Re: Silly Season 2022

Just saw this… Bottas number one target for Alfa if not retained by Merc. This is to replace Raikkonen which suggests he’s finally retiring or getting the boot (the article suggests the latter)

I don’t think it’ll be in Hungary though, that should suit Red Bull more and perhaps even Ferrari after their strong form in Monaco.

If you believe Lewis is guilty and he's wiped out his main rival, 10 seconds is quite possibly a pointless penalty.
