Good save when he did a 360 and continued without stopping, straight after stopping for slicks. But yes, not his best race

It seems, with Marchione replaced, there is actually half a decent chance of Kimi being at Ferrari next year as well. It was mainly Marchione pushing to have Leclerc at Ferrari for next year.

Yes. I heard this too.

To be fair CLAP was one of those sent on inters and was quite badly affected. He was in the hunt for the points and ahead of Ericsson before that.

I won't judge Leclerc on one poor result. He is consistenly pushing the car to times and positions one can only admire. Class act.

CLAP has exceeded every expectation placed upon him this year. He's one of the few drivers on the grid who can truly go for such a gamble.

Just mentioned as such in the Silly Season Thread. :happy:

Shame, Ferrari, shame.

Should be one year for each of Mrs Palmer's five daughters. That would get me excited.
