I didn't see any blue flags nor did I hear any mentioned in the commentary. According to the F1 web-site you're not subject to penalty until you've ignored three of them.

Five years from now, assuming they persevere, I doubt we'll see anything close to the same behavior from either Max or Esteban.

Max, yes. Esteban, no. He'll be selling Renaults in some small French town.

The blue flags can be seen from Esteban's onboard, around T1.

Although the other argument that doesn't work for me is the conspiracy theory that Ocon deliberately held up a Red Bull to favor Mercedes, as Ocon is part of the Mercedes Driver Development Program. Not really believing that one.
Ocon never races Mercedes cars, not even for position (check Monaco). He will bend over backwards to let them through. This is one of the reasons why letting lapped cars go hard at the race leaders to unlap themselves is lunacy. Imagine the incident didn't happen, but instead we get three laps of wheel to wheel battling between these two, and then Hamilton gets within DRS range and passes Max. Unlapping should be done without impeding the leader, it's common sense.

So is not turning in on a car you're not clear of.

I'm happy to see Robert Kubica has earned a race seat for the 2019 season with Williams. I've always thought he was quite talented, I hope Williams can give him a car that will start a return to their former F1 glory days.

I am glad to see the two pay drivers leaving Williams.

I'm waiting for the 2020 rules to see what direction the series will be heading.

Does anyone know who will be broadcasting F1 in the USA next season? I wouldn't mind if the coverage is a repeat of this year, where ESPN re-aired Sky Sports F1 coverage. Love the commercial-free races.

I wouldn't mind, no, I'd celebrate if Varsha, Hobbs and Matchett were reunited.
