This weekend sees the end of year driver shuffle in full force.
Sainz moves from Toro Rosso to Renault
Kvyat gets a recall back to the Toro Rosso
Brendon Hartley gets a start in the Toro Rosso
Jolyon Palmer gets the boot from Renault.

Lewis Hamilton and Mercedes have a mortgage on this race and I don't think it will stop.
Sebastian Vettel needs a change of luck but will not be enough to change the result.
Valtteri Bottas should fill the final podium position.

The wind is causing all sorts of trouble.
Romain Grosjean spins into the gravel and loses the session.
Max Verstappen loses the rear and his lap time.
Many are exceeding track limits on the penultimate corner.
