I think nobody expected that.
RUS just couldn't pass NOR getting his DRS over and over from SAI.
Brilliant!

Brilliant!
SAI helping NOR with the DRS helped flummox Merc and I can only be happy with the way it turned out overall, it's only SAI's second win which was well overdue.

Well, that puts the TD to rest.

The RB was quick in race pace, especially on those mediums at the end.

Normal service will resume in suzuka 😁

Max is about to gap the field twice for not winning.

Nevertheless . Still a great race from MAX at P5 .

Since Monza , the Ferrari pace is extremely strong and in Qualifying too !

It won't be easy to beat the Ferraris in the rest of this season ...

Glad to see that SAINZ makes Ferrari happy again .
As I said at MONZA : FERRARI IS BACK !

Congrats for SAINZ and Ferrari

I'm still not sure about that . We'll see it within 7 days at Suzuka..

I'm pretty sure, Ferrari is the team to beat and that won't be easy ..

I hope SAI gets more appreciation now at Ferrari.
At some point he was really treated as a 2nd driver, but his performance at Ferrari in the last 3 years is pretty much on par with LEC (2021 SAI was better, 2022 LEC was better and this year SAI currently leads again)

Looks like SAI is the boss there at the mo and Chas just can't get the hang of the 'still' tricky F23 which is probably with a less aggressive map for safety as I mentioned previously.

That was a BRILLIANT race by SAI. Intentionally controlling the position was masterclass and "overriding" or not following pit wall orders was the icing on the cake (in a positive way).

Unfortunate for LEC but that's two races after the break where Ferrari is looking very strong. Suzuka should be fun to watch but being an aero track, VER back to winning again. HAHAHAHH

Russel clipping the wall before the corner was indeed 100% drivers error.
Probably fatigue and a small lapse of concentration.
That'll haunt him for a long time.
For us it gave an interesting twist to the finale

2 weeks ago at Monza , The Italian La Gazzetta Dello Sport :

Charlie Isn't the pretty boy anymore . Sainz is now the wonder boy !

The Italians , oh boy !

Trust me, I was watching the lap times and data from the entire singapore race.

The RB was lapping consistently faster than everyone up until GP told Max to slow down and protect tires behind Ocon, then the SC came out early and everyone was on new tires while they had 20-25 lap old hards.

But once those MEDs were on, he was lapping 3 seconds faster than everyone, and was on the same pace as the Mercedes with low fuel load and fresher tires.

He almost caught LEC at the end too.

Suzuka is where they'll be able to test out all their upgrades that they couldn't here, and the Ferrari still has bad tire deg compared to the RB.

And if it rains in Japan, which often it does, RB is guaranteed a win as Max is very good in the rain, and Ferrari straight line speed won't be an issue.

The TD has not affected anything on that RB, or Max wouldn't be able to work his way up the standings on pure pace.

It's for sure , something was really off this weekend .
Today MAX said more than once : I'm driving on ice ...
I still think It's by the new FIA regulations !

The rear of Checo's car looked like boogie dancing !

Hopefully RB can fix it next weekend at Suzuka . HONDA's Japanese home race ...
'Japan the land of the rising sun . As you know , I work for them too ...
