Not sure about honest. He forces LeClerc off the track when he's required to leave space. Still, a way more exciting race than last week and it's good to see Mercedes struggling for once this year.

Well Max gets away with a rule violation and Ferrari gets screwed again.

I'm sure Ayrton Senna would agree.

I find interest in today's Formula One just not in following the Mercedes / Ferrari. For me IMHO most interesting things and real struggle happen in lower segment of peloton. For example I follow with interest for my compatriot's Daniil Kvyat races - maybe he doesn't have the glory of multiple World champions but he shows great races too - with races of the kind when he starts 15-th and finishes 9-th. That's more interesting for me than guessing what Mercedes's pilot would be the next champion.

The only way Mercedes aren't likely to win is when it is down to car problems or driver mistakes.

Yep, and another Mercedes one two today. They are almost unstoppable and now Red Bull has come on par with Ferrari which made for some great racing and some bad racing too. What the hell happened to Vettel! It's like Max caught him daydreaming for an easy pass and then Seb got rattled and lost his cool. I think Ferrari is going to find another driver next year.

Then there is Romain Grojean screwing up yet again and this time taking out his team mate. Haas needs to dump him even though I like him.

Hamilton is now somewhere in the region of a 39 point lead which can be overcome but I highly doubt it unless Vettel decides to become a little 'careless' in his racing tactics.

Daniil Kvyat performed one of his best races - just like I've told recently - failed qualification, started race in the end of peloton and finished 9-th )))

Only into the tenth lap of the German F1 but Hamilton is leading in a Mercedes one two.

Mercedes imploded for once and Vettel made the podium from a P20 start. Max proves he's one of the top drivers and congrats to Danil Kvyat for a stellar race. Sad for Lance Stroll and Racing Point just missing a podium finish and a good result for Haas even though the drivers had another incident.

Win for Honda and another loss for Renault. Fun race.

Well poor Max loses from pole by maybe just one strategy mistake by not pitting for tires when he had just enough gap after Hamilton pitted. The gamble to gain a bit of time while Hamilton's tires were cold had just the opposite effect and pitting would give the lead away then.

Great race for the middle and back teams with only one retirement for Haas with a water pump issue. Grojean again maintaining his luckless streak and Bottas has a bad race riding his poor luck as well. Ferrari just a bit of the pace as expected. Kvyat has another great drive and Russel climbed out of the back giving Williams a good race.

Good clean race heading into the break!

Yesterday I saw almost every lap(70) of the Hungarian Formula One race.

When I entered it was 3/70 lap and the Dane - Kevin was number 12 or something.

Had to leave for some minutes, when returning he was number 9.

watched until lap 35 when I had to leave for about 10 min.(preparing dinner)
When I returned to watch the rest of the race-Kevin was number 14

He manage to gain one position.

I do not claim to know everything, but almost everyone except Kevin had top speed above 300 km/h on this long-thing
He had what I can remember a top speed around 250-260 on the same area.(I'm not into this formula, so I don't know what they call certain areas on a race track)

Makes me wonder if he don't like to put the pedal to the metal.

It's all so close today that there is little, but all important, time between everyone. Rules are changing and it's likely all teams will use the same wheels and brakes soon making the constructor even less important. I'm not sure I like where this is going, well yes, I am sure, but I think I don't like it even though I understand it.
