Difficult one. Hamilton drove brilliantly from 7th to 2nd made no (real) mistakes, passed his teammate who was on the arguably better strategy and was the only driver to make the soft tyre really work at the end […]
roadrunner commented on the post, Ferrari weren't quick enough to win in Hungary regardless of strategy – Binotto 1 week ago
They had the pace, at least with Leclerc, but only on the medium tyres. They must/should have known that from practice. So it’s no rocket science that a good strategy would be to fit those tyres for as many laps […]
roadrunner commented on the post, Verstappen hails Red Bull's "really good strategy" after winning from tenth 1 week ago
As usual their strategy was great. Aggressive and proactive but S-M-M was always the way to go. I’m surprised how few teams went this way. You have flexibility and get rid off the least favourable tyre early on […]
Agreed. They were not in the mood to take any risks. Having a tyre blowing up must have been their worst nightmare especially after what happened to Leclerc.
The pressure on the whole team must be immense.
The stop immediately after having passed Perez didn’t make no sense at all. They should either have committed to a two stopper at least half a dozen laps earlier or go to the end.
In my opinion the latter was […]
Wouldn’t it be much cheaper, easier and fairer to install a sensor in the cars to measure the bouncing? If it exceeds a level that is considered dangerous the car will be shown a black flag.
To prevent that, the […]
The problem at Austria was that there weren’t any cameras in a lot of corners
I don’t know. Ferrari, with the exception of Imola (sprint) and to a lesser extent Miami, didn’t really have any problems with deg.
Red Bull in the other hand suffered slightly more in Bahrein and Spain and a […]
Me too, but that’s not going to happen…
Thankfully they resisted the temptation to go full safty car, though.
The racing could be resumed rather quickly and except for the inevitable cheap pit stops for some, […]

Teamorders even before lap one are not a nice thing to have, but when you’re fighting a one driver only Team you must at least have some clear rules of engagement.
Perez would never have been allowed to […]
Maybe they want to make up for 2019?
Pretty much a reminder of Hockenheim 2018… Slow decision making, bad leadership and bad strategy calls.
I think crashgate showed us that that is not necessarily a good idea…
Agreed. Having missed the first VSC left Perez between a rock and a hard place. He had to much deg to compete with the sister car and it was still to early to pit for a normal one stopper.
But when you’re the […]
Well, if both of them were really racing each other they could and should have boxed Checo while he was still in the lead instead of letting him struggle round and round. But that would have meant he got the […]
If they had started and then dropped a red flag after just a few racing laps what would have happened to the 2 hour rule?
Would the clock keep ticking like it did mid-race?
If so, the decision to delay was spot […]
In fairness to him, it wasn’t Verstappen who crashed
Well, accidents happen and sometimes it’s going in your favour (Imola) sometimes not (like today). Leclerc is always the first car up the road that reduces the risks as well.
Or even regarding the first race. Best Mercedes 0.680 behind Leclerc (who did do two runs at the time) and also on a longer lap.
So let’s wait and see. Qualifying was a
bit disappointing again. Maybe the […]
