Cracking race. Great call from Mercedes, everything to gain from pulling Lewis in with 20 odd laps to go and Ferrari nowhere.

That's exactly the strategy agility that seems to be lacking at Ferrari this year.

Agree, a cracking race again.

Going back to lap 1 I was surprised that the stewards weren’t even asked to look into the Lecleic Bottas clash, it was more than a little naughty

Yeah, silly season is in full force.

Watching P1 right now for Spa. Glad for it to be back, a lot of grid penalties for this race being handed out through component changes

I think EVERY team should change their engines on the same race and then EVERYONE gets a 10 Place penalty that’ll embarrass the FIA into acting on it

A great idea

I always thought the engine component restriction was odd as I don't think anything stops a manufacturer from testing as many engines/components as they want - all the way to destruction - on a dyno. So they're being used anyway in development, just not on the track.

Of course if they could get an agreement with all the teams you know Ferrari wouldn’t play ball.

I may be missing something, but everyone changing engines at the same time would just result in an identical grid after penalties wouldn't it? So what's the point?
