    1. Surely that must be the end of Latifi in F1, the utter waste of racing room.

      Well done to Nick de Vries – fantastic drive.

    2. The ‘classic championship’ standings, only including the races at the ‘classic tracks’: Monaco, Silverstone, Spa-Francorchamps and Monza, with Suzuka and Interlagos still to come:

      1 Max Verstappen 72

      4 Charles Leclerc 50

      20th Nyck de Vries 2pts
      21st Nicholas Latifi 0pts

      Not a great look for Nicholas. Nyck very much deserved those points as well, a storming drive, very well deserved.

    4. Latifi is still the only regular driver without a single point.

    5. If I’m calculating it correctly, Verstappen should clinch the title in Singapore if he wins and Leclerc finishes no better than 9th, AND Pérez finishes no better than 5th.

        Yes that is correct, Max can be mathematically champion by the end of Singapore, to do so he must be 138 points ahead (5 wins, 5 FLAP and 1 sprint race win), he is currently 116 ahead of Leclerc and 125 ahead of Perez.

        So to win the DWC in Singapore Max must win and Leclerc 9th or lower (8th or lower if Max takes FLAP) and Perez 4th or lower.

        More likely is that wins WDC in Japan as after Japan only 112 points available meaning that Leclerc/Perez must gain points on Max in Singapore and/or Japan.

      3. Hamilton is now too far behind to win the WDC, but he is guaranteed to finish ahead of Nyck ;)

      4. Crazy idea: RB voluntarily takes grid penalties on VER car for Singapore race.
        They would do that to save VER from the problems on the first lap.
        Given the RB/VER performance, even in SIngapore, he could find his place back to the podium.
        On current conditions, the only thing preventing a VER podium is a first lap crash.
        The first turn would be a knife fight between LEC/SAI/HAM/PER/RUS – someone got to give and maybe not even finish the first lap.
        VER wiliingly takes grid penalties, wait to see what happens after the start, by lap 2 he would be between 7th-10th (exxageration), by lap 20 he is 5th (business as usual), and then was a fair cruise waiting to benefit from Ferrari mistakes and the almost certain red/yellow flags during the race.
        Worst case, he keeps his advantage and goes to Japan to win with Honda.

      Lewis is mathematically out of the Championship race, 167 behind with 164 max to score.

      1. (Irony mode on): this is how impactful Tsunoda shenenigans were.

      2. Best piece of news in a sesquidecade

    7. Nick de Vries. An emergency stand in at the last moment, for a single race, now has a 1/3rd of Williams total points for the season.

      Unless Latifi is giving Williams 20+million a year, he needs to go.

      1. Ahem, probably is
        (I really don’t know, but it would be the only explanation)

      2. What stops him from finding that money, with a father with 3 billions? The only way to get rid of him is if williams decide on performance over money, like mclaren did.
