    I think Nico wins this on his own merit like last year. But the story will be who is in front at RBR.

    Where's the option for "Verstappen will smash Vettel"? haha

    If Hamilton actually has a race with no mechanical problems or getting run off the road turn 1, he's going to take it. Barca is always a boring race, because every team has done a billion laps there (well except Renault or Honda haha) and they know exactly what tires, settings, wheel nuts, fuel pressure to use before even arriving at the track.

    Rosberg's luck has GOT to run out haha. He's been luckier on reliability compared to Hamilton for the last 2 seasons too which is nuts.

    I love how he turns to Lewis at the end, "did you know?"

    I just hope someone else wins or at least a close battle for a change.

    Not anytime soon I guess. Lewis is now on his 4th MGU-H and I think he has a new turbo now too. Guy can't catch a break.

    Rosberg's fault there. Of all races to pull that off, it's where Dr. Z shows up. Was looking forward to seeing Mercedes try to win every race.

    Edit - lauda blames Hamilton. Let the fireworks and Hamilton to Ferrari rumors begin!

    Edit2 - replay shows Ham's front wheels alongside Ros rear wheels before forced off the track. Will be curious how FIA interprets that crash for penalties.

    Rosberg at fault IMO. I was looking forward to Lewis' race.

    After the meeting Lauda now says its Rosbergs fault.

    McLaren needs to hold on here.

    Looks like the Red Bull / Ferrari battle will come down to tire strategy more than anything.

    Vettel sounding like an entitled bitch again on the radio.

    So the start incident, what happened was Lewis had a better start, Nico used all of his ERS power to blow past Ham, and Ham concedes T1. At T3, Rosberg was out of ERS power, so the car goes into harvesting mode and Ham closes in at a crazy rate. That's how they got into the situation there.

    18 year old Max Vestappen!

    Youngest F1 winner. First time a watch engine wins a race too!

    TAG Porsche doesn't count, TAG was just a holding company.

    Nice job by Max!

    Bad luck for Daniel with another puncture, not sure if he could have got past Vettel though.

    Looks nice Nico was in the wrong mode and distracted with the steering wheel which caused him to not see Lewis' move. Still at fault IMO but let's see what the verdict is.

    Yea, the TSN post race show is awesome, that analysis by Davidson was so detailed. Sums up this:

    in videos perfectly. Looks like Nico "cheated" by using a different mode off the start which drained the battery to get by Ham in turn 1. What's crazy is after flipping modes back, he watched in his mirror as he forced Ham off the road, so can't say he didn't see him at all.
