The stewards and race director really need to be held to account after this weekend.

Hamilton will have to warm those inters off. First lap is often slower.

So ultimately will they change F1 so they don't race in the wet? Speculation on my part of course but this compromise doesn't seem to be very good.

There's a difference between caring for drivers and going too far. Drivers themselves said it wasn't too far from inters on lap 2, so surely wets are adequate. It's a joke to have the SC out and then the drivers pit for inters or dries straight after. If they are going to do that, save money and don't bring wet tyres, sorry, SC tyres to the races anymore

I think Mercedes have secretly imposed a team orders 1-2 finish already for this race.

Laughable from F1 which is rapidly becoming the norm.
