Imagine what we'd be saying if that was Mazepin. From what I've read, Vettel seems a great guy off-track, however I kinda fear for him this year on-track.
Yeah Vettel was a complete numpty today, and reverted back to blaming everyone but himself.

I think one thing we can fairly safely say and I have said for years the Redbull is (still) fragile

Vettel picked up five penalty points over this one weekend for the yellow flag incident in qualifying and the crash, he'll have to be careful over the rest of the year.

The crash reminded me of the one he had with Verstappen a couple of years ago at Silverstone just after being overtaken. He's had a few incidents like that if I recall correctly, I assume he has issues when the aero balance changes under braking when he's up close with another car.

Mazaspin, I just hope he doesn't take anyone else with him.

It's raining in Imola

Alonso's already binned it on the way to the grid, but he got going again.

Great drive from Norris, awesome effort. Perez and Bottas not doing an awful lot for their respective teams.

What an exciting race! I was hoping for Norris to get P2 but P3 is great also. He's really shown he's a class driver and is getting better all the time.

I watched the Russell/Bottas crash loads of times and can only come to the conclusion its a racing incident caused by the moist conditions. Perhaps he should have been more cautious but that's not what forumula 1 drivers tend to do when fighting for position.

It's a shame we may not see Imola again for a few years, although overtaking is hard, it really pushes the drivers and we see plenty of mistakes, especially in the wet.

The fact that Russell could even keep up with Bottas let alone attack is a big statement of intent, that car is not up to the Mercedes in the slightest and yet...

By the way if you weren’t keeping note Kimi did get a penalty and as a result Ocon went up to 9th and Alonso 10th

I think it goes to show how annoyed Toto Wolff is with Bottas's form at the moment in the way that he refused to side with him in the crash with Russell. It seems that the actual incident was no one's fault in particular but you would think that Russell's reaction would have resulted in a dressing down and condemnation from Mercedes but Toto, at least, publicly suggested they both behaved badly. I kind of suspect that Toto is thinking that if Bottas is in a position to be overtaken by a Williams, he deserves being hit in the helmet.

As was guessed, Canada is out and Turkey replaces it.

Romain Grosjean is going to get his wish to close out his F1 career properly, he's got a demo run and a full day test with Mercedes in their 2019 car around the French Grand Prix:
