  1. What could have been? Mercedes clearly the better on the SS, but man Verstappen got close with the undercut and the softs. Hamilton got unlucky and then very lucky with traffic twice, once with Bottas and at the end with Massa and Alonso. What could have been? On balance the result is probably fair. Feel robbed from an epic final lap fight though by Alonso’ insane stubbornness and selfishness.

    1. Also something to be said for Bottas, who would have had a podium if Mercedes hadn’t used him to parry Verstappen. He’s never escaping number two status.

  2. Robbed of a classic championship fight by Ferrari’s failured to gve Vettel a reliable car 2 races in a row… When Vettel could’ve had 2 wins out of those races.
    And then this race, robbed of a fight for the win by backmarkers not getting out of Max’s way. (Although it was Renault v Mercedes so he probably couldn’t have overtaken anyway, but then again, it is Verstappen).
    What can Vettel do. The stars have aligned for Hamilton this year, everything’s gone his way, and he’s won the title pretty much. Sigh. I was so looking forward to a showdown in Abu Dhabi with them very close on points.
    And Hulkenberg with yet more bad luck… How are they supposed to catch Williams and Toro Rosso in the constructors when he’s lost over 20 points in the last 3 races alone. And the DRS stuck open as well, not even a normal retirement.
    I may be very crabby because I had to wake up so early but still…

  3. Both Vettel and Ferrari have thrown away too many opportunities this season. Ferrari on Vettel’s hands would have had the better race pace, and could have massively undercut Mercedes. And throw in the very fast Redbulls, and Mercedes could have had serious strategy confusion.
    Hamilton can now afford to go all out in the next 2 races, take huge risks, something I wasn’t expecting since before Singapore.
