I genuinely believe that off the back of this race the FIA will need to review the 5 grid place penalty for engine replacement. If Mercedes had done this sooner they probably would've realised they can just get a new engine every few races and turn up the mode to whatever insanity it was yesterday and make up the places in a matter of laps.

TLDR: I expect FIA to change it to at least 10 place penalty for engine changes to prevent abuse

Even with a 10 grid place penalty I dont think it would be impossible for the merc to catch the pack.

100% agreed, although I don't think adding 5 place penalty to the current one would change much. 90% of Hamilton overtakes were on the main straight, some of them didn't even require DRS. It felt like Mercedes were racing in F1 and the rest of the cars on the grid were brought in from F2, the superiority was embarassing

Imagine the scenes if merc show up to every race from now on with another new engine lol

definitely curious how tough the brazil gp was on their engine, seems like they were running it in basically quali mode whole time

Engine shenanigans, penalties or non-penalties aside, I don't think anyone can deny this was easily in Hamilton's top 5 drives. Maybe not everyone likes him, but we'll miss him when he retires. I certainly hope the fights with Verstappen (and maybe Russell, Leclerc, Norris, who knows) will continue into 2022 and beyond.

If we go HAM 1, VER 2 with HAM getting fastest lap in SA, will will have tied points for the final race in Abu Dhabi.

Not sure if it’s possible, but what would happen if they tied in points after the last race? Would the person who came in first win (out of ham and ver)? And if they both DNF?

it goes to the driver with the most wins, then most seconds, etc

Usually when there is a new track coming up(even when it's just an old track coming back), it's a non-stop barrage of articles and videos out of Formula1.com in the weeks leading up to the race. All we got a few weeks ago was a video of what looked like a track three months from being finished, and now it's absolute crickets less than a day before the cars are supposed to go racing. I have a feeling they've half-assed the construction and got the bare minimum done to get the cars out on track. The lengths they'll go to for their oil money while snubbing historical tracks; and virtue signalling about human rights and "green energy" along the way, of course.

there was 2 or 3 racing laps in the f2 race earlier, after delays for track repairs and then 2 crashes that both caused lengthy red flags. not promising signs
