Incredible stuff from Lewis at the end.


Runs turns 4 wide 29 times in a row, nothing happens. Verstappen runs wide once, gets told to give place back. Incredible stuff indeed. Not to mention Verstappen was ahead going into that corner.

on another note, Yuki Tsunoda looks a decent driver. First race and already into the points.

Ha - it was definitely odd how they were enforcing track limits on that turn in particular, but I agreed with the stewards in that instance...you can't have all four wheels totally off track while passing. The fact that Hamilton was able to defend as well as he did on those tires was pretty impressive. As Seb once said "if you're a woman getting a massage like [Hamilton] treats his tires, it's just pure magic."  :D

Tsunoda looked great all weekend - will be fun to see him compete in the midfield!

That's because Horner tried to call Mercedes out and it back-fired  :D :D :D :D

Wow. Race 2 at Imola was amazing! If the rest off the season is this close it will be classic year.

Lando was as superb as Bottas/Perez were terrible. Lewis and Max are a class apart.

More rain please  ;)

He took a thump.  High-risk strategy if we has damaged the gear-box....But it was very suspicious how massively he fucked up the turn into that corner....

But I like Leclerc a lot more than I do Max, so I've forgiven him already  :) :) :)

And Quartararo on pole too without red flags to help him! I’m ready to place a bet on the 2021 motogp champion!!

It’s been ages since motogp had a french champ...about time!
The journey is the objective.

What an absolutely insane race today - a welcome change after Monaco! Stinks for Max but so happy for Checo and Seb. How about Hamilton’s ‘marathon not a sprint’ comment

insane race. last 2 laps were unexpected. sad for Charles but nice to see a refreshed podium. absolutely over the moon to see Vettel back on the podium!!

Hamilton sliding off the track reminds me of sol Campbell's never ending slide tackle against Croatia

What an epic win. Max taking it on to two worldclass drivers from a worldclass team and taking the win because he was the best.  #33 #gomax #keeppushing

It was an epic win, no doubt and I m thrilled for Max.  He raced an impeccable race, in a great car and he deserved the win.  But being British, I'm letting my bias root for Lewis to get an 8th world title...

This is a very special year, one to cherish in my opinion, two outstanding drivers in comparable cars battling for the world title.
