I thought another good racing weekend and race.Did not understand hamilton's 2 - 5 point penalties served at the pit stop then another matey gets one it's tagged on the end of race.I get the impression the organizers like to slow hamilton down a bit

Ok race.. Not a lot to it but some good mid-field action and Verstappen kept himself clean and got some good points up front. A good track for the Renault and they took advantage of that. Nice to see.

Tracing Point proving once more that they are sacking the wrong driver.

Hamilton got what he deserved and needs to stop whining about it. I am glad they rescinded the points on his license but the race penalties were fair and Merc knew it. Hamilton should know it too, if he spends as much time with his nose in the rule book as he claims. Looks like he will be re-signing with Merc. No surprise there of course, but I do wish Merc would get bored and go do something else.

...and Honda are out of F1 again. Why do they do this? They have been getting closer and closer to the front of the grid. Hopefully whoever buys those assets from Honda repeats the BrawnGP trick.

Red Bull with a Renault engine. It doesn't get much more beautiful than that does it.

Wondering if Red Bull could/would buy out the Honda project. Wouldn't mind seeing Mugen back on the grid That said, I see the Red Bull quit threats are back again. Never know though... They just might do it this time.

Meh, let them go. Horner's gone from being this likable, honest chap to a bit of a weird bully, protecting Verstappen at all costs and almost promoting his awful attitude and behaviour.

Teams come and go, apart from Ferrari.

The days of F1 affording to let teams go are gone, and with the new (gratuitous, self-serving) $200.000.000 payout for any incoming venture, I don't see us getting any new ones right now.

If Red Bull walk, and take Alfa Tauri with them, that only leaves 8. And three of those belong to Ferarri.

F1 might be able to attract more engine manufacturers by standardising more "power unit" parts to reduce development costs.

Let's hope we get some good wet weather racing this weekend.

Stroll is pulling a sicky, looks like Hulk may be asked to step in for his home GP.

What the hell was the full safety car about near the end?

A virtual safety car would have been sufficient.

No idea. Seeing a bit of Nascar "closing up the field" creeping in maybe. Gotta make it interesting somehow I guess. Maybe Bernie was right... Sprinklers.

F1 isn't a meritocracy, that said I'd have thought Mercedes would kick up a fuss as they supply the engines to Williams and this is tied in with that. There isn't anyone else to fill seats in the Mercedes young drivers development program that is nearly as promising and at this point Mercedes needs to look towards a post-Hamilton driver lineup.

Where did you hear it was Perez? I heard it was Mazepin.
