thanks for all the news!

Quali was something else today, especially Q3. I feel really bad for Kimi, because he was on point for pole and he would've gotten pole had he had enough fuel to drive more laps .

Amazing qualifying, especially near the end. It was a shame for Kimi.

Well done to Force India, or whatever they are called.

Did they not fuel him enough because of strategy and they thought they can at least put fuel on him later but then the rain came and then there wasn't enough time so he wasn't able to go out again? I feel like if he came out again, he would've been pole or P2.

Congrats to Lewis, Seb but most especially Ocon on P3. I'm lukewarm for the race later because if Lewis wins again, this season is over.

I'm sure Kimi would have been on the front row if he had come out again.

Vettel won. Poor Raikkonen and Alonso.

Force India did well.

They did not fuel him enough because of strategy. They changed to inters when it started raining and made him go back out right away (unlike Sebastian) and then it stopped raining, so they pulled him back and he wasn't able to go out again because they only put in enough fuel for the laps they thought they would need. Same happened to the boys at RBR.

Wow, what a race. Especially the beginning. Sad that Daniel & Kimi suffered so much damage and that they both eventually had to retire their cars.

Super happy for Max getting that P3 though! Orange pride and all that

Thanks. That's a bummer and I think the rain also contributed to the chaos.

Congrats to Seb, Lewis & Max. The start of the race was truly eventful but the rest of it was boring. That 1st lap incident with Charles & Alonso was really scary. There's an on-going debate now about the halo and replays show Alonso's tire bouncing off that halo and that's why there are skid marks. It makes me wonder what that tire could've hit without the halo. I'll never say a bad word about it anymore.

same here, Lindsay turns out it really is necessary and helpful. thank goodness Alonso didn't get hurt.

the race sure was boring but I'm glad about the result not Kimi's though

Lewis is still leading by 17 points which is a lot so the Ferrari can't afford any mistakes again

I never notice the halo so I didn't have an opinion about it.

I'm looking forward to Monza next week.

Lewis wasn't happy. Don't understand why because his lead is still considerable

Charles' halo suffered so much damage, I truly don't want to know what would have happened if the car didn't have one, yikes.

I'm glad no one was hurt, they kept replaying the crash and I got so anxious every time they showed it.

Yep, that's Lewis for you
