    That fastest lap though.

    Suddenly the backmarker / Magnussen.

    Rare to see such an unusual race be so dull.

    Haas destroyed Magnussen's race by not pitting him two SCs ago. He had a new set of softs and would've had the grunt to stay ahead of anyone challenging him...

    Wonder if Vettel will swap his first place board with LeClerc's second place. BS from Ferrari.

    Can't say that I enjoyed this race very much, even though there were some decent scraps in the midfield. Good to see Vettel not putting a foot wrong all race, but I'm frustrated for Leclerc. :indiff:

    The 3rd quarter of the race is pretty interesting.

    The rest is boring.

    I thought IMSA did the simple gather on straight and leader decides when to go within a certain restart zone. That makes the most sense. Leave it to the driver so he can psyche out one or two guys close behind but everyone is cleanly on the straight to go full beans and back to racing.

    Not a great race, but not quite Spain or France boring. Battle at the front was dull as dishwater because the midfield was too close. Not often you say that.

    Bad strategy for Charlie and Hamilton. Other than that, not too much happening other than some midfield overtaking and some desperate attempts.

    So how many times will LeLerc get screwed over before he moves to another team?

    Second half of the race was ruined by two stupid driving errors and a mechanical failure... but what on Earth where Mercedes thinking?

    If Lewis couldn’t pass a Red Bull with those fresher tyres, what hope did they think he’d have vs a Ferrari?!


    An overly dull and very disappointing race, but we can’t have great races every weekend!

    Yea I enjoy watching the midfield but still enjoy the front runners more so it sucks we didn't get a race there. I'm refreshing the Formula 1 official Constructor's Standings page to see how they stack up

    But F1 doesn't wait to be on the straight. Vettel went green coming out of the left/right area before the last turn!

    I think that certain energy in Spa has depleted for LeClerc this time. Sorry. Hopefully he got better instead of otherwise.

    LeClerc looks rightfully pissed.

    I was expecting this to be interesting but overall I'm left very disappointed. That one felt more boring than anything. Props to Vettel for finally getting his official win in 2019 and seeing Ferrari really getting into gear this late into the championship....maybe the upcoming races will be more interesting now.

    I think he heard me. I missed most of the proceedings as I woke up late, but good job Seb. Ferrari launching a long overdue title challenge.

    Ferrari engineers are apparently not quite used to stepping onto the podium :lol:

    The post-race room is so pointless now - nobody is gonna say something stupid when its fully broadcast unless tensions are incredibly high.

    Ferrari went for a 1-2 instead of a 1-3/4. They didnt screw up his race..

    Ugh I feel for LeClerc. Doesn't put a foot wrong all weekend, follows Ferrari's instructions in the race, and gets shafted by strategy... Definitely more deserving of P1 than Vettel.

    My driver of the day was so good at the front of the pack he lead it brilliantly with his twinkling lights... props to the safety car driver lol What a borefest had to happen eventually I guess... Le Clerc really seemed to enjoy the Raikonnen treatment...
