while having stopped counting the 10mins delays i just realized that bottas is the only good looking f1 driver these days...

Apparently about 60% chance of rain during the race today. Fingers crossed...

i have tears in my eyes. vettel is not only a hero, a fighter but also a history-maker and a true legend. dont get me wrong, folkz, you dont have to like this guy personally. but i have learnt. i following f1 since the 90s, have watched basically every race - with 2 or 3 exceptions - since 96 and was the heaviest and strongest shuey hater you could find. reasons? i know them now but they are gone.
you have to salute to super-seb. awesome driver. redbull has really really hit the jackpot with that guy. he is not about the money. he probably earns less than massa or rosberg. he is not buying a yacht but prefers to go swimming (his own words).
if - and thats an if - he can keep his modest and down to earth way of doing things, shueys 7 titles are in heavy danger now. i just think of myself. if i would become an f1 driver, lets say i get the right car, win a title or even 2, get the money i ever wish, probably i WOULD buy a yacht, i would doing silly photoshootings for wannab model agencies, record a rap album, would drive the best ferrari, the best mercedes and lambo sportscar, would engage in heavy parties, etc. etc. would grow an ego. sure it would influence my driving and performance. badly. see raikkonen. see alonso. see hamilton. ...
someone said about seb he is like a trophy. you take him out on thursday and put him back on his place sunday. deal done. and thats the way it is.
happy to see webber on the podium on his last race and massa in the points - the drive through was so ######in unneded. sure, you cut kerbs or corners over the white line, there you gain some time. but during a full acceleration phase? you dont have to be a physic or mathematic to see that felipes penalty was dead wrong today.
unsure about hamilons. mercedes really tried their best today to hand the 2nd wdc to ferrari. i even half-expect a bad word from hami or rosberg after the race to get a DQ and hand ferrari stil the 2nd place.
alonso? sore loser. he finally is back on the podium and avoids to smile?! probably he knows he will have to beat lucky niki lauda ow to ever win a title again, so thats why...
button: kinda man of the race for me. i so hoped it would heavily shower the last 10 laps then button sure would have made to the podium. on mixed conditions if i was a team-boss i would ONLY put seb and button in the car. no one else.
that b*atc* now doing the winner intveriws on the podium. did already those pre-race, grabbed sebs hand and feet and what else. thats really what you should not do. seb refused ofc. and probab she is only after the money.
man of the race: bottas! gillette should give him every single cent of their corporate income. this guy is the only one these days knowing how to use a shaver and have a haircut.

Personally, both Perez and Button had fantastic races, McLaren really pulled something out of the bag here, since they looked strong throughout the race. Ignoring the sheer pace of Seb letting him get away with a pitstop error the rest of the battles throughout the pack were interesting and great watching.
Great final race for Mark too, definitely went better than DC's did.
