I'm thinking Renault may be a possible home for DR, they've got the determination, and the money to get back on top. RBR may go Honda next year or the one after leaving Renault as the clear works team. Not sure Toto ready to dump Bottas at Merc.

RBR is reportedly negotiating with Honda already. I guess the engine's performance in the Toro Rosso impressed them. And in a recent interview, Seb said he could see DaniRicci as a teammate saying,"He's a good kid". Not sure Danny would want to be a pretty clear #2 at Ferrari. Since Sainz' "loan" is only for 2018, Renault might be just the place for our Danny.

Has Toto never heard of Dr Helmut Marko?  Hardly a friendly face in the Red Bull garage for drivers :D

I think you'll find Marko has always been a Ricciado fan, he's supported him for a lot of years thru other series - notably World series by Renault when results were not as high as his abilities would suggest.

I think it's Matesitchz who has ordered that Max is the golden child.
A bit like when Mark Webber thought he had a friend at Red Bull only to have the fix put in for Seb.

I would hope DR goes to Ferrari or Merc.  Renault might find their way forward or not, and climate could change and they abandon the sport before they get there.  Itís too late in his career and too early in their progress to make a move like that.

Skye would have been great, but I would rather make a trip specifically for it and some other western islands a different time.  Racing through it with one overnight (all we would have had time for) would have been a shame.  My buddy has been there and my wife wants to go, so that is a better option.  I canít speak if average Scottish weather, but to have significant sun 5/7 days is a luxury in many climates.  Sitting at the airport now I can say Scotland was a wonderful, if expensive holiday (yes, I come from Switzerland), and thoroughly enjoyed it.  I will be back.

I'm still waiting for a reasonable explanation of how Max retook the position from Danny Ric at the pit stops before the blue on blue shunt. :DntKnw:

Daniel got baulked on his in-lap quite badly by multiple backmarkers. Red Bull may have felt that given the parity of the drivers, a lightning stop for Max (which he got) would have itself created sufficient gap without having to borrow the tactics threatened by Force India's management towards its duo last year.

I hope that a similar threat was made to Max and Daniel after the race, because I think that's one of the few things that would make Max sit up enough to mend his driving (at least around his team-mate).
