Ricciardo. Excellent drive. It would be good to see him have one last podium before he disappears into obscurity with Renault.

He has let his giant ego/personality trip him up in the past, when things haven't go his way.

But 6 wins out of the last 7 races bears out what chilli says...... The past is only there for reference, at the moment at least.

his hair is still the worst though. he should wear his helmet more.

Hamilton is a true out and out racer, it's just that when things haven't gone his way, he can get sulky, though this season he has shown a lot less of that side of himself.

I guess they all have different temperaments, particularly the very best. I confess I don't care too much for the hair and the tattoos and the emotions, but it doesn't really matter when you drive race after race without error and have the 'best of the rest' making mistakes in your wake...

The tattoos are de rigueur. All sports types have them these days, from Cricket to Rugby.

I'm still undecided between Perez and Sainz.

Both had to fight hard with cars in their own league to get
* the best of the rest for Sergio,
* a useful point for Carlos with a car that is known to be hard on its tires

As for the drive-trhough-the-field-drives: like I have mentioned before, I don't see those as all that geat. The top 6 have such a car advantage that you don't expect anything less than them finishing in the top 6.
Most of the opposition are not even putting up a fight.
Vettel also had no (real) difficulty to recover from 16th on lap 27 to 6th.
In that perspective, no, I don't find that all very spectacular. Not with Vettel, Verstappen, Bottas, Hamilton or Raikkonnen in previous races either.
