    I'd be surprised if that was true, I read Merc solved it first.

    It looks like everyone's going to take it off, so I guess we'll see soon enough.

    I was thoroughly entertained. Between F1 and the Open, it was a great sporting day.

    Excellent race. Although Felipe should have seen Magnussen there on the inside, it's a shame that he paid such a steep price for the mistake. Ricciardo looks to be the business. I haven't had a chance to read anything (started watching around midnight last night), but if Jenson wasn't intentionally leaving the door open, I'm not sure what the hell he was doing.

    So, this is three mechanicals for LH and one for NR, yes?

    The T1 incident was a tough one to call. If anyone's to blame though its Massa; way too tight a line for the first corner of a race. Rather predictably, he was quick to point the finger at Magnussen.

    Jenson has withdrawn his comments, presumably after watching a replay from the perspective of LH. Great performance from Lewis, he drove like one of the greats. A little frustrating he missed out on 2nd place...

    Ricciardo - Wow. I didn't know the guy had it in him! So good to see and against Alonso of all people...:slayer:

    Happy for Bottas, although not quite sure I agree with his engineers comments at the end of the race... 'We beat a Mercedes fair & square'. :embar:

    Damn! The one race I miss turns out to be great (a la Japan 2005). Will try to catch it on replay

    Woke up a bit early this morning and was just in time to start the race. Lewis charging from the back again. Have a feeling today is going to be another interesting one.

    Man. Best race of the season. I was on the edge of my seat the whole time. Really wish Lewis could have got by Alonso.

    Anyway, hell of a race.

    Ricciardo continues to impress. Alonso continues to demonstrate that he's the class of the field. Hamilton continues to thwart Mercedes' best efforts to deny him a championship.

    Vettel showed a flash of the luck he used to have.

    2 great races in a row. Hamilton, wow, what an effort. Ricciardo was excellent, but got lucky with some amazing timing. Vettel looks very Jenson Button right now.
