Yes you are right but in the end Verstappen took the 25 points. Sainz wasn't going for the kill in qualy or behind Verstappen. Leclerc stop was slow. It's very little weaknesses (this weekend) but it's not the top level Hamilton/Merc had in the 2nd half of 2021 which allowed him to (almost) win the title.chrisc90 wrote: ↑Sun Jun 19, 2022 9:40 pmI think Ferrari actually had a decent strategy this weekend. Given the slow stop for Lec with the rear jack man being a bit eager which put him a little out of position. Capitalised on the virtual safety car stop.
Big upgrades for several teams expected arent their? So nobody knows either way
Hamilton will be very strong, it's his strongest venue alongside Budapest and Montreal usually.
Leclerc tires were 20 laps older than Ocon's... What are you people on about?ringo wrote:I dont think Leclerc would have done anything different to Sainz. Leclerc struggled to overtake Ocon after both launched off the hairpin. The Ferrari of leclerc didnt have enough traction today.
Mick needs some points. He was doing really well and his qualy pace has improved.
Alonso again with bad luck, and just not being able to get a good clean race. He had good race pace this time around and was on for a solid finish, at least 4th.
Gasly was invisible today and so was Vettel and Lando. Though I believe Lando had engine issues.
Well deserved. Bottas actually had to brake, not just lift. Should have been an instant penalty.214270 wrote:5sec Pen for ALO for weaving, drops behind the Alfas
Yup, he was weaving too much.
Alonso after the hype yesterday fell like a stone today. The alpine didn't have any pace, however, his antics after he lost out to ocon was hilarious. He was saying "I need to be ahead, I was 100 times faster than him" reminded me of his famous "I brought 7 tenths" claim I'm 2007 and in that desperation he blocked bottas very hard...he knew exactly what he was doing.
