    Max reporting a vibration. Whats the bet he's flat spotted a front tyre?
    Max: It wasnt me!

    that pitstop by RBR on Dan is a joke. Surely Dans supersofts can hold out as long as (if not longer) than Kimis ultrasofts. Dan could have stayed out for another 10 laps then finished on ultras, instead of softs.

    RBR have dropped the ball big time. Fair enough cover Vettel off with Max, but the Dan pitstop is a nothing strategy.

    Is it too much to ask for a Max mistake into a wall? On this track pretty unlikely I guess.. maybe a spin at least?

    hes raced the shit out of them since lap 2, constantly going off the racing line. So yeah they would be worse for wear.

    Sounds like it was a good move. Knew Kimi would go supers, chance of catching them, so got Dan out again to open the gap now.

    Despise tracks with massive run offs AND no punishment for going off. Either barriers or rumble bumps make them tolerable, but tracks like this and Russia are shit. Just not enough pressure on drivers to stay within the track limits, so less handling mistakes.

    dont see how its a good move. Kimi has been on the quicker tyre all race, and is now closing the gap to Ricciardo who is on a harder compound. RBR have cost Dan a podium here i reckon. Dan is dropping off the pace of Max cos he knows hes been screwed.

    Bottas was well clear of the apex. There was plenty of room. If Bottas indeed cut it tight at the apex I can see the argument as to whether it was merely a 'racing incident'.

    Nothing really wrong with the move now that the rain hasn't come, that was my main anger. Something is wrong with him now, not anything to do with strategy

    Crazy how sometimes they can lose half the guide vanes on the front wing and race like nothing’s happened, but Hornier saying Dan lost a small part and significantly impacting Dan.

    Watching the 10 highlights. Vettel ballsed up again. He can complain all he like, but it was his fault, and it could cost him the championship. Verstappen obviously doesn't need a to think twice about going off the circuit.

    Yeh its a worry when a race where overtaking happened is still boring for large patches.

    I also see that we have 3 weeks of F1 in a row with Austria this weekend and Silverstone the week after.
