Quite lucky, but you earn your luck.

I must say that we needed some good luck after all this bad luck we had all this time.It's only fair.

Bad luck strikes again. Sainz reported problems on the KERS. Hopefully that won't cost much.

A lot of cars in a couple of seconds. Bad pitstop or strategy call can drop you down from 3rd to 8th.

If he can keep the tyre good by being out of the dirty wake then this could come good for Carlos

Does Sainz has a problem with MGU? That is what I heard in the tv coverage. Norris cant catch up Ocon. I guess softs are beginning to "fade".

Another second due to the right front not going on well for NOR. Those pitstops really need to be sharper next year. It’s not sharp enough

Ric isn't catching him, in fact the gap is slowly widening, so can't be too bad.

I'd say we've had a lot of luck recently, perez issues 2 races in a row for a start.

Sainz is controlling the 3rd place at the moment. Norris though might lose 2 positions after the others pit. He's not reducing the distance as he should with the fresher medium.

After the pit stop Sainz should be able to move faster with the fresher medium unless he is saving tyres.
