Disappointed Leclerc didn't do better in those conditions. Russell and Norris (again) were outstanding. Sainz and Ocon too. Hamilton and Verstappen up where there should be in those conditions - but there was only one rain-master today.

It's a movie at the end of the day, not a documentary and in this regard, it does the job - it's entertaining and the racing scenes are excellent. I really enjoyed it - I went in to watch a movie not to criticise the inevitable changes to make it entertaining for the masses.
