    Hey Seb, do you have any other talents?

    Doesn't appear that racing is your thing any more, man. Why don't you become a painter, or a writer....or something?

    I know Seb has been driving silly for two seasons now. There is no excuse and honestly he should bow out. I do genuinely feel for the guy. This season has got to be torture for him.

    I agree with you apart from the soft in Q2 thing... Leclerc mentioned that this was the plan from the beginning, has nothing to do with whether Vettel needed them or not...

    There's a long tradition of drivers covering for Ferrari's blunders. :p

    Although if Merc was planning a 2-stop (not counting a convenient SC ;)), then Ferrari might have gone that route -- even though both Merc and RB went mediums.

    Binotto said they will keep on favouring Vettel in any 50/50 situations,as long as Vettel is ahead on points ..i hope once Leclerc pulls ahead they finally wake up and back the right horse ,not the lame donkey.

    I enjoyed today's race - wasn't a yawner in my opinion - regardless of which team/driver you may support. Some great overtakes, stupid crashes, etc.

    So should we discuss that MV left the track 100m prior to the shunt and gained an advantage? Just saying. :) go easy on me!!!

    Thought it was very noble of Binotto to be interviewed as well, his body language tells me he clearly looks deflated...hopefully not defeated. But 10/10 for a better attitude than MA.

    And last season... and the season before. Really makes me wonder what the real potential of the last years' cars where when you see what Leclerc is doing with this year's car.

    Binotto was convinced (by Vettel) they were going to be nowhere at Silverstone and yet Leclerc was within a tenth of pole!

    They really have their heads up Vettel and they need to smarten up quickly to the fact Leclerc is the coming man although I believe the team members knew this already. It's the guys in charge that need to wake up.

    I have little to zero confidence in Binotto in his current role as well. They should have never let Binotto out of the lead technical role. That’s where he truly shines. I get very irritated with his silly IG posts constantly telling me so softly and kindly how we AREN’T winning. Myself along with every tifosi around the globe are quite aware that Ferrari aren’t winning. I will only support Binotto in a team if we start winning.

    Agreed. Primarily due to also-ran drama.

    Generally watch any event to see who wins, little idiosyncrasy of mine. Didn’t realize there was a large contingent who are keen bronze worshippers. ;)

    3 major mistakes from the Ferrari team today in my opinion.

    1. Slow first pitstop for CL, such that Verstappen got in front. If you already have a bad car, a bad strategy team, at least get the pitstops straight....
    2. Not giving CL a pitstop right after the safety car.

    3. Crashing of Vettel.

    Unfortunately Ferrari followers who have been watching F1 races to see who wins, have been forced to 'worship' bronze and silver for far too many years :( Of late, I'll take what I can get - especially when the also-rans provide a lot of close racing, which hasn't been the norm.

    Seb has always driven this way when in close quarters. He was lucky Ferrari chose to mimic Webber’s strategy to clinch his first title. When he has a front-running car, he is flawless.

    I disagree that Hamilton is the same way. Remember that he has won the Mano-a-Mano battles with Seb the last two years and he certainly has shown skills as a racer throughout his years with McLaren (prior to Merc dominance)(I’m assuming you reference Ham because Bottas has no WDC’s and Kimi is not in a great car)

    I thought they had the wrong tyre choice but as it turned out they were able stay in contention with Red Bull, had they started on the mediums then the Red Bull's would have jumped over them. CL did a brilliant race and had KR been there then they would of had a miserable day. CL is the future
