Would have signed Hulkenberg instead of Perez, tho.

Both Gasly and Albon were talented drivers in the wrong team. You can't pair Verstappen with a young talent, he's going to eat them alive. You need a more experienced driver: Webber and Ricciardo did great at RBR. Perez will do too. I don't expect him to match Verstappen in pure speed, but in a race, he could do score podiums and even a win or two.

It was an obvious choice, unless they resigned Ricardo who wouldn't have gone.
Perez clearly beat hulkengerb 2 out 3 years, and easily beat Ocon both years at force india.

One year testdriver for Albon is’nt that bad, he gets time to grow without any Max pressure, and for sure “I’LL BE BACK” :thumbsup:
He's 24 right now, wasn't able to keep up to his teammate (granted, is arguably the best driver in F1 right now) and doesn't have a car. I think the chances of Alex getting another F1 ride at this point outside of Alfa Tauri are pretty slim. My guess would be we've essentially seen the last of Albon in F1.

Lets see if Perez can keep up with Max, don’t think so, then not much is changed.

I don't think anyone can keep up with Max, but I would expect Perez to be closer. Either way, I doubt we'll see Alex again in F1 unless the junior team needs a driver. I'd be shocked if he ever got another ride for a top tier team.

That is a very nice change of fortune for Sergio Pérez. His constant performance at Racing Point did not secure his seat there but eventually found its reward in a better team. I hope he keeps his form next year and the Red Bull duo gives Mercedes a hard time.
