NOR race pace is fine. It’s a game of tyre conservation and when to take life out of it. LEC pace is indeed v good. NOR is faster than OCO. SAI going for a 2 stop race. I’m still unsure whether LEC is also going to 2 stop, personally I don’t think so
Do you think Lando will not make another pitstop? They said on radio that Leclerc will go to the end.

Not this race. Lerclerc is increasing his gap, and Sainz is catching Daniel. Like I said, expectations are higher than reality. Lando catching Ocon now though.
I disagree. The car is faster than the Ferraris. Not by much but it is. It's the fact that we didn't managed to start in front of them on a stage where you can hardly pass.
Ferrari race pace is quicker than us this weekend - I think that’s clear to see to everyone!

Agreed. LEC pace is 0.2/0.3s quicker than RIC. So if they both 1 stop then it’s fair to say, FER have the pace this weekend. But we aren’t far off.

Can NOR get OCO?

Charles is definitely going pretty nice around here, but we can't expect to finish ahead of Ferrari all year. Remember in Bahrain it was Lando who finished ~14s ahead of Charles. There will be tracks that will suit McLaren more. Today, where they are not as fast as Ferrari, damage limitation is key.

Wow 😳 RIC better be able to overtake OCO when he catches up with NOR.

It’s also too hard to follow and overtake... We saw that with Perez and Daniel, he eventually made the move, but with an RBR with a lot more pace, he was stuck behind it... Lando’s pace is compromised by those ahead him

Man these late stops are ruining everything. I hope Bottas can get Leclerc back or we are about to lose a lot of points to Ferrari here.

Not a lot to lose really... Not enough pace to pass Ocon, better to try to do it on a different tire... Enough Deta to pass RUS and ALO

Lando will catch Ocon at this rate though!

Norris back to P9... The next 2 laps will be interesting in terms of pace difference

Jesus, this pace difference is really unexpected. Might actually catch Ocon.

Lando taking 0.6 seconds in S1 and 0.8 seconds in S2... 8 seconds behind OCO... He will catch him and should have tire delta to attempt an overtake
