    Verstappen five place grid penalty for ignoring double yellows and Bottas three place for ignoring single waved yellow.

    But if a dull race. Lewis was 30 seconds ahead of everyone but Max after 16 laps!

    Good to see Alonso get a podium.

    Not sure what Merc were thinking leaving Bottas out so long on those mediums, bad error that.

    Mercedes didnít use the new engine in this race either.

    Just caught up with the highlights, front lefts seemed to become a problem

    Question F 1 last of season race on TV

    F 1 on TV - Sunday 12th December

    Does anyone know , any pubs etc , particularly in the Abbeyhill, Easter Rd , South Leith , or the city centre,
    that are likely to have the F1 on at all? The alternative attraction ? is the Hearts v Rangers game .

    I am visiting Edinburgh, for family birthdays in December and my daughter is F1 daft , as much as I am Hibee
    daft . Any help or ideas would be much appreciated , as where to go on the 12th , to see this live on TV .

    Cheers

    Sir Frank Williams dead, aged 79.

    I grew up with F1 and BTCC in the '90s and he's a true great of the sport, those Williams Renault cars were a thing of beauty.

    This is the first weekend where the the title can be decided which is remarkable considering how one sided itís been in previous years. Will it make a difference to how Hamilton approaches the race? A dnf would almost certainly mean game over for him but heís got years of experience behind him to be able to deal with the pressure. Will Max go all out to win the race and leave himself the luxury of not having to do anything spectacular in the final race? The fact that itís a new track only adds to the intrigue.

    Fair play to him, heís obviously untouchable and can get away with doing that, but I donít agree with F1 going there.

    Max blinks first, he was on course for pole position but couldnít keep it within the lines. Game on for tomorrow.

    Was pushing the track to its limits all the way round, silly when he has the points advantage

    Absolutely daft of him. Heís lightning fast but mentally not on the same level as Lewis etc.

    Or he could have aced the lap and put himself quite literally in pole position for the title!

    Was another gripping qualifying..sometimes they are reasonably dull but on a number of occasions this year they have been brilliant.

    What a track that is! Jeopardy everywhere and I think we can bank on a safety car or ten tomorrow.

    Hamilton is raging that the race has been stopped. Red Bull have lucked out by not stopping.

    Max needs to have a word with himselfÖthere is fighting hard and there is down right cheating.

    Finally he got a penalty for his nonsense and Lewis showing calm and class once again.

    Why did he drive into the back of Verstappen?

    Well I sure Lewis didnít deliberately drive into the back of him
    And nearly wipe his front wing out.

    He had no comms from his engineer to tell him Max would slow. There had been a zillion VSC and whatever else. The penalty for overtaking under yellows etc is harsh so there could be a hundred reasonsÖalso Max moved as well so was trying to be cute how and where he was letting him past.

    I think he was just confused as to what was going on really Öno surprise really as that was a mental race!

    It appears thatís what happened, Max was told to let Lewis past but Lewis hadnít been told. I have to say Iím loving all this, the dirtier the better for me, itís like the good old days of Senna and Prost or Hill and Schumacher.

    Max brings it down to 3rd gear and then accelerates away, Lewis doing the same but it looks like both wanting the gain of DRS about 200 yards further on, I would say Max was a bit naughty during this race and it backfired on him, and he could get a penalty for the next race.

    For us the fans it was super exciting stuff and bring on next week.

    I don't think it's a good look for F1 on top of racing in Saudi in the first place, but it gives us a great title decider.
