Massive strategy mistake from Ferrari.

Lewis and Max were fantastic once more.
Body language suggests Seb is a beaten man. But never under estimate the fighting spirit of the Germans.

The second place from MAX is actually incredible in the slower car ,with issues during the race !
His Renault RB14 engine has 80 HP less of power ,and a slower top-speed from minus 18 km/h .
These numbers are a huge loss in F1 terms...

As for the today race in Singapore..
Max had issues with his gearbox ! During the race his gearbox jumped several times in neutral ! Also at the moment (critical moment) when the pace car went back in ... And in the pitlane !
Thank God for the outstanding Red Bull chassis , and MAX !

Dreadfully boring race again, I knew I was going to get spoiled by some of the great races as of late (not including Spa). It's pretty bad when even the announcers are saying how boring it is, I thought that was taboo?

Highlight for me was Perez crying over the radio to get Charlie Whiting to tell the Williams in front of him to move......while racing for position! Hah!

Same here, single handedly ruined several drivers' race.

And damn near ruined Hamilton's 1st place race.

Although, it was funny to see him being a dick to everybody else on the track.

As others have said, it was a terribly boring race. Another "race" like Monaco, where it was more about tire management than racing.

Indeed . Yesterday (during the race) they first thought it was the gearbox .
Later they saw it was the engine that gave him false neutrals in the gearbox .
MAX was actually very skilled that he could take the second place , because he lost a lot of time during the race by the neutrals .
More bad news is...An engine replacement is required for the next race in Russia (Sochi) It will be a hard slog from the rear of the field due to engine penalties.

Because the Renault engine really sucks !

Eager to see what happens tomorrow, like others I thought it was going to be Ferrari’s race to lose. If the race start is clean, it’s going to be a hard race to pass on.

thank you so much for posting that video, I've been chuckling for two days now. Looks like Lewis has the Indian Sign on Seb for sure now.

If you're asking me, then no: I'm American. I just assume you're not asking me if Lewis is English.

I think he was asking you to translate your description of Lewie's coat of arms.
