Daniel on pole.. What a great lap. :)
Vettel 2nd
Hamilton 3rd.

Verstappen's series of incidents have seriously dented his championship hopes:

* First, he over-drove in the first race of the season in Australia, ran wide and damaged his car and then spun, and finished sixth
* In Bahrain, he crashed in qualifying and then retired from the race after colliding with Lewis Hamilton's Mercedes
* In China, he lost a likely win by running wide trying to pass Hamilton and then colliding with Ferrari's Sebastian Vettel
*In Azerbaijan, he crashed in practice and then retired after being hit by team-mate Daniel Ricciardo. Both drivers were considered to blame for the incident but Verstappen's decision to make an illegal second move in defence was a contributing factor
*In Spain, he damaged his front wing lapping Lance Stroll's Williams after a safety car period but managed to continue to finish third
* Monaco, crashed heavily in qualifying. Will start last


Yes gotta sort himself out mate......this should have been a cracking year for red bull...
not that far off the pace of top 2.......bet Management aren't happy....
I know they love him but he's costing the team valuable points..........

Hamilton could leave the sport at the end of 2020.... According to rumours and David Coulthard

Apart from the start and Hamilton having a bit of a go at the end, it was just another boring procession. Pretty much like every F1 race ever since about 2014. This sport has been killed by over engineering, some truly awful circuit choices and nanny rules.

Middle groundhog: "It hasn't been a classic, has it? Not like that time Jenson Button drove through the field and the whole race lasted about three days."

Right groundhog: "Good episode of Morse, this. It's got a young Rachel Weisz in it."

Race over


Left groundhog: "Big weekend for Vettel, that. I wonder if he holds the balance of power in the title race now."

Middle groundhog: "Nah - once Mercedes get their engine sorted out, they'll be right back in it."

Right groundhog: "Anyone fancy the pub?"

Another dull one....highlights for me in future I think...

Gotta find a way of enabling overtaking.......seems to me it's got worse since the widening
of the cars.......who was the bright spark who came up with that,it IS a bit obvious...I know
there's other stuff involved but that aint helping...

6 cars all within half a second of each other,midfield not far behind.....should be a cracker.. :?
