Formula one fans ASSEMBLE!

Could FINALLY be a juicy race tonight. Hamilton drops to 4th on the grid with Leclerc, Verstappen (who prang in P2), Bottas (who pranged in P2) all ahead of him.

Right up his arse behind him is Norris, Raikkonnen, Gasly, and Giovinazzi.

If there's ever a recipie for chaos, this could be it !!

Pretty much :D

I'd love to see Leclerc win his first F1 race.... lots to like about him as a driver.

Shows a lot about his character when Vettels car had a leak and couldn't come out in final qualifying, and as LeClerc wins and they talk to him on radio, he says "I'm very sorry for the team for what happened to Seb".

What a battle going on at the front... WOW!!!

Don't fully agree with Verstappen bumping LeClerc off track there... driver is meant to leave room and he ran Leclerc off the track.

But a home race theres no way the stewards would punish him.

Leclerc best place in career either way.

its funny who is immune from penalties in F1 .. I don't know how Verstappen got immunity considering hes not british… but the guy drives dirty all the time and never gets penalized .. you cant drive a competitor off the road if you are neck and neck.. its called racing room!!!!!!!! its different if you have a half a car length, then the 2nd car must yield..

I'm more curious how Vettel and Ricciardo get penalised for similar incidents (not leaving another driver room and running them off track), and yet Verstappen doesn't.

Lets be honest though, Verstappen could have shanked Leclerc and still got a free pass. Nobody was taking away a home victory from Max.

But imagine if the roles were reversed... Leclerc wouldn't have even made the podium before he had it overturned.

Feel really bad for Leclerc, because your maiden F1 win is special. Even if he wins the next race, his first win was taken from him.

Too much at stake to take the victory away from the prodigal cheat!
It means that he is locked into staying with RBR for at least the rest of this and next year due to them meeting a contractual condition.

Still, Leclerc deserved the win and Vershitcunt deserved a permaban.

This just gets stranger and stranger... Haas need to distance themselves from this and fast, because I doubt Liberty Media will be impressed with the negative press this is bringing F1.

Sounds like directors have jumped ship and passed the company off to another firm to avoid scrutiny.

Somethings not sitting right in all this... at all.

They are better than last year (ditto Haas are doing quite well). Renault not too bad. There's a decent midfield battle.
