I really hope Max or Charles win it this year. Its not that I dont like or rate Lewis, He is absolutely top drawer.. I just think its long overdue someone elses turn. We just need Red Bull or Ferrari to build a better car than Merc.. BUT.. Is Albon good enough to play the wingman for Max? Would Seb be willing to play the wingman for Charles? I think that is where it could fall apart for them.

210 @Paulo 'Would Seb be willing to play the wingman for Charles?' _____ Well, if they're cunning enough, that could work for them. They'd keep Mercedes guessing who to put their money on. I think that worked for Kimi & Felipe back in 2007?

But after CS Snr winning the Darka rally (again) wouldn't it be good to see CS Jnr hitting the top step with the McLaren?

@216. Its unlikely McLaren will reach the same heights again but yeah, that would be really cool. Both Sainz and Norris were excellent last year, it would be great to see them able to mix it with the big 3..

I think Leclerc will be Lewis' main threat this year, although I think he will fail because of his rivalry with Verstappen, there is bad blood there that will cost them both eventually.

289. Delboy. If Ferrari or Red Bull do build a dominant car I think the biggest problem facing LeClerc or Verstappens bid for a WDC might be their own team mates. Vettel would most likely not support Charles bid. while Albon may not be quite in the same league or have enough experience to support Max as a wingman. :/
