    I'm a little sad that Gasly did not get to feel the crowd at monza with the Italian anthem.

    It was also funny hearing McLaren post race. 2nd and 4th is super strong and they seemed disappointed. One more lap might have done it!

    No you are forgetting Olivier Panis, winner of Monaco GP 1996, I can recall that one painfully as I was visiting California, horrible time difference, -9 hours. 4am wake up to watch the race

    His objective(s) by going to the stewards' office is 100% irrelevant
    His job is to drive not to act as team manager
    The team manager's job is to be the interface between the drivers and the FIA
    His fast walk/ride to the stewards' office clearly demonstrated he did not simply want clarifications but instead he wanted to confront their decision
    He could have gotten clarifications later after the race, correct?
    What would he gain by getting clarifications right there, right then? Nothing
    It clearly shows ( to me ) his attitude is one of entitlement

    Did Gasly "chin" the opposition today?

    The halo seemed to have deflected some of those runoff tires from intruding into his cockpit and possibly smacking Leclerc's helmet.

    Entitlement? What? Look, he had the opportunity to talk to the stewards so he did. Nothing more, nothing less.

    Yup, that was brutally early wasn't it...in Florida the time difference was only six hours.
    I loved the day at the Skeets Dunne estate that Sunday in Rancho Santa Fe, paradise!

    You know, even if Hamilton was to find a cure for cancer tomorrow, some people would find something deregatory to say about him.
    The guy can do nothing right ...

    I don't care for his BLM politics and his dread locks but as a driver he is phenomenal and very soon the absolute GOAT.

    He clearly made a mistake today and paid the price for it. No biggie, made the race a lot more entertaining.

    Those were the days. As well as the spirited drive on the backroads of San Diego in 250 GT Spider California LWB. Weren't you driving the 335 S Pontoon #0764?

    Marc, I believe that Jeronimo GTO is referring to hearing the French and Italian national anthems for driver and team.

    Might you recall the last time the pits were initially declared closed WHEN an F1 Safety Car was dispatched by officials?

    That’s right. I remember it being a Pontoon-boded car you were behind the wheel of that day. We also had 0764 during those times - - hence my confusion . . .

    He can go to the stewards' office if he want to, drivers have done it before. He is a grown man. There is no rule that says drivers are not allowed in that area. He can do it 3 times next race if he wants, he can drop by to give them coffee, not a problem at all.

    Bottas issues as noted by Mercedes -

    Bottas reported a puncture, but the tyre pressure sensors didn't agree and there was no obvious damage to the car. There was a cooling problem on both Mercedes, but it was not limited to Bottas' car and was down to the team expecting cooler temperatures on race day rather than any damage or reliability issues.

    The team was able to open up the bodywork under the red flag period to ease the cooling issue, but the problem persisted until the end of the race. Hamilton managed to fight from the back of the field to seventh, Bottas was only able to make up one place on track after the restart when he overtook Kimi Raikkonen for fifth.

    After the race, the lack of performance was still something of a mystery.

    "Before being disappointed we have to find out what happened to the car," Wolff said. "The car didn't turn well into the right-hand corners. Valtteri thought he had a puncture but we couldn't see anything on the data and that's why we kept him out.

    "But on those right hand corners you could see that he was losing a few car lengths to the car in front. Obviously if that happens through Ascari and Parabolica even with DRS you cannot overtake. A driver wouldn't speak of a puncture right after the start if there wasn't anything."

    And wtf was he doing in the steward's office in the first place? GIO got the exact same penalty but you didn't see him running to the stewards like a drama queen.

    Lewis and Merc screwed up and got penalized (rightly so). It should have been left at that.

    Yes, but we are talking about Hamilton, so the dude can't resist having a pop at him on a forum, like if it really mattered.

    Nice to see a driver own up to a mistake.
    Although "pushed too hard on cold tires" was pretty obvious from the replay. ;)

    Most of the races start at 3 am for me!

    Now, as for the red X denoting a closed pit, why don't they use that damned electronic Heineken board above pit entry? Get rid of the adverts on that board and just have a color status on it. Green for open and red for closed.
