    Surely that's a black flag offence didn't Senna once get DQ for doing that?

    Bottas certainly wasn’t giving him much room.

    Looks like Bottas did move right but probably to take racing line for upcoming left hander. So maybe 50/50 blame

    Bottas moved right, but there was still space for George. He got spooked and overreacted I think.

    It really will make the race if Max's car goes boom. But then he's dominated this race and fully deserves the win now.

    I feel we shouldn't lose sight of the fact Russel was overtaking Bottas for position in a race where Bottas didn't have a car issue.

    50/50 for me, Bottas didn't really do anything wrong, but didn't leave quite enough space. George was going for a fair, but slightly risky move and touched wet grass.

    Well, not in the crash. He did wrong by getting lapped by his teammate at half distance and battling a Williams in the Merc.

    All of this is giving me a great excuse for not having time to mow the lawn after the race. <cheers>

    The beauty of F1 is you can have three or four favourite drivers and in a race like this you can watch it all turn to crap for most of them!

    How is Sainz in 4th? Everytime I saw him he was off somewhere.

    Thinking about it I'm not sure they should have allowed unlapping at restart. Lewis could finish on podium when he really had a free lap!
