    The stroll interview is funny lol. He doesnít understand what happened to his pace. Simple answer. He pushed his tires too hard and then was unable to get his 2nd inters to switch on and had a few shoddy laps.

    And Perez is 41 points ahead of stroll in p4 in the WDC. It was a dumb decision to release him from the Racing point seat. One that looks more ridiculous every day. Perez and Hamilton are the only 2 drivers to score in every race they participated in this season.

    Congrats to Lewis on his 7th WDC.. really wasnt expecting him to win today but that was a very befitting drive to clinch it. Fully deserved.

    Unpredictable but enjoyable race IMO..

    With the new super slick surface and the conditions being so poor, I was thinking anyone who masters that deserves it..

    Was it pure luck of being on the right tyres at the right time? Did he not deserve pole?
    Right tires right time. Actually I was more impressed with him today and RPís decision to switch him to new intermediates cost hims solid second place. It worked to Checoís advantage as they then knew not to switch. I still donít think he deserves a place on the grid. He has flashes every now and then. This weekend was a flash, I doubt itíll continue.

    Delighted for Vettel today. He deserved some luck this season and he drove extremely well.

    Mate, you keep on mentioning money and rich, not me. Seems like youíre the one with the issue here.

    CONGRATULATIONS LEWIS HAMILTON - SEVEN TIMES DRIVER WORLD CHAMPION

    What a topsy torvy race. Redbull underperformed today. This was a race they should have comfortably won. Verstapenn showed he still has some learning to do, to be in the league of World Champions properly. He has the speed but a measured head to win the war and not the battle is still not in his experience. Albon was too cautious which is evident of him not wanting to make any mistakes. Thus, playing it safe rather than take a risk of going for the win which was realistic for him really.

    Racing Point also showed that they do not have a race winning team on their pitwall. This was a race in the bag that got away due to some poor performances by the pitwall and the pit crew. That four second plus stop, cost Perez dearly. That said, Hamilton may have passed him eventually. Both cars just sapped away their speed advantages as the race went on. They have not extracted the full potential of the awesome car they have. Which would suggest that they have some way to go to be on Vettel's standard when he joins them next year.

    One thing is clear, Racing Point got rid of their most successfull and loyal driver; Sergio Perez and they know it. Now they must live with the guilt of it as they head towards 2021.

    What a drive from Leclerc. He almost stole 2nd position from what started out as a sad day for him. The wise old head on Vettel got him comfortably onto the podium, from what has been a disastrous year of racing for him. We see the smiles again and are reminded of what a great driver he is.

    Bottas had a nigthmare of a race. His race got from bad to worst with each lap, as he spun nearly every other lap. Then was lapped by his teammate and his nearest rival Verstapenn; whom has taken a chunk off the difference in points between them.

    I can't believe Lewis won this race.
    Best driver ever, in my opinion. Just incredible.

    This was Hamilton at his very best. On his back foot but just hanging in there carefully. Only pushing to maintain position and bidding his time. From 6th to 3rd in the first lap and dropping back to fifth after a moment off track. Then just letting the track come to him.

    Today was a day of rekoning of each driver's true experience. And experience took Hamilton to the front of the race and the win. As he demonstrated what sets him apart from the rest of the field. SPEED, JUST IN TIME STRATEGIC THINKING, ABILITY TO READ THE MOMENT ACCURATELY. And incredible car control on literally bald intermidiate tyres, to be fast enough to stay ahead and bring the car home for what seemed an unlikely win for Mercedes.

    Experience also kept Perez in 2nd place while Stroll faded away to 9th and lifted Vettel to 3rd. The rekoning also exposed Verstapenn's inexperience and punished Ocon severely. And deprived Stroll of a win that was his to lose.

    This race is special for Hamilton also, because he won the championship and his seventh driver's title with an unlikely race win. Not on percentages or number of points, as he has done on most of his other titles. But capping it all with a brilliant win.

    He won it in the most deserving way to become a seven time world champion. Even Schumacher would have been in awe of his performance. Every world champion with four titles or more would trully appreciate and acknowledge the brilliance of this win. After this race, the record books shall be rewritten at every race onwards. What a fantastic experience for us fans.
