    Nice to see Sainz going on the attack after Max

    Quali was just not bad enough for them.

    LeClerc's fault this time.

    Good think they brought all of those upgrades this week

    Silly from LeClerc. At the front.. will be easy win for Hamilton now unfortunately.

    Yep - pretty much a "torpedo" move. Not sure if he just overshot himself on the brakes or was actually hoping for it to work.

    Poor from Leclerc there. He was too far behind to lunge down the inside like he did.


  • Registered Users Posts: 25,052 ✭✭✭✭ Buttonftw


    I like Sainz but we need him to stay out of the way for the lead battle. :pac:

    Ah Ferrari. That one on LeClerc I think.

    Great rescue from George, there

    Ffs, at least Ferrari get to pack up early to get a head start on getting to Budapest

    Disaster for Ferrari again. This could be an embarrassing year for them.

    I’m a huge fan of Leclerc, and maybe I need to look at it again but looked like an overly ambitious move.

    Saying that maybe I’m wrong putting blame on Leclerc as Brundle seems to be blaming Vettel but at first glance (since Vettel had the line and was in front) it looked like Leclerc tried a very difficult move to cut in around the corner and hopped up over the kerb. Bit clumsy I thought.

    See you next weekend Ferrari

    Was going to say that Leclerc would be lucky to finish with that coming together, so much more than the front wing.
    Both ferrari cars retired now due to hitting each other.


  • Registered Users Posts: 25,052 ✭✭✭✭ Buttonftw


    Hamilton cruising away. :( Matter of time for Bottas to be on Verstappen's tail.


  • Registered Users Posts: 13,992 ✭✭✭✭ skipper_G


    Double DNF for Ferrari, nowhere for Vettel to go. Costly mistake from Leclerc.

    Elsewhere Perez up to P11 already, nice recovery with an assist from Ferrari

    Don’t think Leclerc or Vettel we’re going to compete today.

    Comes down to Verstappen and Bottas to me for any chance of a challenge to Lewis.


  • Registered Users Posts: 9,281 ✭✭✭ Adamocovic


    Devastating for Russell. Points probably gone unless a few more DNFs and mistakes.


  • Registered Users Posts: 11,274 ✭✭✭✭ ctrl-alt-delete


    Is ricciardo asking to be let ahead of ocon with that message?


  • Registered Users Posts: 9,601 ✭✭✭ Faugheen


    Perez with an interesting line there

    Install rain sprinklers at all the circuits. Rain at the touch of a button!

    He had the same chance of points as last week. The Williams will be finishing last barring a late-race incident causing someone to finish behind them. They're very, very slow.

    Scratch that haha looks like Lewis is pulling away easily.

    To be fair, I’m not a fan of his but after that brilliant qualy yesterday he deserves to win this race. Would have been nicer to see Verstappen stay tight on him to make a challenge of it though.

    from Sainz to Perez it's a DRS train

    Brundle has since clarified that he mixed the drivers up. LeClerc to blame.

    True but would have been nice to see him stay up there longer and give some hope.

    He was always going to have to be defensive though with the lack of speed. Would have been good to see them racing others for a bit though.

    Bernie had that idea a few years ago

    Ferrari picking up 0 points.

    Going to be weird looking at the Constructors standing after this race and seeing Ferrari down so far.

    Looks like Brundle has backtracked and confused which Ferrari was which.

    Now he’s pinning it on Leclerc. It just feels weird Ferrari being so far back this year.
