Still, should be better than Abu Dhabi will be.
True.

Even the sham of double points didn't make it any better.

It was mildly entertaining the year that Rosberg won it just becasue Ham was driving so slowly to block the rest of the pack to try and force Rosberg into a mistake or hope that a few cars could overtake him. Other than that can't remember anything of interest ever happening there.

Enjoyed the race. Plenty action with it being a short lap

Yeah just seen it and was a good race. Shame for Max who would have won had it not been for Ocon being an absolute bellend.

Regardless of whether Ocon should have fought for track position, which was his right, it was f***ing stupid from Max. So much to lose and nothing to gain, he should have just let him pass and carried on racing Hamilton.

Agree. Max cut him up on the corner needlessly

Ocon was 3/4 off the track into that corner but Max cut in far too much and caused his own issues.

He'll learn.

I’m on Max’s side on this one, yeah he didn’t have to do it there or take the racing line again so quickly but he had every right to expect that ocon would back out of it.

How on earth the driver has survived that is beyond me.

Testament to the safety aspects designed into the car!

Yeah amazing that nobody was killed, lucky in a way to hit that structure that had some give in it rather than the lamppost...

Yeah amazing that the driver survived. Incredible the safety these days. But you have to ask questions about how a car can get that airborne. Didn't they adjust the designs of F1 cars after Mark Webber had a similar one?

I think that there will always be freak incidents, you can’t design against every kind of eventuality and type of contact when high speeds are involved. From what I read it wasn’t the kerb that launched the car, it was earlier contact. The height the car traveled through the air was shocking but we don’t see that kind of thing often.

Will give that a read later.

What I will say is that Alonso has been the architect of much of his own downfall. Even his move to IndyCar isn’t entirely his own choice, no other teams want to take him on for various reasons. Of course two world championships is great but he could and should have had at least as many as Vettel.

Anybody see the Billy Monger documentary last night? I thought it was brilliant.
