    So Red Bull have just thrown away 3rd place by pitting Verstappen there.

    so much to talk about.
    congrats to Force India, both cars in the points again
    Ricciardo was on fire, at the end RBr finished a strong 4 & 5
    That ferrari debrief will be something to behold
    Bottas drove a tactical master stroke
    My Man Hulkenberg solidly in the points
    Vandoonre with a strong p11
    Massa salvages a brutal weekend

    The mercedes looked superb today. and for once, their strategy was on point.
    (on a side note though, Force India and Williams should be asking a few questions about their Mercedes spec engines, they seemed to be significantly less powerful than the works team. I know mercedes are usually open about delivering "somewhat" equal engines, but the deficit to their customers was drastic today)

    I think Vettel's tire troubles came from his battle with Bottas and the massive lockup on turn 16 during that battle. It was that left front tire that must have gotten a significant flatspot and that is probably what resulted in the delamination late in the race. In retrospect, they probably should have pitted him again well before that

    I am really happy that Kimi salvaged p3, he deserved it.
    I am not sure Verstappen would have taken p3 if he stayed out. It was a precautionary stop that secured p4 more than anything.

    what drama

    Fantastic race.

    5 British GP wins for Hamilton - amazing! Well deserved, he was the quickest out there all weekend!

    Biggest point to me is that Karma finally got Vettel in a very deserving way! Nobody deserved that tire blowout more than he did. I still think he should be removed from the championship but this does as a very nice substitute indeed.

    In two weeks time I'll be at the Hungarian GP. Looks like Mercedes have resolved their tire issues now so I think, if Hamilton wins there convincingly, he'll move on and win the championship. Roll on Hungary!

    Well that was interesting...

    Great race from Hamilton, and I'm pretty sure a grand slam, although I haven't heard anybody mention it yet. Pole, win, fastest lap and led every lap of the race. I think that makes him second all-time behind Jim Clark.
