Re: Easy to blame the VSC
"The same thing (not being able to follow closely) seems to have affected at least half the field according to the post-race interviews (Force India and Red Bull "for sure"), and is definitely the bane of modern F1 for me."
I took that as the cars became unstable in the dirty air so they lost power. I think Hamilton had the car to over take the Ferrari but couldn't because the car kept over heating.
"Is it really? I've seen quite a fair few races lately where he doesn't impress and gets stuck midfield. Frankly I wouldn't be surprised if Bottas gets replaced next year."
That's how I saw it, he's had some good races and Austrailia, for me, was out of character. But he'll be replaced anyway with Ocon or Wehrlein.
