I figured that was a no brainer. I read that they left him out because they were actually reasonably positive that Perez would get a penalty from passing Bottas, because he went off the track a little bit. But the penalty never came.
That's possible, but Perez didn't run him off the track Bottas was driving his mirrors. You need to look where you want to go.

I meant Perez going off track. He apparently exceeded track limits during his overtake on Bottas. But nothing was done about it.

I misunderstood, thought somehow he forced Bottas off track. When I saw Bottas go so wide after the pass I figured somehow Perez was getting the blame for that. Totally missed him going over track limits.

Didn't Russell fill in for Ham last year because of Covid and kick ass?

Yeah, qualified second, fastest lap, and would have taken the win if Mercedes didn't screw up his pit. Could see it in the future, but I feel like it still might be a little too soon for Mercedes to pull him for next season. I don't think they'll drop Bottas before he leaves them. He hasn't really gotten the treatment he deserves for someone who has delivered in the past.

Them aside, I haven't picked a team to support, even after following the sport for a while. If VAG ends up not being a team next season, RB has a new fan, and not just because of Max. It's awesome seeing a team that essentially matches mercedes performance level, and can give them serious competition in terms of strategy. Max and Checo go extremely well together, even if it does end up being a Weber/Vettel pair like torga said.


Good race. Trophy is a big monkey. Worth it just for that.
