I think Jos is also happy the race is over
Brilliant drive from Verstappen - quite simply one of the greatest drives in F1 history...
If Vettel sees this race he'll retract his complaint.
Max will be a World Champion. My doubts and questions about that were answered today.
I can safely say Verstappen has truly mastered the art of racing in the rain today.
As a Manor fan is its a little gutting that Sauber is ahead of MRT, but they derserved it, just was quicker in the wet and Nasr drove very well.
That went from being a near disaster to being something rather special...
Nico now needs a third place for a world title, in other words Lewis needs a Nico DNF.
Proper F1 guy doing the interview and not some crap celebrity...
Still don't know why it was delayed though.
Why use a DNF when you can have a Verstappen?
and once again DOTD. Our Max! this time really deserved it. but also great performance of MERC's by just cruising around
Great podium ceremony.
Surprisingly, it was a fantastic race, after all.
He needs 2 of him
It's a damn shame that Max had his strategy ruined, otherwise he'd have really given us a show tussling with Lewis up front. Instead he gave us a show gliding through the field, like Schumacher used to do in these conditions.
Driver of the day: Lewis, obviously.
Dank je wel, Max Verstappen. That was worth the wait.
While it's tempered by the knowledge that Max, at the end, had the benefit of massively fresher tires than everyone else, that run was incredible. The overtake on Vettel was one of the hardest won battles of the year.
Still, have to give props to Lewis... probably the only person who Verstappen couldn't pass up there. Just put his foot in it to build a cushion. Very controlled race. As expected, as Lewis is pretty handy in the rain.
But Max, that was a master class. Finding all the unusual lines. Taking risks. Which is proper. If you're tiptoeing around the track in these conditions, you're just vacillating between going dog slow and spinning out. If you're pushing it, you've already got half a turn of countersteer ready when it lets go.
EDIT: Alex Yoong touched upon the same point in the Fox post-race analysis when pointing out Max's spin. Max knew it was coming, so he was on it, countering, braking and releasing right away. Not caught unawares like Kimi was. The save was only half down to incredible reaction times, and half down to anticipation.
Favorite points of the race were that overtake on Vettel and Massa hugging his family on the grid, with the entire Mercedes and Ferrari garages out in force to see him off. One of the nicest guys never to be champion. Pure class from start to finish.
The marshals in the final corner were bracing for a Max crash but turned to applauding
Yes! All this through my wet eyes...
Seeing Massa walk up towards the pit lane and then all the way along it was one of the best things I have seen in F1.
Manor just lost a lot of money today..
If I was a betting man I'd put some monies on Max being WDC next year.
speaks for itself. partly Dutch but very good to understand
Ocon definitely deserved a point for that drive, such a shame
Well chosen English words
...with the Brazilian TV presenters in tears...
Come to think of it. I may do that.
Any way of finding out what Gutierrez said over radio that couldn't even be played on TV?
