Hardly worth betting in the bookies on Max, you'll only get your stake back and a bag of nuts at 1/2 now.
Interestingly Alonso is at 8/1 and Leclerc at 9/1 so Chas under pressure.

I did ALO, LEC, and RUS after testing. The odds they were at makes it fun but not looking likely.

I'm seeing rumors that he's going to McLaren. Any confirmations?

I saw it so much I just assumed it was confirmed. Interesting hire.

On Aston, was it just Fallows they got or did they take a bunch of other Red Bull people?

No one can beat RB this year, the championship is over. They took at winning design and refined way beyond anything else on the grid. Everyone else is still trying to figure out their car. Newey has too much experience with ground effect cars and hes brilliant.

Merc just brought back James Allison, hes not Newey but also a brilliant designer. They have some serious work to do but I can see them improving.

Ferrari is still recovering from the Harry Potter era, and with their politics and unrealistic expectations will melt under pressure until the culture changes.

Aston might be a flash in the pan, I want to see a few results before I jump on the bandwagon. Although Alonso has taken the team up a notch.

So the MB era is over and we have a Red Bull one. The Formula 1 cycle continues. I don't mind it. RB beating Mclaren win percentage would be cool with 23 races. The mid field battles will be awesome.

Still very excited for this season.

This. Max may be the best pure talent ever to sit in an F1 and want to see record after record go to his name.

As also said last year, I subscribe to the view of many that this circuit does not belong on the F1 race calendar. It's way too dangerous for the drivers. Should an accident happen injuring or killing a driver, everyone will agree that it was irresponsible of FIA to include this circuit. Last year Verstappen made no secret of that.

"Max Verstappen slams ‘dangerous’ Saudi Arabia track after horror Mick Schumacher crash (March 27, 2022):

I can not believe the new Jeddah circuit was approved by the 2021 FIA safety regulations !
The Jeddah street circuit has several blind topspeed corners surrounded by walls !
This while Spa-Francorchamps had to invest '80 million Euro's to make the track wider with run-offs to make it safer ..

I really hope that Jeddah will be canceled by the FIA in 2023 !

Indeed a very interesting video.
It looks a bit that RB got stronger at the points where Ferrari was stronger last year.
And it looks like Ferrari focussed on getting more top speed the RB had last year.
Still the RB is significantly faster.
Of course how much downforce the cars have is also a matter of choice.
Baku will show if the RB's really lost on top speed compared to Ferrari.

Max still can get mechanical problems or being rammed of track. That can happen to anyone sadly.

But on pure performance and skills it's unlikely Max doesn't make the podium

In other words : The 2023 RB19 is extremely well balanced and very fast in the corners of the track .

The excellent balance gives an advantage in reduced tire wear .
And as usual , MAX won't take prisoners ...
