The Silly Season, not so silly,
Don't discount strategic thinking when you hear talk of , say, Webber talking to Ferrari. Ferrari may or may not have had an interest in signing @aussiegrit but that "conversation", which certainly did happen, had the net effect of forcing Red Bull's hand early.
What does that mean? that Ferrari has potentially forced Red Bull into not having the team they would want to have and they have limited the option of the driver with the most raw speed in F1, Hamilton, to move to a new situation he clearly was looking for.
Call it silly if you want.
