      Lewis is a Mercedes man end off unless some other team has a faster Car to offer him then he would be off like a shot he wants to win GP's if its with Mercedes great if not he would be off.

      Would love to see Lewis in a Ferrari. It is the ultimate ambition for any f1 driver and what with the failures of Alonso and Vettel (unless he can stage a remarkable upturn in fortune next season) the glory obtained by the driver who cements the Scuderia's position back at the top of the sport will be the sweetest.

      But I feel that the moment has gone for him. Ideally they'd have liked him a few years ago when he was a bit younger. They'll want a driver who is about to enter his peak and could feasibly last there for a decade or so in the vain of Schumacher in the mid 90s. Verstappen should be their man for the future.

      Probably best for Lewis to see out his career at Mercedes.

      p.s - good to see Max keep his win today. Would have been a almighty hammer to the nail in the coffin of this sport if he'd had it taken away from him. Same cu*ts complaining about that are the same cu*ts who moaned about every little thing Schumacher did.

      Lewis is at the peak of his career now he has this year nailed on and will be motivated to do it again next season.
      It was great to see Leclerc and Max battle it our and young Norris is really impressing me at 19 years of age in a so so Car. Mercs were in procession mode today unable to cope with the heat  and it will be different for the British GP.

      Glad the stewards didn't take that away from Max.

      Great drive and I don't think there's many better at the moment at chasing down cars in front than him.

      On Lewis and Ferrari, like you guys I'd love to see him in the red car before he retires but just can't see him leaving Mercedes. You never know though if he wins the title again this season he might see it as one challenge before he finishes.

      Only Grosjean could do that. What a pr!ck, how's he still driving in F1?

      Preach Keith. I personally can't stand the guy. Always crying foul on others actions yet the worst kind of hazard to others on track and his own team. Truth be told, he should never have been allowed back into the sport following his destruction derby driving that endangered the life of Fernando Alonso at Spa a few years back.

      Haas will continue being a joke team with him and Magnussen in the team. Two ungrateful, vastly overrated and undeserving drivers in my view.

      Just a thought but have Williams turned up working for them at the moment must be torture.

      Just flicking between this and the tennis. Good lord, what awesome, smart and defensive driving from Charles Leclerc!

      Lewis takes the lead on the safety car.

      p.s - nice to see a car beached in the gravel rather than carrying on into a tarmac runoff without punishment.

      What the hell was Vettel thinking?! Drove straight into the back of Verstappen and sent him off the track. Expect that sh*t from Grosjean.

      Vettel for who was so dominant for a number of years, he’s really starting to take the shine off his career since Hamilton has fu**ed him up mentally.

      Said it few weeks ago Vettel finished for me at the top, wouldn't be at all surprised if he makes this his last year.
