Truth be told, it sounds like BS to me. I wouldn't really expect anything less of Bernie.
My trust in this person is badly shaken after several actions and pronouncements on his part, but fact remains, that his is not a conditional statement, unless of course I read it incorrectly, which is entirely possible. I am assuming that he knows what he is talking about, rather than conducting an idle, speculative talk. (Why media would let him get away with misleading public then)?
I have been probably wrong about Mercedes’s public stand. Media might report on the event when time is up, but as with the others, signing the CA might be done quietly and without announcements. Choice of drivers will be probably a different matter, and I do expect headlines soon, but only after CA is off the table.
