The positives:- Lewis Hamilton was faultless. Think he + Mercedes are the coolest combination, which will help them win it all.- Pierre Gasly is absolutely scary when everything goes well for him. Legit scary. I thought he was the Driver of the Day, but it should make zero sense for him to be that fast, for such a long stint, on ultrasoft tyres. Gasly wasn't even that much slower than the top-6. I once said that I didn't rate Gasly based on his GP2-season and I was wrong, really **** wrong. Pierre Gasly is the future. Him and Charles Leclerc are two of the most exciting talents in the sport and it could be legendary if everything goes well.The negatives:- Valtteri Bottas was pathetic today. Absolutely pathetic. Vettel had completely passed him, yet he went braindead and only failed in ruining Vettel's race through sheer luck. Not only that, with a broken front wing, he then nearly killed Ricciardo's race in the most obvious turn of events. I didn't think Bottas would've been stupid enough to try and outbreak Ricciardo when he's on the outside, because he would've never made that corner and that's exactly what happened. If one of the two couldn't finish the race, I would've said it was black flag worthy. 10 seconds seems way too lenient for me.- Ferrari are idiots. Vettel was 25 seconds ahead of Bottas, approached traffic, lost 5 seconds and then they pitted him before he could've won that time back. Bring Vettel in before that happened, he comes out ahead of Bottas and maybe, just maybe, he could've challenged Hamilton. Also, Vettel is kind of a choker. I don't think he's as cool or as consistent as Hamilton, which is funny, Hamilton tends to freak out on the radio. But Vettel is the one who drops in consistency when it's clutch time. Anyway, Ferrari were idiots. That's what's going to cost them. Genuinely stupid strategic decisions.- Renault. Sucks.
