And first race is over! Lucky but well deserved win for Ferrari, shame that Kimi was only third, but I can't much complain, this is a superb start for the season. Only problem is that if next race goes similarly, they drop Kimi openly to support role.

Magnificent qualifying from Lewis BTW, but third year in row, no banana. It was also nice to see Fernando back in Top 5, brilliant!

What was 'well deserved' about the Ferrari win?  It was just very lucky for Vettel courtesy of last years Ferrari...

Kimi is already in a support role, sadly its his job at Ferrari..

I was very saddened to see Kimi not allowed to race, in an overt attempt to justify Arrivebene’s team strategy.

Kimi was clearly capable of challenging and was deliberately hamstrung by politics.

C’est la vie.



Cordial Best,

Well deserved as in I don't want Merc to win and win and win and win, total snoozefest that.

Sure, i understand that but it doesn't make the win 'well deserved'..

Lucky.. what you wanted to happen.. fluky.. yes, well deserved, no!!

I am sure you don't see Kimi's result, after outperforming Seb all weekend, as well deserved...

I am not saying that at all, just that it was lucky rather than 'well deserved'..

But to repeat a pet hate of mine.... why do drivers (most drivers!) not find a place to park that will not affect the race.  Time and time again we see drivers just dumping their cars on the first bit of grass, leave the car with a 'oh woe is me' attitude and slink off feeling very sorry
for themselves....
It is like you or I braking down on the motorway and parking the car in the fast lane...

In the two Hass cases they knew immediately and the pit wall could have told the driver to stop even before they had regained the track..

Yes, i'm pretty disappointed in the result....  Laughing

The VSC decided the race, essentially.
