Grosjean was very lucky on this one.

Lewis was also lucky to win the Driver's Championship when he did. He now has COVID-19. George Russell may fill in for him the rest of the season.

Lucky? Erm.... he has a 131 point lead (that's five races worth assuming Valteri got fastest lap in each race too) over his team mate and has won ELEVEN of the fifteen races so far this season. Nothing lucky about Lewis' championship win at all.

Seriously????

Is George going to be Nigel Mansell Mk2 in the luck department?


Great helmet though - looks fantastic in that car Such a shame drivers don't pick one design and stick with it anymore

Good to see Lewis has re-signed for 2021. Now let's hope the car is good.

So the first race of the season tomorrow and it looks like Max Verstappen and the Red Bull are the combination to beat. The Mercedes is struggling with rear-end grip it seems.....

Some very, very interesting team battles ahead; Leclerc vs Sainz, Norris vs Ricciardo, Tsunoda vs Gasly to name but three. It will be interesting too to see how Vettel fares against Stroll (who in theory he should comfortably beat) and how will Alonso do on his return. Ocon is no slouch, although probably not top-drawer so Alonso really needs to be beating him as Ricciardo did last year.

Wishing all the best to Sir Lewis, George and Lando.

A wonderful first race of the season, won against all odds, by Sir Lewis Hamilton.

But it looks like Red Bull have the car to beat this season and I suspect Mercedes are going to have to find a lot more speed if they are going to be able to mount a challenge to Verstappen.

Surprisingly Leclerc looked to be struggling against Sainz, but come qualifying and the race, he showed just how good he is. This remains for me, the key qualifying battle on the grid - along with Ricciardo vs Norris. How these two pairs fare against each other can help us gauge some relative speeds of others.

The Monaco Grand Prix and what a disaster. Of all places for Sir Lewis to have problems..... and sadly no chance of rain when its really needed.

A great afternoon of sport ahead then chez warspite: Lewis starting from 7th at a track its impossible to overtake on at 2pm and then the football straight after.....

At least your sports are not like running in China:

It looks like Max Verstappen is starting to walk away with the championship.... The car is so fast on the straights and is just as good as the Mercedes at cornering.

WDC no.8 seems a long way off right now for Sir Lewis

Bravo Sprint Quali!! Let's do this every race.

Verstappen's left front brake was literally on fire when the lights went out. Purple flames were visible. He may be ahead, but he certainly flirted with disaster.
