That Verstappen made up 5 points in the championship based on last week was a total disgrace.

The fawning over him by sky is a bit tiresome too. You would think he's the one with 7 titles and almost 100 wins.

I think my favourite 2 on the grid now are Leclerc and Norris. Leclerc just seems to be a genuinely decent bloke in comparison to a Max type.

No points should have been awarded last week. I also resent red bull having 4 drivers with alpha Tauri as the baby team can influence a race on beckoning of the main team.

My favourite non Lewis drivers are Norris and Pierre Gasly.

Some real shithouse tactics by red bull this season.

Mercedes basically have a B team as well, as do Ferrari

Bottas to Alfa Romeo

Therefore, expect a Russell to Mercedes announcement soon

I hope so. Russell might be a little slower to let Verstappen through when bein lapped.

Great race this afternoon.

Solid and professional from Danny Ric and Lando.
Demolition Derby from Max and Lewis.

Entertaining race, pleased for McLaren. The Lewis v Max crash has been coming but Max knew what he was doing there and showed a massive lack of class not even bothering to check on his fellow driver after he parked his car on his head.

Great driver and I admire the competitive nature but I can’t escape the fact he’s a bit of a wanker.

A bit.... He's a full on entitled prick and it shows in the way he drives. He knew damn well once Lewis gets the corner in turn 1 there is only 1 line through turn 2, he's behind so does what Max does, crashes rather than backs out. He knew they were going to crash at Silverstone too, there was miles of room for him to back off and fought another day, but he would sooner crash. First lap In 3 races this season he's run Lewis out of road without penalty, so keeps doing it, the man is dangerous and needs to grow up in the car. One of the reasons Hamilton has 7, and genuinely for engine failure could have 9 world championships now is his ability to back out and bide his time. After 130 or so GP, he had learnt the lesson. Max has the better car on most tracks because the FIA handed Red Bull the advantage by changing the floor regs so much last winter, he should be miles ahead now. The fact they are not should worry them.

Even the grid pen is a waste of time because he's going to take an engine penalty anyway in Sochi.

Agree with all of that, he is a menace.  Red Bull should be v concerned that their drivers immaturity is the reason they aren’t miles ahead in Championship.  If he had bided his time at Silverstone and at the weekend he’d probably have won both races as well as saving hundreds of thousands on car repairs.  Lewis was a hothead but learnt if can’t win you accumulate as many points as you can…he has verstappen on strings at the moment

I can't believe Red Bull are dictating terms over the new engine format from 2025 too. Merc et Al should hold strong. I don't really like the idea of over 50% of power coming from electric on an f1 car either... But maybe I'm an old git.

I really want 4 teams in the title fight next season. It would make it so much better.

Sir Lewis @ Met Gala 2021…the hit on the head at the weekend must’ve affected him more than the Doctor’s thought

In fairness that's pretty tame for Lewis. He wears some really odd shit. A suit with a net curtain is a bit of a head scratcher though. Where is the functionalilty. Just blocks your pocket.
