They had problems with Bottas' gen two engine during practice.  Ham's pass of Vettel was epic.  Shows what DRS can do.  Mid pack racing was amazing.  And team Pink was in the points again.  Great race and I can't wait for Monacco.

Team Pink is really doing great!

The Ham / Vet race was solid. Strategies played a huge roll, but damn. The medium tire is awesome this year. Both cars ran their fastest laps on med compound tires.

I should be receiving royalties from Team Pink.
May the Schwartz be wit you

I forgot to mention the best part of the race.  Liberty media is on top of the game.  Catching that young kid in the crowd bawling his eyes out when Kimi crashed was touching.  But then they went and got him and his family and took them to the hospitality tent to meet Kimi was an excellent 'feel good' moment and shows their commitment to get the fans involved. The interviews in front of the crowd after qualy and then this show of humanity.   Well done Liberty.

Ferrari keeps making blunders on strategy about the tires. The pink team keeps on putting points.
Overall it was a good race, I think the next race will be even more interesting, since it is very difficult to pass during the race.
