If the job was genuinly done, then there would have been no need for Kamui to lift.
Agreed – so what I'm saying is with kamui only barely along side he could have thought reasonably "hey, there's a fair chance with the --- mirrors these cars have, and the fact that I'm in a blind spot that he's going to think the job's done and move across. Because of that, I'm going to lift a little and enter the corner marginally slower. It's going to get me tucked up right behind him and I might have a chance into Rivage if I really think I can get him back."
He didn't have to – but it would have been sensible.
Kamui was very much alongside Hamilton:
A driver can not be expected to lift off just because there is a possibility that Hamilton will make a mistake and decide to drive into his path.
