    Also another thing to point out. Did you see how Max passed MSC aggressively and actually made contact.
    It was yet another example of him not giving his fellow drivers enough room.
    He was very lucky it didn't end up worse for him.
    But I'm pretty sure if he retired, his apologists would be on here asking for Mick Schumacher's head right?
    He does the same thing in the very next race, but crickets from the community. LOL
    you can't argue with results.

    Didn't Ocon and Russell run out of fuel as well or did they just stop their cars in random places and run to the pit lane?
    He will win , Joe , but it shouldn't look too easy .

    Notice another more than stupid move by the Merc boys to keep him out when everyone else went in .
    But , it's only stupid if you want to win .
    It was brilliant , on the fly thinking , to come up with that in less than a lap when Max got damaged , so that the whole shootin' match would be closer going into the summer break .

    It would have worked out perfectly , but Fernando couldn't hold him off until the last lap for the most spectacular of finishes against his former team mate .

    And , I would imagine Merc is in the background at Aston trying to help squeeze the needed fuel from the tubes for the appeal so Lewis doesn't get too many points more than Max here .

    Hamilton is has been very lucky. But at the same time he is very consistent, even on his worse days he still finds a way to get points. For a championship run that is very important.

    Verstappen on the other hand has only had bad luck. Secondly, he is almost a all or nothing type of guy. I wouldn't be surprised if the narrative at the end of his career is he one of the best driver who never wins a world championship.

    The lockup was due to immense pressure Hamilton placed on Alonso. With that kind of pressure, he was going to pass him at some point. He had to protect his car which was the main reason why it took so long to get past. Hamilton was driving with his head. Something Verstappenb could learn from l think.

    It ain't over until the fat lady sings. Don't write off Redbull and Verstappen yet.

    Truefan was arguing that Alonso didn't see the "big picture" - when in reality Alonso did see the "big picture".

    You are not a fat boy now are you F1nks? It is just an expression, no particular fat lady was referred to. Besides, it is not a shame to be fat. I can of like round ladies myself. It is you who is making it a shame. Which it ain't
