    Yeh I think Vettel had his time. Even if Vettel was in one of the Mercedes cars he wouldn't do as well as Bottas . Now I think it's going to be Verstopen and LeClerc knocking on the door eventually . I also think the Mercedes camp put more power in Hamiltons car than Botta's . It was a straightaway when Hammy passed Bottas . I think it'll be Mercedes on top once again this year . Ferrari was doing well at the end of last season don't know what happened to them this year . On to Barcelona !......

    This may create some new excitement !
    The way its been going you could almost bet on the outcome of a race .
    It'll be a sight to see Vettel in another suit ......
    I wonder if the Aston team will be able to keep the brake duct system they copied from Mercedes ?
    Love Mercedes (have two) and Aston Martins ! And , of course , my Jag .....
    Monza had some fresh faces on the podium , good to see .

    The best thing about F1? Err......
    Motogp - sorry I went off it after the professor retired.
    Mind you - even the 2-wheeled stuff can get a bit processional....like Kawasaki in WSBK (but, that’s ok - I have a Kwacker too).
    Given the above perhaps the best racing is in BSB - even the small budget teams get a realistic shot at a trophy.

    The best 4-wheeled sport = Le Mans, with tiddlers on the track at the same time as mega-bucks kit (oodles of cheap French beer does help it go down though - proven over 2 years experience when the Jags returned in the ‘80s).
    This Jag is a 56 plate X-type 2.0d Sport manual with parking sensors, 18” Aruba wheels, midnight pearl metallic paint, warm charcoal leather seats, grey interior, piano black dash and a Bury CC9060 ​Music Bluetooth unit. Now features no front valance and no engine undertray - ‘weight saving’!
    My other Jag is a ZX-7R
