    I think Max might be going for a 2 stop! They have very skinny rear wing so overtaking should be OK but tyre wear might mean 2 stop or maybe hards then mediums? Looks like there are a few different strats with Charles running big rear wing!
    Could be a great race if everyone can avoid each other.

    I'd love a clean race from all. Feels like a while since we've had a great race that has been without controversy.

    Missed quali, (typical!) so looking forwards to seeing how the race unfolds, expecially as there should be a bit of rain.
    Go McLaren!

    gotta give him credit, he's seen what Max has been allowed to get away with over the last few years and is using that knowledge to push the limit of the rules.

    Well if the plan was to use Bottas as a blocker, that was pathetic.

    Maybe Bottas is paying back not getting a contract?

    And there, ladies and gentlemen, is why Bottas is completely useless as a team mate.

    This is both exciting and incredibly dull.
