    Ocon was very deserving of the third step on the podium more than Bottas did, I thought. Bottas did his bare minimum for Mercedes this season....

    I think Hamilton suspected that Verstappen was up to something that could be bad for him if he pass. He knew he had to take precautions not to get...

    true, Hamilton was trying to use the slipstream to slingshot pass Verstappen, just as Verstappen realized that the DRS detection point was fast...

    We have criticized Verstappen for some things. What we have not done is praise him for some of the great driving that he did during the race. He move...

    It is interesting to note that the difference in the constructor's points is the difference of the points of Bottas to Perez. Bottas is 28 points...

    Controversy is what makes F1 racing exciting. There has to be a villain or two, a tight battle. Inter team rivalry and finger-pointing at each...

    We had doubts at Baku, what great races, that venue produced. We would warm to Jeddah in time. It is different, quirky and nerve-wracking. But pure...

    Engine braking is considered braking. The tecpro barrier was not dangerous enough to need replacing. It was shuffled back into position which they...

    The problem with that approach is, it discourages teams from taking the initiative to give the place back but carry on until told otherwise. The...

    He probably was penalized because he could have pulled to one side rather than slow on the racing line.

    It is a bit like the Ricciardo and Verstappen crash in Baku, both drivers in the Redbull if you recall.
