That was part of the reason they changed the points; to make it so a win was worth more than just grinding out second. But by throwing in so many races, there's a huge number that allow that difference to be made back up by the opponent having an incident in just one.

Yeah the increased points was a good move. I wonder how more races affect the mindset, as you say it diminishes the importance of an individual race. Does that mean people take more risks, or they don't as its not worth it? Maybe it has no effect.

Bottas a bit poor round the first few corners but awesome comeback within a few more corners.

Might as well show the chequered flag now because this is how the top 5 will finish. Can't believe Merc made this call when another VSC is quite likely.

Maybe not. Those tyres didn't last long at all!

Hamilton should have pitted. I know he's gained 3 places but a pitstop would have only cost him 1 place and the pace he has been showing, he could have gained those 3 places, and have fresher tyres for the end.

Good recovery drive from Hamilton. Bottas got a little hung out to try with his tyres, poor bugger.

Exciting race! A solid performance from Hamilton, with a bit of luck. Gutted for Bottas though.
