  1. Vettel was like “Hang on guys, I want the podium to be a clean sweep of WDC winners!”

    3 WDCs on the podium with 8 titles between them!

  2. Great for vettel, who was it again who said he wouldn’t make it past the redbulls?

    1. if redbull gave the same strategy to Ricciardo as they did to Verstappen, then Ricciardo would have won the race, and Vettel would have finished 4th

      1. The difference was made on track, Verstappen did a massive comeback once more

        1. Funny thing is that if Red Bull went with Max’s aggressive strategy from the start as plan A, rather than as a response to his spin, both Red Bull’s coukd have done some serious damage today..

        2. I am guessing that you are joking here to stir up the masses? That was pure luck from Max, not skill.

          But it did leave me questioning why they didn’t go long with Daniel on the first stint as well. If they had done that, he would have had a clear and easy 3rd place and maybe could have gotten past Rosberg as well. One driver won out big time there on strategy and the other got screwed.

          Ironically, Raikonnen was faster that Seb in both qualifying and in the race. The same goes for Ricciardo and Max. But both finished behind their team mates. And those 2 team mates are now collecting the applause for a job well done. If I was Kimi or Dan today, I would be very frustrated with how that one turned out. Maybe the saying is true. “Nice guys finish last”.

  3. All the hype about about Hamilton backing up Rosberg – so why didn’t,t champion elect just st overtake him?

  4. Felipe is faster than you.
