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

The Abu Dhabi GP saw three drivers potentially racing their last race in F1, with another having seen his career in F1 end in flames a couple of races before. Kevin Magnussen, Daniil Kvyat, Alex Albon and Romain Grosjean are the names in question, joining several others (Hulkenberg, Alonso, Vandoorn...

Re: Abiteboul leaves renault.

I don't think it's that big a surprise, tbh. Given the budget and the resources they have, getting to 4th but then dropping back to 5th place two years in a row really isn't any kind of an achievement. Particularly when you look at the context: 2018: 4th place represented an improvement on 6th the p...

Looking at the options individually... Might upset Max: Max will be clear of him on pace, and tbh Max should want an upgrade on Albon as his teammate because if Red Bull give him a car to fight Lewis, he'll need his teammate in the mix. In nearly equal cars, I'd argue that Max would be at a disadvan...
