Toto said afterwards they would not have pitted anyway as they were not long into a one stop strategy that was working well and depended on track position. I think Ferrari were in the same boat. They were at the front winning at a canter on tyres that would last the race so why lose track position and change a strategy that was working well.

He also said that they had made a gross error in making that judgement. I think neither the red or silver teams had really considered RBR a threat at that stage of the race.

So yes the timing of the SC might have been bad but it would have made no difference to their choice of stopping or not.

At least if you're going to say it's rigged, point to the fact that a Haas botched pit stop helped Ferrari in Aus and two Toro Rossos colliding helped RBR in China

Poor Bottas. He looked well in control, couldn't really see Vettel passing him.
So Nico Rosberg says Charlie should never look at what the Safety car is going to affect, if it needs to be called do it.

He also said Danny Ric was the one he hated having behind him.

Having watched the highlights on C4, I have to say Bottas did well and was unlucky with the SC, but well done Danny, proving he's the best at overtaking.

Refreshing to see Seb dealing with the incident with Max so maturely. With his reputation of losing his cool when things go wrong, this was much needed. Max was too ambitious, he threw the kitchen sink at Seb and was right to admit to the mistake

Indeed a case of ambition over ability.

Toto and team must learn that winning is not as easy as was, as for Mr Verstappen he must really start to learn the old adage 'to finish first, first you must finish'

Vettel not happy that safety car was released two laps after the incident, and after he and Bottas had passed the entry line.

Apparently Ted Kravitz gave Ricciardo a fortune cookie pre race, and the first three words of the fortune reading was "You will win....."

I've tried to find evidence of this but have not had any luck. True or false?

but if it was rigged then that begs the question of who it was rigged for?

Ia anyone else getting sick of the constant mythering and sour grapes from Vettel and Hamilton, compared to Ricciardo, Max, maybe even Alonso who seem to smile and brush off barbed questions?

Bottas and Kimi are Finn's so we'll excuse them, in fact the only Finn who I recall smiled a lot in recent times was Lehto! Even Hakkinen could appear uninterested sometimes!

Seb and Ham should be grateful for the opportunities they've had and surely understand that they can't have it all their own way all of the time?

The other guys with happier demeanours are the likes of Hulk, Sainz, Ocon, Gasly. Heck, almost all of the grid.
