  1. A nice grand chelem for Max in the weekend he secured his third championship.
    Nice to see once again a full orange podium.

  2. I can imagine that the powers that be within F1 are currently thinking:

    “Hmmmm… five races with a compulsory number of pitstops in 2024?”

  3. Well, if anyone doubted McLaren would take P4 in constructors from Aston, then this is what we should expect for the rest of the season. It’s not in question any more – they should be in front by next weekend with 4 races to spare.

    1. They have a realistic shot at P3 if they keep up this form.

      1. @krommenaas Maybe an outside shot, but they’d need a lot of things to go their way. They have 79 points to make up in 5 weekends, so basically need 16 points over Ferrari each weekend. If Max holds his monopoly on P1, then even with a double podium McLaren would be gaining 33 points a weekend, meaning Ferrari would have to score on average under 17 points – a fifth and a sixth would be enough for them (ignoring a few extra points available for the two sprints). I can see that happening a couple more times, but averaging that strike rate would be tough. Maybe with a race win and/or a couple of Ferrari retirements they could get there.

  4. BTW – great to see the young guns coming out tops.

  5. And to think Mclaren has only been competitive for 9 races.
    They would easily be best of the rest if their start wasn’t so bad.

    Just shows how utterly incompetent Ferrari and Mercedes are.

    1. It also shows what a team can achieve when they have two competitive drivers (even though I did not agree with the team orders preventing Norris challenging Piastri). Can you imagine what either McLaren driver would be achieving in the RB19? Or indeed how much further clear of McLaren Aston Martin would be if Vettel hadn’t retired and was alongside Alonso?

  6. I would love to see how many points were gained by each driver/team with this race. Seeing the totals doesn’t help me tell how much the changed.
