The narrative about Ferrari has been poor strategy putting them on the back foot, but I'm beginning to think its maybe the opposite. Maybe the car is worse than we thought and they were overachieving previously. It has been really only Mercedes that has been saying that Ferrari is any threat or doing well with their development. I mean Kimi ran a perfectly solid race and was passed by a Merc that after the opening lap was in dead last. It just seems to me now that their car has been overrated all season. Red Bull has full on passed them up with engine gains.... but the Renault engine is still by all accounts lesser than the Ferrari one.

At this rate I would almost bet that next year the Maclaren is better than the Ferrari.

Last year the Ferrari was the only one close to them, since Renault fucked up their engines so badly, but since Mercedes has fixed their biggest problems, almost all related to heat and tire life, the big advantage Ferrari had is basically gone now. Now that they have to defend from the Red Bulls, especially since Renault has their act together, it's probably pulling them back a bit, and RB have probably surpassed them development-wise, since Ferrari might have switched to 2017 a little earlier.

That bad pit stop 100% cost ricciardo the race, if he'd had a decent one he would have left at least a little ahead of lewis, and could defend from there.

Driver of the Day voting is open, and today's was a tough call but i think i made the right choice

I like how they extended the pre-champagne music fill to make sure that this year putin didn't get his suit wet. Also kimi not giving a shit, as usual.

Putin standing around awkwardly hoping someone will say hello is one of my favourite things today

I love that the comments that were taken out of context were that hitler "was able to get things done" and that in saying they were taken out of context he just doubled down on them.

I missed the third quarter, but that was a heck of a race. I feel really bad for ricciardo, I hope they don't make him change his hair.

Old quali also let Mercedes experiment by going on the softs in q2 because if it turned out that their lap was far off the pace, they could re-do it on super softs, instead of being knocked out before they could react.

hahaha on sky they mentioned ricciardo's dumbass haircut, which he got because he went out drinking with friends and one of them had scissors. Maybe it is lucky
