Max is having a cracking race, it’ll be nice to see a different team winning other than Mercedes in all honesty. Gasly seems to be dropping further and further back, now 50+ seconds down on Max.....

That is a bad state of affairs for Gasly.

Ahead of Verstappen on lap 1, soon to be lapped by him.

You really do have to wonder when they’ll say enough is enough with Gasly, he’s just not ready for the Red Bull drive at the moment. Could be an amazing end to this race, Max quickly closing on Leclerc and might get on his gearbox with a lap or two to go, same with Vettel and Hamilton.

Well I have been saying that Red Bull would win before Ferrari :lol:

Insane race though, regardless of what happens in the last couple of laps, I adore F1 when its like this :wub:

Guarantee that such a great battle in the last few laps will be ruined by that overtake becoming a penalty.

Well its under investigation :dread:

That’s perfectly fine in my opinion, hard and fair racing which is what I imagine every F1 loves.

It would be pretty funny if they penalised him.

Seemed a bit aggressive to me, not enough for a penalty, but I can see why it’s being investigated.

Wish Le Clerc had held on, massively prefer him to Max.

I much prefer Max these days, he’s matured a hell of a lot since he pushed Ocon back in Brazil last year, Great race from both of them though, Vettel was really close to getting Bottas at the end as well. Shouldn’t be a penalty but then again I didn’t think Vettel should have got a penalty in Canada.

I would agree if the stewards weren't so anal about the Vettel/Hamilton incident. In this case Verstappen pushed LeClerc off the track for no reason so think he will be in trouble.

Don’t the rules say you can’t push another driver off track when overtaking? If so surely it’s a slam dunk penalty

Good, would have been a shame had a hard yet ultimately fair move in my opinion been awarded a penalty affecting the result.

Great drive from Max, Leclerc drove a solid race too.

Nice to finally see someone else win for a change too, plus it's the first win for Honda since 2006!

If it were up to me I’d either put Kyvat back in and see how he fares or bring in one of the drivers who got left without a drive from last year or see if JEV fancies a crack back in F1.
