Bottas blowing up his engine while defending hard against Vettel in Spain (who he wasnt even racing) while he was on course for 3rd place was seen as "great team effort". He pretty much fought for Hamilton to get his win, while he risked (and in the end lost) his old engine he was running in that race.
Bottas not holding Vettel there and finishing 3rd, while Hamilton retained 2nd place, would mean now Bottas would be ahead of Hamilton in WDC. But please, continue with inane arguing over Ferrari not ordering Vettel to move for a driver who is 100pts behind in WDC standings (and losing 1-2 in process). Seriously irrational thinking.
Ferrari and Mercedes can do what they want but don't lie about team orders like Vettel did in Monaco and don't treat audience like fools. Don't pretend why you keep Raikkonen either or that this season is better without Rosberg. Points make no difference they are identical in that regard.
Meanwhile in alternative realities: "Hamilton's act of self-harm will delight Ferrari" http://www.autosport.com/premium/featur ... ht-ferrari
Self harm meaning qualifying behind Bottas and poor start that put him in sixth? BTW say swap one more time, I dare you
. The only swap for Hamilton was manufactured by Verstappen: from sixth to fourth.
- Palmer's avoiding Ricciardo was the highlight of this race and of his F1 career.
- It's always a good sign when the main topic after the race is team orders x 2 by two top teams.
