Not the end of the world I don’t think.Surely not being on pole isn’t that bad for Lewis? Max will be rapid on the softs so you’ll be struggling to keep him behind either way. Lightning lap though from Red Bull.
I think if he is P2 to start, and P2 after the start/first lap, then he won't undercut because it would negate the advantage of the Med vs Soft... that leaves it to either RB to do a 2 stop and be on fresher tyres but chasing Hamilton at the end, or the other way around with Hamilton chasing down Verstappen on fresher tyres if both teams go for just 1 stop.I think with the soft v medium situation, Hamilton isn’t as impacted by being in P2.
Yeah will be interesting if he’s any quicker here.Not the end of the world I don’t think.
Hamilton gave up a lot on that T4 lock up.
Lewis made a mistake too, 500 millis can't be due to the partial tow.no chance without a tow.
Yeah that's a feck up, Bottas is 6th as well, should have called in for a two.Mercedes somehow made a meal of it.
He was outright quick even without the tow. He'll be rapid in his first stint on the softs tomorrow, Mercedes will need to make sure they have significantly better pace on Mediums and Hards.That’s a huge advantage for Red Bull and Max there.
I think it's all about the race and strategy.Surely not being on pole isn’t that bad for Lewis? Max will be rapid on the softs so you’ll be struggling to keep him behind either way. Lightning lap though from Red Bull.
He got pulled along both straights by Perez, really clever by Red Bull, Merc have never had the same nous when it comes to using both drivers.how the feck did Max find that speed 7 10th quicker than Q2
Slipstream from Perez.how the feck did Max find that speed 7 10th quicker than Q2
Totally agree. Although Red Bulls race pace looks good.Honestly might not be the worst thing for Hamilton to not have Max up his arse from the off
I don't think so.Red Bulls looking super quick today. Max's to lose tomorrow!
