  2. No complacency at Mercedes - Hamilton

    Race nine. Will it be a ninth win in a row for Mercedes? Few would bet against it, but Lewis Hamilton says that Mercedes’ success is founded on their lack of complacency.

    “There is not a single person in the team who arrives and thinks we are going to win it just like that and that’s why it’s the best team because everyone comes knowing they’ve got to put the work in.”

    What's wrong with Formula 1 and how do you fix it?

    So let's get straight into it. That French Grand Prix was probably the worst race of the season with the only action being Daniel Ricciardo's last-lap overtakes, which he subsequently picked up two five-second penalties for to drop down from seventh to 11th.

    So what now? Let's have a good debate today.

  4. Don't blame the drivers - Hamilton

    After the race, championship leader Lewis Hamilton went on the defensive.

    He said he "understands" if people find Formula 1 boring in the face of Mercedes' domination but says it is not his or the team's fault.

    Hamilton's victory in Sunday's French Grand Prix was his sixth in eight races this year - his team-mate Valtteri Bottas has won the other two.

    The world champion put the blame on the sport's bosses and in particular former leader Bernie Ecclestone.

    "Don't point fingers at the drivers, we don't write the rules," he said. "We have nothing to do with money shifting, all that kind of stuff. You should put the pressure on the people at the head, who should be doing the job."
