Ferrari should get rid of Vettel asap and put Verstappen in his place.

So...Here is the man of the race , because he finished with his 3th. place on the podium .
Good job Max !
Iam glad Max did well and hope the Honda Unit continues to improve however they are currently not even close to the Mercs. Without the safety car the gap would have been closer to a minute if the Mercs had not gone into engine saving mode for the last 10+ laps.

One thing is for sure, once Max gets in a truly competitive car he will be the man to beat. I am impressed how much his driving has matured this season, I did not thing he was ready, now i think he is.

Just cancel the rest of this shitshow season, give the titles to Merc, have the season ending ceremony and tell everybody to come back and give it their best try again next year.

It cannot get any worse than this, this is worst season by far and they've all sucked for a loooooong time. TG for the ability to record and fast forward these "races" straight to the end after the first corner.

so Lewis starts 2nd, wins the drag race. but check this out: pic taken a couple mSec after the green, you can see that Max is just passing Lewis' start position. have a look at the rubber on Lewis' (and Max's) side.

Negative . From what I saw was the launch of the Red Bull Honda from Max pretty slow . Vettel f@cked already up in turn 3 by toasting his front tires with flat spots . That's how Max could get the 3th place at that moment in turn 3 .
And in the same moment Vettel's race was already game over in the first 10 sec. of the race by his flat spots ..

His launch may have been weak, but I was referring to him playing it cool and letting the opportunity come to him.

I saw it already in the last 3 races . Honda should work ASAP on their weak launch control .
Max was actually very lucky that Vettel screwed...again .

I'm late to the party, but just wanted to say Bottas did a hell of a job to stay out of trouble on turn 1 without giving up much. He's really done a great job driving this year.
