    I think he over-heated them in an attempt to get a bit more temps into the front tyres.

    Certainly looked that way. They were smoking like crazy on the restart.

    Well, Verstappen and Hamilton no where near the podium. Pretty unexpected

    I think he thought it was a marathon not a sprint so went the long way

    Bet you'd have got good odds on that podium at the bookies.

    He should have followed my lead when we were under red.

    Monaco aside, this season has been excellent so far. Hope it keeps it up.

    Hamilton apparently flicked a switch that switches the brakes off without realising apparently

    Think it's some kind of bias shift for heating brakes/tyres under safety. Either hit it or left it on.

    I think they’re suggesting he clipped it with his hand accidentally while fighting with Perez.

    Another poor display from Bottas today. Doesn't seem to have the intelligence or balls to make a difference when things aren’t going well fo him.

    Disagree.

    I bet Toto won't come out and slag lewis for his blatant error, compared to his reaction when Valtteri stopped a bit short of his pit stop !

    I think those 2 tyre failures have handed the title to Mercedes. They really haven't had the pace with the softer compounds, and I think Pirelli will err on the harder side of caution from now until the end of the season, which plays into Mercdees hands.

    Alright... I'm gunna bite. What did Bottas do today? Yes he finished ahead of Hamilton due to an exceptionally rare error, but he was literally nowhere all day.

    winning 7 world titles for the team will get you a bit of slack.
