Bottas never raced anyone. He started first and kept it. I mean fair play, was never any doubt he can drive fast but he wasn’t wheel to wheel even one time in that race.So that was a lot more uneventful than expected...
The man who can't race won the race That's what he can do when let off the leash. Didn't put a foot wrong.
Surprised Max and RB didn't put up more of a fight. Clearly happy to coast in for second.
DOTD for me: Lewis and Sainz. Great recovery drives for both.
Don't think anything else happened
As for the last stop for Lewis - damned if they did, damned if they didn't. Just too much of a gamble.
If anything, if they had pitted when the team first wanted to then Lewis would have had more time once the tyres switched on to regain places. By staying out he just got them in the window as the race ended.
Not an easy call.
After all the RB bendy wings and automated pit stops and magic performance steps in a no-development season and whatnot, Karen Horner now seems to be implying Mercedes have cheated with the engine.
I loved over here when F1 was on NBCSN, they had their own commentators, Lee Diffey, David Hobbs & Steve Matchett who are phenomenal and always gave a different perspective. I would go back later on and watch the race on Sky to hear the different angles. But since 2018 it's on ESPN and it's just the Sky coverage we get the same as the UK. I wish those 3 were still doing F1 commentary, I'd love to see them join the Sky team every once in a while they'd fit right in.Sky Sports are usually to blame for blowing things out of proportion and trying to make a story out of nothing. I thought the racing was fair between Hamilton/Perez.
Would be interesting to watch F1 in the US or somewhere neutral altogether as no doubt we are getting the biased views of Sky fired at us.
