This silly season is something else!

Kimi leaving Ferrari at the end of the year, I expect Leclerc will be confirmed shortly.

What's Kimi got planned? Retirement? Nope, 2 year deal at Sauber :lol:

I did not see that coming read a rumour over the weekend but did not think much of it. Can see Kimi doing the 2 years at Sauber and then leaving F1

Kimi heading back to finish his F1 career where he started it then. That is surprising.

Kimi should have walked away. 2 years at Sauber does nothing for him.

There were some rumours over the weekend that Kimi would get some shares in Sauber.

Will be interesting to see how Leclerc gets on at Ferrari and if he performs as well as some are expecting then it could be pressure on for Vettel.

Leclerc will prob be a strictly no2 driver i can't see Vettel letting him challenge him in Ferrari.

Hopefully he hammers him like Ricciardo did at red bull and he sulks off somewhere else.

Sauber? More like SauBWUAAAH amirite

With how highly rated Leclerc is surely he should go in and do well? He only took a few races to get accustomed to F1 and has since had the upper hand over Ericsson for the most part. Hopefully it'll be a decent fight between the two.

Superb line up if he does as well as he is expected to though.

Leclerc could become my new "big three" man to follow.

What's wrong with it? They'll never look like that of course but I don't understand the dread, what am I missing?

Looks ok. Only items I see are the front wing endplates, rear wheel covers and an aero part behind the front wheels.

It's contrived. I'm all for a cool look, but deliberately making something look futuristic takes away the mechanical look of a racing car. Look at formula E for example, they look rubbish.

Yeh I agree but they'll never actually look like that, the pursuit of downforce will ensure a more mechanical look. No way has that concept been designed with optimum aero in mind. Formula E all use the same body don't they? No room for small gains by tweaking here and there so they all look like concept cars. I don't mind them though!
