Re: Safety Cars Determining the Championship

You really can't blame SC or VSC for what may appear to be a lottery finish. If you're doing that, you may as well simply blame drivers for crashing or maybe for attempting to actually race! If the safety car was used today for example, we have had next to no finishers at all. Just look at what happ...

Re: Sergio Perez and Esteban Ocon

We'll if it makes you feel any better, Perez is my favourite driver on the grid since JB retired and I feel the same.

I'd love to see him jump into the Ferrari seat when Kimi finally retires. But sadly, I think that's doubtful.

Hope they move that quickly and get a few laps racing still.

At least it'll quiet the conspiracy theorists about Haas helping Ferrari in Oz now. That really didn't help Ferrari at all then.

Why should we need to give Kimi the benefit or the doubt when he did nothing wrong?

This is just people who look...

Re: Mercedes Strategy

I don't think you're giving Bottas enough credit for his drive last week. Yes, he couldn't make the pass on the 1 lap he had the chance to, but until 10 laps to go when he started pushing he was driving to his given delta fully expecting Vettel to have to pit again. Mercedes strategy was sound for t...

No pre-race or post race coverage. Boring commentary and no interviews from the pits. Also, how come we hear so much from Hamilton's radio and so little from everyone else. This type of coverage is certainly not going to increase F1's popularity in the USA. :thumbdown: We had pre-race "On the Grid"...

Couple of laps more and Bottas had Seb... To be honest he should have had him anyway. Hamilton would have made that move stick IMO. Max, ALO, RIC, HAM all make that move on the last lap. Bottas bottled that, and Merc will remember it. Strong drive from Vettel, fair play to him. Very watchable race ...

With 5 laps to go, Bottas was lapping 134.6, Seb was 135.6, with a three second gap. Bottas should have had DRS for at least two laps. For last two laps, Bottas was lapping 136s, and barely getting DRS. Bottas choked, doesn't know how to pass or doesn't have the killer instinct, or all three. Botta...

Don't know how anyone can't vote for Vettel and Gasly.

Without retirements, Gasly would probably have finished 7th, but still a great drive. And Vettel managing to finish on those sorts was incredible.
