I was one of the Bottas doubters. I'm happy he's busy proving me wrong.

Fantastic lap from both Ferrari drivers. Good come back by Lewis, although I feel he was playing games.

Max was giving space to the car in front and everyone just overtook him after the hairpin.

Lewis needs to figure out how to get comfortable in the car, so he can put valtteri back in his box.

And not for missing out final round, but for his comments on radio afterwords.

He especially is driver who doesn't care about others, now others didn't care about him.

Not just pole. 1-2. Apparently, Toto is a GOD. He magically sends speed.
