Rain came near the end and things got chaotic.
Lewis gets his 100 win
Max goes from 20th to 2nd.
Bad call by Norris cost him the race.
Lots of blown pit stops. Leclerc one cost him big time.
Very lack luster race by Bottas until the rains came.

I agree! I had this thought the moment they started to report some drops of rain, so not an after the race thought. I thought McLaren should have been more strict with their decision with Lando getting him onto intermediates, and not even asking him the question. The pit wall can see the radar and know that there was a heavy shower. There were many laps left, and knew how difficult the track would be even with slight damp conditions from the qualification/practice runnings. Gamble on the fact that Mercedes was very likely to pit Hamilton with a 40 second window so that he doesn't DNF the race and lose out on championship points. I don't put that on Lando, I put it on the team unfortunately.

But besides the chaotic rainy finish, what a race! Max's Redbull was a fantastic performer, and should make Mercedes very nervous knowing that a engine penalty will eventually be required for Hamilton. Seeing Sainz, Kimi, and Ricciardo in the strong points was a welcome sight.
