Looks like favorable weather for the Mercs, 20+ degrees cooler than Austria.

Agree it looks like business as usual for Merc unless Ferrari can piece it together with their tyre strategy and they also have Max V as an added headache.

He has been making idiotic statements for the last 3 years or so already. It started with an F1 race in the Middle East somewhere, when there was human right violation issues. Can't remember which one it was.

He is well known for his anti democracy views. Rich for someone who made his money in a democratic country......

Vettel looks like he is in 2014 Red Bull mindset, a defeated mentality.

Was thinking the same thing. Thankful for Leclerc being on the team instead of Kimi, in case he does give up for the season.

Ferrari looked solid and keeping pace in qualie even when on medium tires. What a disappointment For Vettel.

Merc teammates:

Looks like Hamilton’s tires started out a little cold

Lap 38/52....

And yet ANOTHER UNFORCED ERROR BY VET....sending VER airborne....VET ramming VER from behind under braking....one would think that VET would "read" that he was in dirty air by vitrue of being under VER's rear wing....and VET's front grip would be significantly compromised....

Meanwhile, LEC continues to make VET appear out of touch and not worthy of his seat in the Scuderia Ferrari....

It appears NASCAR (aka CRASHCAR) is on the phone to VET's manager....where swapping paint and ending in flames is the norm.

not much of a hard win for Ham.. great to see another record unfolding live..

Vettel made his move again.. 4 times world champion doing such things is probably is a first among all champions doing such incidents.. too many now.. he was still waving his hand to Max though after the race he ran to into Max's car and apologized..

it was the best race of the season i guess..

Emotional win for HAM. Going for fastest lap on those tires took some nerve.

WTF Haas, they're turning into a joke team. Jettison Grosjean please please please.

McLaren had an only okay day but they're 4th in the constructors, with nearly as many points now as they had at the end of last season. They're simply better than last year.

Red Bull had two top drivers in their cars for the first time this season. Interesting to see Gasly continue to find pace.

That’s two great races in a row, F1 getting fun again. It was great to see the young guns battling under the “new“ rules.

Am I the only one that thinks Max was way off line when VET ran into him? No VET fan and he deserved the penalty, but Max continues to drive VERY wide car. Similar to teammate RIC running into VER at Baku. He has the right to “cover” the corner, but don’t expect everyone to anticipate that.
