Lightning start from HAM! The lights went out unusually quick, I think it surprised BOT a little.
I think he just had a better start in general, as he had a super start for the formation lap as well.

Interesting that Vettel with DRS on that HUGE straight , only takes 0.2 out of Leclerc in front of him. I thought a 20kph advantage would be massive.

I'm really sorry, but if Sebastian Vettel deserves four world titles then I'm an astronaut. I know it's still really early to talk, but for the second time (2014 being the first) he's showing he can't even best a rookie on the same car.

Except that in 2016 the Ferrari wasn't good at all. Over the last two seasons they apparently had a competitive car but managed to lose on their own.

I wonder why both Vet and Lec have been locking up so much. Did they adjust the FW before the race to combat the understeer from quali?
