To be fair to Max he couldn’t anticipate Stroll brake testing him!

But it was a decent race... not quite as exciting as the last two, bit I don’t think it could have been!

On a side note I’m glad to see Hamilton back to winning ways as he definitely has the talent, despite his poor recent run of form.

As it’s been put by DC many times...

Dry and hot race forecast for today. Danny Ric looked pretty unstoppable again yesterday. Hopefully Red Bull don't mess up their pitstops this year.

Grosjean and Verstappen starting near each other, with KMag in-between. That'll be interesting...

Well, incase anyone is having a long weekend and hasn't watched yet, but still found their way to this thread...

Spoiler: show
The race was pretty much the same throughout of Danny Ric maintaining the pace and no one able to do anything. But when the context changed from being tyre management for the first 20 laps, to him managing a broken car, the race became more interesting. Even though, pretty much the same thing was happening!

Loss of two gears and the energy recovery turning on at all the wrong places, made it a tough race for him.

Other than that, Vettel hit all the targets on podium!

Well aside from the Hartley/Stroll incident that was quite a quiet race. A pair of slow races back to back never looks good for F1.

It’s a shame that Bottas and Raikkonen don’t have the ability to challenge their teammates, but kudos to Bottas this weekend for putting together a solid race, in no way exciting but solid none the less.

I’m looking forward to the French Grand Prix, a track many may not have raced at before. Should make some interesting first lap nerves!

Aston Martin Red Bull Racing have announced that, from the 2019 season, they will be running Honda engines instead of Renault.

I actually don’t think this is a bad move. McLaren don’t seem to be making the progress they had hoped with Renault, and the Honda power unit seems to be performing much better at Toro Rosso, although they haven’t really had the results which reflect that, except Gasly’s strong finish in Bahrain.

For purely selfish reasons, I hope this works out for them and we see Red Bull challenging Mercedes and Ferrari consistently next season.

Will be interesting. Either McLaren or Red Bull are about to become very upset. 

Toro Rosso will be getting engine penalties soon enough though, as they've already maxed out the allowance on all of their engine parts. But seeing as Ricciardo has as well and Verstappen is not far off, the Honda has certainly improved since last year in reliability compared to Renault.

Red Bull seems to be improving a lot recently and I hope it is a decision that will work in their favour :)

I think McLaren we’re putting a lot of blame on the engine and really allowing their other design teams to go under the radar.

It’s a shame they were caught napping but hopefully this will give Red Bull a real title opportunity next season!

Brendon Hartley kicks off the Honda grid penalties. Drops to the back of the grid regardless of qualifying, with a 35 place grid penalty for changing pretty much everything.

Also this circuit is crazy! A testing circuit not really designed for racing. Which driver will be the first to take the wrong turn during the race?

And maybe a "Seriously, what are we even doing here?" from Vettel :lol.

Some more of that rain world be good. Failing that, this place does have those sprinklers that Bernie always said he wanted to put into a race...

Another yawnfest of a race, despite the overtakes from Bottas and Vettel as they came back through the field.

With the rumours of Charles LeClerc moving to Ferrari next year, do any of you guys have a guess on who may move where at the end of the season?

Ricciardo is reported to be staying at Red Bull (don't think it's been officially confirmed yet), which probably means Bottas is staying at Mercedes.

Alonso I'm guessing will wait to see whether McLaren can fix their aero this year, otherwise I guess he'll go hunting his Indy title, maybe as Kimoa McLaren-Andretti Chevrolet Freddo (no way they're getting Honda engines). Or he'll just be driving random series' having fun.

Grosjean I think is in trouble and may be out of Haas this year.

Maybe with some shuffling around Kubica will get another shot. Although from his comments, I'm not sure he would want to be racing in the current Williams.

I wouldn’t blame anyone not wanting to race with Williams at the moment.

I think it could end up being
LeClerc > Ferrari
Giovanazzi > Sauber
Alonso > Indy Car
Lando Norris > McLaren

But I would like to see Ricciardo move to McLaren and Sainz to join Verstappen again
