I think the sport will take a big hit of Merc leaves. They’ve been so innovative since 2014

But it would be fun to watch. I’d like it to happen, but I doubt it.
I can't imagine Vettel going to Merc.

I'm sure they are very happy with Bottas who has done everything they have asked of him, often to the detriment of his own results, to ensure Hamilton wins the big prize for them.

As a Vettel fan I'm happy with him retiring after 2020. George Russell is ready to join Mercedes. They shouldn't waste more years on Bottas when they can start preparing him to be the one defending against VER, LEC, and other young drivers in the future.

Sebastian Vettel rejected a move to the McLaren Formula 1 team since the 4-time F1 World Champion is unwilling to spend too much time on the developing car.

I would sign up to lease a Merc contingent on Mercedes putting ham and Vettel together with no team orders for a season. God that would be hilarious.

Who gives a shit if any of us mortals is an anti or pro Vettel. Say whatever you want and your opinion is always appreciated. He's a 4 time world champion worth half a billion dollars living with his childhood sweetheart and their 3 kids in the swiss countryside.
What we, myself included, say here is not even noise to them!
Let's hope for a good season while we wait for a rocking 2021.
Cheers

Don't worry we already know you are, but like the guy above said it's fine. However, you should want it more than anybody, to show how superior your precious Ham is.

Hamilton is currently in a much much better shape physically and mentally than Seb. Which means if this partnership happened Seb will be obviously #2, which he wouldn't want.

Can't imagine Merc going to another "old" bloke and I can't imagine Vettel wanting to be the number two to Hamilton.

According to Giuliano Duchessa:

Il Board #Daimler sta spingendo forte per mettere #Vettel sotto contratto 2021.
Toto Wolff col freno a mano tirato, Hamilton naturalmente vuole Bottas. Situazione in grande evoluzione.

Daimler's board is pushing hard to put Vettel under a 2021 contract. Toto Wolff with the handbrake pulled, Hamilton of course wants Bottas. Situation in great evolution.


Instead of Grazie Ragazzie it'll be Danke Jungs 😂

Maybe they know the true fans would love them for giving us a battle we've wanted to see for years. Would be funny if Ham wiped the floor with Vettel, and even funnier if vice versa.

As a Vettel fan I'm not ashamed of saying he's not on the same physical or mental level of Hamilton. But, her will not be an easy second driver like Bottas.

There had been talk on the past about Rosberg being on the team only because he's German. And Sport Bild once tweeted that the Vettel is who brought German flags to Hockenheimring not Mercedes, or something along those lines.

Agreed, but there is always a chance!

It would be great for the sport if Hamilton goes to Ferrari and Vettel to Mercedes.
Then we can see if it’s the car or the man who wins championships.
If Vettel becomes a Mercedes champion, I’m afraid people might doubt Hamilton's abilities.
But if Hamilton becomes a Ferrari champion -- he’ll be praised as the GOAT.
Then we will know it’s the man.
I hope they switch seats. This could be really exciting.

Usually a combination of both. Vettel won races at ferrari. He proved himself. Ferrari as a team just sucked and did him wrong.
