Negative rubber left on Ocon's tyre at the end of the race....

Seeing that tyre, I think Mercedes made the right decision to bring in Lewis for that tyre change. It may of cost him 3rd place but when your fighting for championship and given what happen with Norris at the Russian gp with the wrong tyre choice, its better to be safe than taking an unnecessary risk.

I definitely agree. The only mistake Mercedes made was not pitting Hamilton earlier. Botha’s was putting in fastest laps at the end of the race and if Hamilton had been pitted at the same time he would of been doing the same.

Mercedes are arguing that they wanted to put Lewis onto a slick, and that’s why they waited, but the slick crossover point never happened.

Woo hoo!
This time I reckon we will actually have a race.

And I don’t care that we are not first up. 2 races for the teams to settle into the new cars.
Bring it on!

Not being the first race on the calendar is going to put more emphasis on the fact that Albert Park is not a great circuit for overtaking.
Usually the first race hype masks the lack of on-track action
