    Hamilton has fastest lap, and I can see still him getting 2nd, could still lead the WDC.

    Bottas the wingman. Bringing out the red flag to aid Hamiltons recovery.

    Hamiltons really got his head down since the error and red flag. One more car and he's lost nothing.

    Cracking race - big credit to Lando and Max for the outstanding drives.

    Sainz and Le Clerc very impressive all things considered too

    I agree. I know rules are rules but giving anyone a free lap after a mistake is not fair on the drivers who didn't make a mistake.

    I enjoyed that race, had a bit of everything. Shame Max couldn't have had a ERS issue for the closing laps to add some final spice but his 20s winning margin summed up his drive today.

    If this race isn’t the final nail in the coffin of Bottas at Mercedes I don’t know what is. Wasn’t he lapped by Hamilton and Verstappen? He should never have been in the position where a William’s is trying to overtake him. That’s just embarrassing.

    Much as it pains me , I have to agree .

    As you know I am a huge fan of his , but something has gone very very wrong . For the good of the team , give him 2 or 3 more races then drop / rest him .

    I still hope he can turn it around ...
