At least that TWAT Hamilton didn't win as much as I despise Vetel.

McLaren may was well save money and just drive ordinary Honda road cars for the rest of the season. At least they'd probably finish the race.

Bottas needs to get with it. He still shaves his face! Apparently, the fashion these days is for F1 drivers to look like homeless people who live under a bridge.  :)

Car set up, tyre preservation, pit strategy even safety cars play a huge role in the results.

But the most important thing is that the car doesn't break down during the race! :p
