Some excellent gp's this year, Monaco, Austria and Britain have been classics
]]

Really? Today Hamilton lead from start to finish without any real challenge and the only excitement was some bloke trying to drive with only three wheels and the odd spin because of the rain. F1 is tedious in the extreme.

I thought it was excellent.  Car and drivers both on the limits of adhesion for 90% of the race and spitting them off the track at the slightest chance

And how much better would it have been to let them race from the start instead of the ridiculous safety car start?

If I'd paid 300 for a ticket to see that procession I'd have been seriously pissed off, let the drivers show us their skill in controlling a race car in difficult conditions.

Jon, I agree, it shouldn't have started under the safety car

Vettel. Ferrari are looking good this season. It'll be a bunfight between him and Hamilton regardless of the new rules and cars.

A race won by pit crew. Well done to Ferrari.

A race won by a car that kept its tyres in better nick for longer rather than a pit crew.  There was next to nothing difference between the crews

Didn't Hamilton blow the race when he came out from a stop behind Verstappen? or someone similar?

Bump this again. After two races I can see the title will go to whichever of Vettel or Hamilton have the better luck. Were it not for that safety car Vettel would probably have two wins in the bag.

Ferrari have done a team job today. Slowing down Kimi  by early pit stop to ensure Vettel takes the lead.
