Vettel did an exact copy of Turkey 2010.

And of course Vettel has a hissy fit about it.

Gotta pin this one mostly on Seb, I'm afraid. He moved over pretty early before clearing Leclerc.

wow, Merc dreadful without Toto. It seems they do all they can to keep Hamilton out of podium.

Oh well, RedBull 1-2! We haven't seen that for a long time.

He has a habit of doing that in straight line for a long time.
Even at start he did that with Hamilton.
Sooner or later smth like this will happen.

Ultimately Mercedes took a big risk and went for an all or nothing approach with both Championships wrapped up.. So I don't think it's too huge a deal.

Mercedes have done a really stupid pitstop on both of their drivers. Bottas pitting after a few laps on hards putting him in the position, he was.

I love how they immediately blame Vettel. Vettel should hit the grass and crash himself out rather than race his teammate. Now watch them somehow blame Albon for this last incident. These commentators need kicked.

I'm having second thoughts now. I think there was a lot of space for Lewis to try due to poor race-craft from Albon. I'm thinking it may be deemed a racing incident.

Racing incident. I suppose you could say Vettel should have stayed straight and taken the grass, but for Charles to give a little room isn't even a consideration. Not in the least.

Hamilton got alongside Albon. Albon should have left room.

F1 has a lot to learn about yellow flags. Painfully slow getting lapped cars back in their spot.

That moment with Gasly going berserk on the radio was one of the moments of the season - what a reaction and what sheer unadulterated joy!

It could be down to the damaged front wing of Ham? It seems strange that he actually was a bit slower in straight than STR.

Listening to the radio commentary: pundits stating that the midfielders get a slam-dunk penalty but it's not the same for the front-runners.

I hope any penalty for Hamilton is swiftly applied, Sainz deserves the chance to celebrate a third place on the podium.

Albon should have. Whereas Charles has no obligation to do so. Pick a path is all I am saying.
