Practice results seem all over the place making it hard to determine who’ll do well in the race.

Think I’ll wait until qualifying before I vote.

Not sure how credible this is, but it appears that Mercedes and Red Bull have been asked to change the front wings they used in Friday practice

I guarantee it won't be a Williams.

As did I. Hoping there’ll be a Leclerc podium too and both Haas in points.

Other than the start, Leclerc’s battle with Bottas and Albon’s spirited drive to 10th, I’m not sure there was much in the 1000th F1 Race.

Congrats to Lewis and the silver arrows. This is shaping up to be another season for them. Bottas must be ruing his start. I thought Lewis was peerless.

Leclerc should have finished on the podium, but I guess Ferrari need to keep Seb happy too.

I think the tires all need to last about 15-20 laps max to mix this up a bit and keep it interesting.

The podium looked fun though, all were smiling. Pity for Leclerc, but I read something about them favoring Seb for now, I wish they'd let them race and not do team orders. At least Seb was honest about it afterwards, he thought he had the pace but really didn't it turned out. Leclerc's attitude about it is very mature, quite nice to see in F1 nowadays.

We are witnessing history in the making. Whether or not, he equals and beats Schumacher’s championship tally, Lewis will be remembered fondly among the greats for a long time. He not only chalked up win #75, but also joined the elite club of leading 4000 laps alongside Schumi.
