That fastest race lap by Alonso in Hungary was intriguing. Let's hope the worst is finally over, Alonso sounded skeptical himself and attributed it to a track that fit the car, still a fastest lap is pretty impressive in this company. Here's for hoping

Evidently via tow from Kimi before Kimi retired. Hoping for an exciting race no matter the outcome.

MAX race is over and out, again ! Just heard his Renault engine went in a kind of safety mode with power loss ...
Bad luck again for MAX in his home race

His last words on the radio.... Unbelievable...unbelievable !

Bottas is leaving points on the table. He isn't getting everything out of that car. He better pick it up or he will lose that seat.

Poor race from Bottas today but he is a good team player and when you look at his results this season this looks more like an anomaly, especially taking into consideration how competitive Ferrari has been.

Bottas was in a solid third until the safety car, let's not forget that of course.

I like Bottas and he has proven himself in many races and qualifying so wouldn't give up on him yet. I hate for him to lose his seat BUT a HAM-VER Merc team would certainly be a crazy combination. I don't recall Bottas getting signed on for 2018 yet so it could still happen if they overcame Max's contract.

Bottas should be locking out the first row more often with Lewis getting these poles.

The speed is clearly in the car.

Taken the recent history with Rosberg I think Benz is perfectly happy with a calm nice team player next to Lewis that don't break cars and finishes races and mostly endup on the podium. Verstappen is more of a handful in every aspect and can easily upset the harmony in the team, extremely talented and entertaining as he undoubtly is.

I'm sure Lewis would prefer Bottas to Max. So if he indeed has any input into his team mate I'd bet on Valtteri.

Beautiful pics.

I wonder if Alonso just gave up on the car and retired it because he was getting passed by everyone and no longer in the points. I didnt hear anything about a problem with the engine.

As exciting as the driver's championship is, I think I'm even more excited to see what happens between Perez and Ocon the rest of the year. It's getting hilariously out of hand.

I can't imagine Alonso giving up ... nor any other driver. Now giving up on McLaren that's another story.

I understand that Alonso's been in talks with other F1 teams. I highly doubt Merc or Ferrari ... I'm guessing Renault. After this weekend I'd really like to see him take over Checo's seat. Alonso and Ocon ... that would be a good pairing.

Personally I'd like to see him in Indy next year ... but I don't think he's ready to leave F1 yet.
