It was definitely an interesting event. I only saw the highlights. TBH I don't think the circuit is as good as say Suzuka, which I miss atm. But the rain certainly livened things up. I thought C4 did a good job of it, it's just a shame there's no live races on FTA.

Definitely I am glad Bottas won, he's still a great driver and it was nice to see drivers trying to go to the end on their inters, rather than constant pitstops. I gave it an 8 for an interesting race

Sainz may not quite be the finished article, but he's shown what a top class driver he is and he will win a race hopefully in an improved Ferrari next year. Gasly for me is a bit inconsistent. He can be good on some days, invisible on other days IMO. Although that incident with Alonso looked nothing more than a racing incident and just a case of three into 1 doesn't go. Of course the FIA know more, but they choose to keep us guessing instead of showing us the data

This one was excellent to watch in full, because it was quite captivating to watch the tyre issues (or non-issues) unfold. I voted an 8.

Teretonga, I really agree about Sainz, but respectfully disagree about Gasly. His few bad races these days stick out because they're the exception. He is mightily fast and although he had a poor race in Sochi and made the mistake here, I don't know what that shows us. I thought he was unlucky to be singled out as at fault in the Alonso incident. Looked like standard wet-weather understeer to me, although I don't have the data the FIA do.
Actually the Gasly comment had nothing to do with the penalty. In that situation he was between a rock and a hard place. Dammed if he did and dammed if he couldn't.
Nah. It was just an overall feeling that Perez outshone him. That was why RB passed on returning him to the main team. I like Gasly and would be happy to see him in the main team but I have also always like Perez and supported him ever since he was at Sauber. I was annoyed when McLaren dropped him.

So what I saw in Turkey was more than a competent journeyman. Going head to head with Sir L Ham and pulling it off was magic for me and with the podium he shone like a beacon.

I think Gasly's best hope of sustained success is outside the RB family.

They will be team Max for a long, long time.
