Vettel takes Drivers Championship lead

Boring race, 1 safety car very early otherwise all about the start where nothing really changed and then tyres and pit stops.

Hamilton on an old, 7 race engine, .. new engine was not raced as intended with potential problem found. Hamilton also had early problems with overheating.

Has to be said Vettel and Ferrari looking good....

Red Bull did well but not up to taking the winner whilst Bottas had to work hard to keep his 2nd place in the last laps.

ImageEasy to consider past and present, it's the future and associated plan and strategy to achieve that takes the talent ..

3 GPs in a row now.

France this weekend, then Austria then us.

This is something that's never been done before - it is going to be tough for everybody.

When the drivers touch down in Le Castellet for the French Grand Prix, an unfamiliar challenge awaits them – Formula 1’s first ever triple header. This race kicks off three races in a row and given how hotly-contested the season has been so far, it's a potentially crucial period…

Unknown territory

Three races in as many weekends is a first in the F1 championship since its inception way back in 1950, and that’s what makes this run a mouthwatering prospect. Back-to-back races have become the norm – there were five in last year’s calendar - but never before has the paddock had to travel immediately from one country to another, and then another.

So for the drivers and teams, these races in France, Austria and Great Britain could perhaps be make-or-break for their season. In particular, the trio fighting for the constructors’ title – Mercedes, Ferrari and Red Bull – will want to avoid any mishaps at all costs. One poor result could give their rivals the momentum, and with a trio of Grands Prix taking place in such a short period of time, that could prove vital.

There’s all to play for in the midfield battle too. With just 37 points splitting fourth-placed Renault and eighth-placed Haas, it’s extremely tight. McLaren, Force India and Toro Rosso are also in the mix for that P4, and this particular scrap could have a clear leader post-Silverstone.


Cor blimey, it's gonna be tough.
