Questionable enough move from Ricciardo there imo. No room for Kimi on the outside.

Edit: I kind of take that back from second viewing haha

How well would Hamilton or Vettel act if they were flailing around in 15th place every single race?
Vettel would do the same thing, Hamilton would be more calm in the cockpit but complain publicly a la 2009.

RIC has the time AND the pace to catch Vettel. Even this late in the race Vettel is not getting quicker.

I wonder why Kimi never protects the inside line. He would have been passed regardless but not at that chicane.

The bitching over Fernando bitching over Palmer is ridiculous nevertheless.

The Honey Badger catching Vettel would be pretty hilarious. Let's how it plays out

The level of embarrassment will be an order of magnitude higher if RIC passes Vettel.

Ferrari sucks at top speed today - Ricardo did more than 12+ mph faster down the front straight to pass Raikkonen and they are even slower compared to Mercedes, stick a fork in 'em.......

Vettel will be lucky to hang onto 3rd, when Ricardo catches him.

If Ricciardo can catch Vettel it's an absolute disaster for Ferrari. Mercedes have confirmed that the engines have been turned down for quite a while. IIRC Sky mentioned it around lap 20 or maybe even before then.

If turned down Mercedes can dominate pushing Ferrari...

Yep. Ferrari have a LOT of work to do after this race. Their engine is not even remotely quick enough. They have to bring an update otherwise they have no hope at all.

Ferrari dropping a full second per lap to RIC. Their tank is empty, nothing left to give there it seems.

Verstapen really hasn't learned anything, has he? He'll probably never be able to clean up his driving.

Well done Hamilton. Well done Ricciardo. But what a boring race ...

Ferrari faltered big time.
