    Thrilling end there

    It looked like I was at a disadvantage in the points but Vettel and Raikkonen passing Bottas at the end was massive for me

    unfortunately Bottas took damage and that prevented me from the clean sweep

    Mercedes have taken full control going into the summer break, Vettels hopes for the title are quickly going away

    Raikkonen has finished on the podium 5 consecutive races, quietly the most consistent driver as of late

    Congrats to BSF for the near sweep. BSF moves into second place ahead of 43. The comeback continues and the momentum is on your side. See everyone in a month.

    That win was entirely due to wet qualifying. And Bottas holding up the rest.

    Well played, but fortunate. Ferrari is clearly the quicker car.

    Is August the month everybody takes off in Europe?
    I worked for an Italian company for a brief time and was desperately trying to get some info from the home office during their vacation month...my boss gave me a number and told me to let the phone ring for as long as it took (this was pre-email for this place) as somebody would eventually answer it, even if they had to come from another building.
    I did what he said and somebody did pick up the phone after maybe 15 minutes. They actually spoke English well enough to tell me the person I was looking for was not there...which was exactly what I expected.
