    Awful race. Shame they don’t scrap this race as it has never been entertaining. Top job by Bottas. DOTD

    I missed the first 15 or 20 laps of the race as I was late and then I couldn't find a stream to watch. I wouldn't have minded missing the rest of the race, anyway.

    I think the fight for the championship not going down to the wire made this race very mundane. There was really not much being faught for. Bottas was a bit disappointing that he did not win in Brazil which would have made the fight for the runnerup the subject of this race. He won it but did not really have any impact at all.

    I hatethis track and always will. Mercedes and Hamilton let Bottas win, that\s my belief.
    Anyway, this is over and a new logo, a new safety, device, new streaming service, and new broadcasters for the US is not going to change anything for me unless they find a way to increase overtaking, or a least promote battles for position, getting rid of DRS, and going to countries where people actually want to watch the race. China, Bahrain, and UAE might look nice but with empty stands (China) or very few stands (Bahrain), or because of money (UAE, which means this will never go away) these tracks need to go far, far, away.

    This race wasn't horrible because when you start watching a final race in a lame duck season on a race track that's famous for processional driving, you already have very low expectations to begin with. I prepared my breakfast and ate it while watching the race. This can't be worse than anything else on TV on a Sunday morning.

    They are odd balls but very exciting racers as a team. I can do without their incessant whining about engine though!

    They should hire Alonso for that.
