Decent race in the end. Happy Danny Ric won. Lew and Max playing chicken with each other could start to make things interesting. Bottas reaction to being asked about and shown the incident was great.

Max should get 3 points on his license for not seeing if Hamilton was ok. That was beyond rivalry

Next race Max will now take a new power unit. So penalty not too much impact.

Love Lando. Do you think it is most beneficial to the team that Danny wins.


1) Because there was nothing wrong with Lewis. He was awake and moving the entire time. He was probably checked out at the infield care center, but nothing else was really needed for him.

2) Max got 2 points just like Lewis got 2 points when he tried out for the Highway Patrol and pitted Max in Silverstone.

3) Team wise, it doesn't matter as McLaren will still get the same amount of points, but Riccardo needed the points more to get out of his struggle in the midfield while Lando being 4th right now is just him being an overachiever.

I think Lando and the team were worried that by having them race each other or swapping positions, it would slow them back into Perez and Bottas.
I was surprised they had so much pace in hand. The last lap they both turned the fastest laps of the race, Danny a tenth quicker than Lando.

The three place grid drop is about as light as they could do, a hand slap.

The engine swaps and penalties coming up for everyone seem to be a bigger issue. They are just over half way through the season so they all may end up taking more than one more before the season ends.

Talk about n couple of good drivers putting the team first

Just before Lando radioed that Danny Ric was driving too slow,Danny radioed the Pit to ask if he should slow down a bit to provide a bit of a slipstream to help Lando with extra speed...as he was lacking DRS capability




No, Daoism isn't a religion

Never a Bottas fan but an impressive drive today.
He drove like he had nothing to lose. Too bad for him he never figured out the other side of that, driving with everything to gain.

Enjoyed the race, especially without a runaway out front.
Bottas stormed the field, and was flying, even on the hard tire.

Knew the top 3-5 would be a lot harder to pass.

Glad to see DR back on top. First McLaren 1-2 in 11 years Eek

IIRC, no one was lapped. SC & VSC likely helped with that.

There is no regulation that says you have to check on another driver. Consequently, there can not be any penalty for not doing so. Also, although Max knew his car went over Hammy’s car, I’m sure he didn’t know that his wheel went over his head, and since he saw him moving around in the cockpit and trying to reverse out, he correctly assumed he was OK.

Not only that, it’s pretty dangerous to go up to the cockpit of a car that’s trying to reverse out. If Hammy had pulled free, there is a good chance that someone standing next to the cockpit may have been clipped by the front wing, or what was left of it.

It was a good race, especially after the snooze in Holland.

I thought the crash was a no-penalty event, but if you were going to penalize anyone, it was going to be Verstappen, as Hamilton was ahead of him at that point. It looked to me that Hamilton left Verstappen a scant car's width, but no more. The curbs really caused the wreck in my view.

Everyone loves to see Ricciardo win. He is such a likable fellow. Norris was the perfect teammate. It kinds of reminds you of what racing would be like if MB and Red Bull weren't so dominant. Maybe the formula changes will help next year.

Bottas drove very well, obviously.

Maybe, with the sliding allocation of wind tunnel testing, MB & RBR will get a lot less & teams like Williams & Alfa will get >100%. Hopefully stuff like that can narrow the gap at the front & the back.

I'm a Bottas fan, so hopefully Alfa can give him a good car. Maybe they get it right & come out of the gate with a Williams 2014 start.
I read something that Alfa was looking forward to the change, so they could rectify their 'mistake' on the front wing. They, and Ferrari, went with the heavily tapered outer edge of the front wing elements. Alfa didn't have the resources to fully redesign the car in order to alter that front wing profile.

Watched about 1/2 the Schumacher documentary on Netflix, up to the end of '97.
Nothing new that I didn't know before, but still enjoying it.

I did the same up until about 25 minutes to go. They are at the end of his first four years at Ferrari when he breaks his leg.
It's OK, not great. I was surprised that they have addressed some of his controversial moments in a way I didn't expect including some polite but critical interviews.

Wondering if one of those will be Damon Hill. On the F1 Nation podcast they occasionally drift near their conflicts and he is always very carefully respectful but still clearly not willing to cut Michael any slack for his actions. Which is ok, IMHO.

Yes, both Hill and Villeneuve and some others that I didn't expect too, like Ross Brawn.
They were generally respectful but told it like it is.

It was a surprisingly interesting race, especially when 1 car lead basically the whole race. Great to see Ricardo get a win. Still don't know what to think of the sprint races. I started watching F1 in 2018 and this is the most interesting season I have seen by far.
