Instagram reels are not our friends when Ricciardo announced that he will depart McLearen a year earlier, bit with young Oscar alleged to have signed on this one has suddenly become a whole lot messier. Mick has cut ties with Ferrari, Alonso has nabbed Sebs seat, Gasly is being courted and suddenly we have one hell of a mess. But who will be the winner by the time the music stops?
It was a clinic like no other as Max put the first nail in Leclercs championship coffin, a case of what might have been. The big question now is when will the title fight be officially over?
