More like 4th or 5th to about 12th.

Usually Ham, Bot, Ver out in front & an enjoyable fight behind them.

Caught the last forty five of free practice, the announce team spent the vast majority of their time quibbling over how many wins Little Lew Lew should have vs. could have. Oh boy a race weekend. Roll Eyes

Saw the results. Looking forward to seeing what happened to put the order like that.

Daddy’s boy lucked out in not being busted for ignoring a double yellow. But I don’t expect his time at the front to last very long. He’ll get passed by Max and the Mercs, and likely wreck it sometime during the race anyway.

Were the Racing Points the only ones on full wets for Q3, is that why we have this unlikely result?

Well, that was an interesting race. As much as LH grates on me, that was an impressive drive.

Agreed, those Inters were pretty much slicks.

Stroll did decently until late in the race, cheers to Chsco for the podium.

Horrible day for Bottas, but Seb's best drive all season.

Not that he was going to win, but Stroll apparently had some underwing damage early in the race that they didn't identify until afterwards. That is supposedly what was causing the graining and handling issues.

Sounds like I actually missed a decent race, but this is the first season in almost 20 years that I have started skipping races. The overwhelming boringness of year after year of Mercedes dominance has finally gotten to me, and it doesn't help that I've never liked Hamilton.

The weather, unfamiliar track & newly resurfaced track made for a lot of unexpected.

I thought Stroll did great until the team called him in for a pit stop. It was downhill after that and just one more disappointing chinstrap win.

Stroll had front wing damage that wasn't discovered until post race.
Caused understeer & probably cost him a podium, possibly the win.

Read the article if you need further clarification, no reason to waste bandwidth c&ping the text.

Otherwise just Roll Eyes
