Maybe the Lewis of last year would have tried a do or die move for second?

Was it Kevin Schwantz who said if you can win you must win, if not you must finish?

Great drive and still the 50 pointer at the end of the season!!!

fourteenseven: mercedes slowest stops of the day were all on rosbergs car today

They could afford to lose a few seconds by taking their time, but they still couldn't afford a mistake if they rushed it:) Lewis OTOH needed everything to work so he could salvage second. 18 places with no contact? Not quite. 17 with some minor wing damage is still a good effort though. It just shows how much advantage those Mercs have this year.

Good Job Lewis!! Hard fought race, hard for me to watch even, very determined drive, cut somewhat short by the fumbling surrounding Sutil's car, hope Lewis can get a clean race/qualy next go around. Hard to watch the ending when you kind of know how it's going to play out. Good to know Williams/Toto are taking care of Bottas.

jamal. why should anyone have to rely on a safety car to gain places? thank goodness the stewards did not send out a safety car, and they allowed the cars to continue racing. sutils car was well off the racing line and double yellows were being waved. the drivers are able to cope with flag signals.

I thought lulu drove rather well today. Put in a decent effort and dealt with the broken wing instead of moaning. Well done.

Bottas and Ricciado really sparkled. Vettel and Alonso showed their skills.
Rosberg? No idea really - only saw him at the start and end.
A very fair top 6.

jamal. you implied that if a safety car had been used, then all the cars would have bunched up and lulu would have been on the tail of bottas, and able to get by quickly. if that is not what the mplication was, then i misread you. but as i said, tg that the safety car was not used, to create a different race.
