When our tyres started to work better, the victory was on our side. But the interesting thing is that, even in these days when the Bridgestone tires were not working at full strength or in General was really poor, Michael still finished second or third. Such feats no one else was capable and not capable of until now.

If the race will benefit Hamilton and Nico get ahead of both pilots of Red Bull, the title will go to Lewis.This result was already at the Grand Prix of Germany this year.

The ex-pilot of Formula 1 season champion-1997 Jacques Villeneuve believes that the FIA is engaged in a conspiracy against the whole of the championship, covering the actions of max Verstappen.Jacques Villeneuve "For me what happened is simply outrageous. In the incident at the start I still had my eyes closed, because the pilots Ferrari and saw what you were doing. All knew the risk. But all, even the pilots of the Junior series, you know that the climb inside of the first turn is dangerous and it ends up in accidents.Okay, the first turn passed. But the fact that direct was Max doing with Kimi and SEB - a flagrant violation of the rules Verstappen, stop this nonsense You can kill someoneThe worst problem of modern Formula 1 - FIA. I have no doubt that the Federation covers Verstappen, wanting to make him a superstar. They will not stop, no criticism and no its breaking the rules. Can get away with it. Think of Germany where Rosberg got a penalty for nothing. Then Nico and Max are both widely came into the turn, and it all happened because of aggressive defense position by Verstappen. But max said nothing, and German, the Challenger, received a fine.I hate such injustice, there is clearly something wrong".
Pilot Mercedes Nico Rosberg said that in Belgium he will be fighting not only fined by the partner, but also with the pilots of Red Bull.Nico Rosberg "Lewis was fined, but it doesn't change anything in my approach. I am in a race trying to fight for the victory, regardless of what is happening around. Now Lewis will start behind me, and this is partly to make it easier, but there are still pilots of Red Bull, which is incredibly effectively fought with us in the last races. In Germany, they are ahead of me, so the race will be complex and ambiguous.Recall that Hamilton will start from the tail of the peloton after his car twice will replace the power plant.

So I missed a little of just about seven million".The rest of the season Haryanto will hold as a reserve pilot's Manor.
