    What race are you watching? If you think this is bad, you've clearly never watched a Grand Prix before. F1 has always had racing like this

    Its not that you can't pass but you can't get close to anyone. No need for the snide comment. And yes I have watched F1 before various times.

    Maybe I'm judging too early.

    Well considering Vettel ran right up to Hamilton's rear wing early, and Stroll has been charging through the field, that's not even close to being true

    They actually nailed their strategy for once (so far)

    I will agree that the more aero oriented cars aren't the best idea, but this is far from bad. There's been way more action than any race from the early to mid 2000s

    Yeah but that was the very start of the race. They start out so bunched together. Once the field has a few laps to get spread out then you notice you can't get close to anyone. Stroll is the only example I will agree with. 1 car. Hamilton with new tires couldn't even get by Verstappen.

    Well Hamilton has been complaining about his tires since they put them on. I think he's having problems with his current set, hence why Verstappen drove away from him

    Now that they both have clean air, we'll see if he can close that 6 second gap. If not, he's definitely got a problem

    Awesome for Ferrari, hate it for Haas to have both cars out of the race.

    Shout-out to Massa in P6. So much for being washed up

    Solid, interesting race IMO.

    Always happy to see a Scuderia win.

    Is it just me or did I hear the crowd boo Hamilton as he walked on to the podium?

    Verstappen's interview I believe backed up my posts. "Once you get 2 seconds behind someone it is over, you can't do anything". It was cool seeing Vettel so excited to win. The announcers are saying that Mercedes now has competition this year, but I think it's too early to make statements like that after 1 race. What do you guys think?
