And the memes are only just getting started...

Could this be the end of the road for Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya? I'm not personally convinced by the decision to bring on (yet) another street circuit at the expense of a classic track and a layout that that still challenges modern F1 machinery.

And another thing... Credit where it's due - Clarkson came up with it back in July 2013 🤣

Apparently so, will become the new Spanish GP for 10 years. It was a fair trek out to the old track although not as bad as Qatar!
 
Oh My God Wow GIF


We haven't even had a single car launch and the '24 "Silly Season" has (seemingly) just already kicked off with one hell of a bang!! 😲🤯


Of course this might never happen. But assuming for a moment that it does...
  1. With Leclerc having just re-signed for Ferrari on a multi-year deal, where does this leave Sainz? Direct swap to Merc? Move to Audi as their Number 1? Perez's replacement at RBR to rekindle the VER/SAI rivalry of the STR days?
  2. Will Toto step aside in '25 and if he does, who will take over?
  3. What do we read into this - if anything - about the trajectory of Mercedes' recovery?
  4. Does Lewis take Bono with him to Ferrari?
The list of questions is endless, but one thing is for sure... 2024 may have just gotten very tasty before a single wheel has been turned in anger!!
 
It’s confirmed. HAM is moving to Ferrari.
Nigel Mansell made the same move to the iconic team describing it as “like a calling from the Pope”
 
Probably very low down on the list of news I thought might come out before the season....wow

Maybe Toto will put Mick in the Merc lol

Yes I’m wondering who’ll replace HAM. Mic Schumacher should be in line but…..
 
Wow huge news, i would have put money on Hamilton ending his career with Mercedes.

Is RIC locked in to TR next year?

Who really knows when it turns out Lewis's 2yr contract had a unilateral exit clause.

Definitely wouldn't suprise it drivers like Norris have performance exit clauses

Although I think if he offered to go they'd happily bring Lawson back in.....

Lol.. Brendon Hartley I would believe. :)
