    Figured I’d start this since no one has. Ferrari one-two at Italy feels like Chase Elliott on the pole, place will lose their minds if either Kimi or Sebastian win

    Hartley has zero luck.

    Hamilton takes Vettel out! Haha that was a Kyle Busch move right there slamming the door from the outside

    Ferrari just might have ****** Vettel completely.

    Reck Enrique?

    Correction: Vettel took himself out.

    Even the German announcers said it was Vettel's fault. And I can't remember the last time they did, so this is remarkable.
     
  7. Vettel going to be back in the top 5 within 10 laps lol

    The pit stops will be interesting to say the least.

    How many engines has Ricciardo lost this year? They seem to have issues every second race.

    Red Bull is just cruelly trolling Ric. **** them.

    He made the right choice of leaving them.

  11. Danny’s luck has been completely sh!t since Monaco
     
  12. Can already see how this is going play out

    Reck Enrique?

    Is it really bad luck or lack of effort on part of his team?

    In my opinion, Ricciarado has never had quite the respect he deserves from his own team. They have been screwing him and treating him as a second class citizien as far back as I can remember.

    Bottas better be earning more than Hamilton.

    I hate these cheap tactics.

    Kimi does not have the grip he needs in parabolica.

    That's not a good sign.
     
  16. Agreed I want to see Legit Hamilton/Kimi battle where Lewis runs him down, not another Mercedes holding up Kimi so Hamilton can catch up
     
  17. Reck

    Reck Enrique?

    Vettel might win this race because Kimi and Hamilton have killed their tires.
     
  18. Mispeedway15

    Verstappen might get this. These tires are getting absolutely eaten up by this track
     
  19. Reck

    Reck Enrique?

    Max is an idiot. Gets warned not to do it again and then goes ahead and runs Bottas off the track.

    Jesus Hamilton is right there. Also no way there is no penalty to Verstappen for that check

    Ugh.

    Kimi did everything he could.
     
  22. Reck

    Reck Enrique?

    Wow. Strong move on the outside.
     
  23. Reck

    Reck Enrique?

    And holy sh!t. Kimi has already fallen off to the tune of almost 2 seconds.
     
  24. Reck

    Reck Enrique?

    Max is delusional.
     
  25. Hamilton better thank Bottas. Sick and ****ing tired of this team orders, it’s not racing, it’s bullsh!t. Not saying Lewis wouldn’t have gotten by, but I would rather have a natural battle build up to it

    Feel so bad for the Italian fans. What an awful day for Ferrari considering what promise the day had
     
  27. Feel for Kimi, man deserves a win so much. Wish we had gotten a Kimi/Lewis Battle without Bottas holding up and in turn destroying Kimi’s tires

    I was really rooting for Kimi today, that was probably his best chance to get a win this year.
    It looks like it's gonna be his final season for Ferrari. If he signed a contract extension, they would've announced it this weekend.

    You can also than Vettel for the end results. Easily could have finished 1-2.

    Knowing how much faster they were, Vettel could have ease up when he saw Hamilton next to him then get him back in the next corner like Kimi did when Hamilton passed him.

    This was a super unexpected outcome for me. Good race too. Racy.
     
  30. It’s was Bottas’s “mission” to hold up Kimi. What a joke. Only reason they keep Bottas is because he does whatever they want him to and he doesn’t care
     
  31. Don’t know what Lewis did that was so fantastic, typically Lewis slopfest

    Mercedes has been doing moves like this for years, not only in F1, but also in DTM.
    The most remarkable was probably at Red Bull Ring in 2015. Wickens (#6) was told to hold up Timo Scheider (#10), so that Pascal Wehrlein (#94), who led the championship coming into that race, could get by both of them.
    After that, Audi's team boss Dr. Wolfgang Ullrich came on the radio telling Scheider to push him out ("Schieb ihn raus!") and Scheider wrecked both Wickens and Wehrlein.
    That was the dirtiest drving I can remember, Audi was fined €100,000, Scheider was disqualified from that race and suspended for another race. Dr. Ullrich was suspended for the rest of the season.

    I don’t know entirely, that track position helped him get on the podium

    I thought he had finally turned the corner but when driving dirty is your first instinct there's not a lot of hope.
