I maintain that I had the correct idea (Bottas over Hamilton) and circumstance screwed me out of a well-earned victory. :x

TUSCAN GRAND PRIX

Lewis Hamilton won the first ever Tuscan Grand Prix at Mugello, followed by Valtteri Bottas and Alex Albon.

Hamilton got off the line poorly and was quickly passed by his teammate and briefly had Max Verstappen alongside before the Dutchman dropped back with a power unit and was eventually punted off track and into retirement. This enabled Charles Leclerc to move into third position on the day of Ferrari’s 1000th race start.

As the race got underway following the resulting safety car period, there was a big pile up on the start/finish straight which resulted in four retirements and eventually a red flag. On the restart, it was Hamilton’s turn to pass Bottas with a move around the outside of turn one to retake the lead. Despite holding P3 for several laps, Leclerc eventually dropped down the order as he passed by a strong of quicker cars including Lance Stroll, Daniel Ricciardo and Alex Albon.

Ricciardo held the upper hand in the battle for the final podium position as he was able to undercut Stroll at the round of pitstops around mid-point of the race. However a second red flag was called following a high speed crash for Stroll as he ran in pursuit of Ricciardo.

At the second and final restart, Ricciardo capitalised on another poor start from Bottas before the Fin re-passed shortly after. This meant the battle for the final podium position was between Ricciardo and Albon, which Albon eventually claimed with an excellent move around the outside at turn one.

Ten of us scored eight points courtesy of predicting a Mercedes 1-2 led by Hamilton.

There was little change at the top of Individual Championship. The only change towards the top was Mayhem dropping slightly behind Icemanjee1 and Espo.

Team TBD jumped up to second thanks to their double score but they remain 28 points behind Drive Sauber.

We are now past the halfway point in the season and just eight race remaining. Can anyone close the gap on Remmirath, or will it be a double for them and Drive Sauber?

Next we move to Russia - can anyone prevent a HAM-BOT-VER podium?

Half tempted to put Max in at P2, just because Bottas not even finishing 2nd at a track he's considered strong(er) at would be peak 2020 Bottas. But not worth the risk.

This is what I considered picking, but chickened out. Your fate is either what I escaped or what I second-guessed myself out of.

RUSSIAN GRAND PRIX

Valtteri Bottas took victory in the Russian Grand Prix ahead of Max Verstappen and teammate Lewis Hamilton.

The drama started before the cars reached the grid as Hamilton was placed under investigation for conducting two practice starts outside of the designated areas, for which he would later receive two five second penalties.

Hamilton got a good start from pole position and retained the lead out of turn two despite Bottas having a brief look around the outside. Verstappen had a good initial launch but was quickly overwhelmed by Bottas and Ricciardo. Verstappen did re-pass the Renault later in the lap to reclaim third position.

Hamilton controlled the pace early on before extending his gap ahead of serving his 10-second penalty at his one and only pit stop. This dropped him down to 11th place and allowed Bottas and Verstappen to jump ahead of him in the order. From there on it was pretty uneventful as Bottas took victory for the first time since the season opener with a controlled drive.

The only competitors to score points today are those who correctly predicted a Bottas victory, so well done to those seven.

Remmirath was one of the seven and their Championship lead is now 14 points. Teammate Espo also scored five extending Drive Sauber’s Team Championship lead to 38 points, it is now looking hard for anyone to stop them winning a second consecutive title.

Next we head to Germany for the Eifel Grand Prix. Will it snow?
