I think Nico screwed the pooch this time, I just hope this increasingly bitter rivalry doesn't wind up causing damage that can't be repaired.
Lewis Hamilton to McLaren-Honda for 2015. You heard it here first..

I had similar thoughts but have to wonder if Lewis would allow even the appearance of Nico having the upper hand and forcing him away from MB, I have my doubts about that.

I just hope they get through the rest of the season without anyone getting seriously hurt, I keep thinking back to the feuding Gilles Villeneuve/Didier Pironi and we know how that worked out.

It was a very clumsy racing incident... all on Rosberg. I still prefer this than having a race to the first corner and then team rules implemented.

Ricciardo once again impressive. What a driver. Bottas was driving circles around Massa as well. Hamilton and Rosberg must be fearing that this new generation will simply take over without letting them win more titles (or a first one, in the case of Nico).

It was also nice to see Kimi having a clean weekend. He loves Spa and it showed!

I kinda think the rule about not taking out your teammate is a good one.

Both Ricciardo and Bottas are both having GREAT F1 debut seasons.

Massa reportedly lost much time due to debris from Hamilton's tire lodging under his car.

It will be interesting to see if he's finally found some comfort in the car and does well the rest of the season.

Looked to me like Nico was on the inside, and Lewis came across his bow and made contact. These F1 drivers like to run people into the grass, and it looks like Lewis was going to attempt that. Except that Nico was already there. Oops.

Lewis has the talent, but I don't think he has the ability to win a psychological battle. Look how he faltered at McLaren in 2007 when he and Alonso were teammates. All he had to do was get a halfway decent finish in China, and he beaches the car coming into the pits. Then he hits the rev limiter in Brazil on lap 1 and watches Raikkonen take his title.

I agree, I hope Raikkonen finds some pace in the car, otherwise Ferrari may be asking him to leave once again.

I think this is Bottas' second season with Williams.

And Ricciardo made his debut in 2011 with HTR.

I remember Ricciardo taking Vettel's car he won the title with at Abu Dhabi a couple years ago and besting his lap by over a full second on the test session the day after the race.

But you never know the circumstances in test laps. Fuel rate? Tires? Weight? etc etc.

So what was it that got stuck on Nico's radio antenna?
