    So Leclerc can just punt Verstappen off the track and nothing??!! But Vettel gets a win taken away from just re-entering the track...

    After the race. yes.

    The accident with Verstappen was not much more than a racing incident IMO. opening lap, cars running close together, two of the most ambitious drivers on the planet. Charles just understeered into him due to lack of front down force. Certainly nothing to compare with Vettel's dangerous deliberate rejoining of track in Canada.

    5 times out of 10 Verstappen would have carried on the race with minor damage. It's the kind of incident that happens at nearly every start.

    However driving past the pits with his car disintegrating, Showering track and Hamilton with Debris.. not bringing in car as they'd told the race director they would... I think black flagging or even a race ban would have been justified. How there wasn't subsequent high speed accident due to a puncture I do not know.

    Pure luck. Leclerc was being a bit cheeky by staying out. He should have stopped immediately. Great drive by Bottas and a great late effort by Vettel to stay ahead of Hamilton.

    Not what I saw, Leclerc moved left in the corner to protect his line, he could of easily held it against the the curb on his right, he was driving defensively and wrecked Verstappen. Minimum of a stop for 10 seconds for taking someone out of the race. Which may have been more penalizing then dropping him one spot after the race. IMO, the punishment didn't fit the crime. It was a young kid driving over his head frustrated from a shitty start

    Lotta bad luck in this race... verstappen right back behind albon at the end. if he and leclerc hadn’t had their problems, the ending would’ve been a lot more interesting.







    nice to be able to watch the race at a reasonable time of day.

    Hopefully the aero stiff helps. But why even heavier, all the drivers bemoan them already being too heavy. And none of it really matters with the the tires Pirelli provide a the moment.

    And then of course what the fuck happens when Renault's new chairman pulls them out of F1 and maybe Mercedes goes too.. There really isn't much left in this for them anymore.

    Great race in Brazil.

    Lots of action, drama.

    That last half a lap with Hamilton and Gasly was like a badly scripted movie.
