Just outstanding skill from Verstappen.

Verstappen keeping this pace could achieve 1st after his stop.

Hamilton easily had the pace and the lap times are already good on the slicks so no chance for Max.

Rosberg lost almost a second per lap from the safety car to slicks. Very poor from a driver who is trying to be champion.

Palmer's got a pointless penalty. Serves no purpose what so ever.

That Palmer penalty is BS, they got him back and stuck the wheel on - no harm no foul! This nanny state F1 gets ever more frustrating

Hard to know if Lewis is just managing the gap or not.

He almost spun. Though it shows he is pushing hard, Vettel also was pushing hard.

Alonso giving the strategy team a bollocking on the radio, some things never change at McLaren with their uber-conservative approach to strategy

How is Ricciardo so far back? Did he get completely done by the VSC?

:lol: Favourite moment of the weekend.

Crofty: Why are there blue flags being waved for Kvyat?

Brundle: Because he's a lap behind.

Do we expect the red bull a pace to drop off as it gets drier?
I'd like to see rosberg get past max and go after Hamilton
