Finishing races is important, but racing is more important.

People still hoping for a DNF for Hamilton who has already had 1 to counteract the facts that Vettel has at times not been very good. Depressing

Maybe it would be better to look at Vettel’s driving and asking questions of that instead of looking for get out of jail free card. A card that Vettel has already had actually.

I think he meant retire as a driver not a DNF.

That makes no sense with regard to the reply of ‘WDC’.

It does if you consider it this way - "I won 5 today, I think I'm happy to hang 'em up."

But of course I neither want that nor does Lewis, as he's mentioned quite a few times.

Sensational lap and S1 by Romain Grosjean!
Not for nothing, Rosberg's Championship is the only thing that lends credibility to Hamilton's recent success. Otherwise, he'd just be the guy who's had the best car. — bhall II

How come Gasly's time was nulled and Ricciardo's and Verstappen's times weren't?

Hamilton has already started talking about Schumacher’s 7 WDCs. Not a chance.

However asking for a DNF to cover another drivers faults isn’t a new thing. Unfortunately.

Not the same corner, despite the “replay” making it seem they were.

Leclerc is IMO the real deal. The way he keeps putting that Sauber best of the rest is just amazing. So stoked to see him at Ferrari next year. Running against Vettel will really put things into perspective.
