I don't understand. Why should a driver be playing with switches and buttons?? when racing????

In short, life would be far more simpler without them, however with technology in the play, they are as essential for maintaining proper inputs as air we breath. Some changes are initiated by a driver, others by a voice in the ear plug. Limit 3 PU per season are closely controlled and monitored (to last) by bunch of nameless and faceless individuals sitting in the pits, and connected with the driver. (Recently people at the home-base were added at MB to monitor essential data in real time). 

As long as we are running hybrids, buttons will stay, like them or not.

To keep stress on the PU at minimum, engineer will always turn down power to minimum and what is race specific strategically acceptable. This is why when a driver has a ("safe") lead, he will be asked to manage gap. There is no max racing the the finish line anymore.

That first MadMax overtake on Hamilton was sublime. The race had some nice touches to it. 

Hamilton for me the driver of the day. Drove brilliantly, attacked when needed and read the race perfectly. It is now two races this season, where he had really impressed me.

It's going to be a titanic battle this year. The prospective challenging the protector. EPIC

Tarmac surface notwithstanding, both protagonists finished race without excursion into farmland. Schumacher finished race, Alonso had not too bad... so it's behind us.

Great race by Alonso too

Ocon was a little better, and SLH putting on a masterclass, according to the BBC F1 Chief  F1 writer Andrew Benson. Who was totally right.
