Max in a Merc, I cannot see, the salary cost - Max and Lewis would take points from one another. Yes from a TV audience perspective Liberty would love it! History shows it rarely ends well. Whilst there is mutual respect and they may race hard/fair without resorting to dirty tricks/politics - both in one team may be manageable... I doubt it though. Same with Alonso back to Red Bull - I think Honda might have a say in this... Bottas is having a bad spell, but to be honest, putting Ocon in the seat, I am not so sure. Bottas is known to the team, fast on his day and keeps harmony. Hamilton is delivering (same as Verstappen) for their teams irrespective of their team mates... I hope Merc play the long game and look to Russell/Norris.
