If they're changing to previously used pumps won't that just solve the problem?

Yeah only thing is if takes too long, a post here said they were unsure if Lewis car would be ready for the grid. Although news sites/Twitter indicate that they found it after qualifying and have already done it.

He's just driven out to join the grid, so looks like it's been sorted?

Chase Carey not being sure how many WDCs Lewis has is a poor advert for Liberty's management's grasp of the sport that they own.

I don't think Lewis will fight Kimi too much if the Finn gets a better start...

Vettel so desperately wants to be back in a Red Bull he is literally trying to drive into the seat.

How can anyone defend Vettel as a decent racer? Driver yes, he's great, but racer? He makes so many mistakes!

Raikkonen is making no attempt to slow Hamilton now he's got that lead. I feel bad for Seb. He isn't my favourite but he is a world class driver who is just in far from world class form.

Leclerc will only need to apply the slightest pressure to Vettel to make him crack.

Yeah I don't imagine F1 teams are going to be knocking on your door for consultancy services anytime soon if that's the advice you're giving out ;)

Come on Kimi! He appears to have best strategy, pit first. Stick on softs and cruise home? Hamilton is going to have to overtake him if this is a one stopper
