Ferrari cancel press conference There were some very embarrassed and pissed-off people at Ferrari yesterday, they had planed a press conference to announce Charles Leclerc as the driver to partner Vettel in 2019, but after an embarrassing leak there were a few red faces. Yesterday morning a Facebook post appeared on the page of Garage Italia a company headed by new Ferrari chairman John Elkann's brother Lapo, officially congratulated Charles Leclerc, it was posted in Italian (here is an English translation) "Charles, we are proud to have believed in you since your debut in F1. We are proud to have accompanied you on the track, curve after curve. And we're happy to see you at the wheel of the red car". this post was quickly removed, but not before a screen-shot was taken by the Italian newspaper La Gazzetta dello Sport. The post now reads "Let's hope the dream comes true!" Meanwhile someone has posted an petition on change.org in an effort to keep Kimi Raikkonen at Ferrari, in 15 hours is has amassing over 10,000 signatures A quick rundown on how the driver market looks as of today Mercedes Hamilton and Bottas Ferrari Vettel and TBC Red Bull Verstappen and Gasly Renault Ricciardo and Hulkenberg McLaren Sainz and Norris Racing Point TBC and TBC Haas TBC and TBC Sauber TBC and TBC Toro Rosso TBC and TBC Williams Sirotkin and TBC It looks like all the plumb seats are taken, while Racing Point haven't confirmed their drivers it seems likely that they will be Stroll and Perez. Perez brings with him lots of sponsorship money from Mexican companies so it likely to be re-signed. As promised above the Nico and Bernie podcast Nico Rosberg has started a podcast called "Behind Victory" his first guest is Bernie Ecclestone (a bit of a coup in my view), well worth a listen.
