I'm not going to touch the Lewis / Nico topic. I will just say WOW. Lewis' luck has to change at some point. It's quite disappointing to see him hampered by all of this crap.
Not like it needs mentioning, but Nico was passing someone with the DRS open and his car had a 28 kmh advantage over the other car! Talk about slingshotting by.
Congrats to DR! Another great drive. Given, he wouldn't have won if Merc didn't have issues, but the kid drove his ass off and capitalized on the situation. It's so refreshing to see such a big smile and enjoyment from him. I hope he doesn't become tainted like the other drivers after a while.
Just more proof of how much better the aero is on the RBs versus everyone else. That rear wing was TINY! And the car still stuck in the corners. Vettel was getting some squirming, but he was on the paint quite a bit more than DR.
Good drive by Kimi...finally! It sucks Alonso got the penalty and then the traffic and wing damage.
Some pretty good scrapping going on with Alonso, Button and Vettel.
I know it's the commentators job to hype the situation and try to get the viewers on the edge of their seat, but come on man.....a 5 year old could do the math and see that Nico wasn't going to pass DR. IIRC, it was 8 laps with a 22 second deficit. That means that Nico would have to average 2.75 seconds per lap, just to catch DR, much less pass him. Not going to happen. Yeah, he took 3 seconds out on 1 lap, but the gains diminished quickly after that. One of the guys made a comment about the camera staying on the actual racing for 5th place instead of showing the leader. Well, when Nico is 3 seconds behind DR, there isn't much excitement of watching DR on a Sunday drive.
