Hamilton dropped Verstappen quickly after getting back up to 2nd. Already in DRS range of Bottas, and looking good at the moment.

Norris also running well, and Tsunoda is once again flouting track limits.

Kimis accident was weird. He just drove into Giovinazzi. Wonder if he was trying to change a setting on the steering wheel or something.

Great move by Hamilton on Bottas around the outside of turn 1.

Lewis now in the lead - will he disappear off down the road?

It gives him preference on pit stops now.

Smart of Ham to make the move right before he reports his tires have gone. Say what you will but he has the race craft.

Hamilton's doing remarkably well, for someone whose tyres have gone.

Congrats to Lewis, in what was a rather tedious race.

I actually quite enjoyed that one....

...if anything it shows how close the cars are now.

In qualifying I think the red bull has it by a couple of tenths, in the race the Merc is ahead by a couple of tenths.

The drivers are making the difference at the moment....the least mistakes win the race

Well done Lewis! Yes Mercedes was fastest, but you still have to convert it.


Was really annoyed with the Perez strategy. Got completely sacrificed in order to give Hamilton a nice tow. I had hoped he still had soft tires for a late dash from the 45th lap or so, but apparently he had no softs left. Very good job from Perez, that's what they got him for.

Exactly that:

Raikkonen distracted by switch change on steering wheel when he hit Alfa Romeo team mate Giovinazzi

Kimi Raikkonen has taken the blame for his race-ending clash with Antonio Giovinazzi early in the Portuguese Grand Prix, the Finn saying he made a misjudgement while making a change on his steering wheel.

Anyone else feel that the fastest tyre strategy would have been medium-soft?

It did, but Mercedes sensibly decided to give Bottas preference to try and protect his position.

Mercedes should have pitted Bottas a lap later, which would have meant that Red Bull would not have had the option to let Verstappen have a go at fastest lap.

Since Max had his fastest lap deleted its academic. I wondered about whether Softs would have been the better choice for the last stint, but Perez would seem to have proved that wasn't the case.....he wasn't making any inroads into Bottas.


Have to say Hamilton driving round the outside of Bottas just emphasises the relative abilities........
