    Totally worth the millions of Indonesian money he's bringing in.

    Doesn't look like HAAS will score any points this week.

    "He'd be halfway through the field by now" Ummm Steve, he literally already is halfway through the field.

    Wow, that Mercedes has such grip and performance, anyone that says the RBR is the chassis to beat and the Mercedes is all engine...I don't think so. He's taking whatever line he wants and actually has performance where other cars dont.

    I can definitely see F1 revising both rules for the next race, regarding the tire usage and extending pit road rules to the entry road as well.

    When you have more power you can put more downforce on the car... The red bull typically has the best aero hence why Ferrari and merc didn't want to give them engines for this year

    Not really, more aero doesn't mean much if it doesn't mesh with the power. Look at FI and Williams who have done this over last year and aren't any stronger than before. At least not yet. In other words Mercedes actually have a design that is probably on par or better than RBR. They didn't give RBR and engine because RBR wanted engine parity and not just to be a customer team.

    Well honestly, who wants to be the next supplier that gets childishly thrown under the bus?

    Hulkenburg gets 5 second penalty for driving too slow on pit road entry. Perez will get a review too.

    Incident involving Hulkenberg under investigation - driving unnecessarily slowly in the pit entry.

    ~ EDIT ~ He got a 5 second time penalty.

    But way out of sync with everyone else. So not too representative of where he lies.

    The amount of overtaking in this race must be one of the highest in the last few years.

    Vettel is closing in on Kyvat. This certainly feels like the calm before the storm.

    Everyone, the fastest lap of the race belongs to...a McLaren Honda.


    Edit: And now, a Haas F1 car.

    Hamilton must be getting really frustrated by now. Both Ricciardo and Raikkonen passes Massa with relative ease, while he is stuck and can't get by.
