  1. Good race Bottas done everything right, Vettel not quite there. Really pleased to see Ricciardo hold off Hamilton to the flag. Would not want to be in Kvyats shoes right now.

  2. Great drive from Bottas. Didn’t put a foot wrong all race, even with the immense pressure from Vettel at the end. A couple of things I’ve noted that may have gone under the radar

    1. From a personal view as a fan of his, what on earth was Renaults strategy with Hulkenberg? Pit him early so he’ll come out not far ahead of the leaders and will lose a lot of time letting them through? Great idea… Even though he had a bad start he could’ve got points with Palmers strategy…

    2. In what universe does Vandoorne get a penalty for costing Raikkonen probably just a couple of tenths under blue flags, but Perez gets nothing for literally defending position from Bottas and costing him a couple of seconds? Is it because Bottas just got on with it and didn’t whine down the radio? And then Perez costed Vettel half a second at the end of the race as well… With no penalty, whil Vandoorne gets a drive through for the tiniest thing… Very strange stewarding.

    Also, rip Verstappen. Can’t catch a break. I mean he wouldn’t have been in that position if he’d had an ok start, but still…

      @hugh11 My cynicism says that it’s because Raikkonen is driving a Ferrari but with no action or even investigation (that we know of) for what Perez did with Vettel shows that the stewards just pick and choose. Raikkonen just closed in on Magnussen under braking and he whines that Magnussen held him up? Give me a break. You will lose a few tenths getting that close to backmarkers, so stop whining.

      I do think that blue flags should be enforced more strictly since we get backmarkers holding up faster cars for more than three corners. Magnussen did nothing wrong in this case, though.

      And if I recall a jump start penalty is a drive through (Alonso China 2010). The guys one Sky were thinking of a five-second penalty but that is way too lenient. You never know with F1 stewards of course.

        I mean Vandoorne, not Magnussen

  3. Palmer the new Gutierrez

    1. Kyte is new pastor

  4. Great season for the WDC , BOT getting in the mix.

    But what a sad one for Max again. A bad clutch 1st and then hit by ALO. Will the bad luck end….

    1. Hit by ALO, true but kinda unfair, ALO was already a passenger after been hit by KIV

      1. It wasn’t ALOs’s fault of course

    Good job for Grosjean finishing 6th. Could have been a better weekend for Haas since Magnussen was really quick this weekend as well.

    From what we’re seeing, the Mercs can’t overtake a Ferrari or a Red Bull. Red Bull had a lot of pace and was almost up there with the winning cars instead of 30+ seconds behind. It seems that at the end of the races, the Ferraris and Red Bulls are quicker than the Mercs and can even withstand a DRS attack.

    That makes it impossible to recover positions if you’re unfortunate enough to find yourself behind.

    What were you guys saying about Kvyat and Sainz last week?

    First Sainz, now Verstappen… Just like last year – only this year he’s collecting his teammate and Red Bull cars…

    I suppose if you’re going down, you might as well take them all down with you :)
