A look at the history of drivers that have teamed with Max is a list of short stints and team mate failures.
Daniil Kvyat
Carlos SAINZ
Daniel Ricciardo
Pierre Gasly
Alex ALBON
Sergio Pérez

When Max is the number one and the car construction and set up is tailored for his aggressive driving style, It is very hard to for other drivers to deal with the handing. Max prefers a car that is rear limited (oversteer) Most drivers are more comfortable with front limited (understeer) This is likely why Daniel Ricciardo and Alex Albon had a harder time copping. Too bad Kimi Raikkonen was never Max's team mate. beginning this season (Bahrain & Saudi Arabia) the car was more to Cheko's liking and Max had a harder time. The car was developed in Max's direction.
Horner knows what he has and it is team in as much harmony as a Formula one team can be in. In a year or two he will have to put young talent in to develop a replacement for Max but this is not that year.

O’Ward went second to Esteban Ocon in the final hour of running and said he’s improving rapidly in F1 machinery, and feels that if the team sees the same progress then it might open doors if he’s successful in IndyCar.
After completing over 100 laps, O’Ward said the track time has allowed him to really identify areas he can improve and work on immediately.

Oh LooK, another Mexican in Formula One?
Sure mate . If he's fast enough , why not
And I heard that the Russell boy crashed with his Mercedes W14 with some bits on it from the new 2024 W15

Right !
Mate .You're the Red Bull Team boss and you would develop a 14 $Million car for your # 2 driver , and not for your triple F1 World Champion ...'
Ohhhh ....C'mon ! F1 Isn't a madhouse !

Let's refresh our memories ...
MAX won his first race in the 2016 Spanish-GP in the crappy Toro Rosso SH1Tbox car !
Think MAX got 3 test days in this Toro Rosso 5H1Tbox car and he ran top 7 lap times already !
MAX scored the first drivers points for the Toro Rosso team in a car who wasn't developed or designed for him .
Even his drivers seat wasn't designed for him yet and he won the race ..

He's going to win at least a couple of races with Mercedes in 2024. They looked a lot better at the end of the 2023 season than the start of the season.

Make that 2025 instead of 2024:
"Lewis Hamilton on verge of shock move to Ferrari from Mercedes"
https://www.bbc.com/sport/formula1/68163799

Dedicated thread:
"Lewis Hamilton to leave Mercedes and join Ferrari for 2025":
