I think his comment that "I would have done the same" reflects that it was instinct, rather than malice.

But an infringement within the rules of the game.

Interesting to watch as they're both also massive sim racers. Also funny how both of them missed that last apex by quite a gap. Apart from Max using a bit more track on 1 of the right handers you couldn't see much if any difference in their approach to the circuit which is evidenced in their lap times.

Hoping I tempt fate with this - *so dull*.

And can't even blame it on Mercedes' domination - would be the same without them.

Too many taxing turns where the driver is having to concentrate too much on just staying on track let alone attempting an overtake.

F1 is only a couple of seasons away from being dead imo.

They could try a different layout next year. One interesting suggestion I saw also was to run qualifying and the race on different layouts, add some variety and maybe force drivers to optimise for either qualifying or the race. I would also not be opposed at all to them turning on the sprinklers at a random point in the race, can't be any more artificial than DRS etc.

You wanted action you got action with two laps to go, just a bit too much.

Gutted for Lando. Me thinks Daniel might be in trouble.

Yep, if that's not a penalty considering the last race...

Ricciardo gets 2 x 5 seconds penalties for rejoining unsafely and forcing Norris off track, then overtaking Raikkonen off track. He gets a total of three penalty points. Norris up to 9th, and Ricciardo out of the points in 11th.

I hate those painted lines. Just put some proper run-off areas in!

Fun qualifying session today, looking forward to the race a bit more than usual:

Great to see McLaren's improvement, that's a great result for Norris (unfortunately Sainz had engine penalties.)

Explanation as for Lewis’ 3 place grid penalty resulted in him dropping 2 places here:
