    Great start by Kimi!
    And another costly mistake by Vettel...

    And Ferrari again screwing up their strategy; I don't quite understand why they didn't bring in at least one of their drivers during the VSC.

    Bottas needs to pass verstappen. But as usual he is just driving around with no urgency or zeal. The guy doesn't know the meaning of aggressiveness or competitiveness
    Useless driving

    It is amazing how they botch things up. I don't get it.

    Congrats Kimi! First win since 2013. His 21st (and maybe his last) win also makes him (in American terms) the winningest Finnish driver of all times, surpassing Mika Häkkinen.

    Delighted Kimi got that race win. He deserved it.

    Championship goes onto Mexico and, barring reliability, Hamilton will probably seal the deal there. Only needs 5 more points to be champion now.

    Whoops!

    To me it was pretty obvious at the moment: the only driver who could get a free pitstop at that point of the race was Hamilton, since he'd get behind Bottas, which meant a free pass. Everyone else would have ended up behind rival cars and at the time it wasn't unclear whether overtaking was feasible.

    Pitting Vettel might have made some sense, or it may have not. It could have given him a free pitstop which brought him closer to the podium, but it would have also sent him behind and forced him to overuse his tyres overtaking slower cars, so a second pitstop would have been necessary and it's difficult to say how that would have panned out - but I doubt they could have got it any better.

    (Edit: well, obviously Stroll and whoever was in front of him could also get a free stop, but I'm ignoring them for obvious reasons.)
