    True but thatís probably the reason they only won one title. Hamilton has had plenty moments where heís crashed or refused to give up a corner, his battles with Vettel and especially Rosberg got nasty at times. Lately heís had the luxury of not really having a serious challenger so has been able to take a far more pragmatic view when things get a bit hairy. Hamilton has a challenger this season and you can see the formidable competitor that he is coming out again, he wonít back down to Verstappen and there will be more of these incidents between now and the end of the season.
    Thing is, Lewis knows when to hold and when to yield, he knows itís on.

    Max will only ever win a fraction of what he could as he only ever does one thing. Heís just not clever enough.

    I would agree with that to an extent. Heís still young enough and heís not as rash as he was when he first came into F1, if he wins the championship this year I think youíll see a more mature driver next year.

    i wouldnít be surprised if thereís some behind-the-scenes stern words for both of them from the powers that be, theyíll be terrified of someone getting seriously injured, there may be some serious threats of punishment if there isnít a bit more common sense applied

    Absolutely gutted for him. He kinda brought it on himself by refusing to come in but the team should've been much more forceful. The whole team will learn a lot from that today though which is no bad thing.

    I was massively impressed with Max today on that damage limitation job he managed to pull off. With Lewis likely having to take an engine penalty at some point within the next few races it really is game on in the drivers championship.

    Such a tough call to make when your in the lead. As Mercedes said afterwards it was an easy decision for them as they were racing Max not Lando.

    Heís a fine young driver and Mclaren are a massive improvement so hope he gets his win soon.

    Itís looking like a wet race today. Hamilton starting down the grid should make this a good race.

    Howler of a decision from Mercedes. Absolutely no idea what was going through their heads. Lewis right to be enraged.

    If Hamilton had came in when he was first told to he wouldíve had had a much better chance of finishing 3rd. He was 1.5 seconds a lap slower than all the cars around him. Even if heíd stayed out heíd have been passed by all the other cars. Occon didnít pit and was 4 seconds slower than the car behind him on the last lap.

    Occon lost 17 seconds on Stroll ahead of him as well after Stroll pitted. Although I'm sure Hamilton's tyres would have lasted it would have been the wrong call IMO.

    Great battle. Championship going to go to the wire.

    Brilliant tactical battle there. DRS at the end helped Max over the line but overall great race for him and Lewis.

    I really thought Lewis was going to pass him, but Max had just enough left. The next 2 circuits are traditionally strong for Red Bull, 2 wins for Max could see him very close to his 1st world championship. Somehow though I donít think it will happen like that, thereís been so many twists and turns this season it will almost certainly go down to the last race.
