Action packed first lap.  Red Flagged.  Next 77 laps were mostly follow the leader, but we had a different leader than VER.

MB is getting their act together just in time for Hamilton to leave.

I seriously don't understand why everyone wants to go to Ferrari.  Sure, they were great 50 years ago, but I've been watching F1 since 2011 and they just continue to be a 3rd or 4th place team out of 10 teams. 
Personally I think this is a bad move for Hamilton.   

I am surprised we don't have a decision for Sainz yet.   I wonder if he is holding out for a chance with MB?   He has been very consistent this season and with 1 less race than LeClerc is 4 points behind LeClerc and in 4th place. 
McLaren is looking really well, and with Perez tanking as of late, have a real chance at the Constructors.   Not sure if its bad luck or what, but ever since Perez extended his contract, he just has not performed.    Meanwhile Norris is knocking at the doorstep and Piastri is right there with him.

There's a great Jeremy Clarkson quote from Top Gear years ago, to the effect of "Ferrari can only do one thing right at a time. If they've got a good F1 car, their road cars and Le Mans cars will be forgettable. If they have a good road car, the F1 and Le Mans teams suffer."

I think that was said about the 458, which debuted in 2009...the last time Ferrari won the constructor's championship was in 2008. They just won Le Mans, so maybe in a year or two F1 will be next?
