245...Sure but MV would have expected to be at least fifth, had he finished. And you are spot on, wingman Bottas isn't really a credible challenger, that's why he is still in the seat, good enough to be a no2, and good enough to win if anything unexpected happens to the team leader.The MAP was faster than the SF over the 88 race laps done by the 2 cars, by only 5 seconds, but still quicker.
That's weird. According to the experts on here, Hamilton should have won because he supposedly has the best car? They say that after every race, so I don't understand how he's only 2nd. Strange. Anyway, well done Charles. Well done Albon. Hard luck Lando.
@244 Dave Benton,Realistically, Max was never going to be in with a chance of winning that one. Bottas is still the main challenger, but is a challenger any threat when he's not allowed to challenge?Merc have the best overall package, and Hamilton is in a different league to Bottas, but he's a compliant team mate who can get good points from a great car, which is why he's got another year.
241...I did. I guess it is an entirely satisfactory result for the German team, championship wise. Even at a circuit they were expected to be slower at their two cars were quicker than their rivals machinery. Of course, a win for their team leader would have been ideal, but his nearest real challenger, at lights out, had a DNF.
@238 knightSV was only ever good in a dominant Red Bull against an average team mate. Look what happened when Danny Ric joined. It's not a coincidence that it is the same story now.Good job by Charles, still think Ferrari tried to spoke his wheel, and only recanted when it obviously went all wrong. Beating the competition and your own team...
congratulations leclerc on your first f1 victoty and i am sure you will have more.good you dedicated your victory to the late hubert. all the best in the future leclerc from a lewis fan.
Merc forced/bluffed Vettel into an early pit stop, so two stop race for him from that point. Is his time at Ferrari comint to an end? Hope not.Anyone else notice that Bottas advised not to push and save his tyres?
Took Ferrari too long to realise who was their best driver. The only surprise today was that wingman Vettel obeyed team orders and let Leclerc through.
Well done Charles, Lewis and Valtteri.
What has happened to Seb V?
Well done Charles - Unashamed Lewis fab here but delighted you showed the world how good you are.
I'm sure that's gonna be a hugely popular result Very well done Charles.
The right result, CL deserved that.
The Hulk to Ferrari next season?
Vettel now knows his place during his remaining time with Ferrari - wingman for Leclerc
224...If this answer is on topic, how was the question off topic, because that's the justification for its removal. Note...the justification, not the reason. :(
This is tiresome, I reply to someone's point, directly, with a relevant and reasoned response and my post is removed as 'off topic'. If every time anyone did that this HYS would be pointless and unreadable.No, the post was not directly about the qualifying session. Yes, it was a rational and inoffensive reply to something relevant to the discussions here posted by someone else.
