Good to see that isn't it, TP?

Equal cars and equal talent can pay dividends - as long as the daft buggers don't keep banging into each other ...

Merc/Red Bull podium

Hamilton from the start/Bottas lost 2nd at start to Vettel but got 2nd with well driven 1 stop strategy/Verstappen cute Red Bull tactics 3rd and despite, again, touching Williams and breaking front wing but continuing.

Vettel 4th lacked pace, Ricciardo came fast at finish and took lap record 5th, Magnussen Haas well done 6th.

First lap mayhem 4 cars out ... caused by Grosjean (?) again? ...

Raikkonen's Ferraris engine probs ...

Hamoilton all the way, ...depended on whether Bottas could survive 1 stop strategy and whether Verstappen could contain damage. Ferrari disappointing.

Merc reassert themselves

That was chaos at the start as Grosjean does something stupid - again.

And now it has happened :-

Quote:
The controversial wing mirrors used by Ferrari at last weekend's Spanish Grand Prix have been banned by Formula 1.

The sport's governing body, the FIA, did not approve of the way the mirrors were mounted to the halo head-protection device on the car.

Teams may still mount mirrors on the halo following a rule clarification, but they must have only an "incidental or minimal" aerodynamic effect.


Quote:
The FIA felt Ferrari's mirrors gave them too much aerodynamic gain.
