    If not all the taken points from Daniel in Australia he would be just 51 points behind Rosberg… great stuff. Such a pity that he wasn’t at Red Bull for the past 4 years.

      If we are going to do “if onlys” don’t forget the 3 wheel/unsafe release that ruined 2 races for him as well.

      What a silly statement, why not give both Merc drivers all their points they lost aswell.

    • I agree with the first remark that alone would give the championship some life not to mention the tribulations at Malaysia. Your 2nd remark though is completely unfounded, completely different cars in 2014.

      I’m surprised by the pace of Ferrari. The race pace of most of the grid has been slightly different ever since, unfortunately the Force Indias didn’t show their race pace for comparison. Lewis suffered with the rears whilst Alonso with one more lap and on the softs was struggling with the fronts, anyway at different stages of the GP Alonso was relatively quick with old softs which proves in my opinion some improvement from Ferrari, their traction is improved and perhaps in slow tracks their electrical boost works more effectively. RBR still struggled with top speed and they weren’t faster than the mercedes in any sector not even on the middle one so I guess no team is eking out on the Mercedes but I do believe they are pushing to the limit in many fronts, as shown today. In the end I still believe that in normal circumstances Mercedes is first, followed by Williams and then RBR that has Ferrari as close as they’ve been all year round.

    Who cares championships today?

  3. Certainly not saying it’s going to happen as I think the Mercedes are too strong… but Ricciardo is only a race win and an Abu Double away from the WDC lead. Would be interesting to see how Mercedes react to their dominance being threatened if Ricciardo can be close to the top in the coming races as well.

    No one can defend Ros being told to be let past criminal it was. Nico did not even have a look under breaks. Clearly Ham was lucky with saftey car, but i would rather he had chance to fight for pole he could took 7 that way. Ham should have stayed out another 2 more laps and went on the softs he had great lide when he pitted mediums, look at diff with Ham overtaking Vergne, Ros was holding them all up.

      Nico if wasn’t hold up by baby Hami would have won this race.Clearly as day when we see where he finished in the end…in Hami gearbox.

        I think Mercedes have quite the bank of constructors points and Lewis is fighting for a world championship. Rosberg wasn’t even in a position to overtake, unless you really expected Hamilton to lift for an entire second or two and play right into Nico’s strat while undermining his own.. Nico hanging out behind JEV may have hurt him more than seeing Hamilton’s backside. Well played Lewis. Lady Luck seems to be bipolar.

      • Dan said on 27th July 2014, 15:45

        @dex022 Lol Ros would have had to overtook Ric good try my friend. You call Ham the baby? Think you missed the radio today. Ros could not even overtake Vergen with DRS, ham done it with non DRS

    Obviously their is no conspiracy and it’s a waste of television airspace and internet bandwidth to even start suggesting there is – after all, for every failed brake or failed engine there is a gearbox failure for your team mate or a fortuitous safety car period to benefit from during the race.

    I am just hoping we have some relatively normal pole position shoot-outs and more on-track battles between the Mercedes pair in the concluding part of the season.

    • William Stuart (@williamstuart) said on 27th July 2014, 15:45

      Yeah there’s been far too little of that through one circumstance or another. However I don’t think Rosberg really deserved a higher grid slot than Hamilton, as he couldn’t get close on newer tyres despite those ridiculous team orders that would’ve only served to aide the conspiracy theorists that Mercedes hate Lewis. Great drive from the whole of the podium, all deserved their result, I just hate how Lewis sulks on the podium, it’s so childish he gained 18 places and finished ahead of Rosberg, if you’d given him that before the race he would’ve been overjoyed with it.

      • David Moondi said on 27th July 2014, 16:21

        Only a looser will be happy (fighting for wdc). He knows deep down that he lost the opportunity to win this. Let’s just assume that he didn’t have to nurse the medium tires and switch to soft at the same time as Rosberg. You can see an opportunity here. Both Alonso and Ricardo are very happy because this is a rare thing for them.

  6. I wish Hamilton was happier on the podium. Chin up mate, he chipped points of Nico and at this stage if he keeps doing that he’ll win. Speaking of Nico, he better hope Hamilton’s qualifying issue’s don’t stop because overtaken is looking like a serious gap in his arsenal.

    Kimi’s contribution today is obvious in the WCC !!!

  8. Nick (@npf1) said on 27th July 2014, 16:05

    Sauber had a massive opportunity today. Both Force India’s retired, both McLaren’s (which ultimately didn’t finish that much higher up) had strategic errors, Grosjean retired and Maldonado was nowhere. Still, they finish outside of the points with one car while the other retired.

    If they won’t score at races like this or Monaco, I honestly don’t see them scoring at all this season.

    Nice to see Nico still a head of Hamilton.
    Even though Hamilton fans tend to forget about it the championship often.

    • lol.

      Rosberg should have extended his lead to way beyond 20+ points today, even 30+. But Hamilton reduced the lead having had his car in flames the day before and starting from the pit laned.

      Scared mate? ;]

    You’ve got to hand it to Ricciardo for always being there when it matters, but this is one of those races again where fortune favoured him as others were faster.

    Though a great drive nonetheless, and a great guy!

    Taking into accpunt that Alonso is free to leave FERRARI IF RED TEAM DO NOT FINISH BETWEEN THE BEST THREE (CONSTRUCTOR’S CHAMPIONSHIP) I doubt we will see another performance like today’s one. NEXT YEAR HE WILL BE BACK IN MCLAREN.

  12. AldoH said on 28th July 2014, 12:51

    To me, it’s fantastic to see Williams only seven points behind Ferrari in the fight for third place. It’s a shame that Massa was unable to bring more points in recent races, but Valtteri is doing an awesome job. I was shocked to see both Williams enter the pits 24 laps from the finish and put medium tires, as I am sure both Massa and Bottas would be able to manage 24 laps with the softs.
