Bad job on the side of the Merc garage, they tanked it already on the first turn on lap 1. They also blew it twice later that race, with Daniel tangled with both Mercs, but they were both Lewis' and Nico's fault. Danny had a chance to win again at Hungary yesterday if he didn't tangled with the Mercs. He had the pace against both Ferrari and Mercedes, despite the lack of straight line speed.

Seb drove flawlessly. Bellisimo! Molto Bene! Reminded me of his Red Bull days. Also, a very fitting race for Jules, who passed away last week. This race is surely a perfect sendoff to him.

I wasn't going to watch the race live, but I'm so happy I did. The tribute to Jules was one of if not the best tributes i've even seen in motorsport. Gave me a lump in my throat and watery eyes. Just wonderful.

 

As for the race itself I'm glad to see Seb/Ferrari stick it to Mercedes. A shame for Kimi, but it was also nice to see both Red Bulls on the podium.

 

Even Alonso in his underpowered Mclaren beat Rosberg and Hamilton. That's sad. I mean yeah luck fell his way I suppose, but Mclaren haven't had much of it so it was nice to see them get a good result.

The race in Hungary was probably the best race so far this season. Next race is Spa which is one of my favourite F1-circuits on the calendar. The other ones are Montreal, Monaco and Albert Park. By the way, It would be interesting if we could see a rain race on Spa because I don't think there have been many rain races during the last two years. Somehow,it feels like it usually rains on Friday or Satursday if the rain appears during a F1-weekend. I talk about rain because Spa is one of those placces where there often is risk of rain.

 

Overall the season has been quite mediocre, especially the qualifying sessions because you always know that Hamilton probably will get Pole Position and so on. but some races have been quite good. Strangely, the race in Canada wasn't that entertaining. The most boring race was the one in Barcelona. They really have to get rid of Barcelona because the races there are always static and don't have much action at all.

 

For those who are interested my favourite drivers used to be Michael Schumacher and Jacques Villeneuve, but they haven't raced in F1 for a while now. The only driver I cheer extra for is Marcus Ericsson since he is Swedish, just like I am.

Rain always makes things more interesting, but I think it'll be a return to normal service at Spa unless Mercedes make another botched start.

I can't see Spa's long straights being too kind to McLaren and Red Bull though.

If the Mercedes cars make a bad start for the third time in a row again, then yes, it will probably be easier for them to bounce back. Hungaroring is the second hardest circuit to overtake on after Monaco. Silverstone was also a circuit where it was difficult to overtake (Hamilton and Rosberg coudn't even get past the Williams cars on Hangar straight), but Spa must be one of the easiest Circuits to overtake on: first corner, the straight after Eau Rouge, Bus Stop chicane, and so on.

Yeah, no rain at Spa please.

That'll just make Eau Rouge-Raidillon and Blanchimont boring.

I thought the race at Spa was quite good. I woudn't have thought that Grosjean would finish in third place. Good for him. And it's nice to see more drivers/teams fighting for the top positions.

 

Lewis Hamilton won once again and I don't think Rosberg can beat him this year because the brit is almost always a little bit faster than him. It isn't over yet though. If Hamilton retires because of mechanial issues or something like that and Rosberg wins, then it's tight in the points again.

Spa was ok. Mercedes dominated, pretty much. That rear wing is working wonders.

I feel bad for Seb. He should have forced that pitstop before the tyre gave out. Bottas incident was luls.
