This probably isn’t the place for this discussion but with Miami getting a race next year the discussion of which races have to to go to accommodate any new ones is ever present. There are others that should go before Spain but that was like watching paint dry.
Unfortunately there is no incentive to improve the track which lends to boring races even with the DRS.
F1Brits_90 Button did avoid the 2017 Williams drive with a bargepole when he convinced himself they were not front runners. Seeing Williams slower than the Sauber at Barcelona could mean they've got big problems coming up at Monaco and Hungary tracks where chassis is more important than power
I predicted this season could be very painful for Williams and with the surprise improvement of Sauber, it might well be.
I wonder when there will be pressure to race Kubica because they are last in the constructors
Bit harsh to give Grosjean a penalty, I thought?
I understand why Ferrari pitted Vettel under the VSC, but I don't understand why they gave him another set of Medium tyres rather than something softer to attack with.
Pirelli are mostly getting away with little criticism despite failing yet again to prevent another one-stop race. I'm frustrated, this could be so much better.
Lewis it was a brilliant drive. The victory was never in doubt proof as he was invisible on tv. Nobody has an answer to his pace. But i guess not to be unexpected as mercedes love this track apparently yesterday was 4th front row lockout for 5yrs & makes sense that the testing race pace was correct of 7 tenths advantange was track specific. I am really confused at ferrari what on earth Vettel strategy was. As i mentioned above catalunya is like hungary where track position is better than pace. Why would you pit give it up & also why would pit for mediums there is no advantage never going to overtake on the mediums, surely you go for softs like perez for Mechanical advantange
Also well done to Leclerc. He seemingly got to grips with f1 now as that 2 grand prixs he has hammered his teammate & well done to Verstappen taken to spain but he has finally had a clean race
Galahad maybe harsh espically it was just 1 of those things. Nobodys fault, but i think he on board didnt help. As instead of letting it go. He was holding quite hard onto full lock, to get back on the track which is fine on lap 2 - 66. But lap 1 when you have 10 cars charging behind. Was irresponsible, hulkenburg & gasly were now out. no fault of their own
It'll be a boost for McLaren as they try to hang on to 5th in the constructors' championship.
Daniel had fastest lap in this race
This is two comical errors from Grosjean in successive races and seriously he has not scored a point and his chances of getting a Ferrari drive if they were slim to begin looks absolutely remote now and his F1 career could be in jeopardy as I look down the grid his only real choices are Renault if they want a French driver , Williams who are at the back anyway or with Haas who look like they will be in the midfield teams mix now
