In final practice!
And will start at the back of the grid due to no time in qualifying. Not enough time to replace gearbox and rebuild car.

Anyone tuned in for the French GP. First time they’re back there in 10 years, Vettel is just slicing through the field after playing bumper cars with Bottas

Hamilton behaved like an uptight princess after the race. He is a diva. As much as I don’t like Ferrari my vote is for Vettel to win the championship. He is perhaps the most down to earth racer in the series.

Ok. I agree. Ricciardo (toe jam champagne drinker that he is) is cooler than Vettel.

I like Ricciardo, but I question his ability to setup a car.
Also, funny that no one’s making a big deal of his strop in the car at last weekend’s qualifying

The middle section always has the better race, commentary from Alonso and the rest are sometimes epic

Despite Ferrari's commanding victory at Spa, I feel that MB will pull something out of the bag to hold the lead in both the driver and constructor's championships.

Bottas' pass on Hartley through Eau Rouge was classic.

I find Haas gets too much stick for their business model. They are operating well within the rules and are within reach of Renault in the constructor's championship. Kudos to them. Williams probably needs to buy more parts from MB than a gearbox to become competitive again next year. Same with McLaren. Oh how the mighty have fallen.

I think vettel, apart from the mistakes in Germany and Baku, is actually driving better than Lewis this year...they keep saying the Ferrari is faster yet stats show the Merc was faster in every sector in a straight line.
Looking at the rest of the field, it’s consistent among the others also. Seb is just a lot more comfortable in this car than he has been for awhile, and as Christian Horner said, when he’s fully happy with his setup he’s unbeatable. Even Bottas is consistently outperforming Kimi (awful luck aside) which suggests the cars aren’t as far apart as we think.

Bottas’ pass was awesome, but DRS plus the sheer power of the Merc made it a lot more manageable than it should’ve been.

Agreed about Haas - if not for Grosjean and the botched stops at Australia, they’d be on top of Renault easily. I’m glad Williams and McLaren are struggling - too many egos for too many years.

After the last race, Ricciardo is prolly thinking twice about Renault though

Fantastic duel for lead of this Italian GP.

On another note, Max once again is proving what a dick he is.

Charles LeClerc --> Ferrari 2019 = Expected

Kimi Raikkonen --> Alfa Romeo Sauber 2019/2020 = Unexpected
