    It looks like both drivers need to go.

    If nothing else, this all will make next season's "Drive to Survive" pretty epic to watch.

    Quote of the day from Guenter: "We were expecting to watch an exciting race ... not that our drivers would ******* join us."

    I would keep Magnussen.
    I like his "I take no prisoner" attitude.

    Grosjean has too many bad days.

    If Grosjean is still in his seat next season they deserve what they’re getting.

    Red Bull are going after Storey for trade mark infringement.

    How soon til Storey commits "suicide" by jumping off a bridge in India wherein there are no witnesses and no body, but there is an official document proving his demise? 3 months? 5 months? 5.2 months?

    Read that Ocon is going to replace Grosjean as early as Germany. I don't think Ocon could be worse.

    If that happens, Ocon may say goodbye to his career.
    He had ambition to drive for Mercedes one day.

    I heard Mercedes was going to let him go.

    What F1 driver doesn't aspire to drive for Mercedes? It's not his decision, he isn't needed.
    Ocon and Magnussen as teammates? That will be interesting, a battle of wills. My money is on KMag.

    I think Ocon has been kept Under the wing by Toto Wolff as an eventual replacement in case either driver was leaving.
    He is probably "driving" simulators at base to keep busy, and gets paid handsomely for it.
    Not easy for Mercedes to farm him out on a temporary basis.

    I hope ocon gets the job, he will destroy K mag, together with Charles and Max he's f.1 future, i knoe Bottas is doing a good job, but Ocon is better and would be Mercs future...

    So, a Frenchman replacing another one at Haas ? I don't know how that will work.
    Anyway, I prefer Magnussen anyday.

    They wound up with a good day yesterday in spite of their two morons almost crashing into each other again. I think Gunther would have totally lost it and fired both of them. Who could blame him?

    All three of them need to go. GS refuses to make decisions regarding his drivers, and the Rich Energy debacle along with a boat anchor of a car shows that he's way out of his depth. BOTH of their drivers are losing to Lance Stroll. Neither of them have learned a single thing in all their years in F1.

    It may not be quite true, but the Steiner quote I heard that summed up the weekend: "the drivers earned points, but not with me."

    Like "don't crash into each other"? indeed that would be a necessary order :D

    Autosport+ headline today. No surprise one might be thinking this -
    F1 can't take Haas's presence for granted
    Formula 1's newest team should be a golden example of the potential of a lower-cost future, but a disillusioned Gene Haas is frustrated with both the championship's current model and the vagueness over where it's heading

    I'd be surprised if they were still in it in a few years. FIA sold him a bill of goods about cost cutting, and he bought it hook line and sinker.

    To me, that says more about the flaws in the F1 management than a failure from Haas.
    F1 is not a welcoming environment for new team, in its present model with its its rigid structures and inherited privilèges.
    If Haas leaves F1, it will be the 4th last new entrant to quit.

    Haas could sponsor several teams in different series for the same amount of money he spends in F1, and get more exposure too.
