This will be George’s first win. a Mercedes track par excellence.

That is why I was so gutted to see Max taken out yesterday, I was really curious to see what ultimate pace he and George could muster.

Nobody here knows if Lewis will be back but it looks more likely after Toto's comments yesterday. Hoping Max survives the first lap this time, his relentless pressure on the Mercs was missing last weekend.

Is this that renowned sarcasm again or you want a Mercedes borefest?

I don't see Hamilton racing in this one. Even if he's feeling ok health wise and even if he produces a negative test, there are a lot of logistic obstacles to getting him to the track and in the car- least of all local laws.

This year, with their new rear suspension, they have struggled in slow speed corners (not the best). Last couple of years, they dominated slow corners. So not sure if this is really a Mercedes track. I am talking of S3 in particular. PU power could still play a big role.

Yes, I have since I wrote that seen that Verstappen thinks the track might be not too bad for them. Hope up again!

What’s the official line on when we will hear about Hamilton’s participation? I assume there’s a deadline by which they will need to decide whether he’s able to race?

I believe officially- unless they bend the rules for him, which let's face it could happen- he's not even allowed to enter the country in time for the race due to the timing of him getting ill.

I could be wrong though.

If that were no problem, I think someone mentioned that the latest he can get into the car is for qualifying, although he'd be at a pretty big disadvantage with zero setup and running, so is it even worth his while?

Personally, I can’t see why it’s worth his while even thinking about turning up. Championship(S) all done and dusted, nothing to prove in this race, start his Xmas holiday early.
But i suspect this attitude is one of the many reasons I’m not a multi world champ and he is.
