  1. Interesting to compare the Red Bulls and Mercedes’s: in the first two stints on dry tires, Mercedes was initially very fast, but lost out towards the end of the stint. The third and fourth stint saw Mercedes being way off the pace straight away.

    Looking further down the field, I was really impressed with Pic: he had a slow first stop, but from then on he was faster than the other three guys. Towards the end he was pretty much on par with Bianchi’s pace, but because he didn’t have the slow stop at the beginning, he finished ahead by quite some margin. Looking at the lap time graph, it can e shown that Pic’s stints were more consistent with a less severe drop-off towards the end of his stints.

    1. It seems Mercedes started saving fuel very early on which explains why their lap times began to drop, at the same time, their tyres were not holding up.

  2. Not sure what Ferrari achieved with their late pit stop. It was their fastest pit stop, but he still ended up 8th behind Kimi and Sergio. And he then reeled in Romain real quick and disposed him off too. Back where he started?

    Another thing I don’t understand is why most drivers went for a 4 stopper? The second stint that the front runners did was about 15-18 laps long. The race was 56 laps long minus 4-5 laps on inters. So remaining 52 laps could have been done in 3 stints.

    Had Button continued, we would have an even more interesting race I feel.

    1. I think his tyres were falling off the cliff at that time. He should have stopped a couple of laps early, but he wouldn’t be able to threaten the Mercedes anyway. He probably tried the fastest lap.

  3. @keithcollantine, didn’t kimi start 10th after his penalty?, above shows him losing 5 places in lap instead of 2

  4. I’m going out of a limb here but during the season we’ll see Bianchi lapping Chilton at least once.

    1. /of = on
