    Odd race....all building up to an epic final 5 laps with 4 cars going for victory but it was as a flat as a Wolves 1st half performance in the end.

    Lewis takes the win thanks to a gamble from Merc to go 1 stop and do it early. Max's weekend got worse thanks to a clash with Lewis and then Bottas which saw him get pick up a puncture and go to the back of the grid.

    Title all but sorted. If Bottas wins next weekend then Lewis will need to take just 4 points. If Bottas doesn't win then the title is bagged (Current lead 74 points with 78 the max Bottas can get. Finishes 2nd with a fastest lap the lead would be down to 55 points and if Lewis didn't finish the race it would leave it with 2 races to go and a max of 52 points up for grabs)

    Quite a lot of damage to the side of Lewis’s car too - did very well to keep Vettel at bay.

    New rules and regs announced today, the new cars will look rather nice I think. Spending cap introduced too.

    Probably won't happen, it won't get past Ferrari, Red Bull, Mercedes. It'd be like turkeys voting for Christmas.

    They’ve all already agreed to the spending cap.

    The track in Texas is looking shocking. Bumps everywhere and a huge one on the exit from the pit lane

    Conspiracy theory hats on in F1 today

    Ferrari have been the quickest car in F1, certainly since the mid season break. Been a few rumblings they may have broke the rules. They have been growing and this weekend, Ferrari snapped and told anyone who wanted to come and check their car to see if it is legal, they are free to do so......same weekend they lose all the pace they had gained since the summer. So just a bad day or the removal of the bits used to get the extra speed

    Anyhoo, decent race yesterday with the split strats between Bottas, Max and Lewis. Worth trying the 1 stop for Lewis as he had nowt to lose really. Nearly took the victory but a 2nd place and World Title numero 6.
    Been a very different season from Lewis. usually kicks on from the summer and destroys the field in the 2nd half of the season but this time it was the 1st half of the season that gave him the title and some very consistent drives after that

    Shame about that yellow flag at the end, would've been interesting to see Max try and have a proper go at him in those last couple of laps.
    If you see a Possum, try to kill it, 'kay, it's not a pet.

    Max would have nicked 2nd. Lewis had zero defence with what was left of his tyres.

    When Bottas tried and was forced off the track you could see Lewis was fighting a losing battle and 2 laps later didn't even defend the move and he certainly wouldn't have tried to block off Max.

    End of the road for Hulk, which is a real shame.

    Line-ups are looking pretty set for next season now with Latifi all but confirmed at Williams leaving Albon/Gasly for the Red Bull/Toro Rosso seats. I'd be astonished if Albon doesn't keep it.

    I'm not convinced there's that much coming through at GP2/GP3 level at the moment, certainly not at the level of Charles, Lando and George so we could see the beginning of a pretty much settled 20 over the next few years.

    I can see Ferrari trying to get Schumacher in the Alfa team in the next 2 years. He hasn't done that much this season but they will still promote him.

    He has showed some promise this season but was wildly inconsistent. He's in the right team to progress, so I wouldn't be surprised to see him replace Kimi in 2021.

    Albon confirmed at Red Bull next year.

    Leclerc will have a 10 place grid pen this weekend.
