    Not an Alonso fan at all...
    Less exciting than race 1, race 2 still featured a Ferrari meltdown, a decent showing for McLaren (especially in the closing stages (again), Red Bull being a bit more competitive, glimpses of lhope for Williams, and a bit of interest in the midfield battles.
    Racing Point seem to be punching above their weight with the clone of last years championship winning car, much to Danny Ric's annoyance.
    All the Ferrari powered cars are down on power this year, wonder why...?

    Ferrari's engine seems to be a step back. Or the others took a bigger step forward.

    The Ferrari is slower now than before the FIA took a keen interest and came to that strange, clandestine arrangement with them.

    Whatever cunningness they had developed has been removed and the engine is now a shadow of its former self.

    Exactly - if it were anyone but Ferrari, they would have been told they were cheating.

    So it would seem that Otmar and Stroll SNR will be a popular interview this weekend if the increasingly strong rumours of Vettel arriving for the Aston Martin rebrand continue to gather momentum ...

    But which contract will they break ... Perez who consistently delivers (and brings loads of valuable sponsorship), or Lance, the nearly man who probably thinks he’s safe in Daddy’s car?

    My guess would be keep Perez alongside Vettel and send Lance of to Haas or Williams with funding ...

    Discuss ....

    Boring British GP on Sunday untill the 48th lap! Well done to Max, and if only Albon could string a weekend of being consistent on all 3 days he might finish higher up!

    Oh I don't know, if you ignored the top 3 there was pretty much non-stop action in the mid-field which was entertaining.

    How Daniil Kvyat walked away from that crash into a solid wall I don't know
    Tyre management spoilt the spectacle, but came back to enliven the race in the final stages
    Maybe time for Romain Grosjean to step aside from his role at the GPDA...
    Good performance from all 4 British drivers (I include Albon - yes, he needs consistency)
    Poor / unlucky for Racing Point
    Nice to see Danny Ric enjoying himself
    Looks like Vettel isn't being treated to the same Ferrari power unit as Charles. His is as mediocre as the other F-powered cars
    Only 1 car lapped - and that was due to tyre problems, so the cars are closer together than in previous races

    Tire choice is even a step softer next weekend.

    Yes indeed - softer tyres and higher temperatures.

    Hopefully together they'll mitigate at least some of the Mercedes advantage - high temperatures do seem to the Merc's cars only clear Achilles heel.

    It'll certainly be surprising to see anyone one-stopping.
