Perez defending on Hamilton was top tier. What a fun couple of corners. And big shout out to Tsunoda, who kept Hamilton behind him for 7 laps at the beginning. Was especially impressive when Hamilton just sailed past almost everyone else so easily after he finally made it past Tsunoda.

Vettel trying out the slicks was pretty hilarious. Had to feel bad for him, though.

Fun race.

Ham going off on the radio at the end made me laugh. Kind of seems like he should have just stayed out tho...

I thought the same until I heard Toto's interview with SkySports. Sounds like he was going to finish 5th regardless of their choice. Perhaps one position better if they had pitted earlier when they first wanted Lewis to box and gotten through the graining a few laps earlier.

Pretty sure Ham would have still ended up 5th based on how fast LeClerc got run down before he boxed. So I agree with the above, I just would have liked to see Ham battle Perez and LeClerc instead of them getting the pass for free.

Vettel on the slicks was definitely the best. That was hilarious

Love seeing things fail so spectacularly, so quickly.

Also, found this decision incredibly weird. I cannot believe Gasly got 5s for what was clearly a T1, lap 1, textbook racing incident. Meanwhile, we've got Hamilton hogging the entire racetrack trying to get past Perez... nothing.

Hamilton is a favorite; it's very clear. Even Crofty asking "did Lewis give Perez too much room?" and Button quickly coming back and saying "if anything, Perez gave Hamilton too much room".

Side note: I really, really enjoy when recent former drivers are in the commentary box. Always love hearing Button's and Rosberg's opinions on things and their breakdowns of strategy and such.
