that was an awesome race!!!!
such bad luck for LeClerc though, he really deserved that win!
and so it was business as usual.....in the end Lewis wins :D

he lucked into the win, but didn't steal it though, he really had to fight and fought well to be in the position to take advantage of the situation
which brings us to vettel....you crashed again, mate?? maybe grosjean should pass on the phonenumber of his psychologist?

After what we saw in testing, it's really bizarre to see the standings look like this after the first 2 rounds:



Ferrari is cursed, I think. Maybe Mick will bring some good luck...

He didn't do too badly, but I doubt he'll race.

Last race was jam packed full of action. So gutted for Leclerc, heartbreaking.

What a snooze fest that hyped up 1000th GP was. Called everything from the start with the exception of yet another Ferrari strategy fuck up. I still don't understand, with 33 seconds gap to the next car behind, why don't they pit Leclerc for the softest compound available and make him gun for the fastest lap.

Who knows, maybe it's because Sebastian had the fastest lap right up until Gasley took it on the last lap.

100% a 2017/18 race. Just boooooooring and predictable.

what was ferrari thinking?
time and time again vettel showed he cracks under pressure, the last thing they need to do it make leclerc go out of the way for the ferrari number 1
make vettel fight him! give him a chance to regain his confidence! i think the team orders do more harm than good in these situations

if vettel is owned by leclerc over the course of the year...i wouldn't be surprised if vettel retires...

When they told him to let Vettel past, Vettel was the faster driver. turned out he was only a few tenths faster and had a bit of trouble when he finally got in the free air but it wasn't a terrible call to make.
The problem isn't that they let Vettel be a few tenths quicker it's the strategy that they gave Charles afterwards which saw him lose many, many positions... one position. He lost a whole position.
But of course it's been open season on Vettel since I can't even remember when so no one is really bothered about that. I think people were too naive to think that Leclerc would come in and clean Vettel's clock or even be allowed to clean Vettel's clock. #Shouldvekeptkimi
