The F-1 teams come into Turkey with the end of the season in sight. Hamilton is well on his way to another championship as Mercedes as already locked-up another manufacturer's championship. We shall see if anyone can mount the continued consistency to give Hamilton a challenge and send a message for next year.

Well, this will be a total crapshoot with a very mixed up grid, awful track surface and bad weather at the outset.

Holy fucking shit.

Looked like Hamilton might not get out of Q1.

Dutchy wins everything all weekend till Q3 when he made wrong tire choice.

I think the trick was to run and run and gain confidence, then a quick switch for warm hot speed. Speed such as it was.

Verstappen
Perez
Bottas
Hamilton

I fully expected Perez and Albon to wind up in a heap at turn 1 and 2. Didn't expect it to be Bottas chunking it there. Oh well. Great performance by Perez and both Ferraris. Gotta feel for Stroll, but it was the right call to pit. He just lost his head.

I don't know why I ever expect Max to be mature and patient. He completely threw away a win because he couldn't wait and attacked at the stupidest point on the track. The whole thing was right there for the taking.

Lewis *could* be sitting on 9 championships right now. Just think about that. Best there ever was.

Mechanical failure took the Rosberg one from him. No reliability for him that year.

Yep. Hamilton wins it and captures his 7th Championship. He'll work on next year's stuff with the remaining races and of course add to his win totals. Perez finally gets a podium finish followed by the Ferraris of Vettel and LeClerc. Stroll, Verstappen, and Ricciardo just continue to find ways to lose a race.
