    How much time does a pit stop take including in and out?
    Looks like clc is getting hammer down and maybe take first when Lewis pits?

    Shame when it’s the last race for months and you can’t really be bothered to keep watching. Not very interesting is it?

    Not sure why Ferrari pitted CLC so early. Going to lose position to Max now.


    Oh yeah, it’s Ferrari.

    They should pit CLC now again, bung him on softs and let him past Vettel to go for fastest lap. Except Ferrari...

    At least CLC has his head switched on.

    Way too risky given Ferrari's recent mess ups. Would be fun though. Mind you he will probably be disqualified.

    At this stage, 20 laps no worries.

    Pirelli advertising they supplied close to 40,000 tyres to F1 this year! Not sure that is a great advert?

    They make the tyres to the brief they were given. Something of a poisoned chalice maybe.

    Driver of day Hulk, that's nice. Think Bottas 2nd and Kubica 3rd.

    Well, another season bites the dust- not much of a race in truth to sign off with and to be honest, highly unlikely we will see any real emergence in the final year of regulations in 2020.

    Wherher Ferrari can produce a more balanced car akin to 2017 is probably the question of the winter, and whether Red Bull can make the step up. I have to say though, they should concentrate on 2021 and look to leapfrog Mercedes then rather than next season.

    Hamilton ought to have an outstanding chance at levelling with Michael Schumacher on 7 title wins. Who would have thought that when he left McLaren in 2012? Incredible really.

    One of my big take always from this years is McLaren. What a change to the po-faced team of old. An exciting team on the up with a couple of very talented and genuinely loveable drivers. Hope they can take another step forward next year and snap at the heels of the big three.
