They should have helped him by negating the grip loss due to the floor damage as best they could with grip from fresh sets of tyres.Emag wrote: ↑Sun Aug 01, 2021 4:18 pmHelp him with what man really. Daniel is already struggling this season as it is. Add to that the damage in the floor and you got a race car that was probably barely going faster than Williams today.
The real loss for the team here was Bottas going full kowabunga into the first corner and taking Lando out.
That's where the race went from almost too perfect to a complete disaster.
I support Alonso as a driver, so at least for me there was a silver lining watching him battle with Hamilton. But other than that, this race was atrocious as a McLaren fan.
What could have been ...
Red Bull made the right call with Verstappen and Mclaren made the wrong call with Ric. Hopefully they’ll learn from it for the future
