    Let's take a moment to appreciate that even though Albon finished 4th he reduced the gap to Hamilton from 7.89 to 1.58.. if he has 3 more laps, I feel he would have overtaken Hamilton, or Hamilton would send him spinning for the 3rd time! 🙄 I will miss Alex greatly if you go with Perez!

    Red Bull needs to give Albon proper car, Helmut Marko said it earlier in the season that Albon's car is not to his suit. First they need to give him a car to feel comfortable with before evaluating anything. Or they need to stop pushing young drivers so quick through Alpha Tauri into the Red Bull seat. If Albon loses his seat i will still blame Red Bull taking in consideration how Kvyat and Gasly were screwed there. The situation with Albon is not surprising me at all

    We all think that Mateschitz owns Red Bull, but the truth is that he have only 49% and his Thai partner owns 51%. Albon would be history without his Thai passport. Perez have strong sponsors, but I dont think that Thai billionaire need any help with money.

    although Albon definitely has the skills he doesn't have the relentless killer instinct or mental strength that is present in drivers like Hamilton, Perez or Verstappen. Perez/Verstappen versus Hamilton/Bottas sounds very interesting. If RedBull keeps Albon, that's fine as well.

    I would love to see Albon leave of his own accord to another competitive team. RB team is great but has a track record with a steep learning curve. Pierre also struggled in their system. The infrastructure should be equally scrutinized as there are indicators that calls to focus more than the driver.

    Stick with Albon. I've personally lost patience with some of his drives, but this time he showed his skill. As great as Perez is, he's old, he's not from the driver program and it might cost RB another development driver who may begin to doubt his own future prospect and begin to look elsewhere. Alex will be fine next year I think.

    Merc has not developed their car in any major way since the start of the season, instead focusing on the updates for 2021. This is RB's MO, start slow, finish strong - I also suspect Merc ran a little soft on purpose to give RB et al a false sense of confidence.
