I was one of those idiots who hated the halos when they were proposed.

Now I love them!

A major reality check for F1.

I still don't like the look of the halos, but it's hard to be opposed to effective safety measures in a motorsport like this. I don't think anyone would want to go back to the days of F1 when a high risk of death just came with the territory.

Still Grosjean was lucky his car broke in two pieces right behind his back. Otherwise he might have caught trapped into the cockpit because of the halo, and be burnt alive.

The more you look at the replays of his escape, the more you realize how many lucky breaks led to his survival.

On Grosjean's YT page there is a picture of him smiling from his hospital bed.

I called him The Miracle Baby in the comments.

End of another exciting (perhaps too exciting at points) season.

The compressed schedule was a little too much IMHO. 

Hopefully, it was an exception and otherwise,  F1 did a great job of presenting the fans with some great entertainment.

Personally, I don't like to see races without at least a weeks break in between. 

It seems less like a special event and just another tv show.

Just my uninformed opinion.

I will wait to make a judgement on the expanded season next year but it feels like Liberty may have too much control over the season.

I enjoyed the race, although I'm surprised that no one blamed Verstappen for what happened. Maybe he didn't need that much advantage nor hitting the fast lap.

Monaco and Baku are my favourite races, those urban tracks are great, and Baku has the advantage of allowing overtakes.

Good race in France, kept me at the edge of my seat till the last lap. Disappointed with the outcome - I was rooting for Hamilton.

Seems like Mercedes need to work on their pitting strategy. It has costed them a couple of races just in the last few weeks.

Exciting and interesting race indeed. 

Still not impressed with Mercedes’ strategies. It probably costed them the race again. It was impressive that Hamilton fought all the way back to the podium. 

Now that the Mercedes no longer has the commanding lead in the pace of the cars, they ought to do better in the other departments to retain their world championships streak.
