I could see Hamilton helping Bottas to the win to keep his championship finishing place - a certain bit of "thank you" for the season. I don't see Vettel doing the same to help Kimi. I don't think either Finn would want it that way, however.
Reason?
You've been around the block long enough to know the answer, your response comes off a bit passive aggressive. Save your energy for next year we all deserve a dignified winter break. :P
See you in Melbourne. :)

Yeah i dont mind if Bottas wins. It looks bad when he is thw only one out of the top six without a win.
I personally count Sochi as a win for him. It's just that the positions were swapped and the greater points given to Lewis, but for all intents and purposes that's a Bottas win.
Who knows if Lewis would have overtaken him, or he had a puncture like in Baku... Yes he was leading at the time, but it is not like they swapped places at the finish line.. So it's still a bit hollow for me. Bottas still has that duck to break. I just have a feeling he will be "Left alone to win" this time out.
Not driving a Mercedes? Work harder!

Because he's given up (on this year at least) and because, ultimately, I think he's selfish and doesn't care a damn about his team mate.
:lol: :lol: just like in brazil.

Ten years of winter hibernation, they're really good at it by now. Some fans just attend fair weather events. No rain predicted for this weekend, you'd think they'd all be here. :mrgreen:

Fair weather Post events, with all the bravado!

Will they ever change the Sector 3 of this circuit? It takes away the fun from the rest of it.

Hey, in fairness to LM10, he/she fights Ferrari's corner all season long. =D>

The two you mention only turn up when testing is promising or when Ferrari are doing well. Lots of "hey, Ferrari are going to smash Mercedes/RedBull this year" until results go away from the Scuderia. Then they disappear, never to be heard from until the next pre-season tests. #-o

LM10 is not like that at all! =D>
Turbo says "Dumpster sounds so much more classy. It's the diamond of the cesspools." oh, and "The Dutch fans are drunk. Maybe"

Just saw the press conference schedule.

Being a Dan fan, I was kinda hoping he'd be there to hear his thoughts on leaving RBR.
Oh well, not to worry, looks like a pretty good line up.

Can't believe it is all over. Too bad that post season test is reserved just for tyres so teams cannot experiment with 2019 spec wings
