Max owes Alonso massively for stopping Lewis winning that race 

And Ocon.

 

Very happy for him winning the race. Vettel 2nd too. @Tommy will be delighted.

Even though I'm a Seb fan, it's absolutely amazing to see Ocon winning the race. Just like Gasly last year. 

Fernando with an incredible drive to defend against Lewis like that. He played a big big part in Ocon's win today.

What a race. Ocon handled that brilliantly leading for that amount of time.
 

Lewis getting a podium from last comes as no shock to anyone which says something in itself. Only he could have done that. 
 

Alonso rolling back the years and stopping Lewis from winning the race, at 40 years of age. 👏🏼

Pretty sure plenty of other drivers have done that before.

Remember when Hungary was viewed as one of the worst races? Can't remember the last bad Hungarian Grand Prix. That one really took the piss. Brilliant. The Alonso Hamilton battle was one of the highlights of the last few years. People bum overtaking but there's a real art to great defensive driving that I actually think is more impressive than getting an overtake done. We've lost a lot of those battles due to DRS making overtaking easy on most tracks and midfield teams becoming overly conservative and flat-out letting faster cars past them without a fight to maximise their own race. Today we saw the perfect cocktail of DRS actually working as it should, allowing the car behind to keep up but still having to work to get the overtake done, Hamilton on one of his trademark hard charges and Alonso, who is the best current driver by far at putting his car in all the right places while skirting the line between what's allowed and what isn't.

I'll maintain that Hamilton and Mercedes are lucky to be leading both championships. Hamilton drove brilliantly today as he has all season, and as Max has as well. They're both going to get the maximum out of the car on basically every lap and the difference is going to be on who makes more mistakes. You'd think given their relative experience that it would be Max but it really hasn't. Some people have been trying to establish a narrative following the Silverstone incident that Max should have been more careful but all sane analysis that I've seen has pretty much agreed that, at worse, it was a 50/50 incident where Max and Red Bull ultimately took all of the damage in terms of championship points. Outside of that incident, Lewis made major mistakes in Imola and Baku as I described earlier. Nobody can really point to a big mistake by Verstappen.

It's not letting me post the second half of it and I don't know why. No naughty words in there and I can't even screenshot the rest of the post because I have a new phone and I'm too lazy to look up how. 👎

I think there are several drivers on the grid who could have done that in that car. 

I strongly disagree. And I’m sure more people here will agree with you than they do me. But ah well :)

This is amazing btw, probably my favourite thing about the whole race. Huge for Williams and for the sport, even if the circumstances helped them massively they both drove superbly

Can I just ask how Raikkonen only got a 10 second penalty for an unsafe release that literally took another driver out of the race, and Bottas only gets a 5 place grid penalty for taking two cars out of the race and heavily damaging another? 

But nah apparently the stewards are now more interested post race in pulling up Vettel and other drivers for wearing the wrong t-shirt during the Hungarian national anthem in support of LGBT+ rights, and then Ocon has to go and see them for leaving his car at the end of the pitlane.

Bore the fuck off.

On the current grid, I think Kimi stand outs with the number of comebacks during the race.  Just to name a few most impressive ones:

Australia 2003 - pitlane to P3
Suzuka 2005 - P17 to P1
Bahrain 2006 - P22 to P3
Fuji 2007 - P22 to P3

The comeback drives used to be even more impressive when there was no DRS though. I'm currently in 1983 season of F1 historical races, and the US GP West was a fantastic watch. John Watson and Niki Lauda started from P22 and P23 respectively, and finished at P1 and P2 xD

Yeah he didn't look well there on the podium. Confused, dizzy and disoriented. Sounded a bit confused numerous times on the radio during the race as well?
