Honestly if they want to win championships, they should sign Max.

Yup. If it weren’t for Lec everyone would still be saying the Mercs are the quickest car, since Vet clearly can’t out qualify Lewis. There has been a large gap in performance between Ferrari and Merc the last two quali’s and only Lec is showing it.

Max's doubts about the RB and his contract are creeping in and his father Jos has let it be publicly known that RB have slackened off the mods.There is nothing I would like better than Max joining the reds.
Presuming Seb will stay put at the reds in '20 especially if he shines at the rest of the races then it may happen in'21.There is no question of Charles being let go probably.Another fly in the ointment though is if Seb wins the championship next year...

It's been suggested a few times that Seb punched it too much at the start and took off like nothing yet seen his year . It's interesting that it was the MGU-K controls that failed and not the actual unit..

No doubt about Max's talent and speed. But why do you think Leclerc wouldn't be able to achieve the same thing?

Do any of you guys watch Ted's Race Notebook? In his most recent edition after the Russian GP, he mentioned that Laurent Mekies (Ferrari's Sporting Director) commented that there's more speed yet to come from Leclerc. They knew he was fast, but he keeps finding more and more speed as the season progresses. It will be interesting to see how fast he gets once he has another year or two experience in F1.

If it wasn't for Seb's input since he joined the Scuderia then Lec would not be as quick as he has demonstrated.

Perhaps SEB's recent performance....

....his on-track performance and lack of bumper car tactics is due to the 9 points of a possible 12 on his FIA F1 Superlicence....he appears relatively stable at this time.

You mentioned points when you started your opinion about who is faster. Yet Lec finished less races ahead but has more points then Vettel. Do points not matter to you now?

So saying my opinion are like assholes, and me saying that is where yours comes from is personal?

I guess you can't take what you dish out.

I didn't say your opinion is like an asshole (that doesn't even make sense). It's just a saying that I think you never heard before.
I'm not going to discuss this any further with you. I can't continue in a childish conversation. I'm sorry I even started a conversation with you. Have a good day.

No more points backup your prized Vettel I see......, well I do truly hope he can turn things around and put up a fight in the remaining races. But unfortunately so far all he has shown is that he has lost his edge and is acting childish compared to a team mate almost half his age.

No matter how good Vettel is, its clear that CLC is way faster.
He also has a good personality which makes him also likeable...compared to the entitled bellend that is MV.
Until both are in the same car in the same team then who is faster between CLC amd MV is moot.
