    No team could put up with the poor performance from Honda.

    This will shake up the grid in 2019

    Looks like Honda will have next season to sort themselves out before Red Bull and Torro Rosso use their engines.
    If they are still rubbish I'd expect Ric and Verstappen to move on and both Ferrari and Mercedes would welcome them both.

    I read somewhere today that Renault will no longer supply Red Bull from 2020, which fits in well with the TR/Honda collaboration. Let's wait and see if it's true.

    McLaren ditch Honda for Renault

    Sainz on loan to Renault

    Ferrari blaming Max.... Dear oh dear.
    Shame for Alonso, he had a brilliant start. Well done Lewis.

    No further action against any of them.

    It was Vettels aggressive action that caused it, but I think "racing incident" is the right decision - he would have no idea Kimi was there (fantastic start by him) and was trying to force Max to yield.

    Shame for Max, Kimi and Alonso. Seb - hahahahahahahahahahahahaha serves you right.

    Vettel is too arrogant for his own good.

    Racing incident yes....but Vettel was the trigger. Fortune sometimes favours the brave, in any other conditions a chop across Max would have guaranteed him the race lead. But a wet street track where there were going to be safety cars and other variables, a first corner lead would not have been overly critical and playing the long game would have been the perfectly sensible decision.

    Unfortunately Vettel has these Schumacher-esq moments where he loses his head. Thats the second one this season and one that could cost him the world championship, hopefully.

    BTW Lewis mentioned karma, I couldn't help but think that was a reference to Baku, where Seb also lost his head but had a net gain.

    Not seen the whole race but did catch the incident on Sky News on the ferry last night - I feel sorry for Verstappen. He was caught with nowhere to go. He would never have given way to Vettel (not in his nature) so I'm a little surprised Vettel even tried to muscle him out of the way like that. Serves Vettel right.

    Indeed. Vettel should know Vers better by now.

    I actually quite like Vettel, but he really needs to sort his Red Mist out!
