Best race of the year so far... nice to see George on the podium, though!

Apparently, Toto has made his decision, after listening to Lewis' view, but is not ready to divulge that information yet!

In my opinion, Bottas will get a 1-year extension, a safe #2 driver to Hamilton, George would actually challenge Hamilton.

Hearing Bottas to Sauber but wonder if it could be Russell - would seem odd as surely that's not Mercedes territory...

What a farce of a ‘race’.
Well praise to Lewis Hamilton for calling it out on live tv! These people who have sat here all day to watch two laps of precession behind a safety car ...just so can give clarification ... they deserve refund! FIA bring once again the racing into disrepute! they don’t even know their own rules.disgusting display.

That said Russel has done enough to deserve drive in Mercedes next year. mr, Saturday reaped in his rewards on the Sunday.

Lewis was absolutely right. Those two laps were deliberately run just to avoid a rescheduled event for Monday. A commercial decision.

This is a bigger mess than Indy '05.

The terms and conditions of ticket sale preclude refunds if the event is canceled due to force majeure. Force majeure is defined as events beyond the control of the parties, see "Article 13: Cancellation of the event".

Is there even a mechanism to run a race on a Monday?
