    Don't usually say this but it's not a bad drive by Grosjean today

    Crofty waffling on about Bottas undercutting Vettel... he was 6 seconds behind, that would be quite the undercut if he pulled that off

    The Merc would have had to bust out its new Teleportation Mode to pull it off

    Was shocked he didn’t get out in front of HAM, I thought he had that covered

    So continuing on in the other thread about the Hamilton/Bottas comparison. It's not without no reason that Bottas has been written off, and today's race kind of highlights it. If they're in 20 races, and the head to head score is 10 a piece, Hamilton would get 7-8 wins in his 10, while Bottas would get 2-3. It's that shit Bottas has to overcome to smack down all of us keyboard warriors who dismiss him.

    Apparently Harlow waving the flag early meant RIC lost his fastest lap. From memory it was 1:13 something, which is near track record? Anyone record what his time was? I did a quick search of the innernet to no avail.

    How the **** does the chequered flag get waved early?

    I did lol that when Vettel came around to receive the flag when the full number of laps had been completed that the flag had been taken off the celebrity

    Bit of a nothing race really. 1 stop and drivers just managing their tyres through to the flag. Even the flag waver wanted the race over and done with early.
    Credit to Max not crashing into Bottas on Lap 1, had Crashstappen written all over it.

    I fell asleep on the couch not long after DR pit stop. Woke up around lap 55 and pretty much nothing had changed. Went to bed.

    2am Race start in Perth meant I was always going to record it. Watched it on fast forward and ultimately didn't miss much

    One of the worst tracks for redbull but they landed two in the top 4

    They'll dominate several European races

    Paul Ricard is just under a click longer.
    Spewing they're gonna use the back straight chicane though.

    Should be good for Ferrari, and Mercedes if the new engine is approved by then.

    I get that Liberty want to expand the popularity of F1. But the mix up with the flag shows there are some parts of F1 that they can't muck around with. It's not even amateurish to make a pathetic mistake like that.
