    The pace of Haas F1 is actually quite impressive. Another fantastic overtake!
    On the contrary, it's actually quite sad to see the lack of pace of Williams for the past few races/2015 season. Doesn't seem like they have the pace to be competitive in this season either.

    Oh no.. a slow pitstop for Rosberg. He won't be nearly 20 seconds ahead of Kimi now.

    That wasn't down to power really. Bottas had to compromise his line, and had 4 wheels on the rumble strip during the acceleration phase. Max played it right and got a clean drive off the corner.

    Edit, not 4 on the rumble, just mad oversteer on the throttle.

    The future of F1 does look kinda promising, drivers wise.

    Pascal, Max, Stoffel, Carlos. All talented. Good stuff.

    That also means he's down on power since decals add HP. Known fact. :sly:

    That makes a surprising amount of sense! But does he have red brake calipers? That would compensate quite bit

    We've been talking about the Manor, but Sauber is showing great pace today!!

    Edit. "Great pace", relatively speaking :p

    Rosberg feels lonely. Will Kimi come to rescue? ;)
