    Now that Hamilton has won his fifth championship, he is now going to become a test driver for innovations that Mercedes wants to implement for next year? Should be interesting to see how the Mercs handle this race in light of the emergence of Red Bull has another podium contender. Ferrari is facing changes in drivers and some tech and we hsall see how Haas handles the final two races to see if they are advancing to the podium.

    Team goal is Manufacturer's title.

    But not as much fun backing in to it.

    Not sure were RB speed is from. But it's there.

    Ferrari changed back to a previous spec but aren't saying how much or where....Nudge, nudge, wink, wink, say no more, say no more..............

    It will be interesting to see how much Honda displays in the last 2 races.

    Vettel now leads Hamilton, Bottas, and Raikkonen, with Verstappen coming in fifth in FP3. Looks like the way the season started. Apparrently, the retro fit for Ferrari is paying nice dividends.

    A near miss with Sirotkin in P2 for Lewis.

    Vettel fined 25,000 Euros for a weighbridge infraction.


    Vettel
    Hamilton
    Raikkonen

    If Vettel gets the jump on Hamilton at the start like Verstappen did last week, you may have a winner Hank!

    Rain could very well switch things up

    Can't pick anyone other than Hamilton to win when he's on the pole

    Hamilton
    Vettel
    Verstappen
    Bottas

    Verstappen is surprisingly very quick

    Ferrari's tire choice has been a complete disaster for them

    Bottas is struggling very badly

    He's holding everyone up and isn't even pulling away from the midfield

    Verstappen is closing in on Hamilton!

    Wow, looks like Red Bull has taken over the race.

    The race pace of the Red Bulls is stunning

    Verstappen started P5 and overtook everyone in front of him on track

    Ricciardo might pick his way up to 3rd before his car fails on him with 5 laps to go

    Hamilton wins thanks to Ocon's excruciatingly dumb move

    Verstappen is pissed

    Never thought I'd see the day when a lap car would spin someone out from the lead

    Watching the post-race and Ocon apparently asked if he could get the lap back from his pit and they said yes. They explained that the reason they said is that they had the tire edge and had the faster car at the moment and probably would have for a bit. Not a good look for Ocon but Verstappen has to be smarter there. Chalk that one up to inexperience on his part.

    Hamilton wins it followed by Verstappen, Raikkonen, and Ricciardo. Verstappen was sneaky fast and Ricciardo had a good race finishing fourth. Red Bull is coming on strong here at the end of the season. Haas's drivers finished again in the points-paying positions of 8th and 9th. Their hard work is paying-off!!
