For me, it was a bit too risky a move by Vettel. I thought the move was okay and he was mostly along side, but Max is not really a driver to take risk with. Wonder did he know Verstappen had the 5-second penalty, worst case he should have been able to pass during the stop
Tbh, I'd say whatever deal was made between Mercedes and Williams would be quite a financial benefit to Williams anyway. Both their seats were available to buy and Mercedes probably just had a better position to get one of the seats given they supply the team their engine.
Leclerc, Gasly, Norris, Giovinazzi, Russell mean a lot of good youngsters on the grid next year. And Stroll is young as well.
