Agreed - Vettel's car simply snaps sideways - much like it did a few times last year. I wonder if there is something about the Ferrari that when it gets a bit too much yaw it loses most of the downforce on the rear.

Tell you what though, Lewis has been living right the last couple years - he's had pretty amazing racing luck with a few races falling in his lap. Also really impressed by the Mercedes reliability - I honestly can't recall the last time Lewis or Bottas dropped out with mechanical issues.
