1. By the way, one does not mess with a Swede. ;-) 2. Eh, I think I’ll just stick to my Big Red, thanks. 3. I think we can safely say that Red Bull had its head on straight and Ferrari’s smarts aren’t exactly 100% engaged. 4. I guess Helmut Marko knew what he was doing when he promoted Verstappen. 5.

Excellent analysis of the first lap action and I think you both rise above the ‘I like this guy so this guy was right’ partisanship and call these incidents with expertise and objectivity.
