This year is getting extremely boring with Vettle winning 99% of the races

If he wins all the remaining races it will be close enough.

Respectfully disagree. If you just looking by the results, yes, but the actual race is very exciting.

So far only Valencia fail to throw in great racing.

Exciting to a degree. It's obvious that RBR has the upper hand over Merc and Ferrari in nearly all conditions. Imo, the reason we don't typically see 1-2 finishes is due to the team focusing on SVs car (pit-wise), and having MW suffer a few seconds a race because of it.

Also, I feel MW is a step or two behind SV the way both have been driving recently.

It's nice to watch all-around excellent execution by SV and his team, but the excitement would be much greater if each race was a battle for 1st and not 2nd.

History only remembers winners. (For the most part.)

Very true. It was only a few years ago that Massa lost to Hamilton by a single point and he's now talked about like a back-marker.

Agree with the folks here. Least exciting race of the season...very 2009-ish. Glad to see Vettel win though.

Thought these in-race quotes from LH were funny:

LH Crew: "Rear tires are hot."
LH: "I can't go any slower."

LH Crew: "I think we need to up our pace again for the next few laps."
LH: "This is as fast as I can go."

I just shook my head...
His race engineer must be thinking "I told you so..."

The only team that visibly modulates their pace in response to engineer communication is Red Bull. LH just drives however he pleases and so I really see no point in his team trying to help him find a workable pace. I'm just glad that most of that communication makes it to the world feed because it always leads to a nice chuckle.
