    Lets face it. Vettel & Ferrari are plain faster. Pretty much every race.

    In China he was 5th and got within 5 seconds of Hamilton. The other two races Seb has been miles ahead.

    Bottas one of the most silly places to let Hamilton through

    Well Mercedes done the right thing in terms of putting Vettel under pressure. Thats all they can do and hope Seb makes a mistake. It is very unlikely.

    at the end of the day. hamilton did cost himself the 5 seconds. and that might be the difference.

    Lewis backed off at the end so it doesn't look like his penalty is to blame

    There were some pretty exciting scraps over nothing behind Ocon in the final points position.

    I think Vettel had the pace at the key moment early in the race to take advantage of Merecedes poor strategy.

    Yes you have to give Ferrari credit for going for an attacking strategy and making it work.

    Someone pitted the lap before Vettel (Ocon?) and immediately did a purple middle sector on new soft tyres. At that point it was clear the undercut would be powerful, and I think Ferrari reacted decisively to that.

    Bottas sucked in this race. Reunite Fred, and The Boss in 2018!
