Not a great race but some interesting stuff I guess.

Dirty side of the race was cleaner and provided better starts. Seen that a few times in China. Vettel managed to defend a position without spinning. Ferraris team orders were odd, but Leclercs description of the situation was incorrect. Honda are slowly getting there.

What a great and enthusiastic crowd.

Played well on television.

China might not have a history in motorsport but appears to be building one now.

So, at the moment, it might be best for Ferrari to resist their inclination towards too many team orders and let the drivers sort it out. In the end, the drivers' championship could be lost by going one way or another at a point at which neither driver has a big advantage over the other.
But they didn't maximise it for their lead driver (who was Leclerc at that moment). They maximised it for their favoured driver. That allowed Verstappen to undercut Leclerc and eventually relegated him from 3rd to 5th, while Vettel gained 3rd instead of the 4th he would otherwise have (probably) got. "Foot" and "shot" are words that spring to mind. Leclerc is going to have to get used to being in the Irvine/Barichello position. The difference is, he's a young hotshot with immense talent in his second season, and he deserves better. By the end of the season he will have either been ground down or there will have been the most almighty bust-up. You can guess which one I'll be hoping for .

The latter.

Ferrari should let them duke it out at this point, in my humble opinion.

They should. Would at least provide some excitement. They surely are not duking it out with Mercedes for the championship so might as well let the boys race.

Indeed. I have the greatest respect for Web bit Charles appears to be the real deal. Would be good to see them fight for supremacy.

Yep, theres something about M. Leclerc that's intangibly great. I think he's the real deal, a future multiple champion - if he can get a team onside.

Will Hamilton retire and leave a gap for him to fill?

Well he’s entertaining. He has bags of potential and is already proving a match for Vettel

I think the chances of him taking Hamilton’s seat though are not likely

I think he’s done alright so far, despite a few moments and anyone who can challenge Vettel in the same car must be good. Just imagine what would have happened had he been in the Mercedes for this season

Probably just a coincidence but so far every race the car on pole has been pipped to the first corner by the car in second place.

leclerc's got the humility that so many lack. you imagine in ten years time that he'll still be as harsh on himself but still blowing the doors off the ferrari or whichever car he finds himself in. the way he takes tough occurrences and personal tragedy, processes it and continues unabated is remarkable.

it's that kind of mental fortitude that hamilton respects and fears in an opponent, imo - see rosberg.

Certainly in China you could see that the 2nd place side of the grid had much more rubber down than the pole side. The commentators remarked on it, as well. The pole man and the cars behind him on the same side all struggled relative to the others. Sometimes being on pole doesn’t give the advantage hoped for!

Hamilton's not retiring anytime soon, he's on a roll. I'm sure he and Mercedes, would like to beat Schumacher's 7 WDCs. With regards to Mercedes, what is going to happen to Ocon?

I can't get my head around the pole man not being allowed to choose which side of the grid he wants to start on.
