    So, in summary...
    Albon was dropped from the Red Bull Driver Academy, and signed for Nissan E-Dams Formula E team, but then was re-admitted and joined Torro Rosso this year, and has now been promoted to Red Bull partway through a season to join Max Verstappen, who was promoted to Red Bull partway through a season to replace Daniil Kvyat, who was previously at Torro Rosso, promoted to Red Bull, transferred back to Torro Rosso partway through a season, dropped from the Red Bull Driver Academy, and then re-admitted to join Torro Rosso this year.
    Pierre Gasly is still in the Red Bull Driver Academy, which led him from Torro Rosso last season to Red Bull this season, but has now been swapped with Albon partway through a season to re-join Torro Rosso, to become teammate to Daniil Kvyat, who was previously at Torro Rosso, promoted to Red Bull, transferred back to Torro Rosso partway through a season, dropped from the Red Bull Driver Academy, and then re-admitted to join Torro Rosso again.

    Did I miss anything?

    I guess the Ferrari International Assistance were never going to punish both red cars in their home GP. But really, what is the point of the B&W flag (apart for Juventus and Newcastle supporters) if Leclerc can later cut a corner to retain his place after making a mistake.

    Have to say, with the farce in Q3 and this ridiculous misuse of penalties (or not!) this weekend's race was a bloody joke.

    I quite enjoyed the race tbh. Qualifying was clever people trying to be too clever and catching themselves out. Muppets

    Yes, I did too. But just what is the B&W flag supposed to mean? I'd thought it was "last chance" but clearly not. Of course we don't want to see too many pelanties, but having been given a B&W, Leclerc shoukd have been given (at least) a 5 sec pelanty for his second offence.

    It's not as if such tactics weren't expected. It happened earlier - as it has done in previous years. Why not introduce a one-off rule for Monza (or even every meeting) whereby there must be a minimum/maximum time between each car leaving the pit lane for Q3?

    Best Monza I've watched for a while.

    Charles did a great job all day, knowing where he needed to be fast and where he could save a bit.

    Fair play to Lewis for taking the gamble early on the medium tyres to try and get ahead of Charles. His pressure when he's following is incredible. Obviously didn't pay off but it made for some good viewing.

    Sebastian. Oh dear. It's not easy when you don't have Massa and Webber to beat each week.

    Or Adrian Newey designing the best car by a large margin.

    Edit: No doubt he's a talent, just not a fan and never have been.

    Hamilton and Norris all the way :D

    Edit: I like Verstappen too, he's a good watch but am a bigger fan of the above.

    I can't warm to Max at all. For some reason he just f**ks me off and I find myself rather happy when he's piling into the back of someone at turn 1.

    Having said that, I appreciate that he is rather talented and is very good for the sport.

    Singapore next, could be a good weekend for him.

    Same here. He's talented for sure, but I don't like him.

    Couldn’t stand him to start when he was a total liability each time he drove but I’ve warmed to him now & he on the whole has been racing hard but fair. Imagine him, Lewis & Charles all slugging it out @ the front. If McLaren get a little more pace then add Lando to the mix. It’ll be brilliant

    Great race - I stayed awake for most of it Didn't expect a penalty for Leclerk on Ferrari's home turf. The stewards wanted to get out alive after the race

    I agree with the comments about the no penalty. It was close, but if it promotes close racing then great.

    The big question is, why is Rosberg in his airing cupboard?
