    Bottas shouldn't be making mistakes like that, think his mind just isn't in it anymore. Pity.

    His tyres look pretty ugly.

    And go on Bottas. You tell 'em!

    No idea how Hamilton can defend this once Max arrives.

    Try to keep all four wheels on the track when you overtake Max.

    Think Perez is showing that he should have a red bull contract for next year.

    Sounds like both Merc drivers suggested 2 stop would be best!!!

    Bottas wasn't best pleased at all. Can't say I blame him. Had the faster car and we're undone.

    Caught napping again. Being dominant for many years mean they don't have experience of racing like this maybe.

    Overall the French grand prix we wanted!

    Actually saw overtaking at this track for once. Bottas will be happy after the team didn't listen to him again, at least they managed to not **** up his pit stop for once.

    Why didn’t they bring Bottas in for a fastest lap after being passed by Perez, or were there not enough laps left when it happened?
