Big contact for Rosberg. Very lucky to still be racing. As a Hamilton fan I can't help but think that shunt would have ended his race.

came here to post this.

A very Indycar-esque start with those Williams-es. I approve.

Yep Hamilton would have had a wheel breaking off and also probably a knackered engine/ gearbox somehow for the next race

Nico should be investigated for the Bottas contact - took a place by nudging him out, pure and simple.

So much for Nico getting his revenge and winning this race for sure. Bar some miracle the best he can do is 2nd again.

Even without these telemetry issues he would've struggled to win this race, now he has a massive task on his hands!

In my option this is why hamilton/vettel are above Rosberg. In the Mercedes they'd be second by now even after that bad start

It's been few races and I still can't get used to seeing the cars come down the straight and not hear a damn thing. It's almost like I'm on mute.

Alonso is holding his own right now...closing in on Vettel and keeping Ricci behind comfortably

Nico can't get past a car which would be 35kph slower than him if he got DRS.

 

Poor, poor, poor.

Really dissapointed with Nico tbh, with such a huge pace differential he can't even get past an RBR. I don't see how people can claim he has race craft.

 

EDIT: Poor Massa  :cry:  :cry:

Just had a feeling that Massa would end up undoing that great start. Not exactly his fault, but typical.

Rosberg must have some damage. He is nearly 2 sec behind Ric and running over a second a lap slower than Lewis.

What is up with Rosberg?? Surely he should be flying past the Red Bulls now?

You'd think so! Just hasn't had the pace this weekend. Has been very disappointing.
