I wonder how Albon will fare in the premium car. This is his rookie year...

Nice to see another non MB win, although Hamilton and team are ridiculous and almost caught LeClerc.

Also great race by Albon.

I stepped out of the room for half a second and Norris retired, whole weekend sucked for McLaren.

I was surprised Vettel took one for the team... it paid off really well.

Yeah I was surprised at how genuinely happy he seemed for LeClerc after the race, then again he was faster than Vettel through all 3 rounds of practice and qualifying so I think Seb saw the writing on the wall.

Interested to see how things go down this weekend with Ferrari.

I thought Lewis was going to catch Leclerc in the final laps and stopped watching with 6 to go, didn't want to see that

Yeah I thought he was going to catch him as well, this race showed how great of a driver Hamilton is, he was in a slower car (for the track) with pretty much the same age tires (1 lap difference) so catching LeClerc was fully up to his ability to manage his tires via perfect driving.

Another great race, seems Ferrari pulled their heads out of their asses for this one with LeClerc, Seb needs to get his **** together. Was also great seeing Renault do so well.

Qualifying was hilarious.

I'm just gonna say it, Ferrari needs to get rid of Vettel. He is past his prime.

Yeah he just seems to not give a ****, he was even asked after the race if he still liked driving, or something like that, big pause before he finally said yes.

But then again I don’t think I’d quick a job that pays me $44 million.

Neither would I but Ferrari has to look for themselves and score points. They should get Verstappen I'm sure he would agree. They did the same sh!t with Kimi, kept him way past his prime.

If somehow or another Verstappen goes to Ferrari, I wonder if they'll make him the new Golden Child™. LeClerc seems like he has the makings of a champion and I'd hate to see him stay as Ferrari's #2 driver.

Yeah I see Verstappen going to Mercedes before Ferrari as they already have their new #1 in LeClerc.

Hamilton shoots for his seventh championship, retires, and Verstappen moves into Mercedes #1 seat.

Oh, Bottas won't be happy.
