    Surprised the Haas didn’t switch at the end there for the sake of the best of the rest drivers battle

      At second glance Hulk has smashed it anyway

    2. @fullcoursecaution – given the temperament of the drivers, Mr. Steiner would have felt that riskier than Maldonado and Vettel going wheel to wheel. He smartly elected to safely collect the constructor points irrespective of which driver brought in more. Constructor points are money, after all :-)

    Update; Ocon will be driving a Mercedes SUV on his sabbatical.

  3. To me, this result proves why Mercedes need to look at other options for their second seat. Too often Bottas goes missing compared to Hamilton. He fell from second right back down the field and struggled for grip for the whole race. You could argue he played the perfect team game and held everyone (except Verstappen) back so that Hamilton could develop a gap; but to me he should be closer. It’s happened multiple times this year.

    A very good race by Leclerc and unlucky for Ericsson in the end. Some very questionable driving from Ocon, but I agree with Hamilton in that Verstappen had more to lose so perhaps should have been a little more careful.

    1. @ben-n – didn’t you see Ocon submitting his resume at the Senna esses? :-)

    2. Poor Ericsson can’t get a break. Felt really sorry for him from the moment he had the issue on the way to the grid.
      Really hope IndyCar works wonders for him.
