    Awesome, Mercedes are going to add another 10 square centimetres of carbon fibre to their car. Well that's me tuning in. I don't want to miss the dust up when they run that in Friday practice.

    I think if Red Bull had had their windtunnel working correctly, because of which they lost two months, and if the Renaults were more reliable the Red Bull would have been a title contender this season.

    Meh, we have no idea as to how Max would have compared to Hamilton and Vettel in Mexico due to the first lap incident. That's like concluding Mercedes had the fastest car in Singapore as took 1st and 3rd place.

    Erm...out on the first out lap in the first session of qualification? Is he trying to spice up the race?

    Mezzer A fine chap if ever there was one. Contributor

    Well, there will be fewer tears about Merc running away with it ...

    The depressing thing is to look at the Q3 times and seeing that it is still a two horse race series.

    If Vettel can get in front of Bottas on the first lap it's race over. Ferrari don't have the same qualie modes as Mercedes for their engines but can match them on race pace and Bottas isn't in the same league as Hamilton when it comes to fighting with Vettel.

    A wet / dry race will sort things out nicely.

    im annoyed at that as i had money on Verstappen & Riccardio to win world championship season. i thought it was red bull year with added aerodynamics but yeah reliability & windtunnels stopped it

    George Russell (current GP3 Champion) said that Lando Norris will probably be moving to Super Formula next season.

    well done to bottas. ive been quite critical of him last few months saying how we havent seen a good performance from him since austria so but that was a great lap to take pole when it looked like vettel had it sown up very uncharacteristic error that makes the race interesting tomorrow. maybe his tires werent up to temperature or track temp of 28c instead of 50+ but very weird mid corner. as Lewis turned it in. car stuck, then half way through it lost control very weird

    & i think we should fine next year, f1 is getting better although bar a few good races we might as well write off this current decade. as we should have 4 way fight at top next year with Ferrari Red Bull Mercedes & based on alonso, red bulls form, Mclaren

    Someone on here said a few weeks ago that Lewis was the most popular driver in Brazil. I didn't argue because I didn't know if it was true or not. After hearing the cheer that went up when he went into the wall I realise that it's not true! :)

    I think Lewis was unlucky and found the track conditions had changed but it is exciting for us and I fully expect him to be 7th by about lap 5.

    I'm cheering Bottas on today as he has had such a kicking from people of late. My head says Vettel win though.

    That Mclaren Honda package is starting to look good Isn't it? Let's hope changing engine supplier doesn't set them back. The Renault is hardly awesome at the moment is it?

    Which isn't unreasonable given his latest performances, is it?

    RasputinLives Bottas has a had kicking because Lewis since summer break has been untouchable & he's fighting the redbulls for 4th.

    I just said he'd had a kicking not that it was right or wrong. I still think he's doing the exact job Merc want him too.

    Edit - I will add though that his kicking is just part of a story that people want to tell at the moment.
