Certainly it would be unsurprising to see Mark Webber depart Milton Keynes at the end of the season, but what of Sebastian Vettel?
If SV keeps up his insubordination, i.e. setting unnecessary fastest laps, petulant outbursts on the radio, and of course the obvious, his charm offensive will eventually run dry with Horner and co.
Another factor to consider is that after three, maybe four or five titles at Milton Keynes, surely the time will have come to move on, not least to keep things fresh from the perspective of both parties.
We saw it with Michael Schumacher, he was cast aside by Ferrari two years after his fifth consecutive title, the relationship had simply reached a point where everything had been achieved.
It is entirely feasible that Vettel could leave Red Bull at the end of 2014, for an outfit such as Mercedes.
There’s no chance he’ll be at Ferrari as long as Alonso is there, but in the interim, if he keeps up his behaviour from Sunday afternoon, Vettel may eventually force Red Bull’s hand in looking towards another direction…
