  1. Definitely think Manor can get a point or two given how good they were today.

    1. Yeah, apart from Ericsson again showing he can defend his spot, that Manor really was in the race. Wehrlein seems to be taking over the mantle of Bianchi very well.

      Shame they need a driver like Haryanto to pay the bills, I would love to have an other good driver there.

      1. While watching that it was quite sad to think it could’ve been Jules doing that, nevertheless it’s really nice for them to see that they’ve found a new talent.

        1. agree on both accounts there @strontium. Imagine Jules having fun in the Haas car not far off Grosjean for example

        2. @strontium Jules wouldn’t be doing that as he would be in a Ferrari instead of Kimi.

  2. At least Vandoorne can get some points.

    1. More points than Button and Alonso combined, that’s pretty good if you ask me.

      1. He has 100 times more points than Button and Alonso combined :P

        1. Or, I should say “more than 100 times more points”…

          1. 1/0 = infinity ;)

  3. Ferrari drivers’ dragging… Nico vs Ham is only hope.

    1. Not F drivers dragging, the cars failed x2.

  4. Impressed by Nico. 5 consecutive race wins now after Hamilton won his championship. Irrespective of whether Nico wins this time or not, he is doing a fine job of keeping Lewis honest and not letting his reputation fall down.

    1. Hamilton is showing complacency while Rosberg is improving slowly but all the time. This Rosberg advantage stretches back further than Austin.

      1. Its now or never for Rosberg.

  5. If you would have told me last year Grosjean would be 5th in the standings after two races, I would have laughed at you.

    What a great opening of the season for him and Haas!

  6. @keithcollantine Wonder if Alonso is unclassified or is it a typo?

    1. Gutierrez is also missing.

    2. @spoutnik @ialtair Alonso hasn’t been classified in a race yet. (Nor has Gutierrez, @slowhands)

  7. If Haas continues to win 9 points per race on average, they will match McLaren’s points tally in 2015 next race.

    Grosjean ahead of Vettel is simply mindblowing.

  8. Neither Alonso nor Gutierrez in list of drivers….

    1. @slowhands because they have not been classified…yet.

  9. Where is Fernando Alonso in the standing?

  10. Herbert: You’re not retiring?
    Alonso: No, I’m a world champion. You ended up as a commentator because you weren’t champion.
    Alonso walks away.
    Herbert shouts after him: Yeah, well at least I have more race wins than you do championships so there!

    The on air personalities at Sky really try to create things were nothing exists. Their analyses really have become meaningless as a result.
