This is bloody close. Exactly what we wanted to see between the two top drivers on the grid right now.

Well done Max, composed drive there, let Lewlew take the first corner but did what needed to be done to win the race.

Also sucked in MERC, your shitty engine tactics with BOT didn’t pay off, again. You reap what you sow.

Max truely deserves the WDC this year, only thing keeping HAM close has been dodgy MERC tactics and bad luck.

The crowd noises was phenomenal. I'm not even sure if that was a good race or not but I enjoyed it from the crowd alone.

Opening lap battle between McLaren and Ferrari was amazing.
The top 2 team strategy battle was great.

Besides that, not alot to hang your hat on.

Bottas really seems to struggle making his way way through the middle order when he's stuck there. The Merc clearly isn't built for it.

I think the commentators have said a few times that the Merc is really fast in clean air, but copes worse than most of the others when it's in dirty air behind another car.

Mercedes have built their cars under the assumption they'll be leading, and between the quality of the car and Hamilton's ability, they've been justified. This season has thrown a few curve balls at them. I expect Max to win in Mexico, and emerge with at least a 20 point lead with four rounds to go.
