Patchwork F1 2018: the latest news and rumors of the paddock

Mattia Binotto

It's closing the F1 2018 World Cup strong>, the seats are closing and little by little we know what is the grill and everything that will bring us the start of the next season. However it seems that the surprises are not over, and some teams could be a real powder keg, as is the case of Ferrari which is the one that is always under more pressure, but it seems that this year takes the prize for having lost the World Cup having the best car ...

And it turns out that Mattia Binotto , one of the architects of this great Ferrari could not be too happy in Maranello, at least not because of the presence of Maurizio Arrivabene , who seems to have started an internal war between Binotto's power and his own. A fight they deny before the media, but it seems that there is a tension to put themselves in charge of the team. We will see how this ends, but already in Mercedes and Renault have set to work to fish in troubled waters, and as they did in the past with other technicians, both teams now want Binotto.

BRatches, Carey and Brown

Renault is being strengthened a lot, has already signed good technicians and now also have Marcin Budkowski of the FIA ​​who knew all the projects of all teams to be one of the technical inspectors of the agency. So he will have brought good ideas to the team, but now they have also made an offer to James Allison to come back and also want to get hold of Binotto to improve the Renault engine. Something that is disputed against Mercedes , who also wants to keep Allison and also want Binotto ...

On the other hand we have the FOM and Liberty Media that are already preparing ideas to make a big farewell to Fernando Alonso . This is what Brawn has said before the cameras, although he has not specified what it will be like: "We have many plans. Of course we have things in mind. Fernando has had an incredible career and is someone very important in the Formula 1 paddock, so we want to celebrate his time in F1. We have several ideas, but they are not yet finalized. "A big farewell and something special is expected in Abu Dhabi, the last GP this season.

Finally, Vettel in the eye of the hurricane. Brawn himself also spoke about him in the previous GP, and the driver David Coulthard has spoken of him, although they are not the only ones, every time they join more and criticism from Italy continue, now they wonder why the performance drop in the German. Even Vettel himself has acknowledged his mistakes and says he should analyze it this winter ... But Coulthard has uncovered a possible bomb, Will Vettel return to Red Bull? : " He is a four-time world champion, committed mistakes. He says he is tired, when you are tired, you choose your comfort zone. From the time he has been with Ferrari, I have seen him at Red Bull more times than ever in recent races. He is putting the batteries with his comfort zone in Ferrari. It seems to me that not only is he tired of comebacks, he's just not as happy inside the team as he was at Red Bull. ". Will he be looking for his return to RB if in 2019 Ferrari tires of it if he does not win?
