It will be hard to go through first two corners without a crash, yet I hope they all pass it unscratched. Hard to predict, but I guess Hamilton and Max will still steal the show. I hope Vettel surprises. too.

Re: Vettel and his Ferrari drive

In my understanding, Vettel likes cars with more downforce. All of his mishaps are a copycat of each other. He looses the end of the car. I'm baffled to why Ferrari did not take this in consideration, building the car with more downforce. His domination ended in 2014 when blown difuser, which added ...

Penalties justified 100%. Reverse is not always applicable but is a good solution. If a car sits on the kerb, like Vettels car, it will slowly move until it touched the concrete, then it will move fast forward - exactly what happened with Vettel when he hit Stroll. The same might happen with reverse...

There are risks which never will be removed from motorsport.

Gasly was not ready, and not really quick. His 4th place in Bahrain 2018 was not a measure of anything.
But why not Kvyat? Albon is more prone to mistakes, and lacks experience as much as Gasly.
