    What disrespectful nonsense, in my opinion. Welcome to F1 racing. It's not exhibition laps. Did you hear Vettel? "C'est pour toi, Jules".

    The giant LED sign by the pit entrance that says

    "Bernie Says:
    Think before you drive."

    I'd always assumed that was a general PSA, after todays bloodbath it should probably be for the race drivers too.

    :lol:

    Very emotional day. It's all sinking in now. This was all for Jules. Yhe Ferrari win was meant to be. What a way to farewell a fantastic young man who had his life tragically cut short. RIP Jules, you'll forever be in our hearts. :(

    If I so much hear any complaints about Renault power units during the summer break, I will send a flipped table to RBR HQ...yes I realize the mail shipping will be through the roof. And yes a picture says a thousand words but...

    As for the race...I dont even know what is going on but I'm glad for a sad weekend it put a smile back on every race fan. And a good way to remember a great driver that was Jules.

    Gutted I missed the last 10 laps. Thanks Mom

    Man I miss RBR, they deserve to be up there and we need Mclaren back for an epic 4 way battle in the top.

    Something tells me Jules had the best seat of the house. :)

    Boy, oh, boy. That was a race from the start. Another poor start for the Mercedes duo, Hamilton's off, Perez almost flipping, exploding front wings, a virtual and safety car, Kimi's day going south, multiple infractions, Rosberg's flat and Kvyat's first podium. I can't see how this race won't be the best of the season.

    Championship-wise, I'll leave it at this:

    Impossible, that spot is reserved for Rosberg.

    @sniffpetrol

    Aaaaand we're just hearing that Maldonado has received another penalty for dropping his crash helmet on a table of canapes.

    They'd better check that. Could be a doctored photocopy.

    -

    Perhaps they should amend points to being permanent? That'd probably prevent carnage like this in the future.

    That absolutely wasn't a problem, the contact happened afterwards.

    It might be that Nico decided the softs wouldn't last long enough. Or he was confident that Lewis couldn't pip him on the same tires, and he wanted to have enough tire life to make the end.

    But yes, that last mistake really sealed the deal.

    I've said it several times before and I'll say it again: this is why I do not like these podium interviews.

    They're so incredibly impersonal and ragtag.

    So with driver now figuring out the clutch points, it seems Mercedes is now weak at starts. This now changes everything pretty much for the rest of the season.

    I heard something from Kvyat about it being for Jules too.

    Which made me wonder if it's just the people who managed to secure decent results who were driving their race on Jules' behalf, or if it was everyone. Was Hamilton's 6th place creditable to Jules? Did Maldonado get three penalties "for Jules"? Were Mehri and Stevens plodding round at the back 2 laps down "for Jules"?

    I cant help but laugh at this pic.

    Hammy prayed for nico to have trouble, and it happened.

    Who ever hamiltons god is, I want to know so I can ask him the lotto numbers for the next super draw.

    Hopefully F1 will continue after the break where it stopped today. Best race of the season so far. Just the fact that it wasn't a dominant drive from Merc made this race so more enjoyable.

    Indeed. Sure he 'started' the confrontation (from so far back he might as well have been coming from RBR's home base of Milton Keynes) but it was a racing incident after that.

    Both Merc drivers owe their team an apology or two. Today was refreshingly all about the drivers.

    That only makes him human. And it gave everyone one hell of a race.
