This will run and run. Why would Mercedes spend a huge amount on their
own drivers and then sign a driver from RB? Tonto has plenty of inside
info on Ocon and Wehrlein, Ricciardo's personality is unknown to him.

Is it too cynical to suggest this is Hamilton trying to back Mercedes into a corner and not have Daniel signed because he fears having a chilled, talented guy in the team to upset the current balance?

Ricciardo isn't chilled, he has a tendency to run to the media every
couple of weeks whenever he has a problem with RB. Mercedes had a
'talented' and whinging driver before and everything turned to rat shit.

Chilled is a relative term in the F1 world!

Ocon is not only 'chilled' and fast but is also already a Mercedes driver
with experience running in the top 10. To my eye he's everything (some)
people said Wehrlein was and then some. Also his salary is much less than
Dans. With that in mind it *is* unlikely Ricciardo will join Mercedes.

Lewis Hamilton has signed a new contract with Mercedes, it will be announced at the British GP. And, probably contains a veto.

Some might say that Lewis already has a “chilled, talented guy” in the team
