    Yep because the Williams is so good that the kid has a chance to do that :rofl2:. George has shown all season how good a driver he is by making the Williams look like a fairly good car when it is absolutely shit. Aitkens only hope is to out qualify Latifi

    Also a possible Reason for not taking Hülkenberg:

    According to media reports and voices,especially in the Netherlands,Verstappen's first choice would be Nico Hülkenberg as his Teammate,someone who could push him ...:evil:

    As it seems,the Decision for Russell was not so "clear" and "easy" for Stoffel....

    George is going to be a F1 world champion in two to three years time

    Stoffel is still going to be a reserve driver in 2 to 3 years time and still racing shitty battery powered cars in Formula E :rofl2:

    Another Bet ? :rofl2:

    My "Guess":

    Russell will suffer the same "Faith" like Max or our Gerhard Berger.
    Wrong Team at the wrong Time.

    - either the Team will be to weak (Remember the McLaren/Honda Disaster from 1990 to 1994....?)
    I do not think Mercedes will be soo dominant in the next Years..maybe 2021 but then....
    - or the "wrong" Teammate.If such "Hot Shots" like LeClerc or Mick Schumacher are in the "most compatible" Team,the "Oldies",yes Max will be then also One of them,will have no Chance against them.

    Russell is maybe a very good Driver,but the "Field of good/very good Drivers" is also not small...
    Albon can maybe "sing a Song" of this Story...

    You have to be awesome and outstanding today,good or very good is not enough......


    Outstanding today means - win Races with an Racing Point or Renault (maybe McLaren) today.
    Drivers like Senna had such Potential.Today Drivers have simply not the understandings for a Car to (further) develope and Setup a Car ready to race.
    A Lauda,Senna or Berger for Example spent hours and hours in the Garage between Sessions,spending Days of Developing Talks in the Factories....the have known/felt with their "Ass" when something was wrong with the Car..

    Today - only sitting in dumb Computer Simulators...I understand,why Max had boycott the Virtual Grand Prix´s first...and that´s their own fault.Drivers today are Puppets and can be replaced at any time...there are enough younger ones there....
