    A really good race (if you ignore Mercedes). I do wonder what Vettel was thinking. Is he past his sell by perhaps?

    I think he’s been flattered by the red bull in the past. He’s not a great wheel to wheel racer and 4 seasons at the front in clean air I think made his ability seem better than it was.

    Don’t get me wrong he is a great driver when he’s got a massive advantage or in clean air. But as we have seen time and again when racing other cars/drivers of similar/better ability he makes rookie mistakes.

    LeClerc appears to have far better race craft and I think Ferrari have to make a decision soon as to him being the no.1 over Vettel.

    Still a good race if you don't ignore Mercedes (this is after all a Mercedes Forum and we have all bought into the brand for good reason, their engineering is capable of out shining all competition). Lewis brought a good fight to Bottas in an identical car, it is not their fault that the likes of Ferrari et all have become "also rans". If Mercedes up their game with road going designs perhaps people will stop buying Ferrari and McClaren road cars as inferior products
