    why o why did the ferraris have to crash. good recovery drive that being said. would have love to have seen ricciardo vs rosberg vs vettel vs raikkonen.

    despite all the carnage, all 22 cars finished amazingly
    It was good that all drivers managed to finish the race :yep:

    Certainly an interesting race, that was - and the Ferrari's managed to recover quite nicely.

    Also impressed with Hamilton getting from last up to 7th - nice recovery - but I can't help but think that, after Hamilton winning the last 2 championships, the Mercedes team have turned the power down slightly on his car (compared to Rosberg's) so that Rosberg gets the championship this year? It was strange that Hamilton was overtaken by both a Red Bull and a Ferrari - both of which he'd normally hold back without any issues.

    Yeah, he was my driver of the day until the last few laps but I think it was more the fact that the damage to the car from the first lap was making him eat up his tyres quicker. That's what Toto Wolff said anyway, I think.

    I caught that as well and heard that Toto wolff said about the damage to the car. Having said that, I think the difference that the damage made was very small - I mean, why was Rosberg so much faster than Hamilton? Was it down to the damage? Or was it down to something else?

    I stick by what I said before - Merc. want Rosberg to win this year, so are making it harder for Hamilton. But that's my opinion. Whether it will be that way or not, we'll have to wait and see.
