    At least Lewis hasn't had team mates sign on to be lapdogs.

    Granted, Ferrari were pushed, probably should have lost 03 to Montoya until the FIA stepped in to help. Merc have not really been touched beyond the first half of 17 and 18 - but a lot of that can be placed on the shoulders of Vettel.
    2015 pretty much showed us what to expect for the next few years.

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.
    Almost putting Barrichello into the wall was a highlight of ruthless Schuey

    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.

    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.

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

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

    Feel for Lando - was driving very well.
    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.
