    So Mercedes Benz is so far ahead of everyone else that, even when they finish 2nd and 3rd, it's considered a big failure!? Wow!!

    It is clear to me the problem was V-Botas , at the start of the race he defended hard against Lewis and killed his tires after 2 laps ,,, but when it came to max overtaking him he not defensive ,, he just give up easily,, meanwhile Lewis will defend his position even with blistered tires against Max ,,, Botass should look in the mirror if he want to blame the team as he was the weak element on race day because if Lewis was on pole he would of made a good 10sec gap on max before tires gave up ,,, look what he did to keep second place made his Botass look like a arse again ...

    It's all about the tyres... but how often are you going to get hot temperatures that affect they're tyre degradation... plus turning down the mercedes 10% means they can still win a race with the right strategy

    Merc are you in charge of F or are you paying tge FIA so. Every modification on yor cars only for you not for other teams. You guy's leave much to be desired. Hamikton tells yoy what to do, good example , Cars must be black political reasons in motorsport. Other drivers to be on one knee. Absolute disgrace to Fi

    F1 should have some strict rules around both drivers having equal preference.. they are literally breaking a driver's strength.. this is not good for the driver.. Max has shown ,even if they don't have the top car he has the skills to beat Hamilton.. Most unfit character to race is Hamilton..Nico has beaten Lewis in the past Vettel has done that as well.. worst team principal is Ferrari's Mattio ...

      Nonsense. The objective of Formula 1 is to win a) the World Driver's Championship and b) the constructor's championship. Fairness or equity have nothing to do with winning, which is what Toto and Lewis have proved themselves to be superb at. Formula 1 is not a knitting competition.

      Of course anyone can do it. That's why Mercedes pays Hamilton an absolutely massive pile of money to do something that anyone could do. Why don't you offer to drive the car for half the money. Do you think that would be a tempting offer? Hamilton is a much better driver than Bottas and everyone knows that. It's inevitable that Mercedes prioritises Hamilton. Has it ever occurred to you to wonder why Mercedes wants Lewis to drive their car in the first place? It's because they know that Lewis is the best driver out there.

    If you look deeply into the race, Valterri was actually the one who got the optimal strategy for him, he has been given the chances to take the lead twice, but he neither manage to defend nor attack max successfully... he got passed so easily that Max hardly felt any pressure on it... really i don't think he should blame the team in this case

    Bottas was pitted the same time as Verstapen, it is his job to catch up with redbull which he could not. Strategy wise it is the the risk and the correct way, leaving him out will further ruin their race, better to take gamble. If he was able to catch redbull then he is number 1 but he is just slow to be honest.
