ahahahahahahah   Joe!!   The last 3 races???   number 1, and this one was really really good!!!! It was incredible to see those inter tyres reduced to"slick" cause nobody had the guts to put slick on!!! Charles very unlucky indeed he did a top top job,but a silly mistake at the last corner ruined all his focking incredible race...honestly!!!



Lewis!!??   hes a champ mate no questions,congratulations to him and the Mercedes team

Vettel?  i knew from the starts he would have done well,very well,he knows the wet and beyond!!!

I have immensely enjoyed this  race!!!!   No traction control,no abs,,,,,wheels spinning in 5th...mate!!!   top kids!!!!!!   ALL OF THEM!!!

PS:  Charles goes....Sono un coglione,,,SONO UN COGLIONE!!   Meaning    i am a jerk!!!    hahahaahahahahah  after that the Boss told him to stop whinging and to bring the car back!!!   Charles showed all his potential if you ask me,,,,incredible kid this one

I find these lists questionable.  I get it for the top few however below that I wonder if these are "book values" the teams run for internal accounting purposes or to big note in these stories. Economies don't work this way (at least in my world) - plenty of drivers, very few seats and teams struggling to find budget.

For example, I would be staggered if HAAS is actually transferring $3.2m each to Grosjean and Magnussen. There are equal (or better) drivers who would do it for free to try and get time in front of other teams. Same for Sauber, no way Kimi is taking home $10m these days.

I mean, even Bottas, how the hell does that negation go:-
TEAM: We will give you $2m to drive in the best car, win a few races but mostly roll over for Lewis.
VB: No, I am the 5th best driver in the world, I demand $15m.
TEAM: Well Valtteri, we do like you and Lewis loves having such a pushover in the other car so what about $5m a free watch and some paddock passes for your mates?
VB: You are not respecting my Finish greatness - $15m or I will go back to Williams, it's not a threat it's a promise.
Team: Ok, Ok, calm down. It's a tough deal but done! $15m it is.
I don't think so, pretty much every driver bar 2 or 3 in this years field could do the same or better job as Valtteri in that car.

I'd not do it for any money.

I'd throw up in my helmet every time so badly I'd not be able to finish 2 laps.  And I'd feel absolute shit for days.

Btw, big kudos to the safety; just seen news of this insane crash.   The guy walks away with burns to his hand that's all.   He fucking went through the barrier.  Mental.
