    Can't argue with that logic bro. The guy is just plain amazing! He has single handedly brought this season back too life.

    I think race pace is going to make it hard for the reds tomorrow, but Leclerc is driving the crap out of that car.
    Overtaking is bloody hard on this track, if Leclerc can get it off the line well and stay in front, Mercedes would have to fiddle with their strategy to see if they can steal track position and the race. The best strategy and tyre management would determine who wins it tomorrow.

    But what a lap from Leclerc!

    It left Hamilton feeling humble, Vettel looking beaten and Verstapenn feeling he is in a different race. I think the narrative has changed this weekend. Verstapenn has just been given notice that Leclerc is the man he has to beat in the future. Leclerc in a fully resolved Ferrari is going to dominate the grid even as early as 2020.

    With six races to go, it is a longshot for Leclerc to win the drivers title. But the two youngsters gunning for 2nd place have qualified ahead of Bottas who is currently 2nd. With only 39 points between Bottas and Leclerc, it is looking like Leclerc is going to be in 2nd place by the USA GP, l venture to estimate. If these last few performances continue.

    Hamilton is not his problem at the mo. He is bleeding points and he has to get his act together before it is too late.

    So apparently it was a communication issue between Bottas, Hamilton and Mercedes. Bottas was waiting because a RBR was in front of him going slow, Hamilton did not have this information in hand and thought Bottas was going unnecessarily slow for no reason which was going to ruin his own qualifying lap preparation so he passed Bottas out. A misunderstanding that can be avoided in the futhre.

    This is how the drivers championship stacks up with 7 races to go[including this one].

    Maximum points available - 175 points

    Current Point scores:-

    LH - 284
    VB - 221
    MV - 185
    CL - 182

    Lewis Hamilton needs 113 points if Bottas wins all 7 races remaining to win the championship by one point.
    Lewis Hamilton needs 77 points if Verstapenn wins all 7 races remaining to win the championship by one point.
    Lewis Hamilton needs 74 points if Leclerc wins all 7 races remaining to win the championship by one point.

    When Hamilton scores more than 112 points in the next few races, the 2019 driver championship would be over. Or 4 wins and one 4th place.

    Almost time to roll off. This will be a critical start for everyone at the front.


    Let's just hope Seb doesn't manage to take out both Ferrari's.
