What an amazing drive by the man who could finish at the lowest 5th because of the disparity of the top 3 teams from the rest and had to rely on Vettel being a dick and team orders to prevent Bottas overtaking him.

I'm so glad his God answered his special prayers, clearly children with cancer are not praying hard enough.

If Hamilton believes that a god helps him through to win races, more power to him. I’m sure he’s aware of others suffering around the world, especially children, which he does a lot of work for various charities dedicated to children with no just illnesses but from broken families.

Bottas got one chance and he failed, after that Hamilton pulled away from him on older tyres. 

We wont know how it would have finished had vettel not crashed, but Hamilton was closing on the top 3 by 2  or 3 seconds a lap, may well have won anyway.

Already conceded the Bottas/Team Order point.

The rest, as you say, we will never know.

Any sportsperson thinking a God helps them win a sporting event is being ridiculous, and it is annoying to hear them say such things to be honest.

I understand how it can actually help their own confidence to believe such nonsense but I don't know why they can't see how inappropriate it is.  Why do they think their God (if such a thing existed) should help one competitor and not others? Don't they think their God likes fair sporting contests?

In an era where the sports pages are filled with stories of athletes seeking unfair advantages through the taking of illegal substances, surely it has to be conceded that attempting to persuade a supernatural and omnipotent being to intervene on your behalf is an attempt at cheating.

There will be no fair sporting events ever unless the Gods stop interfering and sportspeople stop their constant praying.

Hamilton on pole. I like the Hungarian gp. Mansell was superb in the Ferrari coming back from a dreadful qualifying to win. And damon hill in a go kart being robbed of potentially the best result of all time on the last lap to finish second.

Merc must have known that was always a possibility when they didn't stop Bottas when Raikonnen pitted for the second time.

Hamilton had that sewn up the moment Ferrari ballsed up Vettel's stop.

Shame we were denied Verstappen being in the mix today, would have shook things up nicely.

Spa after the break will be interesting.
