  • I don't think so.  I think Ferrari learned their lesson and will no longer give even their star driver any say in who the other driver is.  I don't see it.  Ceding a management decision like that doesn't seem to be at all what Marchionne or Arrivabene are about.  If they want Ricciardo, they will get Ricciardo, regardless of what Vettel thinks.  I'm also not so sure Ricciardo and Vettel wouldn't get along unless one of them started to run away with the points.

    It's easy to be picky when you're winning championships, but Ferrari is very much a 'what have you done for me lately' team.  To even consider a veto, Vettel would have to have won them at least 2 championships for Ferrari.  (Certainly one wasn't enough for Kimi to stick around.)

  • I still think Danny Ric could do a lot worse than joining Renault, the Factory team gets stronger and stonger and by next year are likely to be heading for podiums or a win. With all the money Renault are putting into it by 2020 they'll probably be the surprise package.

    It most likely depends on whether RBR are going with Honda next year, if they are IMHO Renault will probably outscore them easily.

    But why should he make a choice on what could be worse?  He is arguably the hottest driver on the grid at the moment.  Renault have potential, but suggesting they may be the surprise package is speculative and things could all go south for them just as easily.  I still think the only two teams worth looking at are Ferrari or RBR (as long as they keep the Renault engine).
