Too bad that stupid mistake from Max cost us seeing a 6 way fight.

As competitive as this season is, it is too bad that aero turbulence, engine temps etc prevent actual passing even when the cars are close. This track doesn't help.

Otherwise I thought it was a very entertaining race. Didn't know for sure Vettel would hold on with his steering issues. Hopefully this is a sign Ferrari will stay competitive untill the end. Sure looked like the Mercs were pulling away for a few races there.

Alonso is a beast. 6th in that awful McHonda with fastest lap. I hope they either figure things out in 2018 or he finds a more competitive team.

God I hope Kimi wins a race at some point. Guy deserves it. Too bad it didn't happen at Monaco.

I'd be sold on the closed cockpit if they looked like this. This gallery is gorgeous.

I had a chance to scratch off a life long wish off my list a few weeks ago, and finally attend a F1 race in person, at the Hungarian GP.

On one hand it was hell on earth. Hot as balls (probably around 35 degrees), everything was 5x the price it should be, and it absolutely packed with people (probably over 100,000). On the other hand the atmosphere was fantastic and the chance to walk on the track and see the pits was really neat to see. What was also a nice bonus was the F2 and Porsche Cup races beforehand.

The race itself was a bit of procession with Ferrari dominating, but it was nice to see Alonso getting a solid result.

No matter where, I would highly recommend attending a race if you get a chance. The race itself is almost secondary, it's the atmosphere that really makes it worth it.
