ahh Russell's got this one. I made the mistake of letting myself hope Stroll would be at least somewhat effective.

Bottas is on far older tyres though. But that doesn't take anything away from Russell.

Whatever happens Russell has driven a superb race and I think guaranteed himself a Merc drive for 2022.

IDK I'd rather see Perez win, despite the fact it should really be George's

If Russell can get withing DRS range with two laps to go, he will win.

If Russell had been wearing Lewis Hamilton's helmet would anyone have been able to tell there was a difference?

BTW....why the heck didn't Mercedes bring Bottas back in on the next lap - like they did to Russell - and onto the correct tyres?

So after all of his good efforts Russell is still going to end up without a point. Terrible luck.

Mercedes shot themselves in the foot with the double stacking I think.

I can't feel any pleasure in Perez winning, although I will in time. It just feels so bad.

That can't happen unless he also scores a championship point.

IF he wins it will be fortuatus for Perez but lets not forget he was last after lap 1 and he would have been third without the good luck. It's been an incredible drive from his.

Interesting to think if Lewis was driving today what may be different. Or not.

Perez pulled out 10 seconds on a man his team mate can't keep up with either.

Looks like there is a chance he can get in there and get some.

Meanwhile Albon in the middle of nowhere - that's it now surely it's Perez in the Red Bull next year and Albon back in the Tauri
