    Sad way to start it but John Surtees former Formula 1 and motorcycling world champion has died at the age of 83, his family have announced.

    As for the F1 testing it looks like this might be an interesting season as Ferrari are looking pretty good in testing. Mercedes might have some real competition this year. Looks like McClaren's problems are continuing though.

    Very pleased for Lewis. Once it started raining I knew Lewis would most likely win. Vettel can't drive in the wet.

    Never saw the race , listened on the radio as I drove. I know Ferrari are blaming that young Belgian / Dutch Punk, I know Verstappen has history as being a little reckless, but it sounds from the comments here that it may have been Vettel's doing? I'll watch the highlights later.

    Ferrari put out a Tweet (which has now been withdrawn) saying

    "Max V drove into Kimi and then drove into Seb"

    Watch the start and you decide.

    You are absolutely right. It was a stupid and, more importantly, unneccessary move to make.

    I am pretty surprised Vettel didn't get a penalty. I can't help thinking that if Lewis had pulled that stunt he would have been penalised.

    Oh. In that case I feel it is therefore my responsibility to advise you that you missed 4 races earlier in the season

    I watched the Jackie Stewart interview with Lee Mackenzie. That man has done so much to make motor racing safer. A true legend.

    As a Hamilton fan I was delighted with the race although it would have been more entertaining with the others still in it, as for the crash I think it was just a typical racing incident at the start, I suspect they did not expect Kimi to be where he was.

    It looks like Riccardo dropped his own bombshell on the other two in the press conference
