Like him or hate him, there's simply no denying his immense talent and fearlessness.

Crazy race. Sad to see Massa go out like that but nice to see everyone in the pits applaud him.

Max was just on another level hands down. And Sauber can finally say they have more points than Manor right now. LOL!!!!!!

Exactly , but that's only possible "IF" Red Bull can close the gap with the Mercs.
Mercs are out of reach for the moment.Or....Max in the seat of a Merc ?

Red Bull Pulling for Mercedes???

WTF was that shit all about??

Every team knew more rain was coming, and yet RB pits MV from a strong second place to put on inters??

Unbelievable.

So that's how it works now? Toto calls Max's daddy and gets blown off, so then he conspires with Horner to concoct a bullshit pit stop for Max?

Vettel is no longer the same driver, lost some confidence. He use to be a demon in the rain. Getting tired of his radio whining.

What a sensational race from Max.
Definitely in the Senna / Schumacher league. Dr. Marko said it reminded him of Donington 1993 (Senna in the wet).

Also, Lewis showed once more he is the greatest of this era. He would have lapped Nico if it wasn't for the red flags and safety cars. Such a shame if Nico wins the WC in Abu Dhabi.

He might not drive the last race. Apparently he went batshit crazy on the radio and blasted the team for something. I recall the NBCSN guys saying the exchange was NOT suitable for airing.

Just further reinforcing my concept of filming each race then watching later. Good grief, what was that, like 3:30 hours?

I don't think I've cringed that much in a race ever. If one more car spun out in front of speeding traffic which couldn't see them, ugh. It's incredibly lucky that nobody got tboned the entire race. Luck was certainly on everyone's side today.

I've been on the fence about Verstappen, he is obviously very fast but it was hard to determine if it was a lot due to his youth and fearlessness with often reckless risk taking or by god given talent. Well after this race I'm starting to think that not only is he by far the most exciting driver in F1 he could be the biggest talent since Senna. He made the rest of the field look like rookies today and not due to a far superior car. Very nice. If he can the tame his reckless streak he'll be even better. F1 should be thankful, they really needed a guy like this to make things exciting again.

Not as exciting and impressive as Senna charging through the field from 13th in the rain at Monaco ( not the easiest track to do that... ) in a far inferior car ( Toleman ) 1984 and being in the lead when the race was stopped at lap 32 but still, the talent of Verstappen is undeniable.
