      Been a big fan since watching Hunt & Lauda chase each back in the 70's, can't see Hammy being beaten to the title and think he'll outdo Schumi in the title stakes eventually as well!

      The neutrals may say boring race. However, if your a Hammy fan it was perfect.  ;D Apparantly 8 more points needed than Vettel in next race and Lewis is crowned World Champion.

      May have to change Hammy time to (( 5 Times  :D ))

      I thought there was some great midfield action that certainly grabbed my attention for most the race. Not a classic by any means but alright.

      It's incredible how things have changed dramatically since that moment Vettel slid into the barriers in Germany. Not many back then would have betted that the title would be more or less over with a handful of races to go. But for me the relentless performance of Lewis and his team has broken Vettel and Ferrari. Desperate decision making like putting the wrong tyres on for quali yesterday and then Seb's slightly bizarre move on Max today has highlighted that further.

      For Lewis, he's never driven better and with the possible exception of Max, it's hard to see another driver on the grid who will operate on this level of performance in future. I think Max will get there but it will be a few years yet. Schumacher during the Ferrari peak years at the start of the millennium was probably the last man to do it.

      Lewis deserves to be held in the same debate and breath as Michael and Senna now. That in itself is astonishing.

      Switch it off. It's done.
      Vettel nobody to blame but himself.
      Hamilton applied the pressure all year and Vettel consistently cracked.

      We discussed this before, Vettel under pressure blows it time and time again.

      Hamilton just gets better and better.

      The great Murray Walker turned 95 today. In my opinion, simply the greatest sports broadcaster that has ever lived.

      My favourite Murray commentary? The two minutes of the 1998 Italian Grand Prix (from 5.50 to 7.45) where from the lead Coulthard's engine blows, Hakkinen takes the lead briefly and Schumacher in the ensuing chaos overtakes Mika at the chicane moments later with the tifosi going wild and it all being topped off perfectly by Murray's commentary which sweetly reflected the drama of the situation. For me, it's an accumulation of all that I loved about the sport - Schumacher taking the lead in his Ferrari in front of the tifosi going nuts with Murray doing so as well.

      https://youtu.be/gT43w0EDBPU?t=350

      I only became a fan of f1 towards the end of Murray's commentary career but it strikes me just how unique and special he really was when watching those old videos. His partnership with Martin Brundle in the comms box on ITV was a particular highlight and the soundtrack to my childhood and so far away from the cringey/forced 'banter' and 'discussion' that passes for sports commentary these days (Guy Mowbray and Danny Murphy anyone?)

      He just captured the sport perfectly, his exuberance always sincere and his passion always genuine, sourced from his vast encyclopedic knowledge of the sport.

      Many happy returns old pal.

      A true legend mate.

      I loved Murray's commentary and miss it even now. His passion for the sport always shone through and I did love it when he mixed drivers up from time to time and all his other Murrayisms.

      I'll never tire of the legendary Murrayisms! I don't think the spontaneity and adrenaline rush of his job can ever be captured better.

      Never tire of them. My missus never watches a minute of F1 when I have it on now but back when Murray was on she always enjoyed his commentary.

      One of a kind.

      Without doubt the greatest sports broadcaster that F1 has ever had. He could make ( according to some ) a boring race look exciting with his comments. 95 years young and still going well. Good old Murry.  :)

      Yeah. Would be interested to see less running if it means we get better racing,
      although the Mercedes issue could have more to do with them being made to close the rear axle.

      Watch Horner try to force the smarm in his delight with the soon to exit Daniel and not Max taking pole. I'd love it if Renault produced a stonker of an engine and a car next year and beat Red Bull with Danny lauding it all over them. Highly unlikely to happen but it would be hilarious. Can't wait to see what Renault have for next year - Danny Ric and big Hulk in support. Effortlessly cool lineup.

      Good result for Hamilton to start best of the rest in 3rd. Just needs to keep it on the track tomorrow (though the sentiment in me wants him to win it in Brazil where he won his first in such spectacular style 10 years ago. 10 YEARS AGO!)

      Watching the two red bulls go into the 1st bend it's all eyes closed.  :couch: Neither is going to give way. Hoping Hammy can keep out of the way and leave the Bulls to lock horns with themselves.

      Crofty needs to bite that tongue of his as it does get him in trouble. Vettel record looks pretty safe now as being youngest pole sitter. Personally would of liked Max to have got the record though.

      Mercedes having a terrible time with their tyres today - all about the percentages now for number 5 rather than aspirations for a great race result for Lewis. Seb steaming along rapidly on his second stint - a superb run of laps to overtake Danny Ric and Lewis. Max comfortable out in front.

      Hamilton and Bottas doing identical impressions of running off the first corner with their fu**ed tyres. Lewis still on for number 5 but big questions to be answered by Mercedes about their tyre management today. Atrocious.

      Mega job that. Truly superb achievement to equal the great Fangio's record. Thought he drove his best championship last year, went one better this season and I doubted him at the start of the year, wondering whether he would have the drive and ambition to do it again after fighting for the championship for the previous 4 seasons. How wrong I was. He's been faultless and his driving began to force the mistakes from Vettel. Stunning achievement.
