That was a very artistic crash from Aitken, to be fair.

Mercedes are such an awful team in the pit lane and with strategies.

Running out of laps because of the stupid rule of letting lapped cars passed. Why do they deserve to unlap themselves?

Now this is where the likes of drivers like Lewis Hamilton make the difference

George can still do this

Bottas should win this now, but Checo is going to make it very difficult I think.

What were Merc doing??

I think there testing George in every scenario

Good start check
Lead the race comfortably check

Let’s see if he can race in the pack 😅

I’ll be gutted if he doesn’t win

Not all over for Russell. He has the fresh tyres.

I'm annoyed by the safety car because I wanted to see how the midfield battle was going to play out.

One broken wing to remove from the track and still the safety car is out. Are Mercedes supplying the safety car on the basis that it gets lots of track time?

Aitken crashed bringing out safety. Merc double stacked and mixed up the car tires so had to bring George in a second time. Utter fiasco

I mean, I think it would probably be more cool to see Perez win...

But still horrible horrible luck for Russell

Predict Russell to finish second, Perez first

Perez from last to first. What a drive if he can keep it here. But Russell will be quick on the new tyres.

Worth noting that I believe the front wing was collected before we lined up behind the safety car.

safety car and the restart at the end of germany last year was where russel has messed up. He will maybe have to try not to take too many risks.
