That was a champions drive from Lewis, an entertaining race where Lewis looked like he had no chance of winning after the first couple of laps.

F1 is always better when it's raining!

Incredible that the Safety Car didn't get an outing.

Bottas must have arrived back in the Pits totally dizzy. I think that he had four separate spins.

It was interesting to listen to Stroll over race radio as he went from totally calm to stressed out.
Racing Point's tactics of setting the cars up to blitz the wet start, but knowing that they'd be fecked if the track dried out, almost got them a win.

Setup was virtually impossible on that track. It seemed to change sector-by-sector, lap-by-lap.

At one point the Racing Points were lapping 3/4 secs quicker than the field, then the Ferraris, then the Red Bulls, then the Mercedes - it was brilliantly insane!

And even if you happened on a window when your car was actually working, if you put it a couple of centimetres wide on some of the corners you'd end up in a puddle and quickly find yourself facing backwards!!

Once again, it demonstrated why Hamilton's the best F1 driver there's ever been.

He's ridiculously brilliant. I can't think of a better sportsman. I really hope he's appreciated properly because he's Pele, Woods, Williams, Federer, Ali level. And the second best sportsman from Stevenage after Ashley Young.
