As we know, the result isn't the result until someone in an office somewhere rubber stamps it. You don't give out the world championship until you *know* that it's going to the right place.

Thank God for that, too. Reminds me of my graduation where I was presented by an important person a trophy for Commerce instead of my actual degree (Computer Science). Hilarious and sad at the same time lol.

Hey what? How have Red Bull turned the engine down? Surely Max would have to do it
it was verstappen who turned it down. it was a question from engineer
Im sure he said to max, just to let you know we have turned it down. Max kept saying before if you want to turn it down, turn it down
I reckon Max gets told to switch to a certain setting, and he was then told "we turned it down"

Ferrari showed this race what a great car they've built this season. Sad that the championship ended early.

True, the car is a beast, that's for sure.

Differentiators were Hamilton and the Mercedes team overall. The Mercedes car itself was beatable this season. What Ferrari needs to do for next season is to get better strategically and Vettel needs to be a cooler driver. I'm curious about what's going to happen with Leclerc as his new team mate and how the Ferrari team is going to react to this new driver duo.

Ferrari have a phenomenal car this season and on Seb side 100% reliable in both qualifying and the race, incredible job from the team cant ask for much more. Just makes Lewis' 5th title even more special, best season of his career so far.

Actually all bets are off with the fact that everyone’s front wing, side pods and rear wing ideas are about to get binned.

However you’re not being fair to Ferrari here. Vettel’s car has been consistently the fastest or there abouts as well as pretty much bullet proof. There isn’t much more they could have given him.
