This was a crap race, but also shows how our standards have been raised compared to previous years, given we had on-track passes from Max on both Mercs, from Hamilton on both Max and Bottas, and loads of racing right down the field.

Stinker of a race really, nice track to drive on your own I am sure, awful for racing on. Wouldn't miss it at all.
Spain will probably be more of the same. I do not want to lose faith in this season so early. Having said that, this track was total garbage for grip, which RB seem to have been expecting. Spain is usually dire but I would like an RB win to keep the season interesting, far too many years now that seasons are over before long.
At least we only have a week to wait as well.

Hopefully with testing not have taken place in Barcelona this year and teams not having a ton of data might make next week somewhat interesting? A fools hope maybe.

Merc is still the fastest car despite "We're the hunted" nonsense before the race. :rolleyes:

I am not sure about this, Max should have been on Pole, whether he would have kept the lead we'll never know, but his getting passed by Hamilton was down to 2 mistakes he made in short order allowing the DRS pass.
It is clear the Red Bull had more issues running in dirty air than the Merc did.

Did Bottas really do that badly , Yeah got over Taken by Lewis .
He got Caught with cold tyres by Max so he was Dispatched easily there and Lewis was given that warning when he came after Bottas that the tyres would take a lap . Bottas did recover and started to close on Max . I think it was down to just over a Second and he then Had 2 issue he could do nothing about . Heat sensor slowed the car , and also Yuki returning to the track cost him time( that was bottas Right ). There is not much he could do about either of those incidents . He is not as good as Lewis but I do think he will Cause RedBull problems .
He can should always be in the mix for Poll and that always leaves 2 Mercedes to deal with. So Far it could go either way for Perez and Lando likes to make himself an annoyance

You could say exactly the same thing about Bottas, he's average and Lewis' obvious no 2. I don't think there's much to choose between them. Bottas definitely seems worse than he is because he is in Lewis' shadow all the time. If he does get the boot from Mercedes I don't think the other top teams will be tripping over themselves to snap him up.

not so sure about that his testing and dev experience would be worth something to a 2nd div team
