Yes Lewis, it's very close!

Guys are harsh on Gasly. Give the guy some time. If the gap with Verstappen is still that big come Canada, it's time to ask questions, but for now, let him find his groove.


And thank you Ferrari for the team orders in the third race. It was the most entertaining thing we saw today.

Boring race crowned by Ferrari "strategy" farce. What a joke (Ferrari).
they seem not to learn from their past mistakes.

Pretty pathetic. Also screwing LEC morale this early... NOT GOOD.
Finishing races is important, but racing is more important.

I thought Ferrari will be fighting the Merc and it ended up fighting Redbull...someone should question this stupid race strategy...am I the only one to see these big holes of shocking strategies...

I'm a Lewis fan and even I found it dull.

Ferrari really threw Leclerc under a bus didn't they

Three races with Merc taking 1 & 2. What is this? 2016?

Imho he had his time. He is just too slow. 0.8-0.9 on a fast lap and at pitstop he was 40 seconds behind Verstappen. I would have smiled if he would not have been able to beat Vettels fastest lap time.

Red Bull is lost..have to forget this season
Give them either a Merc or Ferrari engine and they will show who is lost.... its sad that neither Honda or Renault can produce a equal powerful engine like Merc or Ferrari...F1 is now a monopoly and I dont see the fans interest loving up at this 1000th GP.

Lewis Hamilton jumped into the lead at the start of the Chinese Grand Prix to never give it away again. Pole sitter Valtteri Bottas held on to second and finished there, securing yet another Mercedes 1-2 as Ferrari's Vettel had to settle for third.

No it is actually 1992, when William's got 3 one twos in the first 3 races
If Mercedes get 1-2 in the next race then it will be a new record

Mercedes domination since 2014 but somehow I'm still following every single f1 event. Hardcore

And it’s still insane how far ahead they are of Formula 1.5. Red Bull Formula 1.25?
