Or, exercising a conspiracy theory, an external systems hack. Probably never know the full story on it. But was odd, and coincidence seems a stretch.

My heart broke for Charles.

As you guys might remember I am not a Lewis fan but as MOA pointed out he was very gentlemanly toward Charles.

LeClerc deserved to win; but, as LUCK would have it, it wasn't in the cards "this" time...

Didn't watch most of the race, as I was in the midst of a family emergency; but, I trust you regarding Hamilton.
Will try to catch it, when I'm in a "sane" place...

Did Vettel crack? I don't think so... if he hadn't pushed, the comment would have been regarding his lack of guts.
Can't win for losing, can he?

RE: The Vettel spin. The color commentator on F1 website captured it for me, "His ambition got ahead of his adhesion." Well put. I just saw it as a racing thing.

Yes, at least for now, hopefully, it stays that way, Leclerc has somewhat put his 4-time world champion teammate in the shade in the first two races, Leclerc was faster in Melbourne near the end as well, but the team called off the battle!

Wouldn't be the first time a team has used team orders other than Ferrari.
I'm pretty sure the same thing happened with another "lesser" teammate being called off not too long ago.
