A bit of a shit tht RP pitted Hulk for tyres with 6 to go but then left Stroll out, even though they had mirrored each others stops all race. Surely a case of maneuvering to make Stroll beat Hulk.
More like trying to get Stroll into 5th, which was useless as Albon made short work of him.

So everyone simply forgot that Lewis slid into the pits with locked tires, clearly struggling to get the speed down? Not even "noted"?
I thought that looked a bit suss too. He had to be speeding from the look of it. As you say, not even noted even though Lewis felt he was too fast. :roll:

Hamilton has already 30 point on verstappen. The championship is almost done
Drop the word "almost".


The Championship was already done last week. Hamilton will be champion this year. And next year too, because the cars will be essentially the same. And just look how Mercedes treats Bottas. And add his race pace.

I think Mercedes said he was fine, whatever that means.

It doesn't require investigation, he either was too fast, or was not. They will find that out instantly.

On the other hand...I do have little feelings of mistrust creeping in lately. E.g. Someone making a decision whether to apply a penalty based on whether it would make it entertaining or not.

Embarassing that Bottas is behind Max. You can't even use last week's non-score as an excuse, as Max dnf'd the first race of the season.

This victory places Verstappen above Bottas with amount of victories. 9 to 8.

They've quickly handed over another brown envelope.
Just watched a few laps but nothing has changed really. A clubmans championship in aid of a six time champion to get him his 7th.
Reminds me to some of these club meetings TT racers go to compete in order to get their 6 signatures together.

If Mercedes only would let race both their drivers instead of manipulating the result of the water carrier.

As I said , these few laps were pretty much enough to switch back to BSB at the time.
This 'championship' isn't worth the time.

If you compare verstappen to bottas you put him so low. Pretty evident that bottas is in mercedes because hamilton doesen’t want a real rival in the team

A few laps are simply enough these days.
