    Apparently the SC car lights didn't go out til the last moment, so Bottas didn't go early because... he couldn't, bc the SC lights were still on.

    Come on Dan, Cyril needs that tattoo!

    #Edit. Aaaand he chokes it. He'll be a good match to Vettel next year.

    #Edit 2. A Red Flag restart? Thus u=is getting a little silly. It seems F1 is turning into Indycar.

    looks like his tire let go and he was a passenger at that point....

    the amount of safety cars / red flags is getting abit extreme imo, i wonder if pressure from above has anything to do with it, to bunch the pack up for more action and to hide just how dominant the merc's are by nullifying their insane lead, a couple of crashes ive seen over the past couple of years that i didnt feel called for a safety car

    COVID could be a factor, fewer marshalls, takes longer to recover cars/marshalls on track on track longer = safety car, just to be safe.

    Nice result for Albon. Really thought Russel had some points in the bag until that last restart. Pity.

    Something got very toasty an would not go out, may have been oil, but there was a lot of nasty brown smoke they had no choice.
