    Such a good race! Really fun to watch start to finish. It had everything and constant battles!

    Very good race ... but as always the fight only exists from the second place to the bottom.
    Incredible battle between Leclerc and Verstappen!!

    I think Norris deserved a better position today. Bad luck

    It was great! Everyone in a great mood and the sun came out just after the race :)

    Also, Furnace & The Fundamentals were really good. I mean, crowd pleasing covers but great mash-ups and playing with enthusiasm - and for an hour longer than they were meant to (drivers took ages...).

    That's a weird thing to say when the only drivers who finished where they started were 3rd, 7th and 10th.

    This year is strange.
    When the races are boring, they are really boring; when the races are good they are really really good.

    This was next level shit

    Real talk:

    Seb got overtaken by Pierre today, who should Ferrari get to replace him?

    That looks like a lot of ground effect and a massive diffuser.

    First (full) race I watched in a while, probably years, and I have to agree... WOW! That was some first class entertainment. What was wrong with Mercedes today? I don't think I have ever seen a race fall apart for one team that badly... at least not in a long time

    3 old circuits, 3 incredible races.
    Let's see how the season evolves, even though WDC and WCC are over.

    In fairness Bahrain is a very new circuit and that was a good race, too.

    I think a big thing is that has been hidden by the action up front is that the coverage for the rest of the pack has vastly improved in the last few races. A lot of the races this year have been pretty good we just haven't seen the race, with the cameras squarely focused on circulating Mercedes.

    4 in a row now! Great race to watch. TV direction was great, but unfortunately missed Sainz and Gasly.

    FOM need to face facts that DotD doesn't work.

    Loved it. Great racing at the front and right though the field.
    Pleased for Russell and Williams this weekend. Never thought I'd think qualifying and race finish of 16th would be a good result, but there we go.

    Agreed. Totally meaningless.

    Yea good stuff allround!
    Sainz is really getting some nice points this year, he barely seems to get any recogniztion for it though.

    I agree on the DotD, it's just 'who has the most fans actively voting', and eh, crazy Dutch people are crazy.....(not always proud to be afiliated with them)

    Red Bull drop Gasly and promote Albon. Hopefully he'll perform, but that's a lot of pressure after only 12 races. Easy to think they didn't take Kvyat for Marko to save face, but also the talk is that Kvyat doesn't have the precarious RB young driver deal that the others have. They may be evaluating Albon against Max and drop him back down to Toro Rosso again if he's not on it by the end of the season.
