    I think Stroll coming back from Self Isolation lack the time in the cockpit to dialup his performance back to where he was before. He would ramp up in the next race, l am sure. That said, Perez is making a strong point about being dropped when his replacement is not looking good in a Ferrari that is able to make 4th in Q3.

    What has Bottas got to do to beat Hamilton? Once again, he seemed on top of it. He was the man to beat all through the weekend and in most of the qualifying until the very last moment when it mattered. It is exhausting going against such talent and falling short most of the time.

    Although a Hamilton fan, I do feel for Bottas. It's almost like Lewis puts just enough on the table to make Bottas think that he's got one in the bag, then he brings another chip out from his pocket and takes the pot.

    Leclerc 4th and vettel 15th tell us it is more than performance going on here. Ferrari are not bothering with Vettel anymore. That gap is simply telling.
    Yup at this point it might be fair for all involved is to release vettel from his contract and stick in one of their gp2 guys. Vettel can go on and prep with Aston Martin and away from the bad situation and fwrrar can stop pretending like they care at all about him.

    Despite his comments towards Hamilton and his work on social justice. Its still a shame for that to happen on a human level

    The hiring of Vettel (which has certainly cost a boatload of money) is a total mystery to me. Aside from ensuring that Stroll jr. can look good against a former world champion (which he definitely is not against Perez), or for the PR exercise for the Aston Martin brand, this makes no sense. Vettel seems washed up, time to retire. Same as Alonso if you ask me, I believe that was a stupid move from Abiteboul.

    Very sad alright. His comments were bang on and it was great he told it like it is. He didnít deserve this. I wish him well.
