Fabulous, fabulous race, despite the obvious result.
Cmon...there was ZERO competition for the win, you won’t get aroused for a 5th place incident
That's the only thing that let the race down, but don't forget that HAM and BOT were wheel-to-wheel and swapping positions in the early laps of the race.
I’sorry. It doesn’t count they are wheel to wheel for a fraction of a second if the team decides that hamilton must win by stopping bottas 10 laps before they should. That’s not letting them race. They should award hamilton the cup on thursday. At least we can focus on third place since the beginning.

There was plenty of good racing today, shame that there was a SC car to muck things up. Did Gio suffer a suspension failure or did he screw up? I'm none the wiser.

Been in the air all day. Just watched the race while waiting for a connecting flight, really enjoyed it. Some great racing, hard battles and immense overtakes.

Vettel now 100 points behind Lewis in the standings. The odds of anyone other than Hamilton winning the championship this year are close to nil.

This statistic is ridiculous. There is no competition, only 3 teams winning and one getting a 75% win rate. Ballast them

It’s even more ridiculous when you consider the amount of wins that Vettel / Ferrari have thrown away during that period, plus not forgetting that they gift wrapped two titles to Hamilton and Mercedes. Stats don’t tell the full story.

While Ferrari/Vettel is throwing away victories, Mercedes is ensuring they won't make those mistakes. Like i wrote months ago: You don't need to be dominant when the others are making mistakes. Stats do tell the story. Results count. To finish first... You have to do everything right.

Well that’s not strictly true as Mercedes made plenty of errors in the first few years, either through questionable pit strategy or Rosberg giving Lewis the odd shoulder charge. And yes, Ferrari have spent years making the same mistakes and then add Vettel’s errors, you’ve got two years of snatching defeat from the jaws of victory.

The stats tell the final score, not what happened in the game.

Let's also not forget that Ferrari only entered one driver up until this year.

Funny statement. Nevertheless if ferrari had won a bunchr races more, we would have the same sole 3 teams winning in 5 years. You are looking the finger instead of the moon.

Yep, entirely right. And only a small handful of podiums for two other teams. I must have misunderstood your original point, I thought it was a pro-Ferrari thing. I got it wrong.
