Although, do I really trust Rosburg's comments on Hamilton? Maybe not.

Seems like Mercedes is having more mechanical issues than in previous seasons. The teams are very close and it's those last several percentage points of performance that are the most difficult to obtain and make reliable.

Vettel is not a rainmaster (like his hero Schumi).

I was hoping for more rain and an unexpected winner (not someone from a top team).

... and we are officially at the August break. Next race in the Belgian Grand Prix on Aug 26. Hamilton has got a bit of a lead in the driver championship (although all he has to do is DNF while Vettel finishes in the points and it is gone), Mercedes is only 10 points ahead of Ferrari in the constructor's championship.

This is the part of the year where drivers start to pull penalties because of too many mgu/mgk/transmission penalties, too.

Not a great day for Red Bull, apparently Horner had some very pointed remarks during/after Hungary and Renault hit back. So the same as any race day in 2018.

wow... iam so happy to know daniel move to renault

works mid field team is always better than customer top field team!
i believe too, no.1 and no.2 driver in renault is less significant than in redbull.

ok, so daniel is happy now, how about poor alonso?
i hope he is smart enough to leave mclaren to hass or maybe redbull!
i guess alonso will have some moment regret he not join renault 1-2 years ago, unless he is looking his bank balance more than f1 news

I suppose Ricciardo could have no faith in the move to a Honda engine, but moving from the #1 "rest of the pack" team to one of many mid-pack players seems odd. Particularly since the Renault engine seems problematic. Might also mean that Red Bull just wasn't giving him the terms he wanted, but if it was solely money, he'd have been better off at Red Bull.

Hadn't heard about Daniel. I wonder if knowing the team focus will slowly turn to Max influenced his decision?

Gonna be a tough few weeks to get through. Guess I better stock up on beer. Maybe go outside or something.

Interesting. I think Renault has to increase their budget by 100% in 2019. Ricciardo is the de facto #2 driver, so I think this makes sense for an "older" driver. RB seems to favor the young guys, like Verstappen and Vettel.
