I think at the front it's difficult to see anything other than Mercedes disappearing over the horizon. The best we can hope for is a midfield battle I think. Disappointed in Ferrari who don't appear to have made any progress for all the upgrades they've bought, but well done to Merc for steamrollering on

If Vettel can make it into second place it might change for a bit!

they apparently brought the most radical updates of anyone and completely changed their aero philosophy. Doesn't look to have made much of an impact so far but I can only assume they see more long-term potential in it

Pit stop strategies as per Pirelli:

(Quickest strategy) Two-stopper:
Start on the soft tyre for 22 laps, do another soft stint for 23 laps, then medium to the end.

Fastest one-stopper:
Start on the soft tyre for 27 laps (managing it carefully) and then switch to the hard until the finish.

Optional strategy:
Start on the medium for 30 laps, then switch to the hard for the final 36 laps.

If Hamilton gets the same kind of start as in Baku I think it might be elbows out this time?

Max vs the ferraris could be interesting. Hopefully the mercs can give a decent show between them throughout the race. But I am not too hopeful. Everything points to a borefest.

That was Rosberg but let's not derail things. :)

Well so far this season the second placed car has started better every time.

That's actually quite interesting and odd.

As Bottas was ahead all the time, I wonder what he would do differently. He would be wrong to push Bottas wide, and would get a punishment if Charlie Whiting was right when he "clarified" this a few years ago.
I hope they both keep their racing as it should be; no contact and no running somebody off the track.

I'd say idiotic from them not to report the change of the wing in accordance to the park ferme regs. Shot themselves on the foot there. Hulk must be fuming

And Hulk is now taking a new PU as there's no penalty with him already in the pit lane.

Starting from pole in this race seems to be a huge disadvantage because of the long run to T1, I fear Bottas will have to have a better start than Lewis and Vettel to keep P1.

I think it's adding another one to the pool, so when he changes the PU next time, there won't be a penalty.

Tactical error from RIC making it into the top 10 during Q. The 3 place grid drop sees him surrounded by competitors with a free choice of fresh tyres. Expecting him to go backwards quickly.

Disaster for the other Renault too, starting from the pitlane.

Hamilton was fully alongside Bottas any other driver and he wouldn't have been so concerned about the them having to back off for the barrier.

Not sure that's something to be proud of, tbh. Forcing a situation where the other driver has to decide to quit or crash is not something I'd recommend

It's what drivers do when they have got position for the corner, the start was as predicted, better to start second and Hamilton got his elbows out.

Bottas needs to chase Hamilton all the way to the finish if he wants the belief that he can beat Hamilton to this title.
