Oh, that's right. I completely forgot about Mercedes. They're leading 1-2, indeed.

Absolutely useless from Ferrari- who on earth makes their strategy calls?

Pretty underwhelming race so far. So many expectations but Jesus Christ, this is lame .

And well, Ferrari looking like the fastest car, hey Toto?

What makes you think so about Vettel? If anything, it seems that Leclerc doesn't like playing the team game (something very important for a team like Ferrari) . Also, Vettel was constantly in his DRS zone, Charles wasn't. It is a whole different story that they messed his strategy though...

Also, a thing to mention - I believe Kvyat didn't deserve such a penalty. Norris came up from almost outside and there's no way neither Sainz and Kvyat would have predicted such a situation. It was a racing incident in my opinion.

Norris actions didn't make any impact on the fact that Kvyat lost corner.

At the time Leclerc was 2.2 behind Bottas the whole time, Vettel had 5+ seconds of clean air infront of him.

While Leclerc was 3rd, Ferrari sat 2 - 2.5 behind the Mercs, They switch the Ferraris and they fall 7 seconds back #-o #-o

Bored out of my mind so far. Hoping something will happen to spice things up. SC would be great right about now.

Not really, the Russian lost the corner so he has collided with the two McLarens.

Merc have absolutely toyed with the field this weekend- not looking good for close battle at high DF tracks!
