RIP Anthoine Hubert.

Yesterday is history. Tomorrow is a mystery. Every day is a gift, that's why we call it "the present".

Vettel may have aided LeClerc's win by staying out to slow Lewis. This arguably cost Seb a podium, proving what really makes a champion.

No let up in the schedule - and that is going to increase next year! - as this weekend its on to Italy. Once again, with their speed advantage, the Ferraris are hot favourites to take a 1-2 at Monza.

The last races of the season are going to be really close I think. Ferrari will be quick on some tracks, Mercedes on others, and Red Bull will likely be the best on at least three of the remaining circuits.

Important for Lewis to keep the points coming - we can do without late surges from Ferrari or Red Bull making life complicated!

...but the late surge from the Prancing Horse continues....

six rounds to go, Ferrari in the ascendancy and some Red Bull tracks amongst those still to come.... Come on Lewis - think tactically now, the 6th title is within your grasp but not certain by any means....

...and then there was four to go. Lewis with a 64 point lead (effectively 65 as Bottas can't match his 9 (nine) wins) and with only 104 to play for.

Almost there......

Meanwhile the battle for 3rd, 4th and 5th is interesting (possibly 2nd too but Valteri's win on Sunday has put some daylight between him, the Ferrari twins and Verstappen).

A 74-point lead and only 78 points maximum to play for. Almost there Lewis, almost there for WDC No.6

One of my favourite tracks on the calendar Austin, Texas. Could this be where Lewis seals no. 6?

A track where actual racing takes place

Congratulations to Lewis Hamilton, what an incredible season again.

Congratulations Sir Lewis of Hamilton!!!!!!

A nice touch from Seb too - no doubt he was thinking about the way Lewis supported him through his recent problems

Lewis Hamilton, what a G

21 races and Lewis wins more than all other drivers combined. The guy is phenomenal.

The Williams is being launched today. One can't help but feel this is a a massively important year for this once great marque.

At least it has to be an improvement on last year.....

All testing done and as ever, we won't know the true state of play until wheels turn in anger in Australia.

Big question: will the Grand Prix season even be completed?

The Chinese GP has already been postponed (likely cancelled). We saw countries stopping flights to/from China. If that happens to Japan or Italy or the UK anywhere else the teams, engine suppliers, technicians, engineers etc etc are based, then one or more teams can't take part.

Thank you.

I was thinking only of the audience. And my thinking was that they could perform the race without live audience and just send it on TV. But without any crews getting to the location it is, of course, not possible to go ahead.

RIP Stirling - if ever a guy HAD to be a racing driver based on his name . 10-years earlier and he would have been a fighter pilot.

Arguably the greatest F1 driver not to be World Champion.

So Sebastian Vettel and Ferrari are to part company at the end of 2020. Would be a huge story if there was actually any motor racing happening....

Shakespeare could not have written a more dramatic situation than two great drivers in one F1 team. Vettel and LeClerc locked horns repeatedly and they weren't even driving for 3rd place overall. If Ferrari strategists can't put together more than three race wins this season, then LeClerc may eventually follow Vettel.

So things really have been shaken up - Ricciardo to McLaren and Sainz to Ferrari. So does Vettel now go to Mercedes?

Sainz to Ferrari? I see that his godfather Alonso continues to have a lot of influence in Maranello.
