If the Ferraris crash into each other the race might be more interesting.

I'm dumbfounded why Vettel is not being let by given what happened earlier?

yeah me neither. He would have been better putting on a set of Mediums or Hards and cruising to the end


I think RB were expecting BOTH Ferraris to two stop, can SV get to the end I wonder?

I think Vettel is entitled to be a little irritated, tbh. He pulled over for Leclerc but Leclerc is defending strongly.

Vettel doesn't need to change again?

Right. This race has been appalling managed by Ferrari's management. LeClerc has been given an overtake on Vettel eariler in the race, so he can't exactly complain about being told to do the same.

Nevermind the racing, Crofty's ridiculous suggestions is the most annoying part of F1 these days. Ban team orders. Get rid of blue flags. Both absurd ideas that are just as bad as the qualifying fiasco in Australia a few years ago. If you're going to suggest those ideas, at least give them some thought instead of giving a knee jerk reaction from something you don't like.

Bottas wants to chase down Hamilton who is cruising but that would destroy Bottas' tyres and he would have to stop again, give it up Bottas you're not catching Hamilton.

Ferrari decision making is just awful. They take too long to make their calls.

Whilst obviously not having the pace to race Mercedes.... just what the hell are Ferrari playing at today? It's gone past incompetence and well into the territory of farce.

When Verstappen pits then both the Mercs can pit again if they wish

Vettel pits, aaaand...now he has to pass Gasly.
Nothing works for Ferrari today.

edit: He solved that quicky.

Sad thing here is I was going to get tickets and go to the Canadian grand prix.

But if I'm going to nap I would rather do it for free at home.

Was thinking a safety car was the only reason they'd pit Bottas first and however unlikely that would happen it did! If they went with the norm Bottas would be leading.

It's absurd how long it takes the cars to bunch up behind the safety car.

Ferrari's stupidity of not letting Vettel go comes back to bite them now as Vettel could have been back in third now with the safety car!

Not much luck in having a safety car when your drivers are clear out in front?

That's what I'm thinking, especially for Ham, he has lost all his lead. Some suggest he's lucky :?

No passing even with a safety car restart.
