Ham is a typical Englishman... a continuous whiny bitch. If he won the lottery he would complain the ticket cost a pound.

Ive also got some family in the RB team, but I rarely speak to them

That was a really fun race.....Bottas :lol: Perfect karma for all RBR's whinging pre-race.

Salute to Alonso, perfect car placement in defence, did make an error in the end but those laps handed the win to his team.

Hamilton looked physically wrecked at the end, struggling to breathe, maybe medical tent might've been better than getting up onto the podium.

Only 5 grid penalty for Bottas and Stroll?
After all the long term damage (points and money to be spent) they recklessly have done to McLaren, Red Bull, Ferrari?

Russell with the great team player role. Gave Latifi a buffer and asked the team what gap and times were needed to hold back max and Dan whilst guaranteeing points for them both.

Sebastian Vettel's second-place finish at the Hungarian GP is in considerable doubt due to a suspected fuel rules breach.

Vettel has been referred to the stewards by FIA F1 technical delegate Jo Bauer, who confirmed on Sunday evening that the German's Aston Martin car contained insufficient fuel at the end of the race.

The F1 regulations state that "competitors must ensure that a 1.0 litre sample of fuel may be taken at any time during the event" - and only an insufficient 300ml could be removed from Vettel's car in Budapest.

Aston Martin's Sebastian Vettel has been disqualified after finishing second in the Hungarian Grand Prix.

Officials were unable to take the mandatory one-litre sample of fuel from the car after the race.

Governing body the FIA said it was possible to pump out only 0.3l from the car and that it was no defence to claim no performance advantage was obtained.

The decision promotes Mercedes driver Lewis Hamilton to second place and Ferrari's Carlos Sainz to third.

He does moan a lot. Basically every time someone doesn't pull over at the side of the road and stop to let him past.

Well and also about his tyres even when he is leading.

It is also ironic that he chose to complain about the same medicine he himself handed out.

Absolutely love the older, maturer, humbler versions of Alonso and Vettel. Probably two of the most likeable guys on the grid now.

Fernando showed today why he should never be forgotten in the debate for best drivers ever. The positioning of his car was unbelievably good. Won that race for Ocon, and could clearly see he was delighted for him too. Gutted for Seb, but it's nice to see him enjoying himself again regardless

Alonso defended very well until he couldn't handle the pressure anymore and made a mistake. It was taking both Lewis and Max time to clear cars. I think Max was stuck behind Ricciardo for about 10 laps.

I think most of them would have had a moa in that situation. Although in general Hamilton does moan a lot more than other drivers as soon as things look to be not going his way. He gives the impression at times he is giving up but his actions say otherwise. Like when he was in 14th an moaning about it being impossible to pass. Just like later with Alonso he stuck with it and got the job done.

Lewis, purely because of featuring in the mix for so many race wins must get more chat aired on the live broadcast than most?

Hamilton's style of feeding back to his engineer includes a bit of emotional debriefing... call it moaning but I think it's just his style.

Agree.

Lewis has become so much more strategic and patient in recent years. Yesterday his team screwed up and put him in 14th. He didn’t whinge at all. He just said “let’s put our heads down” and worked hard through the field. He pulled out of several dicey passes on Alonso which young Lewis would have probably have crashed on (like Max does).
