Nyck de Vries loses his seat at Alpha tauri:

RIC is probably his replacement.

Yes . Mick Schumacher said that already yesterday .
Further Mick said : Ricciardo is completing a tyre test for Pirelli at Silverstone at the wheel of the Red Bull RB19 'today.
It depends how RIC is performing during the tyre test in the RB19 , from there Marko will see how it goes with RIC .
But actually the deed is already done , and De Vries won't make it anymore at Zandvoort ...
Too bad for Nyck de Vries , but he was underperforming and as we know F1 isn't a playground .

But at the moment RIC has just lost control over his RB19 (Dutch article) =>https://racingnews365.nl/video-ricci...ijdens-testdag

Lando's manager spotted at Red Bull today => https://racingnews365.nl/druk-op-per...t-bij-red-bull

Helmut Marko opens the Red Bull door 'wide for Lando Norris => https://racingnews365.nl/marko-zet-r...en-voor-norris

IMHO , There is definitely something going on at Red Bull !

Horrible for Nyck. The AT has not looked good this year I donít think it matters who is behind the wheel. But happy for Danny if true.

Not surprised RBR has jumped on Norris, not letting Hamilton through at Silverstone is a plus for him but it's just a hello from Marko I think.
Poor 'ol Lando is not having much luck with him being robbed again, maybe Marko will give him some advise to lock his valuable possessions in the hotel safe than leave them lying around in his room.

I like Ricciardo, but I have my doubts if he'll perform better than DEV. (mainly because of his poor performance at McLaren)

I think it's maybe too soon to replace DEV, a complete season would have been more of a proper chance. However this is F1, so the drivers are expected to be the best of the best. I'm sure they've looked at every aspect of DEV's performance and kept scores on multiple levels.
Hiring a new driver is an investment, but so is replacing one.

Checo's (hot)! seat is for Lando Norris in 2024 .

And IMHO , RIC will lose it at AT as well .
RIC's glorious days in F1 are lost in time ...

MAybe, but he must perform very good for that. Considerably better than TSU I think.
However he is experienced and might be more realistic about his role on the team than Checo.
The media is writing about RB wanting Norris, but if you have a championship winning car, and already a top tier driver, ideally you want a Bottas.
Norris is not going to slip into that role, I'm sure of that, but Ricciardo might.
But for now, DEV' main problem was that RB/AT has RIC sitting on the shelf.
I mean, realistically, the difference between DEV and TSU is not as large as say the difference between ALB and SAR, but I don't see them changing out SAR.
Probably because they don't have a RIC sitting on the shelf.

Yeah Hello RIC aka Mr. Teeth

Hopefully I'm wrong , but I think RIC will be even worse than De Vries .
We witnessed how 'very (bad)! RIC performed in the slower Mclaren at the time .

That's why I think RIC won't make it at AT .
AT will be RIC's F1 exit ...

That's in the back of my mind also and Checo is safe for now, if RIC does well at Hungary then kudos to him. Marko takes no prisoners so the pressure will be on mr teeth (he goes to the dentist every month?

Ya I saw that a few days ago. Seems like a dumb decision as Danny Ric appears to me to have been driving scared for the past 5 years.

While the rumor was out there, the announcement was just a couple of hours ago. RedBull's "sink-or-swim" environment sure eats up young talent.

I remember reading about how Daniel was one of the lucky few to get out of the RB by his own choice. That did not age well.

Renault signed him (for what was then) stupid money...$21m. He took the money but it came with an inferior product. The move to McLaren didn't do him any good either, but then questions arose...was it car or talent?
