    What a ****in race that was. I put a bet on Albon after the second safety car, I canít believe Hamilton hit him again. What a race though.

    Quite exciting. Nobody could have guessed how that turned out, even on the last lap!

    Great last lap from Norris to get on the podium. He had a lot of bad luck last year so Iím delighted for him.

    Id kind of fell out of love with F1 in the last decade whe still keeping an eye on results.

    During lockdown however I've been watching a lot of old races and newer ones and caught the bug again.

    Nice to see Lando and Mclaren on the podium.

    Thatís a great comparison. There was so many twists and turns you could never be confident who was going to win. Hopefully it will be the same next week. I believe thereís rain forecast.

    Another brilliant race. The winner was more predictable this time (which does wonders for my Fantasy F1 team) but behind Lewis there was plenty action again. The scrap between Perez, Norris, Stroll and Danny Ric was fabulous, Bottas vs Verstappen was great too.

    Lewis truly is one of the greatest of all time, if not the best. Never thought Schumacher's records would be surpassed but for a man to be on the top of the sport for as long as he's been and still have a few seasons left in him, truly remarkable.

    Surprised Vettel is struggling to find a drive.

    I know Racing Point have been mentioned but be surprised to see them bin either driver.

    I canít see it either, Strollís dad owns the team and they love Perez. Heíll end up at alpha romeo, red bull is an outside bet.

    i think he strugged when put under pressure by Hamilton/Mercedes, but chalked it up to not having an equal/better car. Then a couple of years ago Ferrari had a car that was better, but the team and Vettel made mistakes weekly, whilst Hamilton and Mercedes nailed it time after time.

    I think that season kinda broke him, no excuses to use, just wasn't the best driver or team even though they had the best car, and its damaged his self confidence. He didn't seem to fight very hard as Ferrari decided to replace him, and last season seemed to be punctuated by moments of petulance and sulking as Leclerc kept improving and challenged his no.1 status.

    I've never been a fan, but its sad seeing such a successful driver seemingly slowly sliding out of the sport quietly without some of the credit you'd think he is due.

    Procession for mercedes today i feel.
    Hamilton has it wrapped up if he stays out of trouble (and doesnt have too many moments like in yesterdays qualifying)
    Verstappen (3rd) will take no prisoners
    Hulkenburg (13th) wont start (car issue) after his late stand-in for Perez

    Vettel in 10th will make progress but he's not likely to get a podium ahead of Verstappen or Leclerc (4th)

    Front left tyre failure for Bottas and he's dropped out the top 10.

    A few tyre failures now in the last lap.
    Hamiltons tyre has gone too and he's not finished the final lap.

    They should have had him in for a free pit stop.

    A moderately interesting race that burst into life on the last couple of laps!

    ... and we're all set to go next week on less durable tyres!

    Red bull must be kicking themselves for bringing in Verstappen at the end, theyíd have won easily if heíd stayed out.

    Both the drivers and constructors' titles sewn up.

    Wouldn't shock me if Hamilton ended up a ten time champ by the time his career is over. Fair enough the Mercedes is the best car but he's made it that way with the team and they wouldn't be able to find him a team mate who could keep up. Even in his debut year he was easily the match of Alonso by mid season.

    Cracking victory for Verstappen yesterday, itís looking like Mercedes are struggling with tyres in warmer weather, hopefully that will make the races a bit more competitive. Good drive from Leclerc, but Vettel would be as well walking away from Ferrari now.

    Iíve never been much of a Vettel fan but seeing him having almost given up just doesnít sit right with me. Heís a great driver, multiple world champion and his heart just isnít in it any more. I wonder how much of that is down to him being treated a pretty badly at Ferrari these past few months? Thereís talk of him going to Racing Point next season but I wouldnít be surprised if he just jacked it all in looking at his body language and comments recently.

    I think heís just struggling with not being the best driver in the team, he knows heís being released by Ferrari and itís had an impact on his form. The car isnít great, but heís not getting the best out of it, thereís no way Ferrari would sabotage their position in the constructors championship.
    ps this weeks Grand Prix in Barcelona is traditionally the worst of the year, letís hope the tyres fall to pieces and itís really hot.

    Itís a bit of a shame that the last of the F1 family owned teams is gone, but Williams badly needed investment. Hopefully it will see them back where they belong.

    From watching Drive to Survive on Netflix I didnít really expect anything else. She seemed clueless - a bit like a female David Brent.
