Maybe RP try and make one more stop for Perez and only one for Stroll.

Still a long way to go. Do you think RP will go for one pit stop? How are the times of Norris?

Is Chucky trying to make it to the end of the race on these mediums ? running .6 - .8 slower a lap than Sainz.

Unless Lando is saving tires like crazy, he just doesn’t have great pace today

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".
It's not a problem to be exact. Sainz seems unhappy how electrical power is used throughout the lap. Not sure how significant it is, but he feels he could be a bit faster.

Maybe McLaren expected to fight in DRS trains and uses less power at the end of the straights.

I think he will do one more stop. Stroll has 44 laps with softs!! Norris changed his in lap 22. Stroll is going for one pit stop.

Stroll, Ocon, Albon and Perez (kind of) will try one stop. Rest of midfield two stop.

OK explain this to me. How was Stroll a mble to hold the softs for so much time and Norris couldn't? How also does Perez do that? He seems to be having a way to save tires or the car is too soft with the tyres?

Sainz is just our better driver. A shame that he’s leaving.. Norris is a fine #2 driver. Has been like that for 2 seasons now. Nothing new there. But I agree that usually he performs better than this.

Edit: ah I see he’s losing a lot at the end of the straight?

The problem isn't how long they went on the tires rather how slow Norris went on Fresh Meds.

Can they try the one stop with Carlos? Ocon ends up on the podium if they go for the two stop. They should have put him on the hard ...

Sainz is doing way better. Why Norris has trouble performing?

Unless Lando pits in the next 5 laps, he won’t finish in the points... Even if he does Pit for new Softs, he would need to be 1 second per lap faster than the midfield and that will be a tall order.

He just doesn’t have much pace today... That happens
