Rosberg ordered to give up the position. I thought team orders were illegal!

Its not up to Nico To look after Lewis' race.
Not a problem, team orders have been issued to let Lewis by.

Agreed. The worst track by far. An appalling racing experience. I'm only watching because it's on free TV.

Rain musings number 4... Next year with the wider tyres will be even worst because the psi from tyre to road will be less. More aquaplaning.

Rosberg looks safe in 3rd, but 2 secs a lap slower than Ham who's closing in Ric! Woohoo :)

Yes. It was clear 3 or more laps earlier that Rosberg was just going nowhere but backwards.

Good to hear team orders again though.

Actually another poster has a good point - aren't these sort of radio transmissions supposed to be illegal?

Massa botched Vettels race by being so slow. And Kvyat ... well, Kvyat. I assume, this will be his last season in F1.

Max passing cars left, right and center again... This guy!

Edit: and 2-3s quicker than Rosberg who has a clear track.

Sky just reported Rosberg has brake problems, hence the pace difference.

With Rosbergs pace he could lose more positions at the pit stops if others pit before him

I'm sorry that James Hunt isn't still commentating, he would have been most unambiguous about that move from Kvyat.
