s*** race but Hamilton is up there with the most gifted sports people of all time. Absolutely untouchable.

Wouldn’t be surprised if he gets one of his earliest ever title wins this year. In the last couple of seasons Ferrari have kept pace until the summer break (before Ham goes on the dominate after the break) but they’re not even doing that now.
I dunno, Bottas looks a lot closer so far this year. But Mercedes do look safely out front right now. Disappointing that Red Bull and Ferrari are so far behind - not helped by Ferrari’s consistently dodgy strategy calls.

Bottas hasn’t been far away but he’s just not ruthless enough (even with his new beard).
I'm the scumbag outlaw. You're the pillar of justice. Neither of us like looking at ourselves in the mirror. Do we have a deal?

It will be a Bottas Hammy fight at this rate. The Ferrari car is just not as competitive currently plus Seb is making mistakes and Le Clerc is getting bad calls from his team. Red Bull vs Ferrari may be the more interesting fight this season

Yeah, for most of the race we didn’t see any footage of the Mercs as there’s no point watching them easily pull away at the front.

There has been good racing in the middle of the pack for the first couple of races but very little today.
