The sound bytes from China!



Its interesting to note that whoever messed with Kimi during the race got royally screwed later on. Karma was friends with Kimi at Shanghai.

1) Vettel - the start. That heavy squeeze was one reason why Bottas got ahead.
2) Max - the first lap. The arrogance on the radio there^ was completely wiped out after the race following his dim-witted moves.
3) Ferrari - The team needs to show a lot more respect to someone who was fast all weekend. The team compromised his race early on to save Vettel. That didn't work at all. And yet, Kimi could have won the race after the SC came in - He had a new set of soft tyres available. But no, Ferrari didn't want Kimi to overtake Vettel. The team lost face and precious constructor championship points.

I was traveling and missed the race. It seems a lot has been made of Mercedes lack of speed. The fact is that the safety car caused this result with Red bull being on fresher, softer tires after Merc/Ferrari made an error in strategy.

What was surprising for me is Toro Rosso's pace. They had an amazing race at Bahrain and within a week they had a big explainable drop off in pace.

Mclaren just shared this image from the Chinese GP.

The war scarred nose of the car with a generous helping of rubber as makeup.
