Cracking drive by Lewis.

I wouldn’t say cracking drive, I’d say Mercedes got their strategy better than Red Bull. Had they reacted earlier on that first stop it wouldn’t have been that close at the end.

Disagree, those last ten laps or so showed his true class. Superb consistent driving to keep Max in the clearly faster car behind.

It was a good drive not cracking. A cracking drive was Perez starting from the pit lane and finishing 5th.

Not taking anything away from Perez but to not say that was a brilliant drive from Lewis is laughable, the way Perez carved through the field to get to 5th just reinforces that fact but enough of this.

Great drive from the rookie Yuki Tsunoda and Norris also had a great race.

One of the best drives from Hamilton for ages. Shapes up nicely for a really good competitive season. Wonder if Mazespin will manage to complete a lap?

It was good but not brilliant. Think we will have to agree to disagree on that one.

Agree on Tsunoda and Norris. Think Norris will get a few podiums this season if he carries on and maybe even a win.

You're like my Son Ricey - he can't praise Lewis for anything either :Smile:. That WAS a brilliant drive by Lewis

Used to love F1 back in the good old days of Prost, Senna, Mansell, Hill, Schumacher. I've not really watched it since Button won his World Championship.

I'm not the biggest fan of Sir Lewis Hamilton. He's very good at driving a good car around a track, and i'm sure he does a lot for the sport and charity work etc But i just can't warm to the guy.

When he retires and the races are a bit more wheel to wheel action rather being decided by pit lane strategy I may return.
