If true, 2019 with a totally new car built around the Honda PU smells like disaster to me. Add to it a Verstappen unchained (did you hear Verstappen on the radio to his team in Abu Dhabi? They had to put him in his place!) and freaking Gasly and I fear they will be an inconsistent mess.
And I hope I'm wrong. We need Red Bull/Honda and the Renault Works team too in the mix.
