Hang on there. Everything resets at the end of the season. If it's mental then it can be sorted out

To get Bottas?
Exactly this. Commentators not figured that out yet. Vettel needs to win , not wait for 3rd.
That's fine, but do it in a better place and in a different way, not stupidly like this.
Totally although he had such a run at max it was an opportunity

Just like Ferrari dominance at the turn of the century Mercedes is emulating the exact recipe. Kudos to them but the real loser is the fans, you can easily predict qualifying and the race.

Sooner or later FoM needs to make extreme changes
If someone said to me that you can have three wishes, my first would have been to get into racing, my second to be in Formula 1, my third to drive for Ferrari.

As a Ferrari fan I can't believe how badly the 2nd half of the season has gone. They never fail to let me down....

Why go for an aggressive overtake when you know that Verstappen has a penalty?

I think everyone understands that. However everyone also knows that you don’t just throw it up the inside with Verstappen.

Nope, he would have been leading and winning this championship if off season reset worked for him... If it's not all perfect and he doesn't feel completely in control over his opponents, he has no mental strenght to pull out of it. He's been showing it for the last 2 yeary in Ferrari and also in RB before his switch
Team Fernando!

Vettel needs to go see Grosjeans sports psychologist, he’s having a great race, Gasly too.

The best thing that Vettel can do is forget about this championship (he still thinks he has a chance - his words) and work on next season.

Although Verstappen's penalty was pretty clear, I do find it strange that for the same infringement at Spa during qualifying by Alonso, got very unpunished.

So many stupid comments and yet ignoring the obvious. Max has no business being an F1 driver.
Shame forum psychologists haven't figured out that.

Wow how is Verstappen still ahead of Kimi? He lost so much time in traffic that Verstappen could stay in front even with the penalty.

Please share your view on this. Max is there to stay bud.
