With regards to the dislike for Lewis, I think he is being judged a little unfairly based on what you get from the media. Who do you think spends longest with the crowd after the Silverstone GP on the main stage and then spends ages signing autographs and taking selfies with the crowd? He even brought 15(ish) members of his family with him on stage this year so they could experience what the atmosphere is like after a British GP. Totally different person to the one you see on the podium doing the necessary for the team, and he really seems to come alive in this situation.

Also guess which Mercedes driver walks through the factory in the morning taking time to talk to everyone, and which one walks through with his head down ignoring everyone. This information actually surprised me as Bottas used to help the Williams team put up the hospitality until he got the drive seat.

No surprise Palmer has lost his seat. Shown very little to warrant his place in F1.

Love Suzuka as a circuit and these cars are spectacular around there. Lewis' qualifying lap was stunning. Looks like Lewis has got it in the title in the bag again. He completely deserves it too.

If you want a really funny F1 podcast to listen to, subscribe to For Formula 1's Sake - they review every race, they know their stuff yet have a proper laugh with it and take the piss out of whoever they fell like, not PC and that's what makes it great. Highly recommended.

A more interesting race than I’ve seen for a while. Is that Verstappen in the lead? Still to stop though.

It is and yes he hasn't stopped yet. Decent track this, not like the Monaco BS, F1 needs real tracks where you can over take.

To go from 16th on the grid to leading for a few laps albeit he hadn’t pitstopped is pretty good driving. 5th now after stopping.

Bolt doing the post race interviews, The Yanks spending some money.

Lewis pretty certain of a 4th world champ. The negative opinion of him on the BBC amazes me. We don't like successful people. Lewis is 'different' but to suggest he is not one of the best ever is stupid.

His treatment of the 'wake as wish' boy yesterday was touching and totally not required of him.
