Re: Driver(s) of the Day - 2020 Turkish Grand Prix

Went for the podium. Nice to see Vettel back at the sharp end again. Got a feeling Perez has probably just won the race for the RB seat on the back of that too.

Hamilton was just masterful, what a way to win #7.

Re: 2020 Turkish Grand Prix Race Thread

I've got a feeling Bottas year could be over by turn 2..... tyre warm up issues on a track like ice while starting slap bang in the middle of the field is a recipe for disaster. Can see more tears for Max too if he gets racey with Stroll at the start.

I thought we were debating Hamilton's impact on the rise of the Mercedes juggernaut.
