    Does CAS even have jurisdiction vis vis Formula One apart from doping infrigements? I have never heard of a single F1-related case being decided by CAS, which leads me to believe that there is no arbitration agreement with regard to the FIA.

    CAS, afaik, have no jurisdiction over F1 matters. Even Giedo van der Garde had to take his case through the Supreme Court of Victoria to get what he wanted in 2014. I still cannot believe Monisha Kaltenborn kept her job after such a colossal screw up she made that time.

    I know this is over , but here's one last point I'd like to make .

    Had Ferrari gotten this Canadian result overturned , the general consensus seems to be that Mercedes would have the right to feel aggrieved because they turned down Lewis's engine , instead of having him fight to get past Seb for the win .

    So , rather than thrashing the motor , presumably on the most extreme settings , Lewis was now able to turn it down , certainly extending it's life .
    With 3 engines per car per year , that could have a major effect on the championship .

    I think Mercedes would rather take the win over the promise of engine life. Bird in hand if you get my drift.

    Alright. CAS doesn't have jurisdiction on F1. But I can see them possibly doing something about the result. What, idk.

Ever the one to improve over the course of the year, Hamilton has yet to peak, whereas Bottas may have peaked already.

    One to watch with big interest. Giovinazzi and Kubica both need big race weekends as well. Both have been horrendous this year and I cannot see either with a place on the grid in 2020 as things stand.

    As for Stroll, well he has been shockingly bad and the only reason he has a race seat has been Daddy and he doesn’t deserve an F1 seat either.
    But this poses a new interesting conundrum, which of the two Ferrari drivers is likely to take his first win at this track? The aspects of the Ferrari car that has bothered Vettel are likely to be less of a problem on a track like this one. But, when it comes to all out pace, Leclerc is the one Mercedes would be most worried about. Most would probably say providence owes Leclerc a win after the one that got away from him in Bahrain.

    l think the stewards do that on other occasions but in this instance where they should have been consistent.
