was only Haas and alfa that have space and he is better then that. Itll be a shape if he has to take a drop down the grid at the expense of vettle.

Hopefully vettle proves me wrong and he is a success. Personally I think he will be battling with Mclaren for the best of the rest behind red bull next season.

{Ed001's Note - both Ferrari-engined teams, which is a bit of a problem as that is the worst engine now they have blocked off the avenue for them to cheat. However with him being backed by Carlos Slim's billions, he could turn them into a competitive team.}
