    Lol holy shit that was the craziest last 3 laps of a race I've ever seen!! All from out of freaking nowhere. When they showed Hamilton and his tire on the last lap I was absolutely freaking out.

    Bottas out of the points! Ferrari once again getting a car on the podium even though they suck! And......Lando AGAIN getting the better of Sainz!

    That ending was something. Announcers are debating if Verstappen should have pitted or not at the very end to go for the win. Can’t predict that his tires would have not had the same problems as a bunch of the other guys and that Hamilton was going to have a problem.

    Yeah you can't fault Red Bull. They couldn't have known Lewis was gonna suffer the same fate as Valteri plus as you said Max's own tires weren't that great at that point.

    The middle of the pack team standings is now fantastic. McLaren was, and maybe is still 3rd but they only got one car in the points this race. Racing Point is supposed to be the poor man's Merc but they only got Stroll to finish 9th. Meanwhile Renault went 4th and 6th to pick up some big points.

    Just finished it. Fun ending! Seems especially silly now that Hamilton didn’t pit after Max did.

    Charles will win a world championship if they get him a car.

    Two podiums in a terrible car

    Racing Point seems to have a slick car on Saturday... When Sunday comes around the lack of skilled drivers and probably a car not as quick always has them going backwards.

    middle of the pack is where the action is. And probably what are Redbull going to do with seat 2. Since there seems to be a ton of smoke around Albon

    I have heard that too and imo it's pretty early to think about pulling the plug on him. With that being said, I'd be ecstatic if they got my boy George to be in that seat. What a combination of talent that would be between Max and him.

    Play of the day had to be Grosjean cutting off everyone trying to pass him.
