So Haas are sticking with K-Mag and Grosjesn which has surprised me, Kubica leaving Williams at the end of the year has not sadly. Wonder if Hulkenberg will be able to grab a seat at Williams or maybe Alfa if they don’t fancy Giovinazzi for 2020 and its not like Mick Schumacher is ready for F1 yet.

Decent qualifying all in all, Ferrari’s upgrade worked really well. Leclerc, Hamilton, Vettel, Verstappen and Bottas is a decent top 5. Vettel was looking good but then he didn’t improve on his second lap and Leclerc and Hamilton pulled out a blinder.

Leclerc is becoming a qualifying monster for Ferrari. Hope he can get another race win tomorrow.

Vettel must be under a lot of pressure given his teammates performance of late.

He really is on top form at the moment, seemingly with an answer for everything Vettel throws his way.

Been a bit of a boring start, everyone just saving tyres for the first 15 laps barring Ricciardo.

I have the race on but completely muted so I don't have to concentrate on it - looks like a snooze-fest so far.

Yeah you’re not missing much, they really should impose a 2 stop rule for this race, just so we don’t have this constant tyre saving farce.

It's really gooseberry fool. I'm turning it off after this stop shakes out.

Got a bit better in the second half, really hoping Vettel can hold on for his first win of the season here.

He seems annoyed, hopefully Ferrari would put a stop to that before it even gets to that point though.

3rd safety car, definitely not getting to the 61 laps here.

Doesn't do much for Vettel that win in my opinion. Didn't overtake anyone that mattered, won it on strategy at expense of team mate, didn't really need to defend as cars on any kind of par can't overtake.

After the past couple of races where all the media has been writing him off I think he’ll just be delighted to get a win.

On the podium, Vettel looked like a guy that knows it's over. He basically only won because the team handed him the victory. I honestly wouldn't be surprised if he retired at the end of the year. I think he knows deep down, that he has to improve so much just to beat Leclerc, that his championship winning days could be over.

Not a great race, but Formula 1.5 saved it from being a complete snoozefest.
