    Toto Wolff and Lewis Hamilton have been telling the media for the last two years that they really want the Ferrari's to catch them up and compete with them. Due to this I was a bit surprised at the really long faces after today. ;)

    Shhh stop talking about that! That's not the story the public wants to hear and the press wants to tell. Ricciardo is obviously being out done by his young superstar team mate so they have lots of column inches to write about him leaving 'under a cloud' for silly season. Whilst your at it Don't mention Bottas out qualifying Lewis for 2ND race running. It's already been decided he'll be destroyed by Hamilton this year and will go back to Williams next year. Or that Massa is on brilliant form this year - he's old and past it and Stroll not beating a man with over a decades more F1 experience than him shows he's just a rich kid with no talent.

    olegg - So there's quite a wedge of performance that Mercedes left out there somewhere today.

    They won't be allowed that any more.

    olegg and teabagyokel the interesting bits are that Bottas' fastest lap was in Q2 and:

    "Team boss Toto Wolff pointed out that had Bottas got all his best sectors in one lap, he would have been on pole. But he didn’t...."

    Just shows that Mercedes are still on top.:whistle:

    Personally, I'm just loving the difference between 'on top' and 'so far in front they could leave half a second on track and still be on pole'.

    Really happy for VB but that was one of the worst races I have ever seen in 30 years of F1.

    Zero overtakes?
    Please can we purge the street tracks and fix the cars for next year.

    Massa congratulated Bottas then put a handful of notes into his pocket.

    The Artist..... Alonso said he won't make a decision until the summer so I guess the mid season break he will have decided if he wants to stay or go. Well it is all heading one way and Renault are the only team attractive enough for him seeing Mercedes probably now want to extend Bottas' stay

    The Renault so far is faster than Force Indias over 1 lap but appears to fall behind in race pace so is it down to Hulkenberg or the characteristics of the Renault car being very hard on its tyres?

    I think Bottas actually stole the race from Ferrari .. I was expecting Vettel to run away from the start but Bottas got track position and beat the Ferraris. This was a race Mercedes should not have won

    I watched it on record, kept my interest to the end so not bad at all even if there weren't many overtakes.
