This weekend, we return to the Portimao circuit in Portugal. Who can forget the carnage that beset the field last year on the restart? Hopefully, the drivers have learned from their mistakes. It's just the newbies at the rear who have to be educated.

Following a disastrous outing for Lewis Hamilton last time out, where, by some miracle, he still managed to finish on the podium and the title race is still on in earnest. Lando Norris' drive to place his McLaren on the podium showed how much he has improved as a driver. That, and showing Daniel Ricciardo his rain light as he took off into the distance. Biggest improvers had to be Ferrari with their terrible twins of Leclerc and Sainz filling the next best to the podium spots.

I am really looking forward to this weekend. Hopefully, so are you!

These results are sort of what I've expected other than Sergio Perez and Lando Norris a little further down the order.
I've never rated Lance Stroll that highly but he is continually outperforming Sebastian Vettel.
