No one expects the Formula Oppo! Our chief weapon is surprise, fear and surprise; two chief weapons, fear, surprise, and ruthless efficiency! Er, among our chief weapons are: fear, surprise, ruthless efficiency, and near fanatical devotion to the Pope! Um, I’ll come in again...

Previously on Formula Oppo, this happened. Hot damn, no one saw that coming. Ferrari locked out the front row for the start of the race, but Bottas stormed to the front and built up a commanding lead. Sebastian started mounting a charge and when Valteri pitted and Sebastian stayed out, it looked like that was it for Mercedes hopes. But the flying Fin managed to retake the lead and fend off the Ferrari to the end. Kimi had a safe third and Lewis was just off form floundering in fourth. Meanwhile at McLaren...

This week we head to Spain, where Alonso gets to DNF in front of his home crowd... On the opposite end of the spectrum, holy shit, we might actually have a legitimate title fight on our hands. Ferrari has found their legs again and Mercedes knows it. Now if only Renault could find a bit more ponies...
