It would be nice to have three top teams instead of just one

Ferrari determined to facilitate Mercedes championship. Unfortunately, there is only one top team

Got to hand it to Merc - cars have been running amazing and seem perfectly set up for every type of circuit. Drivers (though possibly no love lost between them) have been outstanding. And a fair bit of luck on their side, such as Leclerc running out of puff 2 races ago.

They are up some 75+ points on constructors, 4 races in.

I think they have been pretending to be afraid of Ferrari all season, while just methodically capitalizing on every advantage they find.

Bottas is up by 1 Point. I think LeClerc could have been a challenge if he had not crashed out in Q2. He had a solid race. They may have left him out a little too long, and I did like how they gave him a chance to get the fastest lap and he pulled it off.
I think Raikennen recovered well. McLaren had their best team result in a super long time as did Racing Point.

For this track, there was a serious lack of carnage.

Well as sad as it is. After Hamilton, I’m rooting for Alfa and Kimi. And i don’t care who knows it.

Kimi is my favorite driver and I think he is doing a great job for Alfa Romeo, has zero stress and is just enjoying himself

Meanwhile, memo to Daniel Ricciardo: “Objects in mirror are closer than they appear”.

I’m liking the fastest lap point. Livens things up more than just the mystery of who will finish 3rd or which silver arrow will win.
Really, it should be a possibility for nearly half the grid to achieve with the right combination of tires, timing, and traffic.

I wonder if LEC asked for that or the offered. Seemed like a no brainer to tryit.

And from the radio I heard yesterday, it sounded like Kvyat was having trouble putting the car into reverse. I was wondering why he sat there for so long with no traffic.
