Great race, weather made it interesting but so did the strategy calls and the wild card of the ultra-softs keeping everyone guessing. Not sure what was worse, seeing Hamilton bailed up by Bieber enroute to the podium, or watching Red Bull throw away a Daniel Ricciardo win for the second race in a row. Although the t-shirt Bieber was wearing was probably worst of all, and worth the swig of champagne from Hamilton - the boy needed some sort of reward for wearing that shirt on global tv. But, enough of the bad stuff - how good was it to see two McLarens in the points, with Alonso getting close to fourth a few times in a race where the Mercs were both on it.

Honourable mention to Perez for putting the Force India on the podium, and nice call out to VJ who has had it tough recently by all accounts. Kyvat had another shocker, and Verstappen's luck seems to have well and truly run out. But worst of all the two Saubers taking each other out, perhaps we have found our new Maldonado? Unfortunately no appearances from the local wildlife this year, although a grey ghost did trigger a virtual safety car for a short time.

Roll on Canada - a strong track for Ricciardo and Hamilton in the past.
