Good god these cars are boring...really hope they sort out the aero next year. Total yawnfest having cars that can't follow each other.

Agreed, I can’t even be bothered to watch anymore. So much for the redesigns this year to allow them get closer. The most excitement now is whether they can get into drs range - which they rarely can. Hopefully it gets better next year.

Enjoyed that, fair play to RB for taking the win at a Mercedes stronghold. They should be the favourites now but I think engine reliability is going to decide this championship.

RB and Max have learnt track position and playing the margin is how to win this championship.

Poor form having an interview over the radio messages at the end.

Max got very lucky to pick up the DRS activation from the Haas and Lewis wasn't quite close enough to get it himself
Yeah. Ugh. What a race but just not the right result. Mercedes seem to be leaving Lewis alot to do in their strategy calls recently? What was wrong with covering off the first undercut and matching RB's strategy?

Mercedes dropped the ball on strategy there. Clear Max couldn't pass on the first stint and no reason to believe that would change. Undercutting RB would have worked, IMO.

RB covered Merc undercutting by pitting way earlier than anyone expected I think.
