Oh look another 1-2 Mercedes finish.

Also is anyone in here upset about the return of the Dutch Grand Prix at Zandvoort, I know nothing about the track but a lot of people seem upset over it.

It's a very fun track but not ideal for overtakes.

It could be worse. They could be racing at Barber Motorsports Park.

Yup, Leclerc ****ed up big time, Vettel just ****ed up, TWICE.

I just hope Ricciardos car doesn't **** the bed on him.

It was legit shocking to see LeClerc not get out of Q1, but it's gonna be fun watching him recklessly burn through the field tomorrow.

And I am still holding out hope that the stars will align to put Kubica on the podium sometime this season. At this point, it's probably the ONLY thing I'd be out of my seat excited to watch.

I guess I should have said Leclerc got ****ed big time, not really his fault that he didn't make it out of Q1 when his car was in the garage and he wasn't even in it.

What a snooze fest!!! I've seen more action in a funeral procession. After Leclerc crashed out they might as well of finished the race behind a safety car.

Max trying to pass Hamilton-

We all knew he'd put on a show, but come on. At least stretch it out a little longer.

Yeap, a disappointing end. I hope the ruling body don't mess up the race.

Hope it doesn't become comon practice to mess up the rest of the season. I'm kind of a Lewis fanboy, but in todays race Vettle had no control of the car when the incident happened so I can't say he was culpable of the incident. If it was me, I would've waited the 5 seconds before crossing the finish line.

I am not really a big fan of any driver or team (I do like Ricciardo, just wish he had a better car) as this is the first year I have truly made an effort to watch/follow every race along with the practice rounds and qualifying, but I must say I was pumped when Vettel took the pole as seeing Mercedes dominate was getting boring, sucked the way it ended, he was coming off the grass at high speed, everyone is lucky he was under as much control as he was.

I also like how everyone handled it in the end, even Vettel messing with the places in front of the cars, at least made the post race worth watching.

He didn't get a penalty. That was a good thing. It was a hard racing.

Lewis lost the 2008 Belgian GP under similar circumstances with Ferrari, my first thought was that this was done to "even up" that call...
