Snoozer of a race. Too bad the Mercs had so much pace over everyone else.

Could have been interesting if the Red Bulls hadn't been fucked by grid penalties as well.

I don't understand what STR is doing...

 - Give up a decent engine

 - Give up a good driver

 - Get a shitty engine package

 

Considering STR is Red Bull, they don't need the money... so what is Honda or McLaren giving them for such a shitty trade?

 

Renault and McLaren are the real winners out of this...

I think RBR still wants off of renault, so maybe they are sacrificing STR as a sacrificial guinea pig in the hopes of perfecting the Honda motor.

Maybe RBR wants out and are hoping Honda would end up buying STR.

Unless Honda develops some crazy upgrade over the off season, STR is screwed until 2021 when the new engine regulations kick in...

 

Other options would be Mercedes (ha), Ferrari (which STR already had), and Renault...

Wow, that was so much fail by Ferrari in such a short distance. Disappointing that RBR race pace was practically non-existent

Vettel boned that one...why did he take such a big risk so early in the race?  

He has shown signs of cracking this year...making really simple mistakes, like when he ran into Hamilton.  If he loses this, it will be his own damn fault.

Also...yeah....I don't understand how this engine swap is a good idea at all.  Honda hasn't shown any progress in 3 years, what makes RB think they are going to fare better?
