Wow! what a race.Hamilton won,
with Bottas 2nd and Max 3rd.... The title has almost been wrapped up this weekend as we move to Austin. A Hamilton track from the start.
Vettel comes home in a lowly 6th place and seems that his title chances are over with now a huge gap to Mercedes. What a drive from Daniel
from 15th to move to 4th. He has been voted ..."Driver of the Day".
The title will surely be secure in Austin for Hamilton as he wins his 9th victory of the season, compared to 5 for Vettel.
I'm so surprised at the mistakes taken by Ferrari, both team and driver. Just hope Charles can out perform Seb next year and win those Italian fans..
I'm not sure Vettel should take too much flak for his mistakes this weekend. He was forced to push by circumstance. He needed to be in a position to score big points if Hamilton had a problem.
(I think) Hamilton only needs to score 9 more points than Vettel in the US to mathematically wrap up the title.
Ferrari have comprehensively -- with some help from their no.1 driver -- shot themselves repeatedly in the foot from Germany onwards. Spa must rank as the only weekend where they didn't drop a bollock at some point.
What I don't get bout yesterday.....last lap Vettel slings in a quickest lap time,just to
show he had the pace.....Vettels trouble.. quick on a clear track,but not a great racer..
Hams both, that's why he wins.....be interesting see them swap cars....
Ham and Verstappen ,streets ahead when it come to racing...Verstapps got a bit of the Senna
in him....I ain't slowing, you can if you want...
I think barring first lap and pit stops...he just can't get passed the Mercedes and even struggles
with the Red Bulls....not entirely his fault that one,you do have to cut someone up to get
passed these days,makes overtaking usually borderline.
Good point made Nev bout Ferraris new found pace...than lack of it.....
