    Vettel still going to be champion this year .... even though I feel he drives unnecessarily aggressive at times. If he wins all 5 he is champion, even if Lewis comes 2nd at all 5 as well.

    It was the cool down lap, most if not all drivers do not follow the racing line, and instead drive off it to pickup rubber before the car weigh-in.

    So Vettel should have been more cautious.

    Oh yeah, I do agree with you on one thing though, Vettel is gonna win the Championship

    Meh, think it's going to be one way traffic at the front tomorrow. Hopefully for the sake of interest (at the front anyway) the Ferraris and Red Bulls' race pace is better than their qualy showing.

    Renault has announced the departure of Jolyon Palmer at the end of the Japanese Grand Prix weekend, with Carlos Sainz to join the team from the US Grand Prix.
    Nice guy but not cut out for F1, I am surprised he lasted this long.

    In other news : The F2 championship has been wrapped up by LeClerc taking the win earlier today .

    https://www.motorsport.com/fia-f2/ne...finish-962759/

    Ferrari Formula 1 junior driver Charles Leclerc sealed the 2017 Formula 2 title with victory over Oliver Rowland in the Jerez feature race that built to a thrilling conclusion.

    Antonio Fuoco completed the podium in the second Prema-run car after leaping up the order following a late-race safety car.

    At the start, Leclerc led away from pole as he made a better start than Luca Ghiotto and Sergio Sette Camara behind him.

    The 19-year-old then put in a string of blistering times over the opening laps – at times pulling out 0.7s per lap on Ghiotto behind.

    Rowland, who started fourth, made it up to third on the opening lap.

    Despite losing out to Alexander Albon in the first few corners, he reclaimed fourth at Turn 3 and then muscled his way by Sette Camara at the exit of the downhill Turn 6 hairpin.

    By lap 10 of the 39-lap event, Leclerc was 6.9s clear of Ghiotto, who lost further ground over the next few laps and came under pressure from Rowland.

    The DAMS driver seized second on lap 11, attacking with DRS down the pit straight and moving ahead into Turn 1.

    Leclerc had eased to a 11.7s lead by the time he and Rowland pitted on lap 12 to switch to the medium tyres.

    The Prema Racing driver then methodically caught and passed the drivers who had started on the harder rubber – including Fuoco and Nicholas Latifi, who took over the lead during the middle phase of the race.

    Rowland did likewise, but had to catch and pass Albon and Sette Camara all over again as they had undercut him while he battled past Ghiotto.

    When Leclerc eased by Latifi to retake the lead at the final corner on lap 21, it looked as if he had his sixth win of the season easily within his grasp, despite Rowland putting in a series of fast times.

    But when Santino Ferrucci and Nobuharu Matsu****a clashed at Turn 1 on lap 32, putting the former up on two wheels and out of the race, the safety car was deployed, erasing Leclerc’s advantage.

    After a three-lap interruption, Leclerc maintained his lead at the restart – with Rowland having to pass the lapped Sean Gelael.

    But Leclerc was visibly struggling for grip and the run to the flag became a three-lap shootout – with added confusion as the lapped Gelael and Louis Deletraz had more pace than the leaders.

    With Latifi and Fuoco – now within touching distance of making their alternative tyre strategies work – closing in too, the final stages were nailbiting.

    But Leclerc, sliding all over the Spanish track, held on to win by just 0.2s.

    He now has an insurmountable 68 point lead over Rowland in the standings with three races remaining.

    Fuoco, who got ahead of Latifi at the chaotic restart, ended up just 0.9s behind his teammate despite starting in 15th.

    Latifi was therefore fourth, ahead of Artem Markelov, Jordan King and Ghiotto, with Alex Palou eighth and on reverse grid pole on his debut F2 weekend.

    Sette Camara and Albon faded to 10th and 12th in the gripping final stages, with Matsu****a last after having his front nose replaced.

    I watched it , was absolutely brilliant. LeClerc with completely trashed back tires on the last lap had to work hard to take the crown .
    LeClerc definitely has talent , looking forward to see him racing in F1 next year .
