Lewis is definitely a better driver than Nico, but he's also a complete *** cannot stand the guy so was glad Nico won it

In the 3 years they've competed at Merc., I cannot recall one race win where he passed Lewis on track...!

Yeah, mental.

He obviosuly can't handle the stress of Hamilton's competitiveness (he keeps going on about it in interviews and stuff).

Hes given mercedes a proper middle finger. all the top drivers under contract. Although does make you wonder if he has done them a favour for next year.

I wonder if Merc will make serious moves to try to poach Max!

That would be explosive: Max and Lewis, teammates!*


* Assuming next year's car turns out still competitive, of course.

I cant see max leaving red bull. Does let Hamilton off the hook for his actions in his last race. They arn't going to penalise there only driver.

Wonder if they would take on button for a year till alonso's contract expires?

I can imagine the disillusioned Alonso himself chomping at the bit at the opportunity - It wouldn't surprise me if he tries to set the wheels in motion...!

If Merc want any driver badly, they'll just buy em out of their contract from the existing team, it's been done before. Anyone offered a seat at merc with their existing contract dealt with would jump at the chance, although redbull seem to be touted as the goto team for 2017 with the new regulation changes at the moment.

Double bonus when Vettel's tyre puncture. My heart bleeds. Karma.

Now just 1pt behind with half the races left. Plus, Merc gets stronger as each meet goes by. The engine has the power, and the chassis now seems to switch the tyres on better.

And Hamilton pulling out these amazing Q3 pole laps... It's looking good for him.

C'mon Lewis! lol

Even more richly deserved because he's plainly not finished with banging wheels when the fancy takes him. He physically forced Verstappen off track, and then when Verstappen repayed the compliment Vettel drove off track to avoid him. The bloke needs to sort out his attitude and drive like a 4 time champ.
Bottas did well I thought.
C'mon Lewis

Yeah, Ham has to be looking over BOTH shoulders. Could be a cracking run to the line, from here on in.

Yea looking good for lewis, Hungary next, which is usually a good circuit for him too, hopefully he'll be leading the championship into the summer break.

Why? i know he can be a bit of a **** sometimes, but overall he's inspiring in what he has achieved and you can't deny his raw talent.

Vettel's gone mental. He's been kicking off again about Max's pass on him.

...Hold on, Seb did exactly the same thing to Max on the entry to that complex......first!

What is the Teutonic curmudgeon on. The crank.

I like Vettel but he is a proper bitch when it doesn't go right for him, like you say it's all fair when he does it but when someone does it back to him, suddenly they are driving like idiots and should be punished!! No Vettel, that's not how it works mate!!
