I'm tempted to start a maths class every Tuesday afternoon guys ;)


Will there be refreshments?

Only for those making progress.

Interesting strategy differences here

Kimi really looking poor out there. He needs to overtake Bottas but can't even stay with him. He's lost his podium for sure now. And I'm not convinced Vettel is in an advantageous position, either. I think he may well end up 3rd now


How would he drop to 3th? Bottas is the only competition, Hamilton has no chance (against Vettel), and even Bottas has an outside chance.

Because Vettel will likely have to stop again, whereas Bottas and Hamilton almost certainly won't. He needs to make up a further two seconds on Lewis in order to get a free stop, but Hamilton's not looking too slow at the moment and is in fact gaining on him. So Vettel has to hope his Softs last a lot longer than they should or he's toast

I'm wondering if Ferrari will try splitting their strategy from here and ask Vettel to push for a 2 stop and try 1 stopping Kimi.

Bottas can stay out for 1 stop, Vettel can't get that big gap against him.

Don't let anything distract you from the fact that a Honda powered car is 14 seconds ahead of Alonso....

I don't think they had a brand new medium set available like Mercedes.

Wondering if they pitted Grosjean just to get him out of Kmag's way? Otherwise they would've just told him to le Kmag through at turn 2.

Mercs are betting on ferrari having wear issues. What merc need is for bottas to put pressure on vettel forcing vettel to chew up the tires

Mixed tyres, unsafe release, mechanics not rushing to pull him back. Take your pick really

Is it not possible to still service the car by pushing it backwards if it hasn't left the pit lane?

Not sure, did Webber do that when his wheel went AWOL?

Mercedes will be happy though, pretty much 2nd and 3rd guaranteed at worst now.

The mechanic will probably be the first to tell people to get on with it, his leg will heal.

Unless he was told to get out then he really shouldn't be.

That's a fair point. Although, I have seen people continue when a man is down, hence my confusion.

Radio was to that effect. I'm amazed anyone had the presence of mind to get on the radio

Did look like it was pulled under the tyre whilst his upper body went over it. But from how he hit the ground, it's a good job the mechanics all wear helmets.

I think that is a bit unrealistic given the heat of the moment. Good call to stop his race in my view.

Gasly P4!!!

STR race pace has been very good so far, going to bag 4th. Can't argue with that, they spanked Macca here.
