I love the reaction of still going hard right hand down.
A bit like Lowndes when he says his foot was firmly planted on the brake at Calder '99.

Finally Ferrari using a strategy that saw them win.

That would be the goal for the rest of the year IMO.
Use the cars wisely to get one in either 1st or 2nd, and let the second car finish 4th.
They keep trying to maximise each car which pulls them back to 3rd-5th and under pressure from Max.

A lead in to tomorrow's race at Monza. Alex Peroni's crash in an F3 race:

Wonder how all the people bagging on the halo feel now.

We could have had potentially three deaths within a week if the halo wasn't there. Galael's halo copped a massive hit from debris in Hubert's crash.

It does seem like Peroni's car landed halo-first on top of the retaining wall, although it is kind of hard to tell if it was a direct hit/drop onto it. Nonetheless, I am sure it did help.

On a Monza racing standpoint, good for Dan and Renault! Their best team results of the year. They had some legs on those yellow karts. However, when watching Vettel and his Ferrari just cruise on past them on the front straight, it makes you realize that everyone else other than the Mercs and Ferraris are running for best in class.

Good race! I signed up to Kayo last week and watched the whole weekend. Really enjoyed it. Great job by Leclerc and good to see Renault finally deliver.

Welcome to the 'foxtel' fold. You'll never look back.

Was a fantastic race. LeClerc wasn't going to lose it, it was either he wins or controversy.
Good to see someone putting the shoulders up, Bottas can't do it, and Max is limited by the Red Bull.

Serious pressure on Seb now... could we see him step away?

And not even on his quickest lap that saw him through to the next session.

Bloody tough call, but I guess the line needs to be drawn.
A better penalty would've been, as Dan suggests, to just not allow the lap that it happened on (similar to 'gaining an advantage off track').

Lewis doing what Lewis does best in Japan and complaining about his teams strategy...
It's always a good race when Bottas gives Lewis what he's been getting most weekends - the alternate strategy.

First Dan is DQ'd from Singapore qualifying, now Renault is completely DQ'd from Suzuka for a pre-set auto brake bias device! I wonder what will kill them this weekend in Mexico?

Renault won't appeal Japan disqualification
By: Chris Medland

Renault will not appeal its disqualification from the Japanese Grand Prix because it has no new evidence that could overturn the stewards’ decision.

Racing Point protested the legality of Renault’s car at Suzuka, claiming it was using a pre-set automated brake bias system. After analysis from the FIA Technical Department the system was deemed to be legal according to the technical regulations, but the stewards still felt it constituted a driver aid and therefore broke sporting regulations, leading to the team being disqualified from the results in Japan.

Renault initially considered appealing the result, which cost it a sixth place for Daniel Ricciardo and 10th for Nico Hulkenberg, but confirmed in a statement on Thursday morning in Mexico that it is unlikely to be able to overturn the decision.

“We regret the stewards’ decision and, in particular, the severity of the sanction applied,” the Renault statement read. “In our opinion, the penalty is not proportionate to any benefit the drivers derived, especially when used within the context of a system confirmed fully legal and innovative. It is also inconsistent with previous sanctions for similar breaches, as acknowledged by the stewards in their decision, but expressed without further argumentation.

“However, since we have no new evidence to bring other than that already produced to demonstrate the legality of our system, we do not wish to invest further time and effort in a sterile debate in front of the International Court of Appeal concerning the subjective appreciation, and therefore sanction, related to an aid that reduces the driver workload without enhancing the performance of the car.

“We have therefore decided not to appeal the stewards’ decision.

“Formula 1 will always be an arena for the relentless search for the slightest possible opportunities for competitive advantage. It is what we have always done and will continue to do, albeit with stronger internal processes before innovative solutions are brought on track.”

The penalty confirms Charles Leclerc in sixth in Japan ahead of Pierre Gasly, Sergio Perez, Lance Stroll and Daniil Kvyat, with Renault now just six points clear of Toro Rosso and 10 ahead of Racing Point in the constructors’ championship.

Hamilton wraps up how 6th championship and there is little raving or noise about it most places. Seems only the real die hard fans stuck around for the domination bore fest and anyone from slightly below could not give 2 ****s.

RIP LJ - loved and never forgotten.

"It was dry for the second go-around. Grice, nervous, worrying about his Bathurst jinx, ran 2:25.9. The amazing Brock, using every last centimetre of bitumen, yet keeping the car straight and balanced and at full noise, came back with a staggering 2:20.0 as if to say: "Match that". And people just shook their heads, bit their lips and wondered who would be second".

The Peter Brock trophy is now where it belongs.
