    Hulk at AM bout benefit AM.
    Hulk at AM would benefit Vettel by giving him down time away from racing to get his head together.

    What is not to like ?

    Vettel should have left. He is going backwards, hardly forward. Each race that is sub-standard in results weakens legacy that survives. Bad idea. He provided a history to F1. Let it go.

    I think Vettel just wanted to be hired by another team, rather than end his career being fired by Ferrari. AM can already tell he's not going to bring anything to the table. I doubt Vettel brought any sponsorship of importance. They'll let him retire after a few more races, and bring in Hulk as a cost effective replacement to be Lance's wing man and help him fight for upper mid-level points.

    His presence does not make me desire or not desire an Aston product. I could care less who drives in F1 vs what road vehicle is on offer from that company's team.

    Leaving after Ferrari made more sense. His skills have been put on notice the last 4 years. They just are not that sharp.

    To be fair on products of this type of cost, no matter the driver I couldn't be persuaded to buy their cars whether Iiked the drivers or not...

    Big fan of the Mclaren team now but don't like any of their cars. Wouldn't have one.

    Big fan of Max and when AM was their primary sponsor...didn't fancy any of their cars. Nor would I like a Honda today...or a can of red bull for that matter:D
