Come on Lewis - almost there!

Fantastic race yesterday. COTA is such a great track!

Great drives from Kimi, Max and Lewis. Mercedes made a huge mistake not bringing Lewis in when he had a 17 second lead and Pirelli had said the tyres would not go to the end. But it made for great entertainment - I was out of my seat, and with my heart in my mouth when Lewis attempted to overtake Max! Lewis showed great maturity not to risk a collision and to instead think of the bigger picture.

So the title race moves on to Mexico.... Lewis 70 ahead and just 75 left to play for.

A great big Ditto on that! The first corner looks like it's straight up.

Vettel turned into his own worst enemy this season.

+1

Vettel blew the last 3 races in the first lap. 3 first laps, 3 collisions. Lots of points lost.

Lewis Hamilton equals the great JM Fangio on 5 World Driver Championship wins. So pleased for Lewis. It's been a great season. No one can say he's had the best car over the season (close with Ferrari and on at least two occasions the Red Bull has been out of sight), but his drives have made the difference. Not a mistake worthy of the name, some stunning qualifying laps (which really made the difference on race day) and some superb race craft and really mature driving. Top man, top driver!!!!

Lewis - what a season its been . Ending 2018 with an 11th race win is pretty impressive to say the least given the opposition from Ferrari and Red Bull at times. I think he mentally destroyed Sebastian. He has driven a largely perfect season - no real mistakes worth the name - and so kept the pressure on the Ferrari even when the Prancing Horse had the best car.

Many have commented that this was his best season to date. I think they are right.

Lewis scored more points than any driver in history along with setting several other records. Truly phenomenal!

Farewell to Alonso and Raikonnen!

Lots of driver changes for the next season. Will LeClerc be the Ferrari challenger that Vettel wasn't?

Interesting. My money is on Alonso being back next year - 2021 at the latest. And don't write Vettel off just yet.. he's had a really bad year but he had one of those in 2014 and came back strongly.

That said, I can't wait to see Vettel vs Leclerc next year. Hulkenburg vs Ricciardo will be worth watching too.

To clarify, Lewis scored more points in one season than anyone else. I think it was 402.

Yeah, I hope that Renault gives Danny Ric and Hulk a car that can compete.

Meanwhile, this just in:

Maybe Jimmie should call Haas?

Mmmmm, less controversial and more...well.... dumb. Fernando, great driver though he is, was not the second best driver last year. Sorry, that's just silly.

Arevaderchie Arrivabene. I can only guess it wasn't just the fans that did not like Ferrari's strategies last year.

There is a documentary on the Williams Team tonight - almost 2-hours long so I am really hopeful that this will prove worth watching.

This looks like it may have been shown previously on Netflix but I've never heard of it until now....

Sepp takes his new Ferrari for a spin. Also, Kimi will be driving for Alfa Romeo.

Everyone seems relaxed about the Mercedes in testing. I know this is testing and we don't know what teams are running what programs, what fuel loads etc, but all the same the Ferrari engined cars seem strong and I still think that Red Bull are going to be contenders this year - making McLaren's early bale-out from Honda look even more the wrong decision....

Mercedes advantage is a gearing issue in the first 3 gears. somehow they get a little more power in those gears than anyone else I saw last year. This gives a Grand Prix driver a heck of an advantage. If the other guys are figuring this out (and I'm sure they are, they have to be seeing what I was seeing and there are some SMART people there), it should get a lot more competitive soon. But this little trick must be a bear to get right. We are talking microns here.

And it certainly was. Thoroughly recommended as you don't need to be an F1 fan to get something out of this incredible story of not only Frank Williams but his late wife too.

Perhaps Mercedes read your post. Sepp's lead is down to 3 milliseconds.

Yes but as you know, that gap means nothing. Ferrari were not running at the time so different conditions applied and moreover, we don't know engine modes or fuel at the time.

The analysis done so far by the experts over the course of the 8-days of testing (and this is caveated for the same reasons as above) are that Ferrari are about half a second up on race pace....

Can Ferrari go an entire race? The car definitely has some issues. We'll know in 2 weeks. Chin up!

RIP Charlie Whiting.

1. Valtteri Bottas Mercedes
2. Lewis Hamilton Mercedes + 20,886
3. Max Verstappen Red Bull + 22,520
4. Sebastian Vettel Ferrari + 57,109
5. Charles Leclerc Ferrari + 58,230
6. Kevin Magnussen Haas + 87,156
7. Nico Hülkenberg Renault + 1
8. Kimi Räikkönen Alfa R. + 1
9. Lance Stroll Racing P + 1
10. Daniil Kvjat Toro R. + 1

Well well, a dominant Merc weekend as expected, but with a suprise winner. Well done Bottas after such a difficult last season, dominated the race with a fastest lap there as well.

Another suprise with Honda powered Red Bulls, seems they've got the upper hand on Ferraris.

Edit: and of course well dome Kimi, the Iceman is still around, despite the global warming and all, no sign of melting there!

LeClerc clearly could have passed Sepp, so is there going to be a changing of the guard?

Once again, tough luck for Danny Ric. Good sign for Kvyat.

A great race from Bottas. Lewis' race appears to have been compromised by the broken undertray - but this happened after Valtieri had passed him at the start.

Three battles I've really looked forward to over the winter:

The Hulk vs Dany Ric
It is I Leclerc vs Vettel
Nandos vs Sainz

Kvyat vs Albon and
Perez vs Stroll are also potentially interesting matches.

A great many questions will be asked about our 'accepted understanding' of the order of things if Leclerc beats Seb and The Hulk beats Riciardo.....

Just a word on Red Bull. Sorry but in my opinion there is no surprise here. Verstappen is a multiple WDC of the future, Adrian Newey is a genius, and all the signs last year were that Honda was starting to get its act together (McLaren what were you thinking???). Take those three things together and you have a mix that says Verstappen will win races this season without doubt.
