  1. Cor, what a race from Verstappen. Bit too ambitious at times, still a bit rushed, but what audacity, such pace. What a performance. Once he gets that edge of maturity, that final move on Raikkonen sticks. Incredible potential.

    1. I don’t really agree with that. In my opinion, he had nailed the start but never progressed further during the race. If he were to finish in a ‘spectacular’ position, he should’ve joined Kvyat up to around fifth, not 3 places behind Massa

  2. Damn it Vettel.

    1. How was that Vettel’s fault?

    2. It wasn’t.

      1. So why imply it?

        1. I didn’t read it as that. It sounded (read) as a “shame for him”.

          1. How? “Damn, what a shame for Vettel” is entirely different to “Damn it Vettel”.

            “Damn it Ferrari” is actually what I said 10 laps before it happened. Because they should have pitted him. He would have easily been third.

          2. In British English, “Damn it” is quite commonly used as a non fault expression of disapointment. I too read it as “Shame for him”

    3. So Kimi still hasn’t been beaten at Spa by a teammate (I was almost certain it would end today. Couldn’t believe it when the tyre exploded)

  3. Another dissapointing GP for RAI and BOT fan. Nevertheless, what a mega job by Grosjean. I don’t like him and I don’t like the team anymore, but it’s always refreshing to see underdogs on podium

    1. Yeah..as a Finn, the last few races have been a bit depressing, haven’t they..

    2. @huhhii How on earth can you not like Grosjean?

      1. @insilico Korea 2013 and his bittersweet cry to team radio when Kimi beat him fair and square. He sounded like sore loser. Also his accident-prone driving style is another reason. Good thing he has grown up slowly during his time in F1. Still I would’ve prefered for example Perez or STR drivers or Kvyat on podium rather than Grosjean.

  4. Bitter end for the race…

    I’m happy to see Grosjean on the podium, he drove a great race and I think Lotus needed a good result due to their financial problems.
    But somehow I feel Vettel deserved it more, that long second stint was really really good and he was very consistent on his lap times despite the degradation.

    Also expected more from Wiliams and Sauber.

    Anyway things remain the same, Mercedes is still dominating and out of reach, and Rosberg is making it easy for Hamilton to cruise to another WDC.

    1. I can’t add more

  5. Would have preferred to have seen a proper overtake rather than a puncture, but so happy to see Grosjean get another podium! He’s been solid for Lotus but hasn’t always been able to show it as they’ve been down the grid too often in recent years.

  6. I want Michelin back.

    1. No, thanks! It’s best to stay out forever together with their “street ricer relevant” ideas 18” rims!

  7. Don’t forget it was Michelin tyres that failed at the same corner two years in a row resulting in the Indianapolis farce of a race.
    Pirelli are unable to test their tyres and keep asking the FIA for the ability to do so.

  8. Vettel even before the mcLarens …
