This is clearly the best FE grid ever, the only "filler" i can see is Dillmann, maybe. 

Restart in 2 minutes

I mean, the 1973 British GP had an end of lap one pile up and very long red flag delay before restarting. We're in good company I guess. 

Interesting point.

I think i realise why BBC decided not to show this now, 50 mins of filler while the chat to the drivers.

The BBC knew in advance that there would be a long red flag period? They should use this clairvoyance for their news coverage!

Lotterer should have this in the bag - Jaguar and HWA have slower cars.

Changed components after qualifying, resulting in a grid penalty then converted into a time penalty.

Good of Mitch to give Lotterer enough room. Many lesser drivers would not have done so.

I feel like Lotterer should've taken the attack mode a lap after Evans to stay in the lead.

If you're Evans, do you try to build a gap now, or take the attack mode for the maximum period?

JEV with the fastest lap of the race, but he's pretty low too on energy

it wasnt his fault if Dacosta lifted, so probably thought he would be fine

Great race once it got going, though move for the lead which wouldn’t have come off if the cars weren’t so robust.

Wasn't Da Costa's fault he had to lift.

Rubbish, the contact was very light, I've seen heavier contact with no consequence in F1 several times in recent years.

What an immense race!

 

So over the damn Moon for Mitch. YAS!

 

Lotterer will have his day, he is driving for the better team.

 

Webber needs to visit more often.
