I'm just seeing rivals for the championship. They both know how good each other is. The 'fanboy' stuff, whether applied positively or negatively is one of the things that is seriously affecting my enjoyment of F1 at the moment...... Some of the stuff that I read and hear is bordering on the puerile.

It's still really close in championship. It looks like it could come down to the very last race.

No, but Bottas seems to be having more extremes in form?

On the days he is at his best he is winning. On the days when everything does not click, he is a fair bit off the pace.

Hamilton is having the same form but he is having less 'off' days.

With Ferrari, it doesn't matter if Kimi has a good day, he won't be able to max it as long as his Dodgy podium dancing teammate is ahead of him.

I think Bottas is learning well off Lewis, he could be even better next season

Today was Lewis' day. He kept Vettel at bay after the safety car and won.

Still very close though, and Vettel still leads the WDC.

I just want to say that the best driver won today, in keeping Vettel at bay with another fine drive to the victory

Watch how the best team of 2017, with the best cars of 2017 - threw away a great chance to win the WCC and WDC.

Good to see some praise for Vettel as being part of the best team in F1...

Ferrari made strategy errors, Ferrari had below par reliability even before Malaysia and Suzuka (remember that we were discussing Ferrari needing to take penalties later on in the season because they were using up turbos in the beginning) and Ferrari never had a 1s+ advantage at any race this season.

And now a totally honest question: what makes you think that on overall terms Ferrari as a team and as a car were/are better than Mercedes? I am really quite interested in getting an answer as maybe you know something the rest of the forum does not?

It's an appreciation of the talent that sits in the drivers' seats.
