You're right, I looked at Lewis' Q3 time but he was quicker in Q2 with a .338 so eff one got within .05 with his guess. A very good guess.

I thought that was quite an exciting race until the last quarter when there wasn't much going on. I thought Nico took a bit of a risk passing Bottas given what happened earlier in the race and got somewhat lucky that Bottas saw him in time to abort his turn in to the corner.

Try 0.006, so an outstanding guess!

Yes - how uncomfortable viewing was all that? I did not think this race should go ahead after the annexation of Crimea, the airliner incident, and ongoing war in Ukraine. People might say that sport and politics are separate but half the shots seemed to be of Putin, they looked pretty intertwined here! Typical of the F1 circus not to care.
Tim

I think they're both from the same mould aren't they?

Maybe Putin is being lined up as Bernie's replacement

I could claim that I looked at the track evolution on Friday and the weather forecast, and worked it out... but it was a total fluke
