The Mercs won't get away so quick tomorrow I guess and with Max's increased top speed the dark side's black overalls will be full of SWEAT and the tyres ready for 'RUN FLAT' mode

My friend I couldn't agree more . As MAX says : The car runs very well , never felt better in this season . We can expect fireworks !

Max's moment to shine! Hopefully we'll see him on the top.

Bottas will fall back per usual, albon will make the podium, max will have technical issues and retire, ham will take 90th win

Gasly flop.

From his tumultuous victory at Monza, Gasly didn't make it past Q1 and it has certainly brought him back to earth with a bang.Not all HONDA engined cars are the same.

The plus is he has Alex by his side to back up the team to attack the Mercs rather than Max alone. Not sure of the plan..to do it at the start? or probably to wait and see how they behave after a while on those long fast curves. You think Leclerc will gradually fall behind and hopefully Seb will catch him up in race trim after Lec does his tyres in trying to keep up with the front runners.

Ineos wants Merc maybe

Bit of the subject but Ineos are rumoured by Eddie Jordan to have made a 700M shareholding bid for Merc though this is only for part of the Brackley based team. Ineos is a London based company and will probably buy the late Lauda's 10% share of Merc F1.Wolff himself owns 30% of it believe it or not while Merc owns 60%.
I guess Ineos won't be Hamilton's choice of part owners being a chemical company with his penchant for clean living.

Red Bull and Honda should go for a divorce if these engine problems continues this season...
Hamilton had a bad start as well so there is no trick with Bottas' launch system or something..

Bottas started the race too late..
i guess Bottas already passed the SC line before he went full throttle.. it ll be clear pretty soon if he did probably..
heard on the radio that they turned off the SC lights off too late!!!
