I have to say though, I was on the edge of my seat for the last 20 odd laps so oodles of overtakes do not make a great race.
Very weird for lewis, because as i put above normally his mental state or car that lets him down but he as just not had the pace all weekend & as final sector has been his nemasis all weekend. Grosjean was completely at fault for me as he was never going to make the move on palmer stick. He already had all 4 wheels on the kerb when he tapped palmer to spin him around to then ram grosjean
Also interesting fact i worked out that providing its 20 race season in 2018 russian gp could be venue for the 1000th gp. As will be the 4th gp of 2019
That will not be his last victory and I think that has reduced Alonso's chances of landing a Mercedes drive significantly for 2018.
Suddenly Mercedes have a real problem to think about managing both drivers challenging for the title against Vettel now
If Hamilton keeps on losing 0.6 seconds per lap then there will be no problem. However that does seem rather unlikely.
But the thing that does concern me is that Verstappen was in fifth place 60 seconds behind; that is roughly 1.2 seconds per lap. Making that gap up will take some very hard work indeed and this is Red Bull who are one of the richest teams in the field. The rest stand no chance whatsoever.
Congratulations to Bottas on a well earned maiden victory, he had the drive to go into the lead at the start then built on it steadily bit by bit. He held on to the finish, making one minor error in the whole race. I am sure that there are more to come.
Barry Manilow is a big fan

F1Brits_90 priority list.
Official results are in and there was 1 overtake! Wherlein passed Ericsson on lap 5. Certainly my highlight of the race.
I was born in 1990. So might have got it confused.
Wasnt barry manilow the original version of her name is rio & she dances on the sand" That the fans renamed "his name is rio & hes beached it in the sand" or have i got confused with copacobana
Or is it neither
