Lewis had a terrible start and stayed on the safe side in first laps pulled him even lower places.. after Ric pitted.. it was pure champion drive.. so great to see him performing top-notch again.. just at the right time putting in fastest laps..

lottery won by Max this race.. towards the end probably his tires d get even worse in dry so 7th was looking like where he d finish.. one way or another its a team sport.. well done to Red Bull..

Ferraris were looking racey which is cool.. as far as i remember Leclerc had the new updated engine but that update doesnt seem that good at least for this race..

Ric started to get in the mood and be more comfortable with the car and everything thats good news..

race wasnt that fun except few overtakes but it was a close race.. im super glad Lewis won almost by a minute..
I think it was bad info from the pit wall. NOR was thinking the same as HAM and thought the rain would hold up for the last 3-4 laps and nothing from McLaren would indicate that wouldn't be the case but Mercedes knew there was more rain coming and forced HAM into swapping tires which proved to be the correct call/strategy.

I'm usually the first to call out HAM's good fortune but McLaren blew it. Team MB was smarter today. Great job by MAX and RB too but Perez has got to go!!!

LEC's new Ferrari engine was a terrible let down

Especially since part of it's design philosophy is being carried forward to next years new engine. I'm already preparing to embrace the suck...AGAIN

The latest !

"Mercedes tried to disqualify (ban) MAX from the Russian GP" !

The Dutch article => https://f1journaal.be/probeerde-merc...p-van-rusland/

•MAX didn't set a laptime in Q1 because it was useless , because he had to start from P20 anyway by his HONDA PU replacement .
By the 107% FIA regulation the driver has to set a laptime , but Mercedes forgot that the 107% regulation doesn't apply because the qualification was officially declared as 'WET' !

Mercedes is a big shame for motorsports !!!

Merc didn't do their homework properly so BIG fail for them, they're getting as edgy as Ham is making mistakes, his biggest one is that he doesn't know Max at all

Don't forget the ''magic'' button too for something else other than to operate the front brakes only.

Enjoyable race.

Bottas burned up his new Monza PU in one race? Merc may be testing the power limits with Bottas.

Bottas claimed he didn’t see Max when the pass happened. Kudos to Bottas, he didn’t want to be a moving roadblock at a track he is consistently the strongest at. He may top the best number #2 drivers in F1 arguably in line with Barrichello.

What’s with Toto jumping on the radio so often, the pressure may be getting to him.

Exciting race today and a lot of positions changes due to the pit stops and rain changing. Fun to watch. Unlike NASCAR, where you just watch the last fifteen minutes that is really worth anything.

And what about the 'hidden Mercedes air cooling system ?

Seems like the Merc preachers don't like to discuss about it ...

As far as I know , the FIA 'never approved the Mercedes flexible front wing and the hidden PU air cooling system !

Tody shrugs his shoulders and Mike puts on his serious face as if nothing is going on, makes you think how long they can keep it up.

RB had a flexible rear wing this season mate.. even if they say it was normal, it disappeared on its on.. and on flexing part.. FIA is monitoring all teams with different methods already..

the thing i ve said was complaints per team.. like Lewis sneezes in his garage, RB complains to FIA saying its against rules tripe..
