was it out there in the runoff? :lol: here take some bait.
And your admin ? Jesus christ.
It was a tongue in cheek comment dude chill out. If he would have past max you would be jumping up and down about how Hamilton show Max who the BOSS is. But with much newer tires and much faster car.......
Lewis did successfully get past Max, but was dragged out by the marbles off line.
Going side by side through the S's with Max shows that it is possible to overtake Max without crashing. On the other hand, Max has just proven that he has pretty decent race craft.

At the same time I’m a little sad to see Kimi go. Kimi definitely is a Championship driver whether he still has the speed or not.

Kimi punked Hamilton with that pitstop. Well it was a lottery at that stage.
Lewis didn't fall for it though, he was told to do the opposite and did.
Yeah I'm pulling this comment. I will say anything to make Kimi's win sweeter.

Another shenanigan from Vettel which is becoming a norm now, almost at every race. The third time he bumped somebody and the third time he was the one who spun. I guess he should start to take some lessons out of it.
If i would get the money to start my own F1 team, i would revive Arrows

Jesus the sky commentators are morons, they said Lewis has to outscore Vettel by 5 Points for the remainder of the season.

No Dumb Dumbs he just has to score
5 points.
I said the same. Hamilton can cruise to the WDC.

Nice to see Kimi winning. Hey, can someone tell us how many times Bottas let Hamilton through this year. Twice this race.
also please tell me how many time Bottas has been piz poor slow than even the 3rd fastest car and that too on the best car on the field? 15 races till now.
Of course he is slow when he is just there to let Hamilton through and try to screw Vettel or Kimi. The guy is probably mentally crushed considering how many times he had to let other driver through and have his strategy decided based on trying to hold ferraris.

Yeah, shows you race by not trying to just bully the other driver. Lewis and Max were fair with each other, no harm, no foul. Some drivers should take note...

Did Vettel just blame Ricciardo for it?

yeah when you are slow like that on the best car of the grid and get beaten by a guy starting 18th on the 3rd best car, then you deserve to be treated like a lap dog

I have a feeling Lewis is going to be all over the team in the post-race. they waited way too long to bring him in for his second stop.
yup like 4 laps were he lost 1.5 sec avg per lap
That would have been enough
The only thing is his tyres went crap after 20 laps, at that point there were a good 25 laps to go. So pitting then run the risk of having bad tyres again later on.

It was breathtaking stuff between the two! How both swap the upper hand through turns. One has the upper hand, then the other! It’s just a prelude to what to expect for the future!

It's more Ferrari punked Mercedes than Kimi doing it to Hamilton. Mercedes has become predictable with the 'do the opposite' tactic.

Vettel and Ferrari did so many mistakes this year, that all Mercedes has to do is chill and collect those last 5 points remaining and take the title, and make sure they get enough points for the constructors.
