Looking ahead to Monaco- how was sector 3 looking for everyone?
I think I saw a best sector 3 breakdown where Max edged out the Mercs with Ferrari a couple of tenths back.
Is this how you’d expect it to go at Monaco? I think Red Bull will get the edge on Merc there from what I’ve seen visually but looking for some more data- especially Sector 3 long runs ideally.
Ferrari not far behind
Im not sure on where Merc vs RedBull stand on S3. Two reasons for this, in qualifying, on their fastest laps Lewis took a tighter line in to turn 13 to avoid the gravel put there by Perez. I'm not sure if Max did the same or if it was cleaned up by someone else before he got there ?
Then in the race, when they were on equal tyres, Lewis was close to Max at the end of the back straight where S3 starts. So for the remainder of the lap he fell back with being too close with the aero turbulence so we never got to see a good comparison between the 2 drivers. If I had to pick between the 2, I would go for RedBull just as they have a shorter wheelbase.
