Good run by Russell,Ocon.

Two cars collided on track and they called a VSC for 2 min. Should of been a SC right away.

Pirelli football helmets ?
I thought the Austin cowboy hats were bad enough.
What are they going to do for Las Vegas?
Oh great,spaghetti confetti!
Max was winded, these guys did not expect such a physical race. The circuit kicked their arse. And most are supposed to be in top fitness.

Bottas ran wide and on to the marbles. He gave away his position. Shame really.

Great placement for Russel considering where he qualified. Ocon, yes he's finding his rhythm.

Mick, sigh, another round gone.

Agreed, the SC should have been deployed as soon as VSC was enabled. It's a tight circuit, no need to put others at risk once there is an incident. Gut instinct says some drastic changes will be made to the circuit, for safety and drivability. I also think the shoddy surface will be replaced with legitimate asphalt otherwise this will become a hated circuit very quickly.

I like the Texas hats, the helmets though.. Yeah a bit too NFL'ish. Must have said at least 100 times "there have been 6 super bowls here." Yeah I don't care.

The plastic string confetti was a dumb idea, it was getting caught in the drivers hands, feet. Paper would have been much better to be honest.

Gut instinct says crowds will be smaller next year.
