Sainz finally picking up the pace and lapping in the low 1.17’s... It was surprising that he was just matching Giovanazzi’s lap times
Not really, he's trying to get those tyres to last to the end without another stop, he's gotta do pretty much an entire race on them.
I know they are trying to maintain the distance to Stroll... The question is, would be worth to push on the Hards and do an effective 2 stop race? If the pace is there and with one of shortest pitlane times, might be an interesting option.

But, the team has way smarter people than me to figure out what the right strategy is

Better just keeping up and waiting for Stroll to pit and see how it shakes out.

Sainz is 12secs in front of Kvyat. how much a pit stop costs? and even if he is behind him, he could attack with fresh mediums. But we kiss 9th place goodbye.

17 seconds... The question is if they could open that gap that much and close to Gasly and come out with Medium tires... The problem is that they do that, they miss the opportunity to pass Stroll when he pits.

Sainz consistently outpacing Gasly now. Good pace, as I assume he is still nursing the tyres

Gasly is stuck behind Stroll... That’s why... Gasly just tried to make the pass on Stroll unsuccessfully.

Verstappen lapping really slow in the last few laps

Stroll pits... Comes out 7 seconds behind Carlos... That will be the challenge now.

Gasly already improving his pace

Yes, he’s falling behind now. He may have to pit again

Now we are 9th and we better prepare to fight for it. We need to hope the hards will hold as much as the mediums of the one in 10th. I dont think we might be able to hold 9th.

Well... Right now Stroll is lapping about half a second faster than Sainz... But, Sainz could be just saving the tires for when he might actually need it... The gap (4 seconds) seems to have stabilized a little bit in the last couple of laps.
