Ed001: I agree with all your points regarding the Japanese Grand Prix.
I like to add one more point :
Ferrari, trying to get that single point for the fastest race lap while Leclerc was around 25 seconds ahead of Ricardo, pitted him and brought the gap to 5 seconds or something. And once the race was over they were left with 15 second penalty (which demoted him to 7th) and no fastest lap. So, I think Ferrari and Leclerc lost 2 points while trying to get 1. May be they should sent him after Sainz without going to pit stop. May be I'm being hard hung on them, as they wouldn't have known that they would be punished with 15 second penalty.

{Ed001's Note - I think they had the choice of either sitting tight and struggling on tyres or making a stop and going for the extra point while being safe on tyres. I am pretty sure they said his tyres were going.}

Ed001, What do you think about the upcoming Japanese Grand Prix? Last year, both Mercedes and Red bull dominated Ferrari. Do you think there would be any reversal in fortune for Ferrari?

{Ed001's Note - Ferrari look to be ahead of the rest now, but they still struggle in outright race pace. I can see it being a Ferrari front row and then the two scarlet cars spending the race being hounded by Mercs and Red Bull. I wouldn't be surprised to see McLaren hang on to their coat-tails either. With it being Honda's home circuit, it is likely they will have been burning the midnight oil to get their engine to its peak, so we might even get Toro Rosso on the back of it too. The only problem will be if anyone gets past the Ferraris, then they won't be able to conserve tyres and have to push to chase, which means the pace will be too hot for McLaren and Toro Rosso then.}

Thanks for the thoughts, ED :) Looking forward for this weekend race :) Have a nice day.

Ed001: As per predication, Ferrari had the pace and qualified for the front row. But, they are new methods to screw the race for each time : (.

{Ed001's Note - to be fair they both threw it away at the start, Leclerc just a little more brutally than Vettel.}

@Ed001: Will there be a review for the 2019 Singapore Grand Prix? I'm looking forward to it :)

Manchesterunitedrumours

{Ed001's Note - it is done, Singapore talking points, the links just haven't been done yet. I meant to put it up to get the review of the day auto links as I wasn't able to do a review of the day on Monday night, but missed the time cut off and so it never autolinked. My error, I was recording a Liverpool podcast and just never noticed the time, as we had a bunch of technical glitches. Took us 6 hours to record the pod in the end. Nothing went right!}

@Ed001: Sorry, you faced issue after issue. Thanks for the points :)

{Ed001's Note - no worries it happens. It wouldn't have been so bad but we had to delay starting by 4 hours just to begin with, so I ended up finishing at gone 6am here. I was very ready to sleep at that point.

By the way, I have to take back what I said about Leclerc whining now, as I have heard his interview since and I understand his unhappiness. He was told to keep slowing the pack when Vettel went in and changed tyres and not told Vettel had done so. Vettel came out pushed like mad, while he was still being told to take it easy and that is why he lost the lead. Suddenly I can see why he is angry with the team.}

Agreed Ed.
Do you expect Ferrari to continue the form in Russia?

{Ed001's Note - yes. This is their true pace finally being achieved. They had the faster car but made errors initially in their upgrades and set up, which left them struggling to get speed out of the car. Now they have figured out where they went wrong and once more have the fastest car. The only issue they have left to sort out is tyre wear, as they do wear through their tyres much faster than the Mercs, so they are unable to push as hard in the race.}

@Ed001: Do you think Ferrari sided with Leclerc and change their strategy to get him P1 after the Pit stop.
Ironically, that Vettel's MCU-K failure affected Leclerc Race too.

Manchesterunitedrumours

{Ed001's Note - yeah I am certain they did, Vettel was even telling them over the radio his rears were gone to try and get them to box him and they kept just fobbing him off.}
