Congratulations to Hamilton for win number 100. What an unbelievable achievement!
Gutted for Norris, he's been the driver of the season IMHO.
Good recovery drive by Verstappen with some luck - without the rain he wasn't finishing better than P7.
Who destroyed an engine of VER and stole 25 points?
Verstappen was penalized because when he was taken out by Mercedes, his engine was damaged, thus require him for an extra engine change and thus starting at the end of the pack. That is on the championship level, not the individual race.
Honda engineers examined the engine and said it was fine. Verstappen used it all through practice at Hungary. I doubt any driver will escape engine penalties this season. Time to move on, I think.
Too bad for Norris but it was his fault, he could have gotten the inters and insured 2nd place at least. HAM needed a bit of convincing but in the end trusted his team and it paid out.
It's always a very tough call when you're leading a race in changeable conditions with just a few laps to go and you've got someone (not to mention a 7 x WDC) chasing you hard. Damned if you do, damned if you don't. Even Hamilton ignored his team's first call to pit for inters.
Man that was very lucky for VER, RBR were awful with their strategy all race. And ruined Perez's race.
He did luck into P2 with the rain, but the team still had to make the call to switch to inters. He was complaining about his tyres all through the race and only managed to make a set of hards last as long as Hamilton made his mediums last in the first stint.
