It’ll be nice to see what Hamilton can do without a gimme pit stop to Vettel under VSC (Australia) and a five grid spot penalty (Bahrain). Will Vettel continue winning with a level playing field? Maybe we’ll see in China next week.

This ^. Hamilton has yet to run a full race, qualifying to race finish, with an error free or non-penalized car. And I think Ferrari also has to make sure they can put up a season long fight. Last year they came on strong in the first part of the season and then fell off at the end.

I am loving how competitive the field appears to be this year. I was also relieved to see that the lack of overtaking in Australia was mostly due to the track and not the cars.

No doubt. That triple overtake by 44 on Sunday was wicked.

Winning!

Commercials make NASCAR unwatchable.

Great win for Ricciardo in Shanghai! Smart move by Red Bull to take tires during the safety car. Easy pickings for DR on fresh tires. Verstappen should have probably rode his coattail to 2nd place, but like the young fool he is, he tried first to run over Hamilton, and finally did run over Vettel, spinning them both.

Yeah, sheesh Verstappen needs to tame himself. Like you said if just kept driving, his pace would have led him to P2.

Was wishing for a better result from Haas but MAG still took home a point. Nice to see Hamilton gain a bit on Vettel in the standings.

Also, picked up a new hat the other day! Hehe.

Ooo nice hat! I could use some new Haas merch.

And I'm super glad Danny Ric. won. He truly deserved it.
I want to like Max, but his ambition keeps getting the best of him.
And being a Vettel fan, I was super disappointed. However Ferrari's strategy was not great either.
But it happens, racing is racing.

On a bright note for Ferrari fans, they kicked arse in qualifying. The Red Bull tire strategy is what won the race. MB-AMG was missing a little something all weekend.

The Silver Arrows have been missing a little something all season so far IMO.
Not mad about it though.
