What, are you serious? Large multinationals make decisions to improve their brand and bottom line?

Stop being logical

Although, I guess a hot headed kid that wipes out, crashes in F1 lingo and blames everyone else for his failures fits right in with the target market for Red Bull.

Mate first of all , please reread my post in #175 .

I got the information because I was mailed regarding the subject and I still speak with (Japanese) people because I'm essential at the company.
As I said I already know it from last week when HAM signed his new contract !

Actually there's no link , but earlier today I crossed this on Google regarding the F1 latest breaking news...

Mate exactly ! But not from your point of view ...
It's all about WHO will get the so wanted spaceship seat , once Daimler kicks HAM's A$$ at the end of this season!
And who's on top of the list as for HAM's replacement ...

And WHO that may be , you can see that just above this post !

My good friend, it says, "Believes". This is based on Horner's own thoughts. What else would he say? If he said someone else was first on Toto's list, it would demean Max.

EVERY WIN that Sir Lewis has and every championship won has been under one brand: Mercedes Power.

There is NO WAY they will throw away that record and PR potential in a fit of pique. This is NOT the way corporate decisions are made.

They are coldly and logically made with maximum upside for the brand. VER is unknown outside of racing circles and Sir Lewis is a global brand and leader in multiple industries.

Think like Mercedes, the corporation, and not a VER fan. You will see that I am correct.

And my point of view is based on negotiating about a billion dollars in annual sales for publicly traded corporation.

Cheers-mk
Well from what I heard , we'll speak again at the end of this season .
Or at the latest in the beginning of 2022 .

Nice jokes guys above. From what I heard the situation was serious ...
As I said the situation can change very quickly during the season .But this is how it looks like for the moment !

Of course , "IF" MAX can beat HAM in this season . It won't happen !
But MAX's exit/escape clause was/is made in his RB contract till 2023 anyway ...

My friend , actually It's beyond "Believes"
It was confirmed by Toto as well . Horner had several calls with Toto regarding the subject in question .

In other words : Horner and Marko are chicken IF MAX would get the Merc seat .
I heard they pray that the '21 RB16-B is competitive enough to fight HAM for the title .
Otherwise.....MAX is gone ! Bye ...Bye Red Bull

The soy-boys are coming for the rest!!
My friend I couldn't agree more !
At least if our bearings can hold it up !!!
This was/is a serious failure made by BMW ...

"BUT" !!!

Today I'm thinking "YES" . Tomorrow "NO"

Because I can't stop watching the new 992 Turbo-S on YouTube !
Man.....It pulls like a nuke ! The thing is the ultimate supercar killer !

Damn ! Won't test drive one , because I would order one in a heartbeat !
Last weekend I was thinking like : Guards Red ? Speed yellow ?
Or just in stealth black...

^ If a lottery win happened then first stop for me would be the P dealership for that exact one in GR, also Vettel is selling some tasty Ferrari's from his collection .

You have to laugh at the click bait end of the motoring press and the peoples who lap it up because they so want it to be true.
What Horner *thinks* doesn't make it fact.

There are currently three drivers lined up for the two Mercedes seats for the 2020 F1 season.
Hamilton/Russell/Bottas....with Hamilton/Russell the most likely combo.

If Hamilton and Bottas both retire then maybe Verstappen has a chance depending on his contract escape clause...but I wouldn't be putting any big bets on that tight set of circumstances.

I would imagine triple champ Piquet also had a hand in advising Max on how to go about forming contracts with his wide experience.

Thanks for asking, my good friend!

We have had quite a time of it from the ice storm. My city was shut down for 3.5 days with tens of thousands of people out of power. I'm good as well as my family. How are you and yours managing?

Despite the snow and ice I'm happy to hear you're fine !

We got it 2 weeks here and I had a hard time to drive very early in the morning (4:30AM) on the snow and ice .
High gear ,low rpm's and stay away from the brake pedal ! Have to say , honestly my Mini was outstanding .


As usual I'm super busy at the company .Tired . But I'm fine .
Thank you my friend !
