    Ferrari says their power wasn’t affected by the technical directives because of Red Bull questions. Straight line speed now on par with Honda and a Mercedes. Ferrari says it’s because they’re running higher downforce which is slowing their straight line. Meanwhile they’re 6/10ths down in the corners in S3.

    Vettel spinning on an outlap just sums up their season. So delicious.

    I thought Leclerc missing out on his final blast because of "vettel dragging" was an absolute exclamation mark on the last run of 3 years. As much as the dominance has been for Mercedes, it's shitty to see Ferrari perform so poorly.

    Kinda blows that the last race as exciting as it can be is so early in the morning.

    I can’t wait till Ford vs Ferrari comes out. So many Ferrari memes when people have access to angry Enzo at the track footage.

    Charles Leclerc's car under investigation for fuel before the race.

    Edit: Gee, Leclerc seems quick on the first lap

    Mercedes should have given bottas Strat 2 5 laps sooner. Wtf. It's crazy to see how friggen quick quali vs race trim is.

    Anyone see an update on Leclerc fuel "issue"? Seems like it could be the explanation for their increased engine performance...Also, what does "significantly different" mean when it comes to fuel? 1kg? .1kg?

    EDIT: Looks like there was 4.88kg difference between FIA and Ferrari's measurements. However this was within limits, so just a 50k Euro fine.

    There is no increased performance for Leclerc today. If you’re referring to how he got past Verstappen, it was more Verstappen struggling for grip first lap. He mentioned it in the cool down room. Even Vettel got past at one point, but couldn’t make the pass stick since he was on the outside.

    That was a great race to end the season. Glad they never showed the sainz or perez passes though until after

    They didn't even show it after haha. The replays was of Hamilton crossing the line and fireworks from 2 different angles.

    Yup, I thought it was pretty dumb. Didn't even have an angle to show max's and charles' attempted donuts
    Sainz getting 6th was a very big deal in this era. Reddit and the F1TV clips does a far better job on the midfield coverage.

    Man oh man did this ever irritate me. I mean sure, watch HAM cross the line but go straight back to the action!!! We missed out on incredible last lap wheel to wheel action.
