When will there be consistency when track limits are applied? It's very hit and miss.

Yeah, some corners on some circuits literally every driver goes four wheels outside the track limits. Either enforce it or don't.

Also, Verstappen punished for a bold racing move yet Kimi is allowed to slow down to let a slower teammate pass.

Weren't they planning on alternating drivers for the final few races anyway? So Kvyatt might come back for Brazil or Abu Dhabi.

They've said he's not coming back this time.

The Torpedo is no more in F1.

I can't see him getting another seat on the grid.

Verstappen was untouchable.

What an achievement for Hamilton, Britain's first ever for time world champion. I've been a fan of his since day 1, I don't care what he gets up to off the track, he's one of the fastest F1 drivers ever.

Seb certainly didn't give Hammy much room at the start and it ruined his championship aspirations so that was justice. I enjoyed seeing them both working through the field, action at the front was pretty dire.

Great achievement by Lewis, can see him getting at least another WC in his career.

Mercedes must be focussed on getting Bottas to 2nd in the WC now - looking forward to seeing how they do it in the next two races

Yeah you'd fancy Hamilton to get one or two more really.

I think that the title was always going to be decided this weekend, but didn't think that it would finish that way.

Looks like a wet weekend is on the cards for the Brazilian GP. Usually get entertaining races here, more of an old school circuit. Wonder if Merc will try and play it for Bottas to try and get p2 in the Championship?

I hope they do but Vettel would just ram into him and secure second.

Very rare mistake for Ham but will still finish in the points. Ferrari should be strong in the race.

The last race victory for Massa was the Brazilian GP in 2008 when he was world champion for about 15 seconds.

Not the best race yesterday, I thought that the performance of Hamilton and Ricciardo moving through the field masked quite a dull race.

Vettel was comfortable from when he came out of the pits ahead of Bottas. Raikkonen wasn't moving from p3. Massa and Alonso had a battle but it was really just Alonso following Massa for about 60 laps to keep DRS.

Bottas testing the halo in FP1, looks f***ing awful. Considering the safety of F1 over the past 20+ years it's completely unnecessary.
