The FIA need to sort some maximum lap times out. Some cars were almost stopping just before the bus stop chicane.

Monza next week too, that was a laughing stock last year.
This is a joke.

Interestingly, I think Bottas' fastest lap (by about a tenth?) denied Hamilton a rare Grand Slam.
I am sure Bottas did a 1:18.1 and Hamilton a 1:20.2.

Re: Murray Walker Puts Neck out there: HAM v SCH v SEN

The only time I ever felt that Hamilton was unsportsmanlike was in that 2016 Abu Dhabi race when he was holding up Rosberg so that others would pass him. It didn't sit well with me, even though I'm a fan. There was very little chance that Rosberg would let Max or Vettel or anybody pass him anyway a...

Hamilton is clearly the best driver in the best car. Which makes the main difference. Bottas as no 1 wouldn't win all the races in a season. Hamilton's qualifying in the wet was a lesson to the other drivers, Horner saying Max would have been 0.3 sec of if he hadn't spun was a joke. Even 0.3 sec is...

The idea that Albon squeezed Hamilton is a bit delusional.

It was Hamilton who ran into Albon. “Albon still had space on his outside” - using tha...
