The forecast has been changing every 10 mins and is showing rain during the race. I live about 30 miles away and it's been raining on and off all day. Short sharp heavy showers which is then bone dry 10 mins later. The wind is coming from the NW so I suspect there's a pretty good chance of at least some rain.

I think this one is Verstappens to lose is the track stays dry, if it's wet, anything could happen. Even if Sainz is leading, I suspect Ferrari will **** it up somewhere along the line.

Should be a good one today.

Replay just shown. Thank god for the Halo. The Halo could well have saved a serious injury or life in the F2 earlier too when one car landed on the top of another.

I would say so, but he couldn’t have expected the outcome, and to be fair, he’s entitled to close the door. Trouble was, the other car was already there

Rules is rules.

And as for F2 - Nissany is an absolute bell end. It's only fitting he took himself out after purposefully hitting Gauger. It was a disgraceful move

Great race. Glad Ferrari only ****** the strategy for one of the drivers instead of both. Nice to see a win for Sainz and Perez got a 2nd chance - the earlier damage wasn't really his fault so good to see him in P2. Hamilton could have fought a bit harder after the SC restart - he seemed a bit timid sometimes, however a good P3 for him and Merc.

We need more teams in the top mix. Shame Verstappen and Russell had their incidents, we really could have had 7 or 8 cars fighting after that SC restart
