Lewis would have won that if not punted off. Even with the bad start. Given his pace with a damaged car that is absolutely possible. Räikkönen robbed us of a fair duel for the victory.

No doubt Ferrari excuse will be their tyres would never have lasted. Maybe true, but they should have tried to run them to the end. I doubt they’d have lost that much if they had been forced to pit nearer the end, than what they lost anyway.

Vettel lost the race because he was too greedy on the restart. With the benefit of hindsight, he should have stayed behind Bottas and just waited for the race to fall into his lap. At the time however, it seemed like the best chance he had to retake the lead. The important thing was being ahead of ...
