Nice to see Lewis keeping his promise.
Nice fight up on front. I would love to see Red Bulls in as well.
And Fernando, well done to my boy!

First time this season Kimi did good for the team. Sad for him he wasn't allowed to win, but he surely helped Ferrari today.

Now we know which team has the real no.1 / no.2 driver set up. That'll be the red one then...

As far as Bottas and the team are concerned, he's still in the title fight. Had Hamilton not upheld his portion of the bargain, it would've only ensured that he would get no aid from his team mate whatsoever in the future.

Sorry, good on Hamilton, but Bottas didnt deserve this. Neither did Vettel.

As for Mercedes: I think its more a farce having to slow down and concede a gap of over 5 seconds, than for a team to ask the slower driver to let the faster one through mid race to better their race prospects.
Not for nothing, Rosberg's Championship is the only thing that lends credibility to Hamilton's recent success. Otherwise, he'd just be the guy who's had the best car. — bhall II

If there is a hypocrite in here it is Ferrari! Raikkonen was much faster yet they risked everything for their boy Vettel! It would have been brilliant if Hamilton had passed both of them just to see what they would have said to Kimi!

I agree. They forced him to pit early to keep him behind. He was so much faster that the overcut was a certain succes. Ferrari of course had other plans.
Not driving a Mercedes? Work harder!

The difference between Ferrari and Mercedes, the difference between Vettel and Hamilton could not be made any more clear than it was today.

Vettel is a number one driver, Hamilton simply wants to be allowed to compete. Love today's results and the actions by Hamilton at the end submitting his position to his teammate.

Another Austria 2002 moment for Ferrari. :lol: And this now should ensure that, no Ferrari fan should ever take moral high ground on their team's sanctity and question Mercedes!

Haha. The haters dont know that Hamilton is a fair racer?
Well i think if lewis loses the WDC by 3 points it's still fair.
True. I think he'll say that he lost it simply because he hasn't done well enough. It's that simple!

Hahaha Fernando! He really has become a living meme! :lol:

So you wanted 1. Rai 2. Ham 3. Vett? How is that result better for Ferrari? They had an easy decision to make. Keep the order as is.

Always find the gap then use it.

Win? He would have needed to overtake...judging, that Ham was not even in DRS most of the time at the same pace I do not see a way to.

Hamilton has definitely banked some "teammate help points" for later in the season, that's for sure. If Bottas is out of the title race later in the season he may well be asked to give up a win to help Hamilton: he'll feel honour-bound to do so now. No Multi-21 bad feelings today.
