    Quite enjoyed today - if you leave the politics and rules out of why the race was as it was with the car differences, was quite entertaining to watch and lots of battles going on.

    Enjoyed Max and his "please let me have new tyres", then setting a new lap record.

    DT.

    Thats the big thing for me.

    By the letter of the law, the penalty was correct. The problem is, the letter of that specific law wasn't applied by to anyone else throughout the rest of the race.

    Ferrari International Assistance need to sort their stewards out.

    Bottas stayed ahead of Ricciardo at the start by going off the track while being overtaken, putting his foot down and and rejoining ahead of him. No penalty.
    No consistency at all.

    What were your views on the MV penalty at the end?
    it was an absolute travesty.
    no ifs, buts, maybes, it was a ridiculous, disgraceful decision.

    Good to know though. Have an accident on purpose. Mouth off about it for days after about how it was the other guy. Then issue an apology because you're told to, and the problems all go away.

    Designing tracks for cars???

    Much like making them easier for the drivers?? These are supposedly the best drivers in the World and tracks have to be made easier to drive!!!
    I was referring to the car design changes, to be more specific the width of the car seems to be the cause of a lot of the incidents

    Not a one car procession, a whole host of different incidents, different podium drivers and teams.

    What is becoming quite evident on a couple of tracks, despite the design alterations - the desire for speed means a lot of tracks are actually right on the edge of suitable for the car design.
    i used to use the f1 as afternoon nap time. This year it's actually kept me a awake the few races I've watched.
    vettel overstepped the mark. He was punished it could have been harsher it wasn't. Time will tell if it has An effect on the season

    in Moto gp Valentino had a similar issue with Marc Marquez he was punished more severely and then everyone was in uproar as it ended up costing him the world title. Whatever option they take will be wrong.

    i for one am actually looking forward to the next few races that's not something I've said in a long time.
