Re: Verstappen needs to watch his back

I can't understand how people continue to entertain the thought that Verstappen will have a choice of Merc or Ferrari for 2021. Leclerc's made Ferrari a closed shop for Verstappen. They're starting to have troubles controlling their drivers now. Verstappen & Leclerc as team mates? That's bound to e...

To ease the confusion I think we should call them Minardi and Sauber. You aren't getting those two confused.

I don't like the idea. One race should not determine the championship unless it's a very close battle up to that race, in which case single points would be enough.
