F1 races go like this

Lewis leading after turn 1: Race over
Anyone else leading after turn 1: Might get interesting



Around the Network

Just came here to say that Ferrari is garbage



So, another easy win for Hamilton then?

Hmm.. Easy, yeah. Not super easy though.

Another tyre situation nearly presented itself.

Ricciardo 4th... Fastest lap and only 3 seconds behind verstappen...

Cyril should be nervous about the tattoo at Monza. Renault straight line speed looking really good.



It's still crazy to me that Lewis is going to break all of Michael's records. I remember watching that domination back in the day as a kid, thinking surely there was no way, in a sport as unpredictable, and ever shifting as F1, that anybody could ever come close to 91 wins and 7 championships again. Yet here we are. Lewis is going to end his career somewhere probably well north of 100 wins, and at least 8 championships, by the looks of things. That's insane.

I wonder if Max will end up dominating the sport the same way once Lewis retires. Max is still so young, and yet already has so much F1 experience under his belt, it's really almost unfair for all his contemporaries.

It seems like that will depend a lot on the team he drives for. It's certainly possible, but you'd hope things aren't as one-sided in terms of car performance in the future. Without a superior car, it would still be possible, but much less likely.

Of course, that's why these records seemed so untouchable to me in the first place, but Max is quite ideally positioned atm. Whenever Lewis leaves, it's highly likely that Max will be viewed by every team on the grid as the best driver in the field, and he'll probably be able to go race for whatever team he wants for quite some time. If there was ever a driver positioned to have a chance at these types of records, it's probably him.

Much like you though, I'm of course hopeful that we'll ultimately see a more mixed up field of winners in the future. As cool as it is to see people make history, by the time Lewis gets done doing it, I'll have already seen that bar smashed twice in my time as an F1 fan. I'm ready for some more unpredictable years.



Well shit, who expected that result? Congrats to Gasly, and it's great to see somebody else win a race for a change. It's been what, 7 years or something, since somebody other than Mercedes/Ferrari/Red Bull won a race?

Bottas got embarrassed HARD today, jesus. Lewis ends up half a minute behind last, catches up, overtakes people left and right to get back to 7th in like under 20 laps....meanwhile, Bottas fucks up the start, and ends up stuck pretty much in place around 5-7th all race. Pathetic.

Happy for Gasly. What a year he's having after getting kicked out of RB last season. Good for him.

Great race.



I wonder if this will be the final nail in Albons coffin.

Might not happen this year but next?
