    Räikkönen, I can't see him joining the battle first of all he is too slow in general and secondly Ferrari have proven this season and in the past, that they can only handle the strategy of one car.

    If Barrichello......errrmmm Bottas continues to let Hamilton pass, he won't be joining the battle either. Hamilton had no chance of fighting Vettel, as he was controlling the race from the front and according to his own statements via TR could have increased his pace had it been necessary.
    Mercedes still had to try and thus employ team orders which is a wrong decision, when playing the long game, every point will prove to be valuable.

    Hamilton's penalty was not attached to the pit lane
    but was "driving style", which blocked the other driver.

    In what sense was this the "wrong" decision? From the perspective of Mercedes they did not lose any points by giving the order. (Team orders are unpopular though, and will probably cost them some "goodwill" from the public.) In fact, their driver most likely to challenge for the WDC gained points by it.

    Excuse me for the confusion I have caused, I meant to write:
    "which are not a wrong decision, when playing the long game,......"
    In consideration of this, the final clause makes more sense, I suppose. Therefore, I agree with you that it is more sensible to position the driver who is more likely to win the championship in a more favourable position now rather than later.

    That makes much more sense :)

    Finally got to see the race, really enjoyed it. Great close racing with the top-tier cars over the first half, with enough action and interest to avoid the lull. 7 out of 10. A Vettel victory works for me, and seeing Toto stressing throughout made a nice change – change is afoot, and not a moment too soon.
