I was watching the race and baby sitting, plus commentary was in Russian, and I couldn't get all of it. Can someone explain to me what were the strategies of Verstappen and Leclerc? Was Verstappen faster due to fresher tyres and Lerlerc was trying to make his last until the end? Did Ferrari throw th...

Re: The Official Lewis Hamilton thread

Hamilton will win this year and next. It is clear as daylight to the disinterested observer. F1 is broken and the Mercedes advantage cannot be overturned. Bottas is not good enough to challenge him consistently. We are just going through the motions arguing about stewards and penalties.

Other than a couple of years of Hakkinen, who really challenged Michael for any period of time?
