    Outstanding and exciting performance from Lewis today, and hopefully that will continue for the race tomorrow.

    Since the Merc has obviously regained its overwhelming superiority over all of the other teams (for the 4th straight year), all his pole shows is that he is faster than Bottas (who has allegedly been told he is the number 2 driver).

    Does Ferrari failing to deliver for Vettel give a little comfort to Alonso?

    The Mercedes era isn’t over and it’s a shame that Rosberg isn’t racing anymore. Bottas isn’t competitive and if his currrent form continues until the end of the season, Mercedes might consider other options.
    Ferrari could fall behind Red Bull, because Red Bull has been in fantastic shape since the summer break.

    Lewis had some trouble on the last laps.
    And Alonso with Massa helped to him to win

    Sergio Perez was not a happy boy today, was he? Being made to hold position behind Ocon led to some "interesting" radio communication.

    Alonso given 2 points on his licence for ignoring blue flags and Vettel given a non-driving reprimand for not attending the National Anthem.

    Massa and Alonso ruined the end of that race.

    Because if you leave a team because it keeps failing you, then your replacement goes out and wins a Championship, it would be extremely frustrating. But if that team fails your replacement, just like it failed you, then you can feel a little better about your decision to leave.

    How many race wins have the two achieved since Alonso did one from Ferrari?

    Alonso would give his right arm to be in Vettel's position. But he's not because he's a turncoat guttersnipe weasel fantasist.

    An important win for Lewis today. A win that gives him a chance to securing his forth WDC.

    It looked that way, but Max said it wasn't the case, that though he could see Lewis had some issues at the end he wouldn't have been able to pass him and the lapped cars didn't really make a difference.

    Probably not, but it’d have been nice to find out rather than get Alonso to put a block in. Verstappen shouldn’t lose a second lapping.

    I can see why you can come to that conclusion but I have to respectfully disagree. Whether his car was the best or not does not take away from how technically brilliant Hamilton drove on his pole lap. On board footage is awesome.
