    Another lucky win…!! Ferrari and VET are obviously so much better, they just need to fix the tyres problem and HAM can even retire, he won’t see another PP or win in F1!

    1. ……………………?

      hahahahaha!

    3. Yes I was also amazed by that extremely lucky win given how he started on pole and was consistently faster than other cars during the race.
      He should have finished last given his poor performance all weekend.

        Yeah, when Pirelli supplied car no.44 with special tyres (in a good way) and car no.5 with another kind of special tyres (in a bad way)…

        1. @corrado-dub WTH hahahahahaha. Dude go get some sleep after you delete your comments, if you have the access to.

        2. @corrado-dub, I expect that a lot of people are going to say that you need a bit of extra tinfoil for your hat – you do realise that the tyres are intentionally allocated by random selection in order to ensure that there is no way that the tyre supplier can influence which team gets what tyres (a process that Pirelli insisted on)? Not to mention that you are, in your shrieking incoherence, not even able to explain what incentive Pirelli would have to act in that way.

          1. I think Lewis sneaked at night and switched Ferrari’s tyres for bad ones with Pirelli’s help. That’s probably why he missed the events earlier this week.

      2. Why do you have to slag a British driver I allways say jealousy will get you no where

      Hahahaha… oosh…

  2. Was pretty boring for the first 49 lap, but then what the hell happened?!

  3. was a fun race until the pit stops which then just strung everyone out like they tend to do.

    race would have been better if non-stops were possible like the 1993 race i watched last night.

    Beautiful, beautiful race. Bad luck goes around, the headrest setback has been balanced out, we are back to a proper championship.
    Pole position, led every lap, fastest lap, won the race – Lewis Hamilton is my driver of the weekend, far and above everyone else, just amazing.

      His car was… ”far and above everyone else” too!

      1. That’s called constructors effort. Mercedes deserve what they produced and they should be proud.

        1. It’s Ferrari’s own fault that they’re so far behind in development

  5. What da hell did I watch on the last 3 laps??? This was absolutely crazy.

    Anyway, horrendous weekend for Ferrari (damn I am so sad), but that was just a fat fat underscore to the lack of pace this weekend to match the Mercs and also the mistakes by the team yesterday and today. Plus Vettel has not been on good form either. It just all came together and exploded (pun intended) at the end.

    Please, Ferrari, pull yourself together. I really don’t want to wait 11 more years.

      Maybe they should have a talk with Pirelli, something’s fishy here. Mercedes running so well with these tyres… and Ferrari not… doesn’t seem right at all!!

      1. *Whining Ferrari fan detected*

      2. ………………………….?

      3. Russia… Monaco… Tyres worked much better for Ferrari. Depends on the track.

        I’m pretty sure you’re trolling, but you never know with some F1 fans…

          Yeah, yeah… and that was when HAM (and fans) started to troll that something’s wrong with the tyres, because they weren’t working for him as he wanted, while working for VET. Things changed completely now, time for the others to start trolling (me included).

          1. …………………………….?

    Fantastic race – fantastic result! Vettel got bitch-slapped by Verstappen! Ha! Ha! :-D

    1. Well, Verstappen´s race would have been over right there if not for the run-off at the exit of Stowe…

      It was Vettel´s line all the way and the only way Verstappen was able to defend into the next corner was by illigally extending the track. Then, he pushed Vettel off the track but unlike Verstappen, Vettel was sensible and backed out of it.

      Very shady stuff from the Dutchman and then he deserved a penalty for moving under braking a lap later imo. Also, finishing just 1 spot infront of RIC who started at the back is telling.

      1. They both eased each other off the track (VER and VET), the cars in front of VER were a lot faster than him today there really wasn’t more he could. RIC came from the back and was easily a lot faster than the cars he over took. VER was still ahead and a pit stop in front of RIC. I’d wager that if the roles were reversed we would’ve seen a similar thing with VER coming from the back.

        Both RBR drivers did well today, glad MAX had a working car, pity about the slow pitstop.

        Vettel went of track too with four wheels. They both pushed each other of the track and from what i heard they were both fine with it.

      3. Also, finishing just 1 spot infront of RIC who started at the back is telling.

        Yep and HAM only finished 1 spot in front of BOT who started from 9. Very telling indeed ;)

        1. Unlike Hamilton, Verstappen did have an oppertunity to finish higher up (like RIC has accomplished for the past 5 races)

    I wonder if the punctures were caused by all of that running wide.

  8. Mega job from Hulkenberg, completely outperforming the car again, has no right to be ahead of the Force India’s, let alone about 30s ahead.
    Would’ve been nice to see if he could’ve stayed ahead of Ricciardo if he didn’t have the derating issues, but eh.

  9. Enjoyed the VET/VER battle in the begin. That’s what F1 should look like!

  10. Can anyone tell me how far Vettel was ahead of Ocon at the flag?
