Dude, no need for the trolling..
It's perfectly okay for us to have different opinions!

Yes, they drove through a lot of debris.. might be some concealed damage on some cars..
Lewis reporting reduced power.. although just did the fastest lap!

Win number 89 - seems a sure bet for Lewis to take Schumacher's record (91) this season...
Boring for us, but blimey what a driver!

Do you think that once he has all the records done, he'll be on the phone to Maranello?

Yeah seeing Sainz with his head in his hands watching Ferrari on the monitors today... oh dear.

Vettel swearing on the radio to suggest they might want to think about a pit stop was the comedy moment for me today.

I just want Bottas to be more assertive. I know we can't do much about Mercedes domination at the moment, and it's no shame not to be as fast as Hamilton - but please if he could just fight and assert himself in starts and restarts. Put some doubt into Hamilton's mind in a 50/50 situation. That's all I ask.

Isn't he too old to start again with another team? Especially one on the rocks. Schumacher was a little younger when he started and spent a couple of seasons to get the kinks out.

I'd guess Lewis might be happy with 2/3 more championships with Mercedes. I can't see him doing that with anyone else.

I guess he'll wrap up 7 titles this year, but he'll want at least one more?

Are there any other records that aren't his?

He must have wins, points, poles?

Toto Wolff blaming "certain members" of Ferrari's team for their crap performance.

Rubens still has the record for most races (although Kimi will overtake him soon). Schumacher has the most fastest laps (77 vs Lewis's 49) - that'll take some doing to beat. Jim Clark has more grand slams.

So there's a few if you look hard enough.

Lol the Alonso Triple Crown. Maybe he should have picked the British GP (if he won that) instead of the Indy 500.

Total races seems to be quite hard, depends on how long Kimi goes on for (possibly not much longer) and if Lewis does another 4 seasons, which isn't out the question, could see him going on until 40.

Would love to know what was in the FIA / Ferrari agreement. I don’t recall them ever being so far off the pace, not good at all.

Ditto, I don’t think they were just cheating and got caught, they were REALLY cheating but the FIA are just too scared to lose them

They didn't seem slow at the end of last season though? What has changed since then? Surely there can't have been more restrictions this season.

Maybe the deal was more complex than just stop cheating and we’ll all keep quiet about it. Who knows, is the point?

As Horner said at the time, a secret deal about the legality of a thing just invites and promotes suspicion.

I'm surprised the other teams haven't continued to push the FIA on it.. if the decision and report involved discussion of commercially sensitive technical information that wasn't directly part of the issue, then either that could be redacted, or if fundamental to the understanding of the issue, then they could have just released an abridged statement outlining that a full release of the issue would compromise their confidentiality.
But to have almost zero statement on the issue is just bizarre..

Lewis was surprisingly quiet about BLM this weekend.
