    Not a good showing from Bottas in this race. He certainly do not deserve that seat.

    Yea, Alonso kept his head down and took whatever opportunities that came his way. A solid drive of a champion. That said, the real stars of today were Hamilton and Verstapenn, both were in a league of their own

    Except for Perez ramming into a couple cars, and watching people get frustrated trying to get by Sirotkin, the race was kind of a borefest.

    Ferrari rolled the dice on pit strategy and lost, and TBH I don't think Seb had the pace regardless to challenge Lewis. Kimi and a lot of others ran long on the Ultrasoft, but in the end the increase in tire towards the end of the race didn't help much really. Lewis and Max both ran a brilliant race, and Max has to be commended for not diving in late at the race start, as well as seemingly controlling pace and not pushing things until Seb pitted.

    Too much aero influence with dirty air and no long straights equalized the cars quite a bit as far as lesser handling cars making easy passes with DRS.

    Both Renault cars in the points, and Alonso taking that Mclaren to places we wouldn't think it could reach usually.

    There's no way in hell that Arrivabene would let Alonso back into Ferrari, though.

    Now, if the boss' head were to roll after a failure to snatch either championship after having had the fastest car, well, the Spanish diva might just get a chance.

    I think he hit Ocon intentionally as well. Where there is space Ocon is entitled to be there. Ocon was ahead of Perez at one point so I don’t buy that he didn’t see him, especially since he left his steering wheel down to the right. He definitely hit Sirotkin intentionally.

    I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, any driver that intentionally hits another should face an entire season long ban. They let Vettel away with it in Baku and Mexico last year. They had a chance to stamp it out. Idiots couldn’t even apply a consistent penalty. Gave Perez a drive through and Vettel a 10 second stop go. Now that they failed to stomp it out, I fully expect to see it happen again.

    So? Go Fred!

    Well, that was not exactly what I was expecting for this weekend. Fantastic drive from Lewis, and a calm head also from Verstappen to convert his brilliant qualifying into a race result. Vettel seems to be falling into a hole at this point, even with a car that seems faster on single lap pace.

    WTH was Bottas doing? He should have been pulling chunks out of the gap to Vettel, whose tires must have been very ugly by the latter stages of the race, but instead was giving up time every lap.

    Also, Perez. I went back and watched his onboards on the F1 streaming service, and I think he has some serious questions to answer. On the first lap, he mysteriously suddenly straightens the steering wheel mid-corner to initiate the contact with Ocon, who should have been very clearly visible to him. I can't see anything that suggests the back end letting go that would have required a correction to explain that move. Couple that with the later inexplicable collision with Sirotkin, and I don't think he'd be keeping his seat for next year if it wasn't for the money he's bringing in.
