Vettel has been called before the Stewards for ignoring double waved yellows in qualifying.
Didnt leave his attitude at Ferrari when he left then.  :D

They'd have a job putting him much further back on the grid.

He should have retired with a bit of dignity 3 or 4 years ago.

Maybe, but if people kept offering me millions of pounds to trundle along at the back of the grid...... ;D

He is probably already worth at least £50 million, so why bother ? :-\

Good result. Might be closer this year. Vettel was his old self. Well done Lando.

Yes it was good to see a nailbiting  final 10 or so laps. Lewis used all his experience and intelligence, and Max got a little over excited as he often does.
He is a great prospect, but he isnt quite the full package yet.
Its looking like it could be a very competitive season. The Red Bull looks seriously fast.

Young Shumacher is definitely a chip off the old block. He had a moan about the fireworks at the end of the race being irritating because he was still on his last lap.
It reminded me of a passage in Prof. Sid Watkins book about his many years as F1 official Doctor.
 Schumacher had quite a big accident in the Benetton and the medical car went out and picked him up . Its normal practice to talk to the driver on the way back to the medical centre to try and gauge if they are ok.
As soon as he sat in the car Schumacher said "you have A/C switched on yes ?" The good Doc confirmed this to be correct.
Schumacher said "it upsets my nose, turn it off."
The Doctors looked at each other and mumbled, "not much wrong with him is there".  ;D

Hamilton was in the slower car on older rubber, and managed to hold the whippersnapper off, so credit where it is due.

If he can drop the victim laden BLM crap he'll be the complete package.

As a driver, he is the complete package.
The other stuff is his personal beliefs, which although I dont always agree with, I believe comes from a genuine desire to use his position for good, rather than just personal gain.
Whether we agree or not with what he does, I dont doubt his life would be easier and less complicated if he didnt bother with any of it and just lived the archetypal F1 playboy lifestyle.

I watched the Lauda V Hunt battle from 1976. These two really were polar opposites. I imagine James Hunt had far more fun though. :y

You don't get drivers like Hunt in F1 these days.

Rumour has it that James Hunt was caught banging one of the Japanese grid girls in the McLaren garage before a race. ;D

True?
False?

He lives in Monaco... Not much of a philanthropist.

Resident in Switzerland now actually, but still in the top 5% of taxpayers to the UK treasury. ;)
Currently putting a lot of his money into the charitable foundation he set up last year.
