It's quite a nice combination - street circuit, which means no margin for error, plus enough opportunities for brave drivers to get ahead, which means no procession. It maintains a level of tension throughout the whole race, unlike a lot of modern designed circuits.

I'd like to think Grosjean's car was unsettled by an unexpected gust of wind or something, because otherwise that was just the most pathetic accident.

It seems to be a track that really invites mistakes, we don't usually see quite this many outside of practice sessions where drivers are pushing the limits. Locked wheels are really punished because of the tiny run off areas, overtakes in corners that are too narrow for it, and debris from collisions has now caused problems two years running.

The madness of it all. Bottas was robbed.

It was a crazy race and no mistake, made all the crazier by the Russian torrent of it that I grabbed by mistake. Didn't understand a word of the commentary but it had all the standard FIA graphics on-screen. Particularly amusing was the pronunciation of some of the names - it was a shame that [russian]Nyyycyyyo Hyylkyynbyyyyrg[/russian] went out so early, as I could have listened to them say his name all day.

Bottas was really unlucky, I saw him go over the carbon-fibre pieces and thought that he could regret it, and regret it he did. Vettel's attempted overtake was a moment of madness, I don't know what he was thinking. As for Verstappen, the boy needs taking behind the trailers and giving a damned good thrashing. I suppose at least he had the good grace to wipe himself out as well as Ricciardo. That accident was itching to happen throughout the entire race.

Was a good one though, really enjoying this season so far even if bloody Hamilton did get the win.

I didn't watch the race, but I see Grosjean had another mad moment. The replays do him no favours whatsoever, the stewards have given him a 3-place grid penalty next race.

Yeah, I can't see him lasting past this season unless he starts pulling out some amazing performances. He claimed that he felt the inertia carrying him towards the centre of the track so he tried to gun it and get out of the way... except the inertia was clearly sending him off the outside and spinning his wheels up was what carried him 'round and into the centre of the track. It's a shame as I think he's a good driver when things are going his way, but these silly mistakes are really costing the team; they're sixth in the constructors at the moment but it's entirely down to Magnussen - Grosjean hasn't scored a point yet, the only other driver besides Sirotkin. The Haas is a really good car this year, and the team ought to be up there alongside Renault and Mclaren in the constructors.

Ferrari have had their funky halo wingmirrors banned. They're also having to explain to the FIA how their battery system works.
