Hamilton. Not exciting but he and his car were on top of everything else.

Stroll had a seriously impressive qually and held on pretty well during the race. Verstappen raced well, but falling off on the drive to the grid was a bit silly. Vettel was quicker than of late, and his driving mistakes were smaller. I had high hopes for George Russell but sadly he went backwards in the race. On the other hand, Alex Albon qualified badly but climbed up quite well during the race.

It looked like a pretty simple race from Hamilton - I think he (and the car) had plenty left in the tank, once Bottas has fluffed the start then Hamiltons afternoon was about as easy as they get in F1 (despite all the usual guff from Hamilton and Mercedes about how 'close' it is - they should drop the act, it's getting really annoying as it's so obviously not true).

Driver of the Grand Prix for me probably Magnussen - that Haas has no business being in the points. Good call to swap to slicks (althought the call to originally be on wets was extremely odd) and he clung on as the faster cars came back at him - Grosjean went backwards much quicker.

Honourable mentions for Max (once the race actually started ), Albon for a good recovery drive after the team botched qualifying, Stroll for not fading during the race and Kvyat for hanging in there in the points (and also making the early call to switch to slicks)

I think the decision was simply to do something different to the majority, which is a dice to be rolled when in that position.
Initially they opted for Wets, but as the start got ever closer it became apparent that if you were going to do something different to the field, slicks was the only viable option.

Hindsight makes it look like a good call - personally I think it was just a gamble that went their way. I appreciate them trying it though - it's always better when someone tries a different approach which is still competitive.

Quite likely - given their grid slot a roll of the dice was certainly worth a go.

I think the formation lap was enough to show that slicks would work - Kvyat wanted to switch as well but the team didn't answer him (that we heard) - presumably to avoid the penalty that Haas got. It was only worth the switch for those near the back of the grid though so everyone else had to go with what they had. As you say, it's good to see people try something different rather than just taking the safe option.

I too can understand why they did it, although these things tend to be all or nothing gambles. But this so called rule Haas have fallen foul of is ridiculous. Kvyat could have done the same thing, yet all he needed was a yes. Time to get rid of these silly little rules
