Now I am eagerly waiting for Abu Dhabi

With a new ICE, new TC & new MGU he's going to give hard time to all front runners with an attitude of nothing to loose.

Cheers!

I think he didn't have the tyres in shape in the final laps to mount a challenge.

The main issue was he lost close to 2 seconds behind back-markers. If not he would have at the tail of KR 2 laps earlier and a pass was possible.

Stroll was a troll black marker, Hamilton lost lot of time behind him before pitting and again after pitting.
Also the lock up by hamilton in the last few laps, didn't help.

That new engine from Mercedes is really something! Lewis was doing some insane speeds in the DRS zones. And a great drive from the pit lane.

Kimi now has 21 podiums without a win - the most in F1 history. Don't think he takes pride in that record though.

Speaking of records, no driver has beaten someone driving a Mercedes in the championship since the hybrid turbo era began. And Vettel will most likely become the first unless Bottas has a great lucky weekend in Abu Dhabi.

Vettel managing to pip Bottas at the start and a charging Hamilton made what would have otherwise been a procession a great race. And the great moves by Ricciardo. Those late braking moves into Turn 1 were just awesome.

I feel Vettel did a great job of managing the race as he did not have the pace advantage to build a huge advantage over Bottas. The Ferrari pit stop also ensured that the Mercedes undercut was just about covered.

While the Finn does not have the kind of raw talent that someone like Verstappen has, I believe that there were a few things to consider. Firstly with well matched cars it was seen how difficult it was to overtake in Interlagos. Hamilton has a brand new version of the engine which was an advantage that Bottas did not enjoy. And the Ferraris were no slouch either.

Apart from been thrown at the deep end early this year I don't think the car was setup entirely to the characteristics that suited him. Hamilton had a massive advantage in this regard. We saw this with Vettel in his last year at RB where the car character did not suit his driving style at all. Lauda has said as much in support of Bottas too.

I would give Bottas another year when he gets the full benefit of a design cycle.

Drive on,
Shibu.

During this race Ocon's record of 27 consecutive races(F1) without a DNF came to an end . And three years since his last retirement in any race(single-seaters). This guy is very consistent and quick too, hope he gets a seat in any of the top teams soon.
