Thank you for the info guys. Seems like Merc overthinking again "rain", "SC", hope it won't cost them a race that should have been easily theirs.

If Max is going to send one it has to be soon so he has time to pull 5 seconds.

Hmm maybe, it was posted earlier that Bottas only went 2 seconds quicker than Hamilton when he set fastest lap.

Verstappen is such a... Feels like this guy can't do anything without causing a collision in 90% of the cases he tries to overtake, such a bad decision making.

Glad it wasn't a puncture, but how was it not? So many tiny touches of the rear wheel end up in a puncture.

Ok, struggle to see why that is of any relevance to how high the victory is rated compared to his others though.

That Mercedes is a monster. Pulling away from a car with DSR and better tyres is just unreal.

More power and the rear wheels were in great conditions according to Sky coverage.

I'm a Ham fan, but you're right, he moans way too much, when it isn't the case.
He's an undisputed champion, but he can be such a toddler at times.

The teams talks to him the way my daughter talks to her cranky 4 year at the end of a long day when he missed his nap.

"You can do it, you are special" etc.

The rear tyres were still good it was the front tyres that were gone.

So true. It's straight out of the Early Years and Key Stage 1 training manual at my school!

Hamilton's silence after the race doesn't make him look mature. Like a stroppy child for making his afternoon difficult.

The Mercedes pit wall queueing up to congratulate Hamilton on the radio, presumably to draw some of his ire when he comes into the garage.

They all do it though don't they? It's always the other drivers fault. And tbf what he said was actually accurate. Even if Hamilton didn't do anything wrong by doing it.

Lol Ricciardo won last year with a car that was 5 seconds slower per lap, Mercedes need to save us the rubbish.

At a certain point in the race Ham said it would take a 'miracle'. Well, he did it, and it seems without too much difficulty.
Jeez Lewis.

Let's face it though Mercedes messed up and that collision with Verstappen could have finished his race.

Agree 100%. The great circuits we've lost due to lack of money yet Monaco still exists. I mean, Sky showed a huge film during build up which was the Sky team going on jet skis with the Alfa drivers. Utter crap.

Hamilton does moan a lot. Ricciardo won with track position despite being 150 bhp down! It was great drive though, probably one of his best.

I can't take to Max at all.
