Quorn isn't "healthy" by any means (that's such a nebulous term I hate using it but anyway), but meat is a defined carcinogen by WHO,
Meat isn't - some meat products are and excess red meat probably.
Poultry definitely isn't and fish reduces the chances of cancer.

You're right that poultry hasn't been demonstrated to increase cancer risk, but there is very limited evidence that fish decreases the risk of cancer. What has been demonstrated for decades however is that certain types of salted fish increase the risk for nasopharyngeal cancer.

Agreed, lets debate food in an F1 drivers thread ffs.

Lewis didn't seem very happy in the press conference.

Too chilled!!! Hmmm. Is that a bad thing after that race.
I'm watching it now... Lewis is a bit flat but not moody. Maybe he's reflecting on the days events, lack of consistency with penalties and how the rules of engagement have now clearly changed. Who knows but seriously, I don't see anything to make something out his demeanour.

Maybe he knows he's reached his personal peak, while Charles and Max are young and evolving ?

Well I'm sure he can lament that fact whilst he strolls to his 6th WDC

More gold from Mr Blinkers

Easy there fella, only you would look at that result and come up with that comment.
Seeing Ferrari were expected to win that race Lewis did very well to be as close as he was to CLCs gearbox..
Remember he didn't need to be. He could've gone into Prost mode and cruised around for an easy 3rd, get the points in the bag for the title and leave Bottas to take it to Leclerc.

I'll agree with you Charles is evolving, Max... you've seen his last 2 races right?
And for a driver who has reached his personal peak, Vettel appears to be that guy wink

I didn't think he looked troubled. He wasn't exactly excited but that really isn't unexpected IMO for a guy who's won more than 70 F1 races, finished a workmanlike 3rd in this one and not because of a car problem, track problem or anything else to wind him up, and got useful points towards his championship. Nothing there to get excited about, neither in a positive nor negative way.

It was probably, in his world, an unexceptional day at work.

As for peaking, I'm sure he's not reminiscing on that point but I do agree with Sparta at least on the expectation that I can't see him getting any better in the future than he is now. He's at the top of his career, he's making good choices in the car, he's reliably avoiding non-finishes and making few mistakes. He's maximising his points for the championship. The only way for him to improve now would be to get even faster. If he manages to get quicker at his age and at this stage of his career, well for me that would be an incredible achievement.

It may happen - indeed it does almost seem like he has got faster in the last couple of years - but I doubt it. I think he's at his peak now.

Max may get faster but he will definitely get more reliable. Eventually. He may never reach Prost or Hamilton levels but he's got speed to compensate.

Leclerc also has speed and is making a lot of mistakes, common for a relatively inexperienced driver, though I must say that Hamilton's consistency in his first year was a standout feature. Leclerc has a taste for winning now. He knows he can do it. Experience also will make him more reliable and consistent. At the moment he's at the maximum attack all the time and has gotten away with it at Monza but it will, and has, cost him on other occasions.

Of those two, Max still stands out for me as the next generation's driver to beat, and Leclerc looks like he has enough to keep Max honest at least and stop him running away with it for the next 15 years.

No, Vettel has hit his own brick wall !

What is happening to Lewis happens to every sportsman, and they all handle their realisation in different ways.

Nevertheless it's fair to conclude Lewis will walk to another WDC in the Mercedes

Of course all sportsman hit their peak at some point in their careers. I just think it’s a bit early to be rolling that line out. He got as much out of the car as he could in a race Ferrari were, not nailed on, but certainly few people are surprised they won. Yes the young guys are coming but as I said earlier he went for the win when he didn’t need to. He’s up for the fight.
