Dislike daddy's boy Mazepin, just looks so wrong in f1. Also glad to see Mr Stroll's team bomb again. Hate money talking.

Mazepin is a total joke, two seasons in F2 and he won two races out of 46, really earned his F1 seat didn't he. And he's got a face that's just begging to be slapped.

Bottas to Alfa next season confirmed, Russell to Merc not yet but just a matter of time surely.

Probably wait until the end of the week so Bottas doesn't have the limelight taken away from him, because the only thing people will care about is Russell once that's announced.

Can't wait to see how he goes next season now.

Back on it today please Lando; been screwed by misfortune, other driver's stupidity (listening Valtterie?) and a bit of misjudgement for the last three races, time to put it right.

Had a great lap in P1 that would've placed him second but deleted for track limits, no matter, the pace is there.

Both him and Daniel had good pace! Actually excited for this sprint to be honest. Also - not upset at Bottas got P1 for the sprint, good little twist to that saga.

Be happy if they finish in the order they start, though unlikely as Merc will get Bottas to move aside, understandably.... whether he does it is another matter. Would give McLaren the second row to themselves tomorrow.

Bottas starts the actual race at the back regardless of how he performs in the sprint due to all the changes to the car though right? 
 

Edit - sorry mate I’ve seen you’ve allowed for that. It will be interesting to see if Hamilton gets by Bottas easy and what pace Bottas does in second.

The race starts are going to be very interesting with the tow that the second row will get and the top 2 obviously not having.  

 Don’t think the race leader will break out to 1.5 seconds within the first lap like Max did last weekend. Hopefully 2nd is within DRS as well when it’s enabled

Wolff has already confirmed that team orders will be used and Bottas won't be allowed to win the race, even as a Hamilton fan (and understanding the logic) that dissapoints me. 

I think that the pace of the Mercedes in Practice and Qualy shows that they are a cut above this weekend and they really need to make it stick as for the most part this calendar year, Red Bull have had their number most times out. 

Hoping that with the Mercedes engine, Danny Ric and Lando can have good weekends too :).

Not. He didn't have a car's width.

I thought that was completely on Verstappen. And it's a good job they brought the halo in or there could have been a serious injury because of his stupidity.

He was naughty with Lewis at the start of the race as well but just managed to be the right side of the line. This time he wasn't.

Lets see what punishment is given out.

The amount of dick measuring since Silverstone has been a joke, Hamilton was silly trying to go around the outside on Lap 1 and Max knew what he was doing pushing him off.

Max was a bit silly trying to go around the outside into Turn 1, and should have backed out but didn't - Lewis knew what he was doing squeezing him into the kerb too.

Don't get me wrong, these are grown men and it's elite motorsport but this amount of dick measuring is just going to cause more and more scenes like today - both of them look like prats. I just get the feeling that this is the start, not the end and every time they get close from now until Abu Dhabi there will be fireworks, fun to watch I suppose but absolutely stupid. Almost as if the Championship will go to who manages to take the least amount of damage.

Justice is served. His fault all day long.

Everyone is entitled to their own opinion, but you're just plain wrong and so are the stewards:P.

Likely Max will take the engine penaly for the next race now I think, seems like they both need to do it at some stage so he'd be better off doing it when his ceiling is 4th anyway.

Mad that so many of the drivers were against the halo - it pretty much meant Lewis didn’t die or suffer serious injury in this race. The pictures don’t make pretty viewing. 

First thing I thought when the accident happened. Sometimes regulations can be a bit pedantic but as you’ve mentioned, this saved someone’s life here.

Yup, it's happening. Also the weather forecast for the whole week-end at Sochi is shite, loads of the wet stuff, will make for an interesting race. My money's on another McLaren one two, but with Lando on the top step this time:P

Wouldn't mind that in the slightest because I don't think Mercedes or Hamilton have got even a slim chance of winning anything this season.

Get the fuck in! Lando pole, Russell third and three of the front four Brits, bloody loved that!

Fantastic qualifying session, so strange but Lewis is so out of character this season. Won title after title from not making mistakes yet he's making tons this year - hitting the wall and pretty much writing off his chances of pole. Funnily enough in Russia that's probably for the best with the long straight(s) to start but still. 

Made up with the top 3 though, Lando on pole and George P3. A glimpse of the future no doubt :happy:. What I'd give for it to end Lando, George, Lewis (in any order). 

Still think Max will be Top 5 despite the back of the grid start. A Red Bull with all new parts will be lightening quick.

USA 1968 only time it's happened; Jackie Stewart, Graham Hill, John Surtees. Well documented I'm no Hamilton fan but I'd love it (preferably with Lewis on the bottom step:P).
