    well, no battle at the front, but plenty of action elsewhere, shame Max drove over Vettel's wing, but I think the Mercs were in a class of their own today.

    It's about time they gave the team member a bottle of Champagne to fight back.

    Great job by Lewis, although circumstance made it a nice Sunday drive. Good recovery by Seb although they will regret not pitting him under the safety car. Nice to see Ricc on the podium, unfortunate for Ocon and I'm sure the FI debrief will be interesting!

    On the subject of strategy. Merc have always refused to split strategy, Ferrari accused of fixing at Monaco and Croftsh1t talking croftsh1t about Kimi being moved out of the way today on the 2nd pit stop.

    So Any questions on why Bottas was pitted 10 laps earlier than his teammate, put into traffic and on a slower tyre for a longer period? Bottas was totally fooked today and with no threats from behind.

    That race will have taken its toll on Vettels PU. He's not exactly flush with spares either...

    People call conspiracy no matter what happens to either driver in either team.... I mean, Kimi's brake failure was rather convenient. :D
