Bottas mate..... You don't fight when we want you to but when there's no point in doing so...

Mercedes bossing the strategy and have the faster car.

Literally no chance Max holds Lewis off.

Red Bull are absolute amateurs. Take Verstappen in a lap after Hamilton and he would still be ahead and have brand new softs vs. used tires. Absolutely amateur hour, Verstappen will be fuming

Verstappen would have been behind Bottas and possibly Hamilton if they had done that.

Lewis is relentless. What a driver.
Max and Red Bull are now beginning to understand just how good Lewis Hamilton actually is. With of course the backing of the Mercedes team.
And it shows accurately the difference between Hamilton and Bottas.
Would Russell not be a lot closer.

Lewis has to be driver of the day, chasing down a 22 second lead.
Masterclass form Lewis and Mercedes today.
Exactly mate. It is a nothing vote.
Poll position and winning by making up 22 second on Verstappen...

Mercedes totally out thinking redbull today. They got the tactics spot in in the end.
Hamilton just saying that it was always part of their strategy because a one stop is very difficult.

Wait, so Hamilton had 2 stops and Verstappen 1? And Hamilton still managed to bridge that time gap quickly enough?

Verstappen would be behind Bottas then and he would have never caught Hamilton after that. It's a lot easier to get the strategy right when it's 2 vs 1, Bottas keeping up with Verstappen for most of the race was what allowed Mercedes to put that strategy in place. RB need Perez to improve fast. There's little more they could have done today

Hilarious how people on here still buy into the Merc underdog rhetoric :lol:
If Lewis didnt pit for the 2nd time, Max would win this race easy, he lead from the 1st corner in 1st lap, it Max race to lose up until that Lewis 2nd pit stop which RB could counter the next lap and they didn't.
This year RB could really take the challenge to Merc and possibly win it, their car looks faster and it evident in race aswell with Max.
Today, they got ouwit for 2nd time with same tactic after Hungary 2019. Underdog? yeah, it looks like Merc is the underdog alright in this race for trying something for the win because they couldnt catch Max the leader.
