    It's not a coincidence that half of them live in Monaco.

    Not a great start for McLaren... lots of breakdowns on track and they dropped the car while practising pitstops yesterday. :(

    Hell of a lap from Lewis in Q3. It looked like Ferrari might have been holding back their pace a bit in the practise sessions and that it might actually be quite tight but he just blew them away.

    This is actually what 50 years of feminism has been about; making sure those popular pretty bitches don't have jobs when they grow up. Its had nothing to do with men or "the patriarchy", its all about bringing those popular girls down a peg*

    Wouldn’t fancy being in the Mercedes or Haas garages right now. Bet Hamilton is sharing a few choice words.

    I don't know Hamilton could've done tbh, apart from "be psychic" and see that the VSC was coming and try to increase the gap. It was just an unfortunate (depending on your allegiance) set of circumstances with Haas imploding when they did and Vettel still needing to pit when it happened. The Haas thing was bad though - unless they lost pneumatic pressure to the guns on that side of the car there's really no decent explanation.

    You’d have to analyse Hamilton’s laps under the VSC. It’s supposed to be a 35% speed reduction, but he only had to coast a coupe of corners and that could have made the difference. The key question is why the team didn’t tell him Vettel had gone in.

    So Hamilton said this about Verstappen after the race:


    There's this incredibly annoying, incredibly biased Dutch "journalist" called Louis Dekker, who tried to make a whole big thing out of it in the post race press conference:

    I'm not a fan of Vettel, he just irritates me, but kudos for this.

    And Verstappen is epically fast, but he's also an annoying twerp.

    Great drive from Ricciardo after nearly not being able to qualify. Mercedes should've pitted Hamilton (and maybe Bottas, I'm not sure he hadn't passed the pit entrance when the safety car signs lit up). Verstappen is a bellend.

    Cool GP today. Verstapen being a dick and moving too much again i think. But muchly entertaining

    I'm not entirely sure you can blame him for that one.

    It sounds like Redbull are calling it a 50/50 incident but Verstappen pulled off several dickish moves against Ricciardo earlier in the race. He's exciting to watch but he just needs to dial it back a bit because all he's doing is throwing points away.

    It was a great finish to a good race, though. The safety car set it up perfectly, allowing everyone from Ferrari and Mercedes to get on the ultrasoft tyres. Bottas was desperately unlucky but Vettel just made a hash of whatever he was trying to do.

    I think he moved once which he is allowed to do. Then as normal he made a second move which left ric with no where to go.

    I won't remove my agrees / disagrees for clarity, but I am rewatching and reviewing my view on the RIC VER incident.... hmm....

    I see Grosjean is back to being a bit of a bellend.

    A bit of a bellend? A turd of the highest order.

    Dont these guys keep telling us how great they are? well thats a rookie driving mistake, not a rookie F1 mistake, plain old simple driving error that these guys get paid millions NOT to make.

    He needs results or he wont be playing next year.

    Perhaps, but he is coming to the end of his 3yr Haas contract.. his negotiating position isn't looking good shall we say?

    And you wonder why F1 is so boring, listen to yourselves complaining about racing.

    What Grosjean did (in this instance) wasn't anything to do with racing, it was pure stupidity.

    Worse than usual. Hamilton and Alonso were right - utterly boring due to everyone being shit scared to push their tyres. If it wasn't such a prestigious event I expect they'd have dropped it from the calendar years ago.
