Can't really argue with too much of that - but they do go round in circles really, really fast  ;)

Was hoping for a bit more excitement today. For once one of the new tracks looked half decent but in the end it was all a bit of a damp squib.

Agreed, im not a fan of many of the new circuits but this one looked like it had potential for passes and incident. Didn't really catch fire today.

I saw a couple of laps and thought the circuit looked crap and doesn't surprise me if nothing exciting happened.

No helmets, driver's get out the car to change their own tyres/re-fuel, cyclists, traffic lights... Would be much better.

Suprised no ones mentioned Lewis driving around at 100mph :D his team telling him to drive faster and him telling them to do one

He's not the most likeable chap but I don't see what else he was supposed to do yesterday. Wasn't dangerous and he just rocketing off into the difference wasn't going to help him. In truth the last three seasons have been dead boring because Mercedes have been ridiculously dominant so hopefully the new regs will level the playing field.

I think LH will leave Merx if not this season then next - I think he feels the German ownwers are favouring the German driver!?

Where next Red Bull? LH & Verstappen, maybe not.

Red Bull have already said the don't want him.

Wouldn't be too surprised if Merc tries to nab Max for the 2018 season

Any team would be daft not to sign Hamilton, literally the best driver, forget all the other guff.

Max Verstappen is great but is slightly too mercurial at the minute.

I don't think so, I think there are two or three contenders for best driver, Hamilton and Rosberg just happen to have the best cars at the moment. It was the same with Vettel when he was with Red Bull

Most seasons someone driving the best car wins.

It would be nice to see all the drivers in the same spec car, to see who really is the best driver

F1 hasn't been the same since they brought in all the regulations which killed quite a few teams, then they created more regulations to level the playing field apparently...

Ditch half the regulations and F1 will be great again

Shame for Hamilton, won more races this year but his car hasn't been the most reliable, not being funny but his car should be the best, teams used to have a main driver and a secondary driver...now they have a conflict of interest because F1 has become a constructors championship not a drivers championship

For me Lewis was right to slow down and try to let the others catchup and overtake Rosberg he wanted the title

Mercedes could have both crash out of that race and the constructors championship would still be theirs

Im hoping he leaves and goes to another team...if only Ferrari could get their act together with the cars

A bit surprised but he has gone out on a high, so I don't blame him. I bet he returns though....

Would love to see Verstappen get the drive - the Hamilton toys will well and truly fly out of the cot then!!!!

Could they get button for one year whilst others are unavailable? Could he be tempted and I know he is still contracted
