That was a very clean start, with Vettel nearly getting the better of Hamilton.

Impressive driving from Verstappen, as he is up to 7th. Meanwhile sister team STR have a double retirement, despite those Honda upgrades.

Lewis wins it but Bottas was hard done by.

Didn't watch but I'm surprised looking at the results how close to the Mercedes cars Vettel managed to finish.

The post race interviews were rather awkward and the whole thing is rather subdued. From a PR point of view, I don't think Mercedes did themselves any favours.

Thought this would be the case. Unless Lewis retires from a race Bottas will jave no chance to win. Glad I didn't watch it.

Good choice you made there.

For me, the leaders not more than 5 secs apart ('cept stops) and Max; other stuff behind, provided plenty of entertainment.

As always, there's something for everyone. Choices are great, no?

IMHO Mercedes made a good driver look like a cheat, a slightly less talented driver look like a fool, F1 look like farce, and the fans feel cheated. If the FIA had any sense they would punish the team by removing all points they scored in this race. Team orders might be ok if in the last few races things are close but at this stage and with Hamilton so far ahead it just makes F! look foolish.

Mercedes didn't make Bottas look like a fool, they made themselves and Hamilton look like fools. This will resonate, just like Schumacher and Barrichello. Otherwise yes, have their points deducted, though unfortunately that won't happen.

This is the worst thing that has happened in the history of F1, no in the history of sport. People might have bet on Battas winning, stupid people, but nonetheless. This must be illegal. Why can’t the sport be like the old days when men were real men and team orders simply meant come into he pits and give your car to someone else. Fortunately I didn’t see any of this because I sold my telly after Austria 2002.

Nobody likes team orders, but can any of us say we'd do it differently if we were in charge? It makes sense.

Stoop being a prat.

Of course team prdra are accepted. Indeed if there was an imperative such as only two races to go an the points were owe than if course swap the drivers. But as I understand it Lewis had a big enough lead to make this facile. Irony is fine but grow up.
