Both championships look to be done and dusted. Probably earlier in the season to say that than any year since 2002.

This battle should've been aired instead of Leclerc & Bottas' battle.

Did anyone spray champagne on the podium? Did I blink and miss it? Was I left in a fugue state by this somnolent race? If they didn't spray champagne in France, why the heck not?

I don't know whether they did, but it's a bad habbit. What a waste to spill a fine product.

I told you it would be a boring race.

Even Stevie Wonder could see this coming.

2002 all over again

It wasn't boring for me.

You don't think this race is boring up to this point? Seriously?

I suspect King is speaking for several fans today.

I posted that before the race started, even so no I didn't find it boring, there are many things I take from watching a F1 race, for me it's multi-layered.

No issue there, just good racing. RIC went too deep on entry and was subsequently overtaken again, so no advantage there. He put 4 wheels off on a straight section of track when he was still behind and then Kimi opened the door

He went off the track twice when passing cars, actually forced one driver off the track, for me slam dunk penalty.

Question is after passing around the outside of the bollard, did he have to wait for Magnussen to pass through? FIA has said cars have to take the long route around the bollard but if the trajectory of that route is shorter or faster, it's not Checo's fault.

Before giving the penalty (or not) to Ricciardo, I wonder what the stewards would want to say about Raikkonen cutting the chicane with all four wheels inside of the turn(a la Verstappen at Mexico 2017).

Normally I'd agree with the multi-layered view of F1. Sadly though, today it was one think layer of pretty much nothing for all but a couple of laps, one being the opening one which is entertaining at every circuit.

Last weekend, It was his fault that he wrecked his car and the fact it wasn't great to drive the next day. It is also to do with him that he did worse than Grosjean in the first stint. I'm pretty sure Grosjean passes 1 or 2 quicker cars. And it took him ages to pass the Williams. My point is that I think Mangnussen has been especially poor, and for the reason's i'm giving, I don't think it is the car. But i do think that the car isn't good at the moment yes. Not good enough for points. But both drivers are making the car look worse than it is. And although it really doesn't look like it from the points, I think i could now possibly say that Grosjean has overall had a slightly better season than Magnussen.

I think that if you re-read what was said you would understand the error. I don't believe that Lewis has won 5 WDCs MULTIPLE times...having done it once is quite impressive enough. Ie... He IS a multiple WDC winner and he indeed IS a 5x WDC, but he is NOT a multiple 5x WDC. He has done it just one time. If he wins five more WDCs, then he will be what they said.

What is wrong with saying "X is a multiple - 5 time - champion."

Nothing, actually. Pretty sure that's acceptable language structure.

Just could never have foreseen this through pre-season testing. Sure, I thought Mercedes might have higher to climb because they only had 4 days with their true car concept which distorted the results of testing somewhat but the results so far are stunning. However, Ferrari have not been totally left in the dust and could (should?) have won 2 races.

Re: Invades comment on Lando's McLaren.

I think they were losing hydraulics from a leak, affected DRS, transmission and steering progressively so the car was getting harder to drive as the race wore on. Did well to finish in the end.

A figure is specified so it's not quite equivalent.

Read my post again, please. It may be "acceptable language structure", but it is not a true statement as they said it, Invade.

However, it is not worth further discussion.... I just had found the error funny and heaven knows there was precious little in that race to make one smile or laugh...so I posted it.

You know the race was boring when there are multiple posts about how to correctly write how many times Lewis has won the WDC :?

I'm quite confident that McLaren can continue showing real pace in both qualifying and the race and that they along with Renault can pressure RBR. We can see now that Gasly doesn't have the pace and whilst Verstappen probably makes the car look better than it is, Gasly makes it look worse.

I remember this being mentioned a while back, but can't remember the exact rule: Does the white line count as part of the track, so exceeding track limits would constitute all 4 wheels over the line (meaning the above is juuuust about okay)?

The white line is indeed part of the track, so if I see this correctly, both inside wheels are just - but really only just - on the track.

Not one, but two five second time penalties for Ricciardo so he finishes P11

Harsh but deserved IMO. He really went overboard there at the end. People don't even try stuff like that in video games.
