    I said early on to my father the race was over as soon as Vettel pulled the gap and the penalty. Shame we didnt get the wheel to wheel race between Seb & Lewis
    Its not crashing it's drifting with style

    WTF???
    Vettel will catch him before the end and win whatever so may as well pit and save second.

    Why haven't they pitted Hamilton yet?

    This is silly. Everyone is more than a second a lap faster than him!

    If he doesn't pit again, the 5 seconds will be added on at the end. It's a 5 second time penalty, not a stop-and-go or a drive-through penalty.

    Merecedes have been spoiled by racing only each other. Now they have to race other teams they appear to have no idea.... silly strategy could be costing Lewis 2nd and maybe 3rd if Kimi gets his act together

    Hamilton will need a VSC or SC to save his race.
    the longer he stays out the worse it gets
    it is lap 40. 17 laps left with super softs is doable
    and a faster tyre.
    they bothced the strategy as soon as vettel pitted and they did not react with either driver.
    oh well.

    p2 is still available if he pits soon.
    and i am just dissapointed with borttas for not even being competitive with vettel
