    I'd be extremely surprised if Red Bull didn't have an extra half a second a lap in their pocket. Their pit stop timing seemed extremely confident to me, as if they are certain they have the pace to catch and pass.

    i.e. the "we know we've got the best car, we'll just run our race and breeze past under DRS" later strat.

    I wouldn't like to be the next pair of giant beach ball tits Dan gets his hands on if Hamilton wins this.

    Perez doing well. Not impossible that he can beat Bottas now.

    Really enjoying this. F1 is great when it's not a done deal by half race distance.

    Yeah, I ummed and ahhed about a NowTV sub but on this evidence, it might be a worthwhile outlay.

    Fuck me. I like Vettel off the track but he comes out with some utter bullshit on track to excuse his mistakes.

    Didn't think there was much wrong with that overtake tbh.

    Wow. Pretty surprised Max gave that back. This Hamilton fella is decent though.

    Damn.. that was some drive from both of them. Superb from Lewis to manage that. Reckon Max will be rueing that dive off the track.

    Good race though. Hopefully a taste of what we can expect the rest of the season.

    @monkman76 I guess a time penalty was riskier than just giving it back. Well off the track though.

    Good race that.

    Bit unsure they needed to give that back tbh. Think they thought they were a certainty to get by anyway but the tyres only had enough for one attack.

    I'll take the Ham win for the fantasy points mind you.

    Yeah that was exactly the same.

    Well, that was amazing, can't ask for a much better race than that.

    Fair play to those who argued the race would be close, I'm delighted to be so wrong. I really thought Red Bull were simply managing their tyres throughout. Could be a brilliant season.

    Norris barely got a mention but he was immense in winning the class B battle. He was consistently 0.3-0.5s a lap fast than his team mate the whole race.

    Was a far cry from seasons gone by. If they won every championship with races like that there wouldn't be much to complain about.

    Thing that needs to be worried about is that they clearly don't have full confidence in the car yet and still have the race pace to at least match the next best team. Still think it's going to end up far more dominant than first impressions would suggest.

    Yeah Lando did a great job today. Good statement what with it being Ricciardo's first race.

    Really enjoyed that, should be a good season like Lewis V Nico, the last time it was exciting.

    Are you retarded? That was an epic race. Was genuinely jumping up and down at the finale.

    That one’s going on the highlight reel when Lewis retires.

    Brundle just said it best: "The podium might look a bit samey, but it was a whole lot more fun getting there."

    Absolutely loved that race - it wasn't won by someone 20 seconds ahead at the front of the pack. You couldn't call it from the second pitstop. More please. :)
