  1. Bottas showing why he’s not in that car next year. Superb work by Redbull with the slipstream, it must be hard to pull off because otherwise everyone would do it every race.
  2. I wonder how much this has effected next year, both Merc and Red Bull have probably put a lot more focus into these cars than they would have wanted seing as there’s not likely to be much carry-over. Going to be an even bigger kicker to the loser if they are also mid-field next year.
  3. F1 needs to get some control back, it’s let the sport become a joke because all the drama was good for the ‘show’ but a line as clearly been crossed.
  4. Guanyu Zhou seems to be one of the best upcoming drivers, but I dont watch enough of the lower formulas to know how much advantage can be paid for in what is supposed to be equal machinary, it does seem that most of criticism he gets seems to come from people not liking China.
  5. Yeah once they've declared no investigion neccessary it should draw a line under it, it would be very unfair on Max who seemed to be cruising once he lost the lead while Bottas was clearly pushing till the end.
  6. Max didn’t even try and make the corner, let alone leave space for both.
  7. No, this is looking like it might be done.
  8. I'm struggling to think of any times this season where it felt like Lewis could have won but ran out of talent. I dont really rate Perez as anything other than an average driver so theres not much of a yardstick but I think its clear Max is driving very fast and the only criticism that can really be levelled at him is with some of his extemeness and impatience in on-track battles, but thats minor and also opinion as he only has one penalty that I recall (Monza) so he will be a deserved champion. But I also think Lewis would be too for maximising his opportunities this year to stay in touch (although he must still be kicking himself over Baku accidental button press and the lost win/2nd). I hope that the big reset next year means that we get a few more suprise performances at the front without weather or crashes causing them.
  9. They could really do with someone getting the jump on the Redbulls at the start, although Gasly would just be told to move over.
  10. Seems to have been Merc finding the perfect sweet spot bringing the tyres up to temp and Redbull not able to so I think it’s likely RB will be quickest today and use Perez as a sacrificial odd strategy to get Max a good chance at a win.
  11. From my lunch break in the park.
  12. I kind of want the Haas to be a surprise rocket next year just to see the fireworks in that team.
  13. Ocon stayed on the same set of inters all the way through and he was losing 4 seconds a lap towards the end compared to those chasing him, theres no way Lewis would have finished on the podium if he stayed out. His best chance was pit with everyone else but they were desperate for free air to take advantage of their speed advantage as it seems like this years Merc really doesnt like following another car. Redbull always seem to do well with their stratergy in uncertain changing conditions, they make much more quick decisive decisions than Mercedes.
  14. Has anyone ever tried that £10 chicken kiev that M&S do? Its just one single kiev that you still have to cook yourself, I just cant see how it can be £10.
  15. Got some of these because of your comment, another vote for best biscuits ever.
  16. As well as all the moral issues with Qatar, it looks like another bore fest as most of the new tracks are. Especially annoying as these last couple of improvised calendars have shown how great some of the older tracks they didn’t go to anymore are.
  17. Brundle tends to contribute to the general commentry alot more than the other support commentators who need prompting before they chime in, which seems to stop the main guy trying to fill every moment with words so I would be sorry to see him go.
  18. Yeah Mick's interview in the doc where talks about him in the past tense basically confirmed what one everyone suspected, he's brain dead or similar.
  19. Norris was leading, if he pitted for inters earlier then he probably would have stayed ahead, or am I misunderstanding what you mean?
  20. Such a shame for Norris, think the team should have taken more responsibility and overrule him if they had the same info as everyone else, young guy looking at his first win was always going to be too reluctant to pit.
  21. Not sure what the plan was for AJ, he didn’t really take it to Usyk or keep him away, foolish to try and match his skill and speed.
  22. Wet qualifying is normally Stroll’s strong suit, got knows it’s not his race pace.
  23. Ok thanks for clarifying, must be confusing it with Perez because it doesn’t feel that long ago in my head.
  24. Yeah the guys that guys that went early and got a few laps in on them were the ones that improved on their inter times and we’re rewarded for the gamble unlike the others that finished their second inter run.
  25. Yeah this is the kind of mixed up front of the grid I though the sprint races would provide until I found out they weren’t reverse grid. What are the rules on repairs before the race? Hamilton spanked his rear wing quite hard. Must be allowed to fix it though if Max was able to fix after his warm up lap earlier this year?
