The chances have been there time and time again for him and he's failed to deliver for a decade now, so now he holds that record. His time has come and that's fine, he had a decent midfield career. More than most drivers get. He's not being unfairly kicked out for an untalented pay driver.
I'm not even saying he shouldn't be gone, but his car let him down far more often than he let the car down.

If he had Perez $ he would still have a drive.

4 podiums out of 200+ races or however many it was says way more about the cars than the drivers. Especially when he consistently outpoints his teammate.

Minus this year since Ricciardo is a very clearly superior driver.


Hulk wasn't the only one to blow it at Germany this year, either. Hamilton, Bottas, Perez, Sainz, Leclerc all spun as well.
