This weekends track means walls walls walls and NO run off areas. In theory the Mercedes of Lewis will be the absolute fastest car out there and the only thing he will have to do is drive to the finish. However the smallest mistake will be game over.

Feels like a bit of bad luck or poor reliability will settle this title. One DNF or on-track incident will be very costly.

Thats what i feel Paul an on track incident.

Sad news that Sir Frank Williams has passed this afternoon.

When I was growing up the Williams team was right up there with Ferrari, McLaren and Renault - that was the era that really got me hooked.

Yep, I recall the FW14B doing its thing on the track.  Very much an iconic car.

Any predictions for tomorrows race?

Here are mine

1.  Ver

2.  Gasly

3. Bot

4. Per

5.Ham

 

Logic? not really but the lay out of the track, the walls, the limited visibility could cause quite an unexpected result. Could easily be in the upside down order!

Also the run up to the first corner is very very short i expect total chaos there.

Am expecting a few yellow flags after watching the f2 sprint race! As long as Lewis gets a good start and remains in front after the start and first corner am sure he’ll win. Max will be desperate to get ahead and will probably cause said chaos!

Some pretty bad driving by Max. He has no sense of when he has lost a position and is prepared to take Lewis out rather than cede a position. On a number of occasions today. We’ll have to see what the telemetry proves re the ‘brake test’ incident. Past precedent would suggest a race ban or more. I doubt the FIA will allow this so we may go into the final race with Max getting away with it and thinking all he has to do is take Lewis out to win the title. Unbelievable race but some dirty driving by Max and he was only penalised once. Let’s wait and see what happens.

Agree Paul. Max appeared to Brake test Lewis as he said over car radio. Incident packed race though. Pleased to see Bottas took 3rd.

Well you got one place right out of five,  should have consulted Mystic Meg LOL!

Must admit race was a nail biter and was pleasantly surprised Lewis managed to win despite bad luck that favoured Max and a damaged front wing.

Even without the over aggressive Max there was car carnage to others partly due to the nature of the track and insufficient run offs.  I don't know if the course could be improved but all the restarts spoilt it for me.

I don't think this track is suited for F1 cars. Too fast.  Apart from oil dollars there is no reason to be here. No spectators other than some expats and Saudis. No atmosphere and it a small miracle no major accidents happened with all the blind high speed corners without run off.

The race itself was pure chaos, a lottery. Lewis showed his experience by driving around the mess. I don't like drivers and team bosses openly trying to influence the stewards into giving the opponent a penalty. A bit like football players trying to score a yellow for the other party. Also the inconsistency in penalties is shocking. One can easily make a list of identical issues through the season that are judged differently.

Whatever your opinion, the aggression of Max, the all or nothing attitude alike jaques villeneuve or senna has made this season to what it is. Without Max it would be an utterly boring procession.

Gloves off and on to Abu Dhabi!
