I had to give Ocon and Force India a yippee and a fist pump. Really well done in the circumstances. Great team.

Yes, and the race looks like it will be a cracker.

So good to see Ocon Perform and put Force India in 3rd spot, WITH A PINK CAR. (In British stock-car racing, pink bodywork --- gallon of Dulux and a 4-inch DIY brush --- has been a popular choice by builder-drivers waiting for anyone to say a dicky-bird ----.)

Now, that Lewis really wakes up at the end of qualifying, doesn't he? Even more so in the wet. Who does that remind you of?

That wasn't "waking" up... ...that was just the track drying up, and
Vettel not getting it right on his last chance.

Yep, Vettel not getting it *quite* right and Hamilton getting it *exactly*
right, in incredibly difficult conditions. A great lap.

Sorry, but it's impossible to know whether Hamilton's lap was more right
than Vettel's previous lap because the conditions were changing.

Absolutely.

Is Hamilton one of the top guys? Absolutely.

Saying that he took pole on THIS day because he's better than the others...

...that's a lot harder.

To you, an honest assessment that suggests that things aren't quite so
black and white is "argumentative"?

Very good race, now on to Monza.

Took the break to remind us how awful the announce team is; one gets a bit numb to it week to week.
