    Yup. Good replacement in Hulkenburg though (presuming he passes his rona test). Perez went to visit his mother in Mexico after she'd had an accident. Poor sod. No symptoms though, which I guess is something.

    Safety car holds back the Mercs for a few laps. The next mini league could be a good battle today

    Lewis lapping a second quicker than Verstappen and more significantly, half a second quicker than Bottas. <yikes>

    They’re both cruising around. Boring.

    Can’t believe Leclerc is keeping the tugboat in fourth.

    There’s such a disparity between the cars right now. Such a shame they’re keeping the same regulations into next season. Two years of boredom I’m afraid.

    Extraordinary ending to the world’s fullest race. If only RBR hadn’t pitted Max! Lewis deserved that though.

    What a shame they pitted Verstappen - BUT no way they could have predicted that coming at Red Bull

    Bottas finishes out of the points. Surely World Championship number 7 beckons for Lewis.

    True, but Bottas was the only one who had any sort of chance of stopping him. I do feel for Bottas today. His tyre went not much before Hamilton's and yet he finished 11th while Lewis won!

    Watching on plus one due to work, so late to the party but what a finish that was! The Thunderbirds were right, anything could happen!
    And what a lovely candid interview with Lewis after. No soundbites, just his view on an emotional end to the race. Nice.

    I like Noah Lyles and hope he has a long and successful career in the sport. I like the way he has addressed the Coleman issue and the message of taking personal responsibility when testing is due. He feels that Coleman has let down Team USA, especially in the 100m relay.
