If you have not yet watched Hungary, avert your eyes….
Amazing race. I was literally at the edge of my seat for the last 10 laps or so. Amazing how a race in changeable conditions throws a few jokers into the deck, delivering some unlikely results. With that said….
Massive props to Ricciardo for a brilliant drive, and RB for a brilliant strategy. I am guessing Finger Boy right now is heading for some psychological counseling during the break. Nice Danny Sullivan move on the main straight though.
And massive props to Hamilton for reaching the podium from the pit lane. I am no fan, but I still maintain that he is the better of the two Merc boys, if he can both get a reliable car and most importantly keep his head screwed on straight.
And one more set of massive props to Fred to hang on for P2 on totally spent tires in a decidedly second or third tier car. Even Kimi managed to not throwaway an opportunity for some good points.
On the negative side of the ledger, Rosberg has demonstrated that Lewis is not the only Diva on the grid with an outsized sense of entitlement. Good for Lewis to flip the bird at team orders. Rosberg was not at all quicker at that point in the race. To feel aggrieved that your team mate who is battling with you tooth and nail for the WC should move over says a lot about Nico's mindset. I think both these guys can use a couple weeks off, get laid a bit, and relax.
Lauda as usual calls a spade a spade.
