Comedy gold. Would recommend.

Found it funny how initially it was "If you let me pass" and 5 corners later it become "What are you waiting for??" :lol: :lol:
kimi is the best on radio :thumbup:
He sounds too out of it for me. Alonso takes it for me.

McLaren: "Box now, box now"
FA: "Booox? *enters pit* For what??"
MCL: "Inters"
FA: "It is not wet enough for inters. I TELL YOU WHEN TO STOP!!. Now tyres are destroyed and when it rains we need to stop again."

:lol: :lol: :lol:

Leclerc having a bit of fun, while Bottas passes Kimi.

Ridiculous conditions for slicks, but nobody wants to pit.

Believe so. When you commit (pass the bollard), you cannot go back on track, I'm pretty sure.

No idea what the penalty, if any, would be handed out for him.

Hamilton is a far far superior driver then Vettel. Ferrari need to get a better driver.

I have to say it's slightly satisfying to see Vettel lose points on his own mistake compared to Hamilton who did so with no fault of his own in the last couple of times.

They should.

The more interesting part is that Mercedes were adamant, he should come in and he overruled them and stayed out.

hummm....... looks like Kimi is on the right tire, but Hamilton's prayers have been answered today and both him and Bottas appear to be sitting pretty.

IF I ate popcorn, now would be the time to get some......

He's probably right, track position is king.

Merc definitely called Lewis in (radio broadcast), so what's the scenario with an intentional abort after crossing the pit entry marker?

That will go down as driver error. But I wonder how much the grip and tyre performance lost behind Raikkonen played a part? Ferrari did not make the obvious move soon enough.
