Vettel fully deserves dotd.

Hulkenberg was quite decent too.

Hamilton was entertaining, but nothing special given his car advantage and the safety car.

Re: France: Vettels 5 Second Penalty

I don’t think he should have gotten a penalty. 1st corner incident. I also think Bottas, could have given him more room. I don't see how that would be possible. Bottas doesn't squeeze Vettel off the track on the run down to T1, he is completely ahead at the 100 metre board and pulls another car len...
