I’d really like to see Vandoorne have a second chance. Despite my unhealthy love for Alonso,I’ll happily admit that Vandoorne was more than close enough in quali to suggest he has the stuff whch his lower-categories form suggested he had. Plus Vasseur knows him inside out and could surely squeeze the max out out of him.
I’m sure Ferrari will be paying a decent chunk for Kimi, though I shudder to wonder how many pounds of flesh they want in return.
PS: there are some stories / rumours that Kimi will buy some equity in the team, presumably from the Tettra Pak gang.
