Bottas is useless.

 

He's had better starts than Hamilton in 2 out of three races this year. Seems alright to me

Kvyat an absolute moron once again... he'll never change

I was only joking about the torpedo nickname earlier. I think he just had understeer. It happens to everyone. Wrong place, wrong time. I wouldn't call him a moron for a simple mistake on the first lap.

Best thing for Ferrari is P3, didn't we learn that for Ferrari is the same who finish ahead?. Vettel should overtake if he is faster,

Yet it was Leclerc who himself started it last race when mentioning that he was much faster than Seb.

Leclerc struggling for grip and balance. You can see it's swapping from understeer to oversteer, clearly hasn't got the tyres switched on. Seb is much faster. Surprised Ferrari hasn't swapped them.

Sainz has nowhere to go other than off track or hit his own teammate, so that's Kvyat's fault for hitting him as he had plenty track to use.

There's a LOT of real estate Kvyat didn't bother to use to his right knowing there was two McLarens to his left...

because he was oversteering... If he turned right while oversteering he has a spin and for sure hits 2 cars. He got unlucky that he didn’t hit tyre face to tyre face with Sainz and once he was flicked up he was a passenger.

Braking a tad earlier is not an option these days?

Disappointing race pace from the Renaults on the softer compound. Had hoped they would be able to hang on to the front runners until their early stop.
