Should have been Dan

So it looks like for the sec­ond straight sea­son Fer­rari clearly have the fastest car, but Se­bas­tian Vet­tel’s propen­sity for driv­ing into ‘red mist’ and throw­ing wins away will cost them an­other ti­tle.

I think Fer­rari may look back and re­alise they’ve missed a per­fect op­por­tu­nity. Dan Ric­cia­rdo was on the market and they should have snapped him up. Dan would never make the same mis­takes as Vet­tel un­der the same cir­cum­stances. Seb ‘may’ be faster in per­fect con­di­tions, but when the heat is on, that’s an­other story.

They should have taken the op­por­tu­nity to put Dan along­side Seb, know­ing that Vet­tel would ei­ther lift his game, or leave at the end of 2019, when DR would take over as num­ber one driver. In­stead I fear an­other re­peat of mis­takes un­der pres­sure for Seb and Fer­rari in 2019. Let’s see hey?
