Re: Which drivers will we see full-time in F1 again?

Albon is the only realistic option, Nico - I think has missed his opportunity. As for the remainder, there's pretty much no reason a current F1 team would look to them as an option.

Re: Suzuka 1990 vs Adelaide 1994

I honestly don't think anyone who watches F1 thinks Senna was a saint, quite the opposite.
I would say, however, 1990 was a direct result of Prost taking Senna out the previous year.

Re: I am calling it now Hamilton will win WDC 2018

Watching this year I’d say it is Lewis’s to lose. It feels like he is dialling it in, but when he gets his head in the right space he’s far enough ahead of the rest (combination if driver and car) to win much any race. This has the feel of 2016 where Lewis gave it away.
