Bottas 1st, Hamilton 2nd, Vettel 3rd....Bit boring at the front but the battles in the middle of the grid were great....

Bye bye F1...till 2018 slight_frown

I didn't get to watch it, in fact I can't be assed watching anything at all atm, even missed all the footy yesterday. Only score I know is the ManU one because I get alerts.

So this is the first I know of the result. Was it team orders or was Lewis just not fast enough?

Lewis said he needed to be 1.4 secs a lap faster than the car he wanted to overtake at that circuit.
He then admitted that he wasn't 1.4 secs faster than Valteri.

It's also a problem for the Mercs as they aren't good at following another car.
He said once you get to about 1.3 secs behind the turbulent air off the car in front plays havoc with the handling.
I guess they will need to work on that for next season wink

No.. Lewis wasn't fast enough to overtake Valtteri who drove a very consistent race.

If honest there was no need to overtake. Vettel was 3rd  and no way would he have lost 2nd place in the wdc.

Lewis however, was the very first to applaud Bottas whilst they were till in the cars after chequered flag. Then they both did 'donuts' in those Silver Arrows

Bottas deserved the win....and Lewis wants him as team mate. Job done...Bouncy

Vettel drove a very lonely race in 3rd.  Kimi in a poorer car as usual. Max couldn't do much and Danny Ricc had a DNF..... Massa's last race and he looked as if he was going onto the podium post race...(according to where he parked his car) Smiley Very Happy

 

Anyone seen the new F1 logo for 2018? ...

I have to say I'm worried for Mercedes next season. Ferrari and Red Bull are proving a match or are superior at certain circuits and I'm not so sure they will dominate next season. 

What's the opinions, the unbiased ones, on other forums or websites?
