F3 race stopped due to rain, if it doesn’t improve a lot then probably no qually today. Next practice session already delayed.

Really decent qually in those conditions, great driving. Hamilton supreme.

Ferrari is still a dog.

Decent race behind Hamilton, from what I saw of the highlights.

I’m a Hamilton fan and all but can’t wait for the new regs and some competitive racing. The Ferrari shitshow is not even that fun any more.

Yeah it got better as it went on, decent final few laps. Walk in the park for Mercedes, shame the new regs aren’t until 2022 though, guarantees Hamilton the title this year and next year.

With Hamilton on the hard compound as well! Could be a tasty race though as they have a decent chance of some rain.

Yeah hopefully, else we’ll be watching the race for third while the Mercs disappear into the distance.

Mercedes clearly going to walk this 'season', hopefully Bottas pushes Hamilton.
