Renault really need to rethink their sail-powered car.

This would account for the slow times in the free practice sessions and the early part of the race against Hamilton's performance in qualifying and not only being overtaken at the start but also being outpaced by so much during the opening laps.
Now I'm sure it's total BS, but hey scurrilious rumours are fun!
Hamilton has been excellent this year and he's driving more maturely than Vettel. However, the Mercedes has been the stronger car throughout the season.
Bottas on the other hand, he needs to up his game pronto or else he might find himself at Williams next season. His performances have been abysmal since the summer break.
On a side note, Gasly did really well, considering that his drink system failed during the race.
... and he had a bad back.
I heard Williams were offered free Merc engines if one of their drivers totalled Vettels Ferrari for the next race. They waited until they'd scored points and then did it to get best of both worlds. True fact.
The funny thing is that Kravitz said that Raikkonen had the same issue as Vettel did on Saturday, because of which Raikkonen didn't start... sooo yeah...
It's a fun theory but a load of cobblers.
Unlike my Williams/Merc sabotage theory which is of course correct
Wouldn't it be awesome of this turned out to be true? I wouldn't even be upset, I would admire that kind of cunning. I wish they would go back to letting teams have a spare car for times like this when Kimi could have started the race.
