    One could argue Max thought he was ok, and may have been, if Lewis stayed inside after committing to the inside.

    Let’s check it to see what the team manager of Alpha Tauri think!

    To change my tack for a second, Leclerc shouldn’t really be in first, passed after the yellow almost certainly was being waved.

    I have no idea what the rules are or who was at fault, but this is great drama for this race and moving forward.

    Not so sure on that. He passed as Lewis was trying to get back on the racing line. Pretty bang, bang.

    Also it's not going to really matter. Lewis and/or Valterri are going to pass him in no time.

    This is now perfectly poised for Checo to come from the rear and win.

    What I don't get is why the stewards can't make a decision one way or another before the restart of the race. It's not like they're doing anything else and they've had plenty of time.

    Weird, no argument from Lewis. I wonder why?


    Because he knew he caused that wreck

    I assume that Perez’s hard tire choice out of the restart means he is going for a one stop late stop. Still doing a good job climbing up with the harder compound although stuck behind Gasly/Raikonnen.

    Perez pitted, never mind. I don’t know his tire inventory so maybe that’s why he had hards.

    Even if it’s temporary and a pit stop difference illusion, seeing Ferrari 1-2 is not what I thought I’d see today.

    I thought Leclerc just went too far on the outside and didn’t steer enough and caught the edge of the curbs.

    Looked like LEC ran himself off. Hamilton was pretty tight to the corner. LEC had a hell of a race especially with the engine issues

    Props to Danny Ric for holding Sainz off for as long as he did. Felt like Sainz was within DRS range for 20+ laps.

    Thank god Max wasn't seriously injured.

    I can’t stand the announcers lumping bold/stupid decisions in with good racing. Lewis tried to squeeze into a lane that wasn’t there and all of a sudden it becomes Max’s burden to avoid him.

    Dumb.
