Interesting race results due to an interesting first lap (aside from the top 3). Albon gets his career best finish and only the top 5 finish on the lead lap (which I think is a first for this season).

Leclerc may still get a penalty due to his contact with Max on the first lap. I know that Ferrari wanted a point for fastest lap, but they had an over 20s gap back to 7th before pitting which would most likely have been more than enough to cover any possible time penalty. It was inevitable that Mercedes was going to win the constructors championship this season so I dont get the push for delaying that becoming official by one race.

On a separate note, Sainz has now overtaken Gasly in the points for 6th and is winning the "F1.5 Championship". Seems that he's a solid yet underrated driver. Hopefully McLaren continue their upward trajectory to exploit his talents.
