Despite everything this was actually a pretty good race. Great freaking drive from Verstappen. I knew the red bulls would be strong today but I was not expecting that. Vettel pretty much did everything he could. Could have been a lot worse for him today. And WTF stroll at the end??

I really think it was vettel who drove into him. Otherwise it was pretty much as good of a day as could be expected for him. That battle with Riccardo in the final laps was pretty good to watch.

Not a bad birthday performance from Verstappen either. I think hamilton was not pushing as hard as possible just to make sure the car stayed together this year

Yeah when they were all in the cooldown room Im pretty sure i heard Hamilton say something like "I couldve closed the door if i wanted to" talking about when Max overtook him, but he knew it just wasnt worth the fight

As for the vettel/stroll contact, unlike singapore im not so sure vettel is mainly to blame here. While he didnt leave stroll a TON of room, stroll was still way far away from the apex, and i saw one shot where it looked like he clearly drifted over into vettel. But for all i know they could have BOTH turned into each other. So i guess its just one of those things. at least it happened after the race. It was kinda neat how vettels tire popped up and was just resting neatly on the back of his engine cover

Any word yet from the stewards about any penalties from that contact? I even heard possible grid penalties if his gearbox got damaged

I havent seen anything yet. And god I didnt even think of that. They pretty much put ALL new parts in that car since he was starting from the back anyways....now it could all mean nothing.

Also, Im PRETTY sure Buxton does a couple bumps of coke before he walks the grid I get such anxiety attacks when I watch that segment. The grid is always so PACKED to where you can barely move, and he's just bounding thru at light speed jumping all over the place. His cameraman is a rockstar. I have NO idea how he can keep up w/ him without just plowing thru people or tripping over cables or getting run over by cars (which almost happened today)

Stewards will take no further action. They see both drivers as equally at fault.

I think thats probably the best call. While i do feel stroll probably turned into him more, vettel still couldve taken that turn a tiny bit wider, Stroll maybe didnt see vettel creep alongside him, but vettel definitely knew stroll was there

Wow. Haas says $600,000 in damages to Grosjean's car in that Sepang drain crash.

Yeah, that was freakin crazy. And dang, he was going 170 when he hit that? I was guessing at least 150.

Looks like ESPN is taking over broadcasting from NBC for 2018.

Didnít F1 give the team special permission to fix the car and change critical parts without a grid penalty?


Also, any word on if vettels car needed a new gearbox and hence a grid penalty on the next race?

Hmm. I wonder who they will have for the broadcast team?
With a lot if people dumping ESPN from their cable, is this a good move? F1 tv ratings have never set the world a fire.

I'll be in Suzuka this weekend with my son and am looking forward to the extended time at the track. Planning on half of Friday and all day Saturday and Sunday. There's an amusement park right next to the track that should be fun.

Good lord.

I'd like to just take this moment to congratulate Hamilton on his 4th world title championship.

Look for Ferrari's announcement after this race that they are shifting development to their 2018 car.

Its just crazy to me how nonchalantly these cars take the 130R chicane. Like its nothing at all And watching them go thru the esses it looks like i accidentally pressed the fast forward button.

A very disappointing season for Ferrari, especially since the summer break. They better get their act together for next year.
