I am not saying that.
I am wondering if this frees him from his contract with RB.
he's no longer a spyMercedes weren’t keen on their main rivals placing one of their juniors in a team that runs their power units so to get a deal over the line, Red Bull agreed to release Albon from the programme with year still to run on his deal.
Horner added: “He was effectively out of contract at the end of next year anyway, so basically what we have done is speed that process up and secure future options on him.”
I watched a video on the story of how star trek was created and all the behind the scenes things going on. He made this as a recurring bit/stinger.A fun week for the fans but it is also kind of sad to see behind the curtain. We all think all these people are multiple steps ahead of what's going on and everything is planned and poured over and all will be correct. No, we learn they are all as fucked up and impetuous as we are.
I learned many years ago from a guy who would know, contracts for racing drivers are the most flexible legal documents ever created. Nobody wants to bind themselves too fully to another party so there are always clauses and stipulations and dates of action and recovery points from inaction and etcetera. All this will be quietly worked out in various hotel rooms in 5-star locations and we will only see the confirming Tweets.
This is really no different than any other racing league though.It has always (in my many many years of watching f1 lol) seemed really weird to me how the majority of the teams and drivers aren't even trying to win, they're just taking up space. Even the Dallas cowboys TRY to win, and try to improve, even though they know they suck. But Williams, haas, alfa, etc seem content to just putter around in last place. So odd.
Alpine: “We have spoken with Mclaren and come to terms to send our driver, Oscar piastri, to them in exchange for Daniel Ricciardo”Question will be if he can accept his role in a lower team. Alpine makes the most sense but any team with a vacancy will be chatting with him
