After a great qualifying it looked like Bottas got his mojo back.
1. Bottas 2. Hamilton 3. Verstappen
Now the race
, Bottas retained top spot after 2 race starts, but Hamilton lost his 2nd place to Verstappen on the 2nd re-start. Now in 3rd place he managed to retake Verstappen and Bottas. Thought Bottas had his moments in this race and a lot better so far this year. I feel he cannot hang to the lead anymore and must play the wing man to Hamilton. As Hamilton finds extra gears in his momentum to keep the lead and win his 2nd this year. Bottas retains fastest lap and gains that extra point from Verstappen. Not a bad race and still worth watching.
Thought Ricciardo was doing well but dropped back to 9th place. Norris still in fine form finished 5th maintaining him and McLaren 3rd spot in the WC.
Perez doing better and it does seem he will play a good roll for Red Bull
Both Alpines doing well and could get better .
1. Hamilton (Mercedes)
2. Verstappen (Red Bull, +29.148)
3. Bottas (Mercedes, +33.530 and fastest lap)
4. Perez (Red Bull, +39.735)
5. Norris (McLaren, +51.369)
6. Leclerc (Ferrari, +55.781)
7. Ocon (Alpine, +63.749)
8. Alonso (Alpine, +64.808)
9. Ricciardo (McLaren, +75.369)
10. Gasly (Alpha Tauri, +76.463)
Another race next week
Think first time seen Ham Outraced in a while...Max's overtake early doors....but he more than made up for it....
Bottas is like Vettel a bit...Fast but not a Great racer...Lewis is top of tree for both,but think has a really important role this
year, maybe moreso than normal,he needs to separate Lewis from Max,by nicking as many seconds as he can,Lewis
needs to build up a little lead...otherwise a DNF by someone might decide the title this year...would imagine Red Bull
gonna win a good few more races,so will be a lot closer this year,if he is knocked down to 4th finishes,cos Perez will more
than push him..Constructors could be tight as well....But Happy to see Red Bull win that.
Good seeing Mclaren involved again...Norris is a star really enjoyed watching him come thru...Ricky seems to have lost his
Mojo a bit...thats a shame.
