    Lewis stormed from pole to victory last time out in Canada, in one of his most convincing performances on track, cementing that this championship will go right down the wire. Sebastian suffered the wrath of young Max opportunistic start but powered back up to 4th after a nose change.
    Force India encountered the controversial issue of team orders, a charging Ocon requested that he be able to freely attack Ricciardo for the podium finish, the honey badger maintained position as a stubborn Checo declined Estebans invite to move over.

    Elsewhere Kimi presented us another lacklustre performance, later hit with issues. Hulkenberg shined in the Renault, Grosjean recovered a point and Alonso retired.. again..

    Baku last year was underwhelming, drivers and fans alike just didn't warm to the track layout. Will things change with our new look/performance cars?

    *Robert Kubica carried out a successful private Renault test, amid talks he could be replacing Palmer sooner than we think*

    I'm reserving judgement till we see some practice times. I don't see this being a Hamilton circuit.

    I have 3 points, not 2.

    I really want someone to lose it in that corner and get the car wedged sideways, it reminds me of Destruction derby on the PS1

    Haven't decided who to go for yet. I really want Vettel to win here to add some more spice to it all......... But don't know if the Mercedes chassis will work here or not.

    I might wait for practice times.

    Looks like Renault and Red Bull are going with more or less flattening their rear wings

    if only he'd lost it a couple of feet further up the road, I could've got my wish.


    Do I get a point for calling it?
