    The way that the stewards are slinging around 5s penalties is ridiculous and the licence points are just lunacy. Especially Perez at the start of the race.

    Itís almost like they donít want to see any racing happen. Just a nice orderly procession.

          It wasn't the worst race I've watched, but certainly won't be rewatched. I mostly kept myself interested by keeping track of Ricciardo's strategy against the Hulk and similarly placed midfielders, to determine how it was going to shake out after all the pit stops. There was definitely two instances of penalties against Ricciardo at the end there, but points on his license is total bullshit, it was hardly dangerous driving. Perez got fucked over as well, does what's required, still in the wrong, not his fault it was a faster way through the turn.

              The Renault has got a bit of power now. He pulled past the Alfa pretty well.

                was that before or after he left the track?

                  Worst thing about this season is contemplating Hamilton may soon equal Schumi if Mercedes keep their advantage into next season (highly likely). #blessed!11111onejuan

                      Even more ironic that Michael was there while the building blocks were put in for the current domination...

                        Very true


                        So with Austria being such a high seed high flowing circuit will Mclaren out do RBR. Comparing Noris lap to Max at France the Mclaren looked better in high speed corners and straights, RBR in slow speed corners and big braking zones.

                          Yes we were robbed of seeing Schumi in a front running car one last time. Instead we are blessed.

                            MGP + Hamilton combo has been the most dominant ever seen in the sport.. given the length of time and the level of doing so. Then paired with often competent team mates to play the role of #2 and it leaves even Ferrari's best years behind imho.

                            Well done to them for being able to pull it all together. While it makes for a boring show for those of us who aren't Hamilton fans it is commendable.

                              Rosberg had the measure on him with their time together. Not much would have changed as the car got quicker. The only difference would have been Rosberg would now have more world championships than Hamilton if he had not moved.

                                Well Schuey had heaps of mechanical issues, but his racecraft was definitely a little rusty too. Got glimpses of the old schuey, in Monza racing head to head with Hamilton, the Schuey line straddling an entry curb in Singapore which everyone else then copied, and Monaco putting it on pole. But there were probably more pretty ordinary mistakes to counter those moments. Pretty gutsy move to come back at that age and put his dominant legacy on the line with a team that clearly weren't going to win straight away.
