Finally a race with some clear ups and downs!
Hamilton. Starts from second last (Even though he got 55 demotions to Alonso's 35) and winds up with a podium. Yes, he was lucky there was carnage ahead of him, and a red flag, but he made the most of his opportunity. There were plenty of other races behind the carnage who could have taken advantage and didn't. He raced sensibly but intelligently. A textbook back-of-the-field-start race.
Alonso. A former double WDC, he knows how to drive sensibly and intelligently. If it wasn't for Hamilton, Alonso would have had the drive of the race.
Ricciardo. Sometimes in life all you need is to show up with a smile on your face. He's on the cusp of greatness, and today was another sterling example.
Kimi. He means more to F1 than any other driver on the grid. A true racer and not interested in anything getting in the way of that. He needs to stay forever. His race was compromised and he just did what he does. I can think of a few drivers who need to learn from his example.
K-Mag. He let his car get away from. An f1 car is tough to drive, they need the best drivers being at their best 100% of the time. No room for a lapse at this level.
Sainz. When your car is broken, get off the track. Seriously.
Wehlein. Pay attention. Sometimes the car in front will go slower than your car.
There was one more... I'm not sure if anyone else noticed but... I think it was the guy who took over for Kvyat. Max something? He's lucky that most of the other drivers are competent professionals. If we had 22 guys driving like him, we'd have 22 wrecks. He might cling to the idea that he wasn't breaking any rules, but he was not driving safely. They're not out there to be friends, but all of them are out there to drive another day.
Not heroes, not zeroes, but noteworthy
Rosberg. 100% competent race. He's getting the raw end of history. He's doing a great job, but when the chips are down, he doesn't deliver. No chips down today, and he was on point.
Engineers at Enstone. Thank you for showing how safe a modern F1 car can be in a horrific crash. It's been a while since we saw a car wrecked that much, but Sainz walked away (not unscathed, but far better than that Renault would lead us to believe).
The Marshalls. They could have done a lot today, but they didn't. Everything was settled on track. It wasn't satisfactory, but I think that she 'show' benefited from the hands off approach.
Christian Horner. RBR keeps giving him 'high maintenance' drivers. I don't know how long he can handle having to publicly support these kids.

A wise old farmer went to town to buy a new pickup truck that he saw
advertised in the paper for a certain price. After telling the salesman which truck he wanted, they set down to do the paperwork. The salesman handed the farmer the bill, and the farmer declared, "This isn't the price I saw!".
The salesman went on to tell the old wise farmer how he was getting
extras such as power steering, power brakes, power windows, special
tires, etc., and that was what took the price up. The farmer, needing
the truck badly, paid the price and went home.
A few months later, the salesman called up the farmer and said, "My
son is in 4-H and he needs a cow for a project. Do you have any for
sale?" The farmer replied, "Yes, I have a few cows I would sell for
$500 apiece, Come and look at them and take your pick." The salesman
said he and his son would be right out. After spending a few hours in
the field checking out all the farmer's cows, the two decided on one
and the salesman proceeded to write out a check for $500. The farmer
said------"Now wait a minute, that's not the final price of the cow,
you're getting extras with it and you have to pay for that too". "What
extras?" asked the salesman. Below is the list the farmer gave the
salesman for the final price of the cow..............................
Product storing equipment.........$60.00
4 spigots @$10 ea.........$40.00
Automatic fly swatter........$38.00
GRAND TOTAL....... $1,233.00

I've been doing a ton of mountain biking this summer and threw the old GoPro on the handlebars for one of my downhill runs that starts most of my bike tours in the area (I have to get to the valley floor to start most of them). Hope you enjoy. We start in the hotel parking lot.
And for the record, I've only landed on my nose once this summer and I mostly hurt my leg (it's better now). A few close calls, but that's what makes it fun.
