    So you’ve seen the end of a move... and made an assumption. His tyres are gone... quite obvious.

    They don't care about their number 2 driver, as long as their golden child is OK.

    Well done Vettel, showing you don't need team orders for a win. Great result.

    Ricciardo disappointing there at end. Must be hugely underpowered as stated prior to race.

    Lewis so lucky again.

    Racing incident at the start that gets a fellow driver a 10 second added to his pit stop (without that he would of been in front of him)
    He's in by far the fastest car and drives through the field easily upto 6
    safety car works perfectly for him, gifting him some places.
    Team orders to get his team mate out of the way

    He is by far the luckiest driver ever.

    Still, quite a good race, at least some things happened this time. Well done boys, hope we have a few more like that soon.

    I know, the fact that he beat him is amazing and shows it is possible to beat him, even with the team against you.

    Lewis Hamilton driver of the day? Really?

    Should be Mercedes engine driver of the day as it did most of the overtaking.

    A bit childish from Lewis there.

    Wandering off when he obviously knows he has responsibilities.
