The only reason that is in the contract is Max is very loyal Helmut. If Marko isn't leaving RB Max isn't leaving.

No one is believing the Jos powerplay anyways. Max wants no part of the Merc crap wagon car.

Carlos Sainz is very much a favorite at this moment. He deserves to have a seat in 2025 after his strong performances so far this season.

I think Merc will only offer Sainz a 1+1 contract because of Antonelli, which I do not know if Sainz will agree to.

Carlos needs the merc seat. he knows it.

Or maybe Stroll kicks his son out of a seat?

I'd hate to see Sainz have to drop back to a lesser team.

MB should go Carlos since Ferrari was stupid enough to give him up. Russell Boy might not like that much.

What did Carlos Sainz do to you to wish MB on him.

In my perfect world Stroll is out and Carlos is in at Aston Martin. Carlos Sainz / Fernando Alonso combo would be awesome.

I said MB should want Carlos, not Carlos should want MB. He should want RB.

As far as if SAI is going to Merc or not I'll repeat Rhett Butlers line in that famous film, 'Frankly my dear I don't give a damn'

Because Carlos Sainz deserves better. It is also hard to get around the Audi situation. My guess if Sergio Perez doesn't get it done you will find Carlos Sainz in his seat for a one year deal before moving to Audi.

Sainz is a great driver and Ferrari screwed him, but that doesn't mean any team, especially redbull, owe him anything. He and his dad pissed off people at redbull years ago.

Perez has stated that he and redbull are already in contract negotiations. He's finished 2nd in every race apart from the one where his team noted that he lost a significant amount of downforce. Perez comes with a lot of sponsors, and Sainz would likely demand a higher salary, so why swap drivers if the results will be the same?

Sainz should be aiming for Ham's seat at Merc, or Stroll's seat at AM. Redbull is a low probability case, imo. Only if Perez starts binning himself/others into the wall again.

One can only hope. I sorta feel like max doesn't want drama, it's probably Jos doing the playing.

That's an old joke.
