Hamilton had better tires and better exit from the last corner. He also had an inside line up the hill and thus had to cover less distance.
The inside line means he can't drive as fast, especially with compromised downforce.
No, the inside line means he can get on the throttle earlier because he forced gasly to take a tight line into the corner, thus compromising him on the exit. If you can't understand this simple concept of racing then there's nothing left to discuss. Hamilton had every advantage possible and couldn't pull it off in that case.
Hamilton's DF loss was negligible, only a little part of endplate was missing. He had practically new tires and a much superios car to gasly. At that stage he was probably 1.5-2s per lap quicker.
