The 2020 Formula 1 season has been a rollercoaster ride. We lost a few regular tracks because of COVID and saw some new tracks this season. We saw two new race winners and a lot of drivers changed bid farewell to their teams as they move on to a different team next season.
Meanwhile, Formula 1 had taken some time out and asked the drivers about a few of their predictions for the season. Coming towards the end of the season, the drivers read out their predictions.
One common denominator in these predictions was Lewis winning the 2020 drivers championship. Daniel Ricciardo had the same prediction. However, Ricciardo also had a peculiar prediction that did not really come true.
Looking back at his prediction Daniel Ricciardo said, ” This one didn’t happen, but I really though it would. Vettel goes to Red Bull. Yeah, I thought it was a nice little long shot then. He did leave in the end but not to Red Bull.”
Who moves to Red Bull?
Sebastian Vettel won his four championships with Red Bull before moving to Ferrari. It’s hard to understand how Daniel predicted a Sebastian Vettel move. Maybe it has something to do with why he moved from Red Bull to Renault.
Farewells are a somber affair. Bidding goodbye to someone close is sad for everyone involved…
Sebastian Vettel made the move but to Aston Martin. Racing Point rebranded themselves as Aston Martin for the next season. The German will hope that he gets the car that he deserves from his new team.
Meanwhile, the issue of Red Bull‘s second driver is still wide open. Alex Albon did not have the best of the season, as he was far behind his teammate Max Verstappen for most of the season.
There are a couple of names that could be a potential replacement for Alex Albon. The primary contender is Sergio Perez and the other name is Nico Hulkenberg. According to reports, Red Bull is expected to confirm Perez.
Sergio Perez had a very strong season and won his first-ever race in Sakhir Grand Prix. Christian Horner has stated that an official announcement is coming soon and we are bracing ourselves to find out who will join Max Verstappen in Red bull next season.
