Sebastian Vettel take the victory in the first race of the Formula 1 2017 season!

Church’s Bells in Maranello rung the entire Sunday!


My best Italian friend is telling me:

We are aware about Mercedes power, but once in a while we can ring bells in Maranello!


 

Private notes:

Great job done by Grosjean, until the engine failure on lap 13.

  • Palmer follow Grosjean and retire on lap 15.
  • Marcus Ericsson DNF on lap 21 after what seams to be a hydraulic failure.
  • Daniel Ricciardo has had an terrible first race weekend at his home Grand Prix, he had to stop the car on the track at turn 3, lap 29. Possible motor failure.

Lance Stroll retires on lap 44, tough start for him.

Magnussen retire on lap 46, it has been a really bad day for Haas F1.
