agree on odd timing. Sounds like parted well but because of timing would think there was some dust up. With No hope for 2023 Lew quits and swaps places with Danny Ric. DR gets a ride in top team even if there is no hope and Lew gets to take a break get paid some and promote his personal agenda. DR will give Russell a run for his money. A couple points will separate the two coming down to car reliability not driver. Lew signs with the leading team during silly season and someone is going to be out of F1 as the musical chairs odd man out or Bottas retires.
