    Seems a few teams are thinking the meds are faster than softs?

    --- Edit: Seems, for Ham, they are.

    Is the sidewall stiffness different as well as tread grip?

    Lewis just destroyed Bottas. Nice.

    And tomorrow he'll break MS' record of wins.

    History in the making. Incredible.

    Well, Lewis got out in time to make two runs. Bottas only got one hot lap.
    The meds might take two hot laps to get "sweet".

    Ah, Bottas says he opted for less fuel instead of two laps on meds.

    Should be an interesting race, where getting the tire "sweet spot" isn't as much of a factor.

    Well done Charles, and the engineers who have given a dog of a car some legs.
    Hats off to Lewis, it would be churlish not to say so.
    And Seb, take the rest of the season off my friend, somebody could be using that seat to get us constructors points.

    I wouldn't say "destroyed", Bottas is just behind.

    leclerc dragged that dog across the line in 4th - pretty spectacular frankly.
    meanwhile, the german boat anchor comes in 15th......

    Vettel FINALLY admits post interview that Leclerc is on another level.

    Most of us here knew that since 2019.

    Seb and finishing the season with "dignity". Only thing keeping him driving until the end of the season is financial reasons with his contract.

    It must be that. His heart isn't in it, obviously. They must be fuming at Ferrari.
    I wonder if the move to Aston Martin next year will revive his enthusiasm for racing.

    Could be an interesting race with most of the grid being lapped, with limited overtaking points such as T1 with the tricky pit exit.

    I used 'destroyed' because obviously Lewis was toying with Bottas all weekend long: Bottas got fastest time for every session and then comes Lewis and just goes faster. Must be a kick in the groin for Bottas. Also ended any hopes for his WDC run. Maybe next year... :)
